Cool NFT tools | Q1 2022
Awesome resources to add to your NFT toolbox!
Metaversal is a Bankless newsletter for weekly level-ups on NFTs, virtual worlds, & collectibles
Dear Bankless Nation,
One of my more popular articles from last year was a curated list of helpful NFT resources, Tools for NFT Summer.
6 months have passed since then, though, and in that span many new developments and projects have arrived in the ecosystem.
Accordingly, for today’s Metaversal I’ve curated a new slate of NFT resources that I think you should know about or take a closer look at.
This won’t be a comprehensive list and some of the included projects aren’t necessarily new to the scene. What they all share in common, though, is putting varying kinds of compelling NFT powers at our fingertips!
Selected NFT tools (Q1 2022)
Flips — An NFT analytics hub that specializes in tracking delistings, floor increases, and volume increases.
Nansen — An incredible analytics hub for DeFi and NFT data, excellent for identifying activity surges around new NFT projects. The service offers a 7-day free trial and some public dashboards, e.g. an awesome Gas Tracker.
Artiva — A platform for building your own NFT platform in no-code fashion!
