(unofficial) polkadot status page

the fact that polkadot does not have a status page is slightly worrying to me. all service providers to have a public communication channel to report on incidents and outages in real time.

status pages seem to do this job quite well in the past and we should have one, too.


the current prototype of dotpong sends a remark transaction to the rococo relay chain and rococo asset-hub about every 60 seconds. it then reports the inclusion time back to the status page via webhook.

this is a very primitive design and not a good benchmark, but i am aiming at quantifying end-user experience - not performance.


karim jedda from parity is currently prototyping in the same direction. hopefully, we can join our efforts and create a proper status page for polkadot.
