This project will monitor blockchain nodes' uptimes and latencies over time.
The Cosmos ecosystem has many blockchains. Many of them don't have an organization hosting reliable blockchain nodes to serve API requests for public use. This leads organizations to either host their own blockchain nodes (an expensive and time-consuming ordeal), or rely on blockchain nodes hosted by the community. Many of the community hosted blockchain nodes suffer from low uptimes, and high latencies as their operators aren't compensated for their work, and therefore lack the motivation and money to provide a high quality service. Using third party hosting solutions such as Figment isn't practical since they only provide API access for a few of the blockchains in the Cosmos ecosystem.
