Introduction why Web3:
As our world uses json and more and more a decentral technology: I suggest to think about an amazing huge step into blockchain space. Who already installed truffle drizzle framework and co knows thats a pain in the ass. I just played around with some stats from blockchain json (ethereum api) and Wappler. And it worked. Amazing to make small interfaces or getting Wallet balances, amount of transactions visually with these charts extension.
Maybe simple bug huge
Im just posting this cause I‘m into crypto since some time and interacting with blockchain isnt easy now. I dont want to create smart contracts with wappler. No! But interacting a bit more with Wappler and accessing blockchain via JSON would be huge! Really huge!
Ideas for getting these blockchain ethereum values into wappler could be with simple templates and predefined snippets. also if you want to connect to a blockchain you need like a connector, called HttpProvider which contains simply a URL (infura or native, mainnet etc). A port, Username/Password can also be defined.
Then it could go on as the documentation provides with:
- get block height
- get transaction
- get eth balance
there are now two ways to access ethereum blockchain.
please keep in mind, that ethereum is one of the biggest blockchain with a wide adoption. Google, Microsoft, games, exchanges, social stuff etc Full list Ethereum Alliance Members (Dapps are already out there). I guess the blockchain part shouldnt be missing. Im speaking now only of reading values. (Not CRUD) But in general when having a Smart Contract, also passing values would be possible. So storing would be possible. But as blockchain isnt a database in a classic mind, simple read only stuff would be amazing, to create simple Dapps like: Wallets, Stats or Charting, Filtering, Sorting etc
For surfing on Blockchain Dapps (DecentralApp) you need a Web3 Browser like: Brave with Metamask, Chrome or Firefox with Metamask or on Mobile: „Trust Wallet“, „Cipher Browser“ or „Coinbase Wallet“.
That screenhot was just posted on reddit. I guess it shows the problem with UI and Blockchain.

What do you think guys?
- WTF is Blockchain?
- Good idea
- We don‘t need Web3 with Wappler
