Non-fungible Tokens or NFTs are for blockchain solutions to go mainstream in the long run. With NFTs coming to the world of games, art, entertainment, collectibles, real estate, and many more areas, the crypto space has found a way to reach the average person. (in the long run)

My name is Leo; I have strong computer science and entrepreneurial background. I have been in the crypto space since 2017 and since 2021 full-time. I love doing my daily deep dives and learning and sharing my insights with you. At the moment, NFTs are my rabbit hole.

NFTs are also mentioned a lot because simple jpegs were sold for millions of dollars, and more and more people join good, innovative projects early or make money by flipping NFTs.

Do not forget it's not that easy. NFT traders and investors who make $$$ constantly are no noobs; they usually invest a lot of time to make those profits. Besides diving deep into social media platforms like Twitter, Youtube, or various Discords, many are also not doing their research without support; they usually use different tools to find the next hot project.

In this article, we give an overview of the most common tools and some not-so-known gems.

Let's dive in.

The tool's functionality is excellent, and you could say it is the industry standard of analytical tools for NFT and DeFI.

One of the best features if you want to dive into the NFT space is the NFT wallet leaderboard, where you can see and analyze what the smart money is doing. Just try it and go down the rabbit hole.

Nansen is tracking over 90 million wallets and supports Ethereum, Celo, BSC, Arbitrum, Fantom, Polygon, Ronin, Avax, and Optimism and is backed by some of the big boys crypto investment companies like a16z or coinbase ventures.

Recently, Nansen has designed several indexes to track the market activity for non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on the Ethereum blockchain.

You can build very complex queries; this example is an NFT Floor Tracker over time.

Floor Tracker on Dune

Dune Analytics has an amazing, large developer community. Keep up the great work, guys.

Moby

  • ranking system for markets and mints
  • fastest real-time NFT statistics and feeds
  • some features are free some are paid
  • paid access to statistics and alerts
  • effective tracking tool
  • Notifications

  • user friendly

Moby’s ranking system helps find top smart contracts and choose the right one. You can filter for market, mint, and period.

In the pro version (0.1 ETH for 6 month), you access the real-time insights platform, popular mint alerts, historical collection data, and live graphs.

Moby has a very clean and easy-to-use user interface.

Icy Tools

  • wallet analysis
  • breakdowns on projects, traits, and rarities
  • beginner-friendly discovery
  • $62 to $75 per month
  • Lifetime access NFT is available

Icy Tools also shows you the trending collections and real-time floors. You will see the floor price, volume, and average sales price. Definitely a good tool for beginners if you start your discovery. The tool is very straightforward and great for a quick market survey.

Starting from $62 per month, you can use all features. With the premium subscription, you can access detailed project pages for every NFT collection. You also will get a breakdown based on rarities and attributes.

You can also buy a lifetime access member and access to the ICY Founders clubs. 1700 membership cards are available, most of them already sold.

Another feature of Icy Tools is that they calculate an estimated value of all your NFTs based on the traits and current floor price.

Rarity Tools

Rarity Score - Bored Ape YC - Rarity.tools
  • rarity score to each listed NFT
  • soft after rarity score
  • shows upcoming Mints
  • very user friendly
  • new collections take some time (weeks) to appear
  • not so useful for new projects
  • sort by average price, volume, and detailed attributes
  • helps to find lucrative NFTs
  • Free to use
  • Brands and creators can list NFT projects for a 2 ETH listing fee

Rarity tools are an easy-to-use NFT tool that gives you a unique calculated rarity score to each listed NFT. It can take a while till new collections are listed. Sometimes, it can take weeks. This is not great if you want to fast flip the NFTs you bought. There are better tools for analyzing your NFTs if you're buying and selling in the early life cycle of a new collection.

You can use Rarity Tools for free, and if you want to list your project, you can do so for a listing fee of 2 ETH.

They also have a mint calendar to see NFT projects launching soon.

Each collection listed can be filtered by traits, trait count, rarity score, and listing type, which means if the NFT is listed with a fixed price or in the auction mode. Pretty cool tool.

Trait Sniper

  • easy, very well sorted interface
  • great features for sniping mispriced NFTs
  • Metadata sniffing tool
  • rarity ranking (fast calculated)
  • great discord community
  • many features are available for free

Trait Sniper does not have many features, but they do great what they do. It's excellent for analyzing ongoing and upcoming projects and finding potentially mispriced NFTs based on their rarity score.

When a new project gets revealed, Trait Sniper analyzes the rarity score. All this is happening within under two minutes with very high accuracy.

The Discord community is very active and is a great way to learn more about NFTs and sniping.

NFT Bank

Etherscan

  • mint directly from a projects contract (verify contract)
  • many of the tools the Etherscan API
  • token metadata
  • check any wallet, transaction, token, or smart contract
  • free to use.

To ensure that you are minting from the right contract, many NFT traders prefer to mint directly on Etherscan. Many of the tools mentioned above use the Etherscan API to get helpful information and metadata about an NFT project and provide more meaningful insights into a project.

Etherscan does not have the most appealing user interface but is very useful because it gives you real-time on-chain information.

Token trackers like Etherscan make reading smart contracts of ERC-721 Tokens. This is necessary if you want to look under the hood and check a few essential parameters about a project before you go into it.

If you are getting more serious with Cryptos and NFTs, we recommend using Etherscan and other Blockchain explorers.

Our Verdict

Investing in or flipping NFTs is very time-consuming and almost impossible without spending hours on social media platforms and using some of the mentioned tools to do your research. There is no straightforward process to do all this; you will need to find your own.

Depending on if you want to buy and long-term hold your NFTs or buy and sell them as soon as possible, there are different options and Analysis Tools that will fit your needs.

Our favorite tool is Nansen, it does not come cheap, but if you are serious about investing in the space and using it extensively, the cost should pay back quickly.

For flipping, we like Traitsniper already with the free version; you can do a lot.

I hope this guide was practical and helped to pick the right tool.
