Bringing back the ‘Dialed in with Switchboard’ series where we wrap up Switchboard’s endeavours every quarterly!
In 2023 Q1, Switchboard continues to strive for excellence in areas such as the ongoing Switchboard Expansion and growing our developer community!
Our statistics on Solana has improved overall, such as increasing our percentage of transactions to 8–10% of total Solana transactions; and other achievements like doubling our VRF requests count since last quarter.

Switchboard 2023 Q1 Statistics on Solana
Community-led Solana Hackathon
Switchboard kicked off the year with a community initiated hackathon, Solana Sandstorm hosted by LamportDAO and Helius Labs.
Switchboard’s vision is to empower developers from any community and ecosystem to build seamlessly and permissionlessly. Hence, this hackathon allowed us to reach these developers to empower them via a workshop and grant to help them continue build their project.
From this hackathon, we hosted a Switchboard Oracle integration track where the most interesting use case will receive a $1,000 USD grant. At the end of the 2 week event, we received a total of 14 submissions out of 267 and 4 of these projects (including the winner) have continued to build till the time of writing.
More importantly, we managed to highlight to developers the ease of building on Switchboard and helped these developers to build unique use cases such as:
- The first Formula 1 fantasy game using Switchboard’s data feeds to fetch real world events.
- No-loss lottery protocols using randomness to derive a winner out of the participated pool.
The Switchboard Expansion
Apart from the community wins, in this quarter, we’ve expanded to 2 more ecosystems. We’re now on Core DAO mainnet and Starknet goerli-alpha!
Additionally, Switchboard received the #SuiBuilderHero Award where they recognize early contributions to the ecosystem and community.
Lastly, we’ve announced the ideas behind Switchboard v3 where the oracles will be implemented with Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs), improving the security, aligning the incentives and eventually, empower more developers with the products built around the technology of TEEs.

Switchboard continues to expand its oracle infrastructure to empower developers and build a strong, robust developer community to build, educate and share blockchain technology. Thank you for dialing in with Switchboard!
