New

We are excited to announce the support of Solana on the Rated API, Explorer, and documentation hub. This update allows developers to access curated Solana data, develop reporting applications, create custom dashboards, and integrate a real-time, outside-in view into their monitoring stack.


  • Validators: Monitor performance, benchmark against peers, and gain an external view on their infrastructure. View all validator endpoints and validator views on Explorer.

  • Delegators: Make informed delegation decisions, review performance, manage rewards, and view commission rates.View all delegator endpoints and delegator views on Explorer.

  • Pools & Active Set Managers: Evaluate validator performance for onboarding, SLAs, and off-boarding. View pool view on Explorer.

  • Network Researchers: Monitor network health and gain insights for research and development. View all network endpoints and network views on Explorer.

Check out Solana on the Explorer and view our docs to help navigate through the different views. 

Get started with the Rated API for Solana at rated.network/apis and explore our comprehensive API documentation hub for detailed guidance.

New

Rated API v1 is now available in public beta! After iterating on months of valuable feedback from our users, we have upgraded from v0 to bring you a more intuitive API design.

API v1 comes on Ethereum first. In the coming weeks, we'll enhance the Ethereum suite to match the full capabilities of v0 on v1. We’ll also be working on bringing Polygon & upcoming network APIs to v1.

Enhanced User Experience

We've redesigned our API from the ground up, focusing on simplicity and usability. No more heavy endpoints that are difficult to parse. The new endpoints are categorized as:

  • Performance APIs: Accurately track, improve and benchmark your current and historical validator fleet performance.

  • Rewards APIs: Deploy precise accounting in a few simple calls, with granular tracking of validator rewards earned.

  • Metadata APIs: Help users make informed decisions around staking with access to rich metadata about an entity's useful life.

Improved Pagination

Navigating through data is now more efficient. We’ve upgraded to a limit-based pagination and introduced sorting to ensure that you can access large datasets quicker and with less hassle. 

Performance Enhancements

Smaller payloads means faster response times and reduced latency so that your applications can operate more efficiently and reliably.

Disclaimer
As we step into the public beta phase, anticipate encountering bugs and areas in need of UX refinement. This period is crucial for us to enhance feature stability, integrate user feedback, and ensure a seamless experience moving forward. Your understanding and contributions are invaluable!

We will also be gradually releasing guides and documentation on v1 as we complete the full rollout in Q2 2024. Rest assured that we will be maintaining both v0 and v1, until we sunset v0 in early Q3 2024.

April 3rd 2024

New

Organizations within the Build and Growth tiers can now create and utilize private pre-materialized sets. This feature enables the creation of custom sets of validators, each marked with a unique tag for private use. It is aimed at enhancing capabilities in performance benchmarking, rewards accounting, and validator set management.

Quickstart

  • Tags: Validators within a set are tagged with identifiers unique to your organization, allowing for private viewing of performance and rewards metrics. This facilitates efficient analysis, A/B testing of node setups, and confidential grouping of validators for specific customers.

  • Easy API Integration:

Limits

  •  Build tier users can create up to 4 tags

  • Growth tier users can create up to 20 tags

New

A new page, Native Restaking, on the Rated Explorer is now available, dedicated to detailed restaking stats. This enhancement provides users with access to comprehensive metrics surrounding the Ethereum native restaking ecosystem. Key metrics featured include:

  • Total amount of ETH natively restaked

  • Percentage of the validator fleet natively restaked at the operator level and their market share

  • RAVER of validators at an operator level engaged in native restaking

To further aid in the visibility and understanding of native restaking participation, a restaking icon has been introduced in the operators list view. This icon serves as a quick visual indicator of which operators are actively participating in native restaking.

As the restaking ecosystem continues to evolve and mature, we are committed to regularly updating and enriching this data.

March 14th 2024

Fixed

We've addressed an issue affecting the blocks endpoint, which resulted in the overstated reporting of execution layer rewards for a subset of blocks proposed via mev-boost.

This discrepancy was identified in cases where proposers were partially compensated by builders through internal transactions, with failed payments not being excluded from the calculations.

To rectify this, we've implemented a filter to exclude these failed transaction traces, and performed a comprehensive refresh of the blocks endpoint data. The columns updated include baseline_mev, execution_rewards, missed_execution_rewards, total_rewards, and total_rewards_missed.

Impacted endpoints 👇

  • /v0/eth/blocks

  • /v0/eth/blocks/{consensus_slot}

This fix was applied retroactively (on 13th March 2024 at 8:43PM UTC) and impacts less than 0.5% of all blocks since the merge.

March 13th 2024

New

In preparation for the Dencun Upgrade on Ethereum slated for 13th March, we are introducing the following changes to the API:

  • We’re tracking the count of type 3 transactions (0x03; blob transactions) and the corresponding fees related to these transactions in the blocks endpoint. Impacted endpoints:

    • /v0/eth/blocks

    • /v0/eth/blocks/{consensus_slot}

  • Accordingly, the validator rewards from these transactions are tracked in all our rewards endpoints which ensures we are accounting for all rewards that validators receive. Impacted endpoints:

    • /v0/eth/validators/{validator_index_or_pubkey}/effectiveness

    • /v0/eth/validators/effectiveness

    • /v0/eth/validators/{validator_index_or_pubkey}/apr

    • /v0/eth/operators/{operator_id}/effectiveness

    • /v0/eth/operators/{operator_id}/apr

    • /v0/eth/network/overview

March 12th 2024

Changed

We've revamped the Rated Explorer, enhancing design and functionality for a better user experience. Key updates include a cleaner interface for efficient data access, intuitive navigation across networks, and improved sorting. The search feature is also upgraded for easier discovery of pool operators, addresses, or indices.

The explorer also got its own dedicated namespace in 👉 explorer.rated.network

Following the launch, navigating to rated.network will direct users to Rated's homepage. Access to all explorer pages will require visiting explorer.rated.network (bookmark for ease of access!).

March 4th 2024

New

We've launched a Python SDK for the Rated APIs to make integrating with our data easier and faster. The SDK support comes on Ethereum first with plans to add other networks in the coming weeks.

Important links 👇

The Rated API Python SDK comes with examples for straightforward tasks, including retrieving operator summaries, APR, effectiveness, and network statistics. 


We will be adding more complex scenarios such as performance benchmarking, rewards accounting, incident troubleshooting amongst others soon™.

February 21st 2024

Changed

We've adjusted the Compute Unit (CU) formula to better reflect the processing demands on Rated for generating the data. 

What’s changed?

Initially, a constant weight of 32 was applied as a denominator to the content length, resulting in the formula:

Compute Units =  (Content Length Bytes/32) + (Item Count x Business Value)

We've modified this approach to incorporate variable weights, which better account for the processing costs associated with producing this data. The new formula is:

Compute Units =  (Content Length Bytes/Weight) + (Item Count x Business Value)

Downstream impact on a per endpoint basis

This update changes the overall CU requirement to query certain endpoints that the Rated API supports, and are effective as of today. The updated weights, on a per endpoint basis, are available here.
