Without discouraging your proposal, which I find very interesting, wouldn’t it be the same to get these data from DUNE or by subscribing to Messari or Nansen and get the reports over there??


Messari & Nansen don’t do financial reports.
Some ACX Holders are not familiar with Dune Dashboards. Or are TradFi investors that allocated to crypto and don’t have the time to go looking into multiple data sources. There are also community members that would prefer all relevant data aggregated in one report.

Well, that is true Nansen and Messari does not provide individual financial reports, you are right, and Dune despite being a great tool is quite difficult to use in fact. The point here is that giving this information on a monthly basis will provide great information to users and incentivise newcomers to use the protocol, as everything is more readable.

Reviving this proposal with previous work examples :

I know Defillama is continuously improving its metrics on treasury data and I’m pretty sure there are a ton of other tools that will be innovating in this area, what exactly would be the value add using your service?

Very much supportive of formulating and synthesizing relevant metrics as it provides necessary means of understanding performance, improving accountability, and allocating resources appropriately. That being said, this very important imo and requires contributors to first define relevant metrics and then properly launch a bid process.
