Hey there Explorer, my name is Max and in this video we will provide a high level tour of Nansen showing you how to get started.

During this short video we will cover the following elements:

  • Simple Navigation
  • The Nansen way
  • Other resources

Simple Navigation

Lets start with Simple Navigation.

Upon logging into pro.Nansen.ai you be will welcomed by the Nansen homepage and various dashboards.

On the left, we list the most popular quick access dashboards, this includes:

Hot contracts - where you will find the hottest Contracts on the Ethereum network.

Smart Money - which tracks what Smart money is holding and where they are moving their capital.

Token God Mode - Here you can gain a macro perspective on your token of choice.

Wallet Profiler - which allows you to input any wallet address to see any movements the wallet is making.

And finally… NFT paradise - Start here if you want a quick glance into what the NFT markets are doing in real time.

As stated before these are simply quick access options to our more popular dashboards. If you want to dig a little deeper you can use the area below this menu to explore other areas. As you can see they are broken down into key areas of exploration. We will cover these in later videos.

In the tool bar that runs across the top we can see Smart alerts, Watchlist, additional resources and an area where you can manage your profile.

Smart Alerts - Smart Alerts allow you to create Smart Alerts for various events beyond a simple price alert.

Watch list - here you can add wallets, token or NFT to your personalised watchlist.

Which leads me to the final points on navigation. If you are ever unsure of what a particular dashboard is about, click on the tooltips for a brief explanation and if you are ever unsure on what the next stage of the process may be, you can right click on most elements to be directed to the next step. Consider this a top tip!

The Nansen Way!

At Nansen we have a specific way of doing things and we call this the 4 D’s of Nansen. This is not to be confused with the 5 D’s of Dodgeball.

Simply put:

  • Discovery - Discover a hot Token, wallet, NFT or Yield. If this interests you, now is the time to perform due diligence.
  • Due Diligence - Is where we recommend exploring further your newly found discovery. Explore different dashboards to enable you to build up an informed picture of whether to invest.
  • Decision/Action - Now that you have gathered the necessary information Are you going to invest? Have you found the answers to the questions that you have raised during the due diligence process?
  • Defence - now you have invested, how are you going to protect your investment and defend your position.
