This work tries to address the following issues:
- Overview of blockchain history.
Any successful project has to be able to tell its history in the most detailed way for the newcomers that did not live the events that happened in the past. Therefore, scanning the whole blockchain looking for leakages and providing some educational material with codes, some stats and insights is crucial not only for the new members but actually for anyone who wants to revisit the history.
- Solid information about inflation.
This project is highly focused on building the necessary tools in Python to prove that there is no money leakage (inflation) occurring or that has occurred. Therefore, the community is welcome to use the tools provided here and also make improvement suggestions on how to answer this question in the most decisive way.
- Educational material.
This work also intends to convey the message that Monero is as safe or more as Bitcoin (cryptographically speaking). Therefore some educational material is provided for the layman and for someone looking to understand the code. Convincing someone about something may require different levels of explanations. This work address this issue.
- Provide more transparency and ease the fear of users and investors.
Nobody heavily invests into something that they do not understand. This work provides more transparency and education on how the blockchain works with the focus on the inflation issue. Therefore, users would feel safer by investing and using Monero.
- Provide some implementations of the C++ code in Python.
This work also intends to provide more tools in Python so users can have more independence from the C++ code in verifying the blockchain, which the great majority of people heavily relies on. If useful functions are implemented here, it could also help, in the future, other people to make different implementations of wallets and nodes in Python for example.
