Free blockchain analytics tool
I wanted to share Arkham with you all (not sponsored, just a tool I like). I tracked everything happening with the FTX and Alameda wallets last year using the platform. It is still in beta, but I have found it very useful.
A few things you can do with it:
• Build dashboards to track entities’ transactions
• Visualise wallet flows across many blockchains
• Analyse wallet holdings and filter by value, token, time & counter party
