Guide: How to Use the NFTScan API to Retrieve NFT Analytic Statistics Data

Validated Project

In the rapidly evolving NFT landscape, data analysis has become an indispensable tool. It not only helps uncover market trends, assess values, and understand holder activities but also provides a solid foundation for decision-making. Given the current market conditions, obtaining NFT Analytic Statistics data analysis is challenging for developers. It requires not only the collection and cleansing of substantial NFT data from various blockchain networks but also expertise in data extraction, transformation, and analysis to acquire accurate and timely analytical insights.

Developers not only need to establish their own automated on-chain data retrieval solutions but also create a professional NFT data repository for standardized data processing and modeling to support multidimensional statistical analysis. At the same time, developers need to continuously iterate and optimize data analysis models to gain insights into NFT market trends and generate analytical insights. Developers still face significant challenges in obtaining reliable and timely NFT statistical data, requiring a substantial investment of time and resources. These challenges include:

  1. Diverse Blockchains and Standards: NFT projects and transaction data on different public chains are vast, complex, and widely distributed, making it extremely difficult to collect comprehensive on-chain data.
  2. Non-Uniform NFT Data Formats: Data formats and storage structures vary widely among NFT projects, requiring time-consuming standardization efforts.
  3. Dealing with On-Chain and Off-Chain Data: NFT statistics require the combination of on-chain data and off-chain metadata for matching and correlation analysis.
  4. Ongoing Iteration of Data Models: NFT data and scenarios change rapidly, necessitating continuous adjustments to data analysis models to ensure effectiveness.
  5. Market Dynamics: The NFT market is highly dynamic, with prices, auction results, and holder information potentially undergoing significant changes in a short period. Therefore, analysis needs to be timely, or the data may become outdated.
  6. Privacy and Security: Some NFT data may involve user privacy, requiring compliance with privacy and data security regulations.
  7. Specialized Data Modeling and Advanced Analytical Requirements: In addition to basic data collection and cleansing, advanced analysis such as market trend analysis, holder activity tracking, valuation models, etc., requires specialized data science and analytical skills.
  8. High Compute Resource Costs: Processing and analyzing vast NFT data require a significant investment in computing resources.

NFTScan provides a rich set of NFT APIs, allowing developers to conveniently access comprehensive NFT data support across major public blockchains. These APIs cover everything from basic NFT data to transaction data and deep analysis interfaces. Developers can easily obtain accurate, real-time multidimensional analytical data through simple API calls. NFTScan uses advanced algorithms to process vast on-chain data, significantly reducing the complexity of acquiring and handling NFT data for developers. With the help of NFTScan's data interfaces, developers can not only access real-time NFT Analytic Statistics data but also stay updated on the latest trends in the NFT market, enabling them to create various innovative NFT applications.

    On September 26th, Eddie Yue, the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, gave a keynote speech at the 2023 Shanghai Securities Market Forum, where he provided detailed information about mBridge. The platform is a joint development project between Thailand, China's Hong Kong, the United Arab Emirates and the International Clearing Bank. The mBridge project is a digital platform developed by central banks from different countries, aimed at using blockchain technology for cross-border payments.

It is expected that more central banks will join and expand the scope of the project. Yue said, "We look forward to more central banks joining this open platform, and soon we will launch what we call the minimum viable product to pave the way for mBridge's gradual commercialization.
