Scheduled to go live in Q1 2022, the Solana dashboards on Nansen should give users the option to carefully explore some of the best-performing decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols, Smart Money movements, NFT launches on Solana, and “gain insights into the Solana blockchain ecosystem as a whole,” according to a release shared with Crowdfund Insider.
More than 30 different protocols have been introduced on Solana, including major DeFi apps and NFT marketplaces, and the total value locked or TVL on the network has now exceeded $13.4 Billion this month.
DeFi initiatives such as Raydium, an automated market maker (AMM) and liquidity provider built on the Solana blockchain for the Serum decentralized exchange (DEX) “reached $1.9 Billion in TVL and growing, while Solana-based NFT collections, such as Solana Monkey Business, Degenerate Ape Academy, and Aurory have been tremendously welcomed by the crypto community, leading cryptocurrency exchange FTX to launch a marketplace for Solana-based NFTs.”
The announcement also mentioned that Nansen’s blockchain analytics platform “enriches on-chain data with over 100 Million wallet labels across Ethereum, Polygon, Fantom and Binance Smart Chain, to provide traders, hedge funds, institutional investors, and VCs with actionable insights into the crypto markets.”
