Analysing $STAKE token transfers

A breakdown of the top 20 stake holders by application.

What is this project about? #

This project contains a somewhat in depth analysis of the STAKE token tranfers. I analysed the distribution of STAKE tokens over time and across applications and aggregated overall holdings.

Why did I do this? #

I am a baghodler of STAKE tokens lol so I wanted to understand more about STAKE to figure out why it keeps dumping in price. Yes, I figured out why it keeps dumping in price.

How did I do it? #

Most of my data comes from pulling the data off the Ethereum blockchain with web3.py. I also used plotly for creating the charts because I wanted to gain more experience with it. Initially I had plans to deploy this as a dashboard but decided to scrap that idea since I don't have enough free dyno hours on Heroku.

The source code for this analysis can be found in this github repo. Follow the instructions on README.md if you want to look at the analysis. I am still considering whether or not I should buy a raspi 4 to host it but I will update here if I do host it somewhere.
