At Nansen, your success is what drives us. We are dedicated to delivering data insights that are not only timely, accurate, and actionable, but also readily accessible. 

Our team has been working hard over the past few months to develop these exciting updates. Are you ready to explore what's new? Let's dive in.

Nansen 2 

Crypto investors often struggle with multiple tools to surface alpha. Nansen 2 offers a 100x improvement in the speed of our product, innovative new features such as Signals and Smart Segments, and the power to track everything onchain in one place.

Effortless Speed

Search anything on Nansen by pressing CMD+K or simply by asking a question. Get in-depth metrics about any token, NFT, wallet, or entity in a single click. 

Experience seamless navigation across dashboards, now with load speeds 100x faster for your workflow. 

Surfacing The Signals

Signals showcase unique onchain activity spikes directly on your homepage as they occur. It offers a new way to explore unusual market movements, discover opportunities, or reduce your risks.

You can choose from 9 different Signal types using the filter to focus on the ones you prefer.

  • CEX Token Flow
  • Smart Money Token Flow
  • Smart Money NFT Mint Presence
  • Smart Money NFT Mint
  • NFT Volume
  • NFT Mint Volume
  • DEX Token Flow
  • Fresh Wallets Flow
  • Top Balances Change

During our Nansen 2 launch live stream, we utilized our Signals feature to discover OLAS trading at $2.39. At the time of this writing, OLAS peaked at $8.47, a 3.3x increase in just a couple of weeks.

Do note that Signals can indicate potential market trends but should not be the sole basis for trading decisions as they are not guaranteed predictors of price action.

Use Smart Segments to Curate Your “Alpha” Wallets

Smart Segments is a powerful feature that enables you to set conditions and group wallets to highlight their asset holdings and onchain movements, so you can surface and track crypto/NFT wallets that matter to you.

For example, Nelson has created a Smart Segment of ‘UNIBOT <> PEPE SM’ on 2 conditions: 

  • Holds > 1,000 UNIBOT
  • Holds > 1,000,000 PEPE 

There are 17 wallets that match the criteria, and they are dynamic. This means if their holdings change, the list of wallets will update accordingly.

Once the Smart Segment is created, you can use it as a filter in dashboard tables. For instance, use the 'Name by Smart Segment' filter in the 'Balances' table in Token God Mode.

Select the Smart Segment that you've created and hit "save". 

The table will now display only the information from your selected Smart Segment in Token God Mode to narrow down your focus. 

On your Smart Segments page, you can also visit the Profiler on the right to view an aggregate view of the wallets. 

Here, you'll find comprehensive details of the Smart Segment's total holdings, associated counterparties, and their transactions.

Supercharged Features You Love

Profiler and Token God Mode, two favorites among our users, have leveled up in Nansen 2. Exploring data insights on any address, entity, or token has become simpler and more powerful. 


Nansen Profiler provides almost everything you need to know about a wallet or entity, and now also shows a collective view of Smart Segments you've created or various ‘Alpha’ labels curated by our team.

Just press 'CMD+K' or click on 'Nansen Profiler' under Profiler in the left navigation menu.

It works seamlessly across all integrated EVM chains, and you can also select individual chains to analyze further.

For wallet or entity analysis, we're the only one offering a detailed historical portfolio breakdown by tokens, so you can easily track the changing values of various tokens in the portfolio over time.

You can also explore Counterparties, and track Transactions using a new activity heatmap. Click on a day or filter by a specific time period to dig deeper.

Token God Mode

Token God Mode offers an in-depth analysis of the market players involved with the token you're investigating. For insights on these specific aspects, Token God Mode is your go-to resource:

  • Who are the Smart Money holding this token?
  • Who has recently bought or sold this token?
  • What is the distribution of this token? 
  • What percentage of the token is in the staking pool? 
  • What is the exchange flow of this token? 

Selecting the chain of the token you are analyzing is just one-click away, and you have the flexibility to switch between various chains directly from the token's dashboard.

A very useful new table we’ve introduced is ‘Who Bought?’ As the name suggests, this allows you to view the top buyers and sellers of the token you're analyzing, along with the amount they've traded in the last 24 hours or the past week. Toggle to show if there are any Smart Money trades.

In the 'Balances' table, we've introduced an option that allows you to view aggregated data grouped under the same entity, in addition to individual addresses.

Your Nansen, Your Rules

Now you can easily create and manage your own dashboard on Nansen by saving tables and charts that you’d like to check frequently. 

You can also use filters to only see the data or labels you're most interested in. When you pin a table, your filters are saved too. You can change these filters anytime from 'My Dashboard'.

More than just 'My Dashboard', explore other customizable features like Custom Labels, Watchlists, and Smart Alerts for an enhanced experience and streamlined workflow.
