Detailed plan (not required) – Fill in here any additional details:
ada-data.eu is a data-driven Cardano focused service platform mainly for newbies, delegators, sympathizers, and stake pool operators. Motivation: As a small stake pool operator, I notice daily via social media / reddit and the Cardano forum how people new to Cardano are simply overwhelmed by all the technical terms and guides related to Cardano:
How do I create a Cardano wallet?
What is staking?
Which pool should I choose?
When do I get my rewards and how much are they?
What is … ???
Many stake pool operators and other helpful community members respond to all these questions very competently and courteously.
As a developer and administrator, I love to automate things. In addition, I have been dealing with data for a long time and both things go very well together: data-driven automation / decision-making!
The following services are currently being developed or are being planned:
NLP-driven stake pool selection:
Natural language processing driven selection of a pool will provide you with a guided process (multiple questions) to find the pool(s) that best fit(s) you based on your answers to these questions.
The selection becomes considerably simpler, more precise and personalized with each answered question.
Cardano Delegator Notification Service (CDNS) WebApp/API asks for tracking pool changes like saturation, retirement, fee changes, etc.
CDNS-API sends an email to the delegators, when one of the attributes(saturation, retirement, fee changes) changes
Delegators enter an email address to receive notifications over WebApp, Daedalus, Yoroi, other apps -> API will be provided for integration. Daedalus is open to integration into the application. Here is my feature request: https://github.com/input-output-hk/daedalus/issues/2488
WISE Ada Lovelace Bot:
aka “Ada bot” will answer your question about the Cardano ecosystem
Data platform for statistical analysis of Cardano data
Built-in custom reporting for own reports -> with dashboards, embedding and sharing
Design custom charts with drag and drop actions/controls
We want to provide an API for all our services and data
You will be able to integrate our services to your applications
Other ideas and services will follow. I am ao open for any suggestions!
Q1 – Founding (done):
Listen to community problems
Forming first prototypes and website
Q2 – Infrastructure/Beta Services (in progress):

Budget planning for next 6 months (approximately):
Website/domain: 5$/month= 30$ for 6 months
Data server: 150$/month = 900$ (https://www.ionos.de/server-configurator?__sendingdata=1&cart.action=add-bundle&cart.bundle=tariff-bmc-xl-64-nvme-bundle&packageselection=server%2Fintel-server)
Developer(me): 120 days * 4 hours * 80$/hour = 38.400$
