Watchtower.Tools: On-the-Go Cardano Node Monitoring

Developing Watchtower Tools

Watchtower.Tools is on its way to revolutionizing the monitoring experience for Cardano Stake Pool Operators (SPOs), particularly those who operate their nodes independently. Our team is diligently developing a specialized toolset that promises to enhance reliability and effectiveness in node monitoring. We are proud to present our innovative project in Project Catalyst Fund11 and warmly invite your support through voting as we turn this vision into reality!

  5. Open Source Commitment: Our solution is open source and will remain so, fostering transparency and community collaboration.

Our Goals

Our journey began with a clear vision: to enhance the security and reliability of the Cardano network by providing SPOs with an easy-to-use monitoring toolset. We’re in the active development phase, aiming to finalize all components and deliver a versatile mobile app within 4 to 6 months. Our solution, built on the robust Prometheus server and developed using Flutter, will be available on iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, and Linux.
