Feature upgrade: Crypto Analysis Tools

1 Apr, 2020 · 4 min read

CoinTracking is pleased to announce the debut of yet another free crypto analysis tools extension that will help you dive even deeper when you’re doing cryptocurrency research. We’ve partnered with blockchain analysis firm IntoTheBlock to make the new widgets available for all customers with new crypto analysis tools.

Since the widgets are built into the CoinTracking interface, you don’t even have to do anything special to view them. Just log in, pull up our Coin Trends page and click the Analysis link on the right:

Click the Analysis link and scroll down to see a brand new set of research widgets.

These are the new widgets:

IntoTheBlock now lets CoinTracking users dig deeper when they do coin research.

The charts let you see a number of important statistics and crypto analysis tools related to whatever coin that you’re researching.

For example, you can:

  1. see whether or not a cryptocurrency’s value is concentrated in the hands of a few wealthy “whale” investors
  2. find out if the coin’s holders are making or losing money
  3. judge if investors are using a coin for day trading or as a store of value

Use cases

These built-in charts extensions will give you the data you need to identify pump-and-dumps and other similar scams when analyzing altcoins. You can also use them to determine whether or not it’s time to buy or sell when trading.

How to get even more coin stats

Thirsty for more stats? Just click the Dive Deeper button for more. That’ll take you to IntoTheBlock’s free trial page. Since you don’t have to give out your credit card information to activate the free trial, there’s absolutely no commitment required.

All you have to do is create an account to begin the trial, and you’re in– and if you’re a paid CoinTracking subscriber, you get a 90-day trial instead of the standard seven-day trial.

Crypto Analysis Tools: Financial Exploring the Deep Dive menu

IntoTheBlock’s Deep Dive menu offers some impressive tools that support both quantitative (general) and technical (specific) analysis strategies. Let’s take a look at some of the most interesting charts that ITB has to offer.

Crypto Analysis Tools: Financial

One of the most notable charts in the financial section is Bulls and Bears. It gives you an instant view of how a coin’s major investors are trading. Because traders that sell or buy less than 1% of the available coins won’t show up on this chart, it’s a good way to filter out the impact of casual investors.

If you look at Bitcoin’s Bulls and Bears chart, you’ll see that that market’s Bulls and Bears have been deadlocked since 2011. This suggests that casual investors may have been the main movers in the market in recent years. For the most part, the whales that joined in 2011 have been holding onto their investments.

Crypto Analysis Tools: Financial

Other charts in the Financial category include In/Out of the Money, Break Even Price, Large Transactions, Price, Average Transaction Size, Average Balance, Volatility and Correlation to BTC.

Crypto Analysis Tools: Network

The East vs. West chart in the Network section may be of interest to crypto day traders, since it identifies the times during which a currency is most heavily traded.

The most popular coins are traded all over the world, but newer coins like the altcoin depicted below aren’t traded very much during particular times of the day.

Other metrics in the Network section include: Address Stats, Transaction Stats, Average Time Between Transactions, Average Time Token is Held and Hash Rate.

Crypto Analysis Tools: Ownership

In Ownership, this By Concentration pie chart can be found. It shows that over 88% of all Bitcoins are owned by retail investors. About 10% of all Bitcoins are owned by professional investors, while whales control about 1.4% of the circulating supply.

Other charts that can be found in Ownership include By Concentration, By Time Held and Price.

Crypto Analysis Tools: Order Books

Thinking about joining a new cryptocurrency exchange to day trade Bitcoin or some other cryptocurrency? You may want to check this Bid Ask Spread chart to compare liquidity across several top exchanges first to find out how quickly you’ll be able to place your trades.

Out of the 12 exchanges that this chart supports, Malta-based exchange OKEx seems to have the best Bitcoin liquidity.

Other Order Books charts include Exchange-Onchain Market Depth and Trades Per Side.

Crypto Analysis Tools: Social

IntoTheBlock started tracking and analyzing Bitcoin’s official Telegram channel last year.

While it may be a coincidence, this data shows that a large spike in positive messaging preceded some slow steady price gains. As time goes on, large spikes may be useful in predicting long term trends. Cryptocurrency day traders can zoom in on this chart to look for clues of short-term price movements, as well.

Other metrics you’ll find in the Social category include Twitter, Github, Search Trends and Key News Topics.

Crypto Analysis Tools: Derivatives

Anyone willing to dive into new cryptocurrency derivatives markets can derive their data from these charts. You can either look at how futures are performing on OKEx and Huobi, or analyze perpetual swap markets on a variety of different crypto exchanges.

Build custom charts in Excel from top crypto tools
