How do you use Nansen?
Nansen is a pretty simple service to use. After signing up for an account (you can use an email or your wallet to sign up) you'll drop into their dashboard which looks like the below.
You can then click on any of the contracts, tokens, or NFT collection links on this page to get a detailed view of how people are interacting with it. Take the below example from ENS.
As you can see, the data they provide is pretty comprehensive and gives a good historical view of key stats including floor price, transaction volume over different periods, and total supply.
You can also dive into similar depth of data for all of the below by navigating to them in the left hand nav bar.
- Individual wallets (just need the public address)
- DeFi contracts
However, be aware that much of this data is behind a paywall and you'll need to shell out at least $149 / month for access.
Nansen has also extended the service to pull data from various different blockchains. You'll find a full list of the supported chains in a drop down menu in the top left.
Does Nansen have a token?
