Hey there, Explorer!

Welcome to this short video introducing our Smart Money Dashboards.

So before we start, What is Smart Money?

Smart money tracks wallets that are very active and prolific. It details what they are holding and where they are moving their capital. In a nut shell it refers to crypto entities that trade or invest in away that is considered experienced, well informed or “in the know”

To learn more about these labels please refer to the article ‘Following the nerds’ found in the video description.

In this video we will introduce the 3 main tabs associated with the Smart Money Dashboard and by the end of the video you will have gained a better understanding of

  • DEX Trades
  • Transactions
  • Token Holdings

So let’s begin, upon logging in to pro.nansen.ai you will be welcomed by the home screen. On the left under the quick access menu we have Smart money. Click here to access the associated dashboards.

The navigation bar has three sections:

  • The DEX Trades focuses on activities happening in decentralized exchanges,
  • Transactions is a space for simply viewing all transactions, regardless of what's happening inDEX or not.
  • Token holdings is for viewing all types of tokens, their holding amounts by various parties.
  • The Segment on the left is a filter we can use to focus on specific wallet labels suited to your need.

For this video we will look at all the Smart money wallet labels available.

DEX Trades

Let’s start with DEX TradesThe first table that you see on this dashboard “Top transactions” are DEX trades made by smart money wallets within the last 24 hours. This details the DEX that was used, the smart wallet involved alongside taker and maker amounts. We can use the Ellipsis on the right to explore further such as wallet pair profiler token overlap and the actual transaction itself.

As a VIP or alpha user you can use the filters to focus on specific areas suited to your use case.

The “token transfers” table is similar to “top transactions”, but records direct transfers that involves at least one “smart money” wallet. The table is naturally sorted to display the latest token transfer in terms of time.

And then we have Top volume DEX markets traded by smart money This table shows types of tokens traded the most on DEX markets by smart money wallets, sorted in descending order by volume in 1 day through to 30 days.

For any of these chart we can change what we are seeing by again using the filters found on each table, the filters are different for each table but in this instance we can manipulate the filters to focus on specific taker or maker token the more than or less than token amount in USD for 1, 7 or 30 days. Have a go and see what results come through!


Under transactions, we have a regularly updated chart viewing smart money transactions within the last 24 hours, and smart money contract interactions within the last 24 hours.

“contract interactions” shows the smart money wallets’ activities with smart contracts on the blockchain, within a given interval. This is naturally sorted to show the most recent interaction at the top.

Once again we can dig a little deeper by using the filters or if something piques your interest you can right click on the wallet label to begin the due diligence process process. In this case we can use wallet profiler to take a look at the individual wallet or use explorer to view the transactions on Etherscan.

Token Holdings

The “token holdings” table gives a detailed view on the volumes of various tokens kept by smart money contracts, ranked by net change in 1 day. It also shows the number of smart wallet addresses holding the token, giving users a rough sense of token concentration and popularity.

As we move down we have two donut charts illustrating the balance distribution amongst wallets, and also the balance distribution amongst tokens.

These charts illustrates the breakdown of smart monies “net worth” in USD as well as the breakdown by token types with regard to value in USD.

The two lower tables are rankings by total balance value by investment funds and smart money wallets, respectively.

Under smart money Stablecoins versus all coins, we can see the percentage of Stablecoins that smart money wallets are holding in their portfolio over time. On the right, we can view the percentage of Stablecoins that smart money wallets are holding right now.

And finally, at the bottom of our smart money dashboard, we show the number of labeled addresses that account for the smart money segment - which is 5.2k at the moment. We also have a pie chart that breaks down the specific smart money labels that make up this aggregated segment.

So there we have it, we have covered the Smart money dashboards focusing on the individual tabs

  • DEX Trades
  • Transactions
  • Token Holdings
