A gift from Playgrounds to the Klimate community

Published Wed May 11 2022

Playgrounds, an organization that builds on-chain analytics tools for DAOs, has launched a tool dedicated to the KlimaDAO community. Klimates now have access to Klima Playgrounds, an on-chain educational environment that uses protocol simulations and informative content to help users generate insights about KlimaDAO’s tokenomics.


What is Klima Playgrounds?

Klima Playgrounds is designed as an easy-to-use analytics tool for any participant in KlimaDAO to create useful charts and visualizations without needing to know how to code or write SQL. The tool is divided into an Analytics Hub and a Simulator.

The Analytics Hub provides access to live on-chain data and data models through Subgrounds — a Playgrounds framework for querying, manipulating, and visualizing on-chain data indexed on The Graph network. Using Subgrounds, the app generates interactive data charts that can be expanded, annotated, downloaded, and customized.


While Dune provides access to the same information about price, market cap, carbon reserves, and treasury, the Klima Playgrounds Simulator also makes it possible to model out different scenarios with that data without having to write SQL.

The Simulator supports scenarios for both bonding and staking, which helps Klimates make a more informed decision when determining whether to buy KLIMA off the market directly versus buying a bond and staking. Users can enter different values such as AKR, initial KLIMA, and participation timeframes to estimate future rewards. The tool includes fields to input values for dollar-cost averaging and profit-taking in order to factor those into decisions as well.

It also provides real-world examples of how rewards translate to equivalent carbon impact on the planet.

With live on-chain data and helpful graphs, the Simulator is a step up from basic spreadsheets. It also offers educational guides that break down the mechanics of staking, bonding, rewards, and treasury dynamics for more informed decision-making.

This community-driven, open-source educational resource supplements KlimaDAO-provided learning materials like the protocol Resources and Docs.


Open-Source and Community-owned

The Klima Playgrounds app references the same on-chain data that feeds the Dune Dashboard used by the KlimaDAO data and metrics team. Unlike Dune, however, Playgrounds opens control of the dashboard to anyone who knows how to code in Python. In this way, Playgrounds empowers Klimates to build and shape the dashboard to reflect the data and metrics that matter most to the community. The Playgrounds team have created custom lectures and demos specifically for the KlimaDAO community. These lectures will teach all interested how to look under the hood and build their own visualizations, making Playgrounds a true community owned app. Stay tuned for lectures in the KlimaDAO Discord!
