Everything mankind has achieved was through building. Cities. Roads. Hospitals. Engines. Power plants. Industries. Institutions. The internet. Financial systems enabling them to operate.
Everything mankind is yet to achieve will be through building. New energy. AI. Neural interfaces. Biotech. Starships. A better environment. A better world. Connected by a layer of trust, exchanging value through a global financial system, powered by applications operating at internet-scale.
With the essential components in place, it’s time for the Elrond ecosystem to scale. It’s time for the creators to pick up our tools and use them to shape the future of finance, governance, industry, public administration, commerce. It’s time to build.
Building something truly useful is a journey. It may start with small steps at first. But once it starts, it can lead to many surprising and unexpected places.
At Elrond, builders are heroes. They push things forward. It’s why the next period will kickstart a new building phase within the Elrond ecosystem.
Several hardworking teams have already launched projects using the Elrond tech. Today we highlight three of them.
Elrond Scan - an Elrond blockchain explorer
The project is owned by Staking Agency and is developed by a team led by none other than “DrDelphi” himself. The author of the most utilized Elrond telegram bots has now expanded his on-chain data extraction and analysis capabilities to display everything in web form.
The Elrond Scan explorer is meant to be complementary to the Elrond blockchain explorer, bringing additional features such as a user dashboard that shows an overview of multiple wallets and triggers alerts for them. You can for example receive an email or SMS (soon) when you send a transaction or receive a token.
There are also cool features such as herotags, labeling addresses, “scam” labels for tokens, and our favorite, unwrapping transaction data in ASCII or Binary, thus making smart contract calls easier to read.
The product was officially launched on the day the Elrond mainnet turned 1 and is available here: https://www.elrondscan.com/
Aerovek - Aviation Marketplace
With a mission to make air travel as easy as Uber, the Aerovek team is creating a one-stop web portal for aviation pilots, mechanics, and enthusiast to charter flights, market their services, and socialize, all in one place.
The platform’s economy is centered around the $AERO ESDT token and will integrate some of Elrond's unique features, such as Smart Accounts for storing pilot certificate data or “callsigns”, which are the aviation industry equivalent of nicknames and essentially work in a similar way with @herotags.
The project is ramping up and will be one to watch as it is pioneering a unique connection between flying and blockchain technology.

Elrond Tax - automated on-chain revenue calculator
The tool is developed by Trust Staking, one of the staking providers that have attracted the most delegators in their staking pool. It offers an automated way for any wallet owner to track both the incoming and outgoing transactions, as well as the delegation and resulting rewards.
Elrond Tax has neat features such as multiple fiat denominations, as well as the EGLD spot price history, so you can easily determine the evolution of your portfolio and calculate expenses and income at the correct rate at various points in time.
New features are expected to be live over time, as the team keeps baking utility into their tool.
