Blockhead: The HackFS Web 3.0 Update

Created At

HackFS 2021

Project Description

I'm a front-end developer and designer continuing on my quest to build the most flexible, user-friendly, transparent and decentralized interface for the blockchain/web 3.0 multiverse! For ETHGlobal HackFS 2021, I've refactored the codebase and added new features focused around web 3.0 technologies.

Catch up on Blockhead's existing features by watching my demos from previous hackathons!

  • ETHGlobal Scaling Ethereum:
  • ETHGlobal HackMoney:

Blockhead is a user-friendly interface for tracking, visualizing and exploring your blockchain assets and web 3.0 activity.

  • Track all your crypto holdings. Connect your wallets and see your tokens, DeFi balances and NFTs in one place.
  • Visualize your crypto activity. See your transactions in new ways through interactive charts and visualizations.
  • Explore the Ethereum Multiverse. Browse blockchain transactions and statistics for any EVM compatible chain!

Blockhead is now on Gitcoin Grants! Help Blockhead become the single best user experience for viewing and interacting with the crypto/web 3.0 multiverse.

How it's Made
