## Historic Blockchain Dominance Index (BDI)

Explore the historic Blockchain Dominance Index and how it has changed over time. Want to know how the BDI is calculated?

Checkout Explanation## Significance calculator

Calculate your own significance by adjusting the weight of Pantos assets, as well as ingoing and outgoing transfers.

### Change values to adjust significance result:

#### Asset distribution

#### Ingoing transfers

### Chains ordered by significance

## What is the Blockchain Dominance Index (BDI)?

Pantos' exceptional portability feature paves the way for multichain assets to achieve the distinction of being the pioneering universal denominator assets. This breakthrough lays the foundation for ushering in a novel crypto-economic metric termed the Blockchain Dominance Index. This index will dynamically display the real-time utilization and distribution of Pantos, PANDAS & wrapped assets across various blockchains, thereby quantifying the importance of each blockchain within the PAN ecosystem.

Furthermore, the seamless adoption of PAN by users facilitates its seamless movement across diverse blockchain projects, offering a dependable gauge that captures the public's trust in a particular project's sustainability. This seamless flow of multichain assets sets the stage for establishing a route to predictive analytics in assessing cryptocurrency valuation and comprehending the broader crypto landscape.

### How can the BDI be estimated?

When looking at cross chain transfers or multichain transfers, we have serveral factors, which do play a role for the dominance index. We have to decide which makes a chain more valuable by looking at figures & stats. The two main stats, which are important to us are transfers & token distribution. Each can say a lot about, how often a chain is used or how popular a blockchain is to keep assets on it.

#### Basic parameters

PANSCAN calculates the importance of a chain as follows: Before digging deeper we need to declare some variables and constants, which are used for the calculation:

`assetWeight(aw) = 0.5`

`baseTransferWeight(btw) = 1 - tw = 0.5`

`inTransferWeight(itw) = 0.7`

`outTransferWeight(otw) = 1 - itw = 0.3`

#### Calculation of transfer distribution in %

For the transfer distribution, all ingoing and outgoing transfers are taken into account, the sum of those 2 is then divided by the sum of all in- & outgoing transfers of all Pantos supported chains.

#### Calculation of asset distribution in %

All multichain assets and their distribution on each chain define how important a chain is.This basically means, if there are more assets percentage wise on chain A then on chain B, A will be probably more important than chain B. The average percentage on each chain is taken for further calculation.

#### Calculation

To now get the significance (in %) for each chain, we take as a base the current token distribution and add the weighted transfers from the last 24 hours to it. This basically returns us a pretty good weighted dominance index.
