Unchained index

Unchained Index allows blazingly fast, perfectly-private access to any account anywhere on the chain.

The Unchained Index.

Benefits of unchaining the index

We’ve written a lot about the Unchained Index elsewhere. We won’t belabour the point, however, we want to point out that the Unchained Index:

  • Allows blazingly fast access to any account anywhere on the chain
  • Allows perfectly-private access to query blockchain data completely locally
  • Naturally shards itself and distributes itself using IPFS and user behaviour
  • Is published periodically to a smart contract and once published cannot be removed from public use
  • Is reproducable directly from immutable data with a well-defined series of operations meaning its as immutable as the original blockchain data
  • Compact
  • Digs deeper into the blockchain than any other source allowing for instantaneous, 18-decimal-place accurate off-chain reconciliation of any account
  • Blazingly fast

Here we present a number of articles we’ve written about TrueBlocks over the years. Read at least a few of these and you will better understand what we’re trying to do.
