Good morning. I’m Fennec.
I recommend 15 analytical websites to use for crypto currency and blockchain research.
All are free to use without registration. There are three types of data: those that use on-chain data, which is recorded on the blockchain, those that use off-chain data, which is not recorded, and those that are in between.
You can use it to find a new investment or to gauge the best time to buy.
I will provide you with the most frequently updated site in order of frequency of update.
Update frequency: per second
View and search various blockchain data.
Although the types of blockchains handled are limited, the data analysis service is well-developed and convenient for easy data comparison. The fact that Japanese-language support is available is also recommended.
Since there are many explorers that deal with blockchain data for individual stocks, it is useful to have something like this “Blockchair” or “TOKENVIEW” that allows you to view multiple data across the board.
FYI: TOKENVIEW handles a large number of stocks, so it will be useful when Blockchair does not. I recommend using TOKENVIEW as a supplement to Blockchair while using Blockchair as the main service.
The famous Explorer, The Ethereum Blockchain Explorer.
Created in 2015 by Ethereum and its community, the Explorer allows users to search and browse on-chain data from the decentralized smart contract platform Ethereum.
Tokens compliant with ERC-20 standards and NFT data compliant with ERC-721/ERC-1155 can also be viewed.
It can be used for data analysis, and even for non-analytical purposes, it can be used to check the current status of a wallet such as Metamask by looking at the transaction history of Etherscan when there is a problem with a gas blockage.
Once you find an explorer on the web that is dedicated to the crypto currency you hold. You can find it by searching the string “explorer” and the name of the crypto currency or company. There are many types of explorers, but when there is an official release, like XDC Network Explorer for example, I recommend using that.
I think there are many explorers like BlocksScan Explorer that add crypto currency stocks or expand their functionality, so you should try using different ones from time to time~.
In addition to basic functions such as chart display and ranking display, various data analysis can be performed.
It is very convenient to be able to display crypto currencies by category (DeFi, Stablecoin, Exchange Currency, etc.) and very easy to use, as you can easily view the analysis results by simply selecting from the “Chart” and “Screener” tabs.
The “News” list, which can be skipped from the “More” tab, is drawn from a wide range of sources, and the “ASSETS” column displays icons of crypto currencies related to the news, making it easy to find them.
Not only is Messari’s site of excellent quality, but their reliable research is excellent as well.
I especially recommend this site!
A counter that displays the amount of Ethereum that has been Burned.
You can see the annual supply forecast, the amount burned in the past, and the platforms with the highest amount Burned.
In the “project the supply” section, future Ethereum supply can be simulated by manually adjusting three parameters: the amount of issuance by staking, gas prices, and the date of full transition to PoS.
FYI: With Ethereum’s EIP-1559 upgrade activated on August 5, 2021, the fixed network fee per block is now Burn. The amount of Ethereum that has been Burned can also be viewed at Watch The Burn.

The service tracks and analyzes millions of transactions each day in real time, and issues alerts when transaction volume is high.
I recommend following the officially operated Twitter feed.
It displays a wide range of analytical data on bitcoin in a row on the screen.
The site also handles analysis other than on-chain data and is a good fit for long-term investing, as it has a wide range of information, such as graphing search volume on Google Trends and charting the legal treatment of bitcoin in countries around the world.
The site ranks crypto currencies based on the commit history of GitHub repositories.
Crypto currencies with frequent file updates appear at the top of the ranking.
It is interesting to see the past commit (update) history displayed in a chart.
Update frequency: daily
This is an analytical website that utilizes public blockchain data.
User-produced analysis tools are available to the public using Dune’s services for querying, extracting, and visualizing blockchain data.
Tools created by users are treated as open source and can be further forked by other users to create the next tool, so the more tools are created and the more users there are, the more diverse tools are created.
You can browse without registering, but once registered, you will be able to register your favorites and create tools.
It is a database of decentralized apps for more than 15 different platforms, including Ethereum.
You can search over 3500 applications by selecting by platform, category, and status.
A brief description of the application appears in the search results, making it easy to understand what applications are available.
So much fun to watch!
This is a news and media compilation site.
There is also a Twitter-like voting feature to help you keep track of the market’s mood.
I can make a portfolio tracker for free, but it has few features and is not very good.
I hope you will also use COTONOCA, a crypto currency news summary and analysis site I created. The site has a news-related asset display, category search, and asset search function using tickers (for up to about the top 300 stocks by market capitalization). News is automatically updated daily.
For an overview and how to use it, please see the following article.
FYI: One site that uses analysis of social is Bitcoin sentiment, which charts market sentiment based on social networking data. It may be a useful reference for long-term investment buying and selling opportunities.
A community-driven, operational, crypto currency calendar.
It can be used to check a rough schedule or search for past events.
Update frequency: Monthly
This site evaluates the quality and safety of DeFi.
Select a token to see a breakdown of ratings and review dates.
This site provides a ranking of the amount of damage caused by hacking and cracking that has occurred in the past.
When damage occurs or there are related events, they are also covered in news articles.
The style of the news is very poetic, but very informative.
FYI: Although it has stopped updating, Tokens-Economy also has a record of the damage.
CBDC Tracker (open-source project)
Co-developed by the co-founders of the Digital Euro Association (DEA) and members of the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), this open source CBDC tracker was released in June 2020.
“Technology provider” distributed ledger technology name selection and “Digital currency” CBDC project name selection are two features not implemented in the Atlantic Council tracker that would be so useful in the survey.
By moving the “Historic state” to the left or right and specifying the year and month, you can see what it was like at that time.
The January 2021 white paper states that it will continue to be updated with additional features, etc.
CBDC Tracker (Atlantic Council)
The CBDC tracker, released in May 2020, is a collaboration between the Atlantic Council’s GeoEconomic Center and the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University.
The “Race for the future of money” band graph shows at a glance the progress of CBDC development in each country. It is also good to see the numbers by status when filtered by “Country” as G7, G20, and OECD.
There are other CBDC trackers, but are these two the ones that news organizations use for reference?
I have recommended 15 sites for data analysis and a supplemental list of sites.
The frequency of updates decreases in the latter half of the year, but the weight of the updates increases.
I’ve told you quite a few things, but I hope you will touch on a few of them.
Finally, I would like to share with you a July 28, 2021 article by THE BLOCK, a New York-based research firm, titled “The State of the Digital Assets Data and Infrastructure Landscape, 2021” and an image of the list of sites featured in the article.
The letters are tiny, can you see them?
I checked all the sites, including the “Staking” section, but as I expected, many of them were enterprise-oriented, and it would be difficult for an individual to use all of them, as some of them require a fee or registration.
So, please use this as a reference that institutions are using these tools.
If it’s available for personal use, then of course you can use it!
Good tools nurture the ideas of those who use them.
Ideas that only people who use the tools on a regular basis can come up with suddenly appear at a certain time. In addition, thanks to tools, the ability to do something when in trouble can be acquired before you know it.
I decided to do a lot of research for today’s article, so it took me a long time to select the sites and learn how to use them while searching for them. In the midst of all this, various new discoveries were made, perhaps thanks to my familiarity with the usual tools.
Use the unfamiliar tools together in the future.
