Why the Need for this Proposal?

There is no doubt that Aura Finance has comprehensive analytics and dashboards previously created by the community. The dashboards and analytics however are read-only and cannot be customised by community members, especially members that are non-technical and cannot write SQL Queries.

Additionally, while visiting the Aura Discord, we witnessed a dedicated channel for Dune Dashboards, where users requested to see particular metrics and contributors created the dashboards for them.

This proposal empowers the community, Aura team, and users to create, fork and embed such metrics in a matter of minutes without writing a single SQL Query using our intuitive no-code query builder and user-friendly drag-and-drop dashboard builder. By using DataBOTS these metrics can be instantly accessed by the rest of the community on Discord with simple commands.

We believe this would prove to be a great resource of information for the community and easily foster adoption with data-driven decision-making.

Along with the above-mentioned Value Propositions, the Aura Ecosystem Benefits from the following:

  • Access to our community of Data Analysts and Data Enthusiasts
  • A subgraph native approach
  • Real-time Data using Substreams and Firehose
  • Extend community engagement with No-code analytics
  • Dashboard Embedding Capabilities
  • DappLooker Subgraph Visualizer for Aura Subgraphs
  • Access to Upcoming Analytics AI Studio
  • And other unique features for Aura Business Intelligence

Exciting proposal!
Bringing Aura Finance and DappLooker together for instant DataBOTs on Discord and Telegram will make our community more active and help us analyze data easily without any coding—this unique approach will provide better insights


Nice proposal. Looks promising


Great feature I must say, this can actually change the way we interact with web3 data. Making complex data easily accessible I would have never thought of that !!.


I think this is a great proposal that would benefit the Aura Finance community and the DappLooker platform. :raised_hands:


Welcome to the forum, everyone!

Please edit this proposal to include a specification section, as in, what specific action does the Aura DAO need to take to enact this proposal, along with the Ethereum address for funding.

And are you looking to move this to vote this week?


Thank you @Contributor for the warm welcome and your response!

For some reason, I am not able to edit the proposal, (please do let know how can I go about it) posting the suggested updates below for now:

Request for the grant:

We believe this integration will best serve the interests of the Aura Community and foster engagement in unforeseen ways. We kindly request a grant of $15k USD equivalent in AURA Tokens.

The Aura Tokens will be locked for 3 weeks once received, post the locking period, we request to use Aura Tokens freely.

We request the funds to be transferred to the following ethereum address:

  • dapplooker.eth, which is 0x7239B1896ad2b6A9D3aA6C4B12D8993E78fb67Dc

Specifications for Aura DAO:

Once the grant has been approved, we will require support from the Aura DAO to ensure smooth integration of Aura Finance with DappLooker and DataBOTs. The action items for Aura DAO are categorized in 3 phases as follows:


  • Provide a list of all Subgraphs and Smart Contracts of Aura Finance to be indexed
  • DappLooker will create a list of quick commands. The DAO can also provide a list of preferred bot commands to be included (e.g., Current TVL, Current Aura Token Price, Weekly TVL, etc.).


  • Help us connect with the Admin of Aura Discord and Telegram to support them in the one-click integration process and creating a dedicated channel.


  • Assist with Co-Marketing efforts, such as amplifying tweet threads and blog posts on Aura, hosting Twitter spaces, organizing Discord workshops, etc.

This proposal now includes a Specification section with detailed steps for the DAO.

And are you looking to move this to vote this week?

Yes, we are looking to move the proposal for voting this week, our target date is 25th Jan, i.e by tomorrow.

Thanks again for the suggestions on the proposal and please feel free to add more queries, suggestions, etc as required.


Gm, brother! Make a new proposal, label it [AIP-62], and drop it in the proposal category with the new changes. Remove the images as well, they don’t translate well to Snapshot.



Thank you for the help! Will do the suggested asap.


Is this something the community is really excited about? I am not sure. Projects like high quality dune dashboards or integration to things like tokenterminal are. What is the actual user base of your products? Asking for $15k to integrate in your already existing pipeline is rather steep IMO. What I also dislike is that one has to pay a subscription fee when using your services - I personally strive for open-source and this is the opposite:

So if I understand your proposal correctly: you want Aura to pay for integration so you can ask for more money on your subscription plan if users want to build dashboards for Aura?

This proposal empowers the community, Aura team, and users to create, fork and embed such metrics in a matter of minutes without writing a single SQL Query using our intuitive no-code query builder and user-friendly drag-and-drop dashboard builder. By using DataBOTS these metrics can be instantly accessed by the rest of the community on Discord with simple commands.

This sounds to me more like empowering the community behind a pay-wall to be honest :sweat_smile:

Of course, I am biased as a creator of an Aura analytics dashboard but I am very skeptical this adds value to the DAO.


Hey, @Xeonus, thank you for your thoughtful response and for taking the time to review our proposal and platform.

I’d like to provide some additional clarity on the proposal to address your concerns:

All the features would be available to the Aura Community for free, and not behind a paywall.

DappLooker is more than just an analytics platform; it’s a business intelligence hub equipped with unique and user-friendly tools not found on other platforms. As a subgraph-native platform, it offers a broader spectrum of tools beyond analytics.

Your concerns are valid. However, Dune Dashboards require SQL queries. Not all community members possess the technical expertise for SQL, and even for those who do, the process can be slower and time-consuming. As an Aura analytics dashboard creator, this proposal is designed to be exceptionally helpful, allowing community members like yourself to create a dashboard in less than 60 minutes. For a visual reference, please check out this quick demo video I made here to showcase the possibilities of creating a dashboard in under 5 minutes.

While platforms like Token Terminal are undoubtedly valuable, they often function as read-only platforms. The community cannot fork, modify, and manipulate these dashboards at will and instantly. With DappLooker, not only can you create such dashboards, but our API SDK also empowers you to develop dApps akin to Token Terminal.

Here are some key benefits the proposal brings to the Aura community:

  1. Aura Finance Subgraph Analyzer: Aura Subgraph Analyzer
  2. Instant Charts and Dashboards on Discord and Telegram: Imagine pulling weekly/daily TVL, Pools, etc charts, and analytics instantly on demand.
  3. Free, No-Code, and Faster Analytics: The proposal facilitates faster and easier dashboard creation for the entire community.
  4. X-Ray Feature: This feature allows automated charts and insights in a single click.
  5. More such features will be showcased in post-approval marketing.

For further clarification, DappLooker is primarily free for individual members. Subscriptions come into play for dApps with multiple data sources, such as multiple subgraphs, subquery, off-chain data, multiple smart contracts, etc. Under this proposal, all Aura data will be accessible for free and presented in a transformed, easy-to-navigate, and visual manner based on a well-defined schema (not just raw transactions). Image below for reference:

I hope this helps address your concerns. Please feel free to reach out if you have any further questions or if there’s anything specific you’d like more information on. We’re here to ensure this proposal brings significant value to the Aura community, especially valuable dashboard creators like yourself.

Happy to also provide a comprehensive walkthrough of the platform to any community member:
