What is Flipside Crypto? And how are they helping Terra?

Flipside Crypto provides on-chain analytics, including free structured and labeled data that users can use to create helpful dashboards. Flipside rewards analysts with crypto bounties for the insights they create!

Terra activated the Flipside x Terra bounty program by delegating 500K LUNA to their validator, which helps secure the network. The yield generated supports the continuous creation of data analytics by the community, for the whole Terra ecosystem.

YOU can begin today! Sign up for Flipside’s Velocity tool and you will be granted access to their HUGE variety of data. Then explore and improve your SQL skills and create a masterpiece of your own…

I personally have been using Flipside’s data for many different things. From learning and improving my SQL skills to participating in multiple bounties throughout the past few weeks. I truly believe that Flipside enables anyone with any level of skill to create something awesome.
