CircuitBreakers have recently ignited a wave of interest across the security ecosystem, particularly in the realm of Decentralized Finance (DeFi). These mechanisms act as a safety net, halting transactions when certain conditions are met to prevent catastrophic events like hacks. However, for these CircuitBreakers to be effectively managed and implemented, protocols require a visual interface. This is where our project comes in. We aim to provide a comprehensive, user-friendly dashboard that allows protocols to monitor, manage, and customize their CircuitBreakers.
What it does
Our project is a visual UI dashboard designed to interact with CircuitBreakers. It provides real-time data visualization, customizable settings, and performance metrics, enabling protocols to have a granular control over their CircuitBreakers. This dashboard serves as a one-stop solution for all your CircuitBreaker management needs.
How we built it
We utilized a range of technologies to bring this project to life. The frontend was developed using Vite, while wagmi was employed for seamless integration with the on-chain CircuitBreaker contract. For data visualization, we used recharts, and Tailwind took care of the CSS styling.
Challenges we ran into
One of the most challenging aspects was bridging the data from the on-chain CircuitBreaker to our off-chain dashboard. This was particularly difficult for historical data and tracking changes in Total Value Locked (TVL) over time. Due to the time constraints of the hackathon, we had to resort to mocking some of the data as it was not feasible to pull everything off in the limited time available.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are immensely proud to have created the very first UI interface for managing and interacting with CircuitBreakers. This is a significant milestone as it democratizes the management of CircuitBreakers, making it accessible even for those who are not tech-savvy.
What we learned
This project was a learning curve in understanding the complexities of bridging on-chain and off-chain data. We realized that it's particularly challenging to handle data that changes over time, as such data cannot be simply retrieved with a single function call.
What's next for Circuit Breaker UI
While we don't have concrete plans as of now, we are excited about the potential of integrating the CircuitBreaker UI into a comprehensive tool for DeFi protocols. This would allow them to easily configure and manage their CircuitBreakers, thereby enhancing the security and efficiency of the DeFi space.
