This was a really interesting opportunity, as it gave me the chance to dig deeper into the world of blockchain and explore how this fascinating technology works in more detail.
The client required two calculators:
Showing the lengths of the activation and exit queues for two Ethereum networks (time and number of validators)
A realtime calculator providing detailed information about the withdrawal queue for Ethereum staking rewards.
Both of these tools needed to communicate with external API services.
The Blockdaemon site itself is built with Webflow, so I initially assessed what the optimal solution would be to integrate a front-end tool with this no-code website builder.
This allows for enhanced, embeddable web tools such as these calculators to be easily inserted into the templates.
Additionally, we required a secondary external server to host the scripts that would perform the API lookup operations.
The functionality for both calculators was embedded within the Webflow template and published once all checks and validation reviews were completed.
