Some more contributions by our community
From one of our community members. Thanks Leo! For the fellow newbies, I took notes when starting this journey. I wrote a couple of posts I hope are helpful if you are setting up your own node with TrueBlocks. Please note I focus on doing analytics. Storing and accessing the data are the most important factors for me. Thanks to everybody for the patience and helping me with all the issues!

Better Token Accounting

Information about how we account for tokens
Eth accounting is identical Token accounting is improved in these ways: Intra block token accounting Account for every Transfer event If a balance is incorrect, do one of three things: If the transaction contains a “large” input, and the event says something transferred, but the balances don’t change, lable probably-spam and add a field called removal of phony transfer in If the function is one of a very small number of common mint functions, assign to knownMint field If the function is one of a very small number of common burn methods, assign to a knownBurn field If the balance goes up - label the transation as implied-mint and add to a feild called impliedMint If the balance goes down - label the reconciliation as impied-burn and add to a field called impliedBurn Bugs fixed: In previous code, if a token transacted multple times in a single block the entire net transfer was assigned to the first transfer.
