TrueBlocks builds and publishes an index that lets you explore the Ethereum blockchain from your local machine. The data comes directly from an Ethereum node and can be accessed from your local desktop without third-party APIs.

For deeper analysis such as conducting an anti-fraud analysis we would want to explore entire histories of addresses, calls and traces which requires an index. With TrueBlocks local index we can effectively serve an application filtered and aggregated data efficiently.

ETHDam is a Hackathon & Conference that gathered over 500 DeFi and Privacy builders on the 20th and 21st of May 2023 in Amsterdam.

Privacy is normal. Following the arrest of Alex Pertsev, a Tornado Cash developer in the Netherlands, ETHDam 2023 is determined to counter the chilling effects of the lawsuit and bridge worlds to discuss the future of privacy and encourage to build on the shoulders of cypherpunk giants.

ETHDam is powered by CryptoCanal, - a blockchain education and events platform growing in Amsterdam, spreading its roots to Rotterdam and Zurich. ETHDam 2024 is on the map already!
