Improve Your Crypto Research - 7 Crypto Research Tools That I Use Regularly
A bear market is always a good time to do research in order to position yourself in the best possible way for the next bull market.
In addition to chart analysis, fundamental analysis in particular should not be neglected for medium and long-term investors, even if many people still laugh at this discipline. You can find a small introduction with practical tips here.
Below I would like to introduce you to several tools that I use regularly to keep track of the market. There is no special sorting.
TVL Rankings via DefiLlama
The TVL (Total Value Locked) is widely used as metric to measure the growth of DeFi as an industry. If the TVL of a particular ecosystem or project is growing, one can assume that liquidity will potentially follow, and that popularity will increase further. On DeFiLlama you can track the TVL of a variety of projects on different chains.
Financial Metrics via Tokenterminal
Token Terminal delivers you financial data from blockchains and dApps, using different evaluations such as total revenue, protocol revenue, price to sales ratio, price to earnings ratio, ... to help you figure out what ecosystem/dApp is actually sustainable and makes sense economically.
Events Calendar via Coindar
Price moves can always be caused by major events, news and announcements; in both directions, of course. So it might make sense to have a place to check for those events. On Coindar you can filter events by coin/token and time frame.
Crypto Github Commits via CryptoMiso
Not sure if the devs of a certain project are still working, at all? If they have a Github there is a good place to monitor the commits of those projects on CryptoMiso. You can check the exact number of commits that have been made by specific crypto projects and how many contributors are working on it.
Market Overview via COIN360
If you didn’t know about it already, COIN360 is a good website to get a fast overview of the markets.
Social Media Sentiment via LunarCrush
LunarCrush offers data regarding social media mentions, engagements and other social media growth statistics of different blockchain projects, or to make an overlay of sentiment KPI/price chart.
On-Chain Data & Intelligence by glassnode
Glassnode gathers data from different blockchains to measure their network activity, insights via financial market indicatiors and more, in order to present this data to you as investor.
