There are hundreds of new projects coming out on the market every day and thousands of legit projects already exist. But most people only want to focus on a few projects at a time.

However, it is time-consuming to jump from one project or address to another and you may miss important alpha info. launched the watchlist feature, which helps you:

  • Manage and track collections that you plan to buy, are interested in, or already own;
  • Follow and track addresses (e.g. smart money & whales);
  • Follow and track NFTs;
  • Discover other people's watchlists.

Let's dive in!

Build Your Collection Dashboard

Imagine that you have 5 potential collections in your mind and wonder which one to buy. With our watchlist, you will be able to add all these collections to a dashboard. There are some key metrics displayed for each collection added to the dashboard, including market cap & volume, floor price trend, whale activities, blue-chip holder activities, etc. By comparing each collection's key metrics, you will get insights into the collection with the highest trading volume, the collection with an uptrend floor price, the collection with the most long-term holders, and more.

If you already bought NFTs in some collections, you can also add them to your dashboard. Besides key metrics, tracking whale and blue-chip holder activities for each collection will help you find buy or sell signals faster. The activity section not only includes on-chain activities (e.g. sell, buy, mint, transfer, etc.) but also Mirror content posted by whales and blue-chip holders. Let's say you find a lot of whales are selling NFTs of a collection you are in. This may be a good time to consider selling yours as well.

Follow Smart Money

Tracking smart money activities is also a good way to find alpha. Our watchlist enables you to manage and track multiple addresses in one place.

Let's take nftpres.eth as an example, imagine you added this address to your watchlist and you found that the person bulk purchased a ton of Moonrunners today and even during the past 2 days. Given that you have followed and trusted this person for a few months, you should probably pay more attention to this collection. If you are still unsure whether it is a good time to ape in, you can add Moonrunners to your watchlist and wait for buy signals. For example, if you find a few whales and blue chip holders are selling Moonrunners NFTs, it is probably not a good time to buy at that moment.

Another trick to finding alpha is to follow other people's watchlists. If you find a collection that is added to a lot of watchlists, then it probably means this collection has the potential to grow. Or an even smarter way is to follow the watchlist of smart money. The collections they are following are more likely to become alpha.

Create Your NFT Dashboard's watchlist feature also enables you to track NFTs in one place. If you have preferences for NFTs (e.g. rarity score, style), you can add them to your watchlist and wait for a lower price to buy. Watchlist - Manage and Track NFTs Watchlist - Manage and Track NFTs
