Simply displacing traditional finance is not enough. Blockchain has a 10x potential vs traditional finance. Shouldn't we hold the same high standards for blockchain analytics?

Nansen went live in April 2020, and on our first day, we had a paying customer. That first month, we made a few hundred dollars in revenues. One year later, our revenue had gone up by over 1,000x. We’ve also grown from three co-founders to a team of 30 people.
Although we’ve spent a lot time onboarding new team members this year, growing the team has already led to improvements in the product. Since the release of our first version, we have:
Redesigned User Interface — more intuitive navigation, better-looking charts, dark mode by default
Made Queries Faster — we know that speed is critical when it comes to exploring opportunities, and that is why we’ve made our queries faster
Added Smart Alerts — real-time alerts based on your own custom rules, powered by Nansen data
Introduced New Dashboards — Hot Contracts, NFT God Mode, Smart Money, and lots of other dashboards
And of course, the platform is nowhere near finished! We’re continuously working on making all of the above even better, with new releases now being rolled out several times per week.
Since day one, Nansen has been a product for enthusiasts. Our users are pioneers of the future of finance. Smart Money uses Nansen.
This ties back to why Nansen exists in the first place.
We are grateful for the support from our users, contributors, and investors, and even more excited about having you - the pioneer - along for the journey onwards.
Nansen is a blockchain analytics platform that enriches on-chain data with millions of wallet labels. Crypto investors use Nansen to discover opportunities, perform due diligence, and defend their portfolios with real-time alerts.
