Layer 2 Analytics and Education:


a world where the extraordinary power of blockchain knows no bounds, opening up a universe of limitless potential. A realm where transparency, collaboration, and innovation reign supreme, transcending the conventional confines of finance.

In this captivating tapestry of decentralized opportunities, pioneers and visionaries from all corners of the globe unite with a shared purpose: to create a more inclusive and fair world. Fueled by this common belief, they generously exchange knowledge, ideas, and resources, propelling each other forward and surpassing the limits of what was once deemed possible.

Within this visionary landscape, smart cities emerge as beacons of sustainability, harnessing the remarkable capabilities of blockchain to optimize resource allocation, streamline governance, and nurture thriving communities. Supply chains undergo a metamorphosis, becoming transparent and traceable, empowering consumers to make choices that align with their values.

But the transformative power of blockchain doesn't stop there. Its influence permeates diverse domains such as healthcare, education, and social impact. Medical records become fortified with security, portability, and accessibility, revolutionizing patient care and unlocking groundbreaking research opportunities. Education systems embrace the potential of blockchain, unlocking new avenues for verifying credentials and fostering lifelong learning. And social initiatives leverage the decentralized networks, empowering individuals and communities to drive positive change on a global scale.

Imagine a world where the ethos of decentralization intertwines seamlessly with compassion, empathy, and social responsibility. A world where personal success becomes the driving force for the betterment of society as a whole. This blockchain renaissance we envision nurtures an environment where technological advancements harmonize with a profound commitment to creating a positive social impact, ensuring that no one is left behind.

We haven't reached that point yet – there's still much to be done. But together, we shall embark on this journey. The future awaits us.

growthepie Was Born!

In November 2022, we created a prototype – and shortly thereafter, in early December, we submitted a grant application to the Ethereum Foundation. To our delight, by the end of January 2023, we received news that our grant application had been accepted. It was in early February 2023 that our team, consisting of individuals across 5 different time zones, began the development phase. Then, on May 26th, 2023, at precisely 3:33 PM, growthepie was taken out of the oven, ready to be savored by our users.

When The Needs Become our Mission

We have recognized four crucial needs within the layer 2 space that can greatly benefit from our tailored problem-solving approach.

Transparency: Building Trust and Integrity

In the world of Ethereum's Layer 2 solutions, transparency plays a crucial role in creating a fair and ethical environment for transactions. It goes beyond simply revealing the inner workings of the platform; transparency acts as a shield, assuring users that their investments and funds are secure. By shedding light on the decentralized ecosystem, transparency deters fraudulent activities and holds all participants accountable for their actions. To maintain trust and preserve the integrity of Layer 2 solutions, prioritizing transparency is essential.

Reliability: Guiding You Through Complexity

As you navigate the dynamic landscape of Layer 2, reliable and up-to-date information is vital. At growthepie, we understand the importance of being a dependable data aggregator and a trusted guide for making informed decisions. We curate data from reliable sources like L2Beat and DefiLlama while developing our own metrics. Our mission is to empower you with the knowledge needed to comprehend the ever-changing world of Layer 2 projects. Through our comprehensive analytics interface, you can gain a clearer understanding of technologies and projects, enabling you to make confident choices.

More Users and Use Cases: Expanding Possibilities

Although Ethereum and Layer 2 solutions engage approximately 3 million unique addresses weekly, there is tremendous potential for growth. To bridge the gap and foster a more inclusive ecosystem, we must broaden the range of use cases. By attracting new users and encouraging innovation, we can cultivate a vibrant landscape of diverse applications. growthepie strives to be at the forefront of this expansion, providing opportunities and inspiring users to explore the potential of Layer 2 technologies. Together, we can drive the Ethereum ecosystem toward a more inclusive future.

Education: Nurturing Knowledge and Innovation

Attracting new users is only one part of the equation; offering proper guidance and education is equally crucial. growthepie is dedicated to providing comprehensive educational resources for navigating the complexities of Layer 2. We understand the challenges faced by intelligent individuals and aspiring developers in this space. Through our educational content, we aim to minimize risks and make the learning process less daunting. By empowering individuals with knowledge, we can foster innovation and drive the development of the Ethereum ecosystem.

With growthepie, you can expect:

  • Detailed Metrics: We provide comprehensive and up-to-date data on Layer 2 projects, including transaction count, number of active addresses, tvl, and more.

  • Blockspace Analytics: The main metrics only tell so much, which is why we want to dig deeper and analyze how exactly different Layer 2s are used (e.g. are some L2s mainly for gaming or financial use-cases?).

  • Project Comparisons: Easily compare Layer 2 projects and technologies side-by-side to understand their strengths and weaknesses.

  • Educational Resources: Learn about Layer 2 technologies, their benefits, and how they fit into the broader Ethereum ecosystem through our educational content.

Where The Magic Happens

In the depths of our digital kitchen, Matthias and Lorenz toil away, mining every nugget of valuable data they can get their hands on. Their relentless efforts ensure that we gather reliable information from trusted sources such as L2Beat, DefiLlama, CoinGecko, Flipside, and ZettaBlock. Through the magic of APIs, these streams of chain data flow into our workshop on a daily basis. But it doesn't stop there. Matthias and Lorenz, the master craftsmen, have designed intricate machineries that skillfully process this raw data, transforming it into the delightful metrics of analysis we crave.
