View all Bitcoin transactions live

Clearly the recent increase in the price of Bitcoin caused accounts with a lot of BTC to do something. But on a chain built with privacy in mind, it’s never easy to deduce users’ intentions.

What’s interesting is that whales are not sending their BTC to exchanges to liquidate. Instead, they are sending their BTC to smaller wallets.

Whales in this case are defined as addresses that control over 1,000 BTC. In other words, users who hold over 13 million USD.

Since the price of BTC started to increase, whales have sent a total of…


Last year we launched the Flipside Data Cooperative — which livestreams crypto projects’ on-chain activity for the public to see. Our proprietary process of ingesting 50+ blockchains’ data and transforming it into a universal data model, enables us to accurately compare very different projects’ performances — which is how the Data Co-Op also provides benchmarks for comparing median daily volume, transaction count and unique addresses across projects.

In just 6 months, over 20 projects joined us in our initiative to bring greater transparency to the crypto space.

But many projects wanted to dive deeper into the data to understand what…


Hashmasks’ Name Changing Token (NCT) allows users — as the name suggests- to change the name of their Hashmask. However, token transactions reveal that 30% of newly minted NCT is now owned by addresses that don’t actually own a Hashmask.

Hashmasks are digital art collectibles that have been created by more than 70 artists from across the globe. There are a total of 16,384 unique digital portraits as of now.

Each of these artworks is uniquely designed to be part digital art and part digital collectible. …


Only these seven platforms have DApps that hold value.

Blockchain organizations’ number one goal is to attract developers who will build decentralized applications (DApps). And while many blockchains are succeeding in luring in developers through better technology, documentation and rewards, many of the dapps that are being created are not being used.

We know this because most have a market cap of zero. Analyzed in this report are the only seven blockchains that have over 10 dapps with value in them. …

Who is in, who is out?

Members of the FCAS 25 are reevaluated each month and must be ranked within the top 25 for at least 40 days to qualify. Today, a new set of members was released with Ethereum Classic, Loopring and Status replacing Augur, Basic Attention Token and Aragon.

Overall industry health can be assessed by taking the average FCAS of the 25 top projects. This Overall Industry Health metric works as a good proxy for how the industry is doing as a whole. The score increased 6-points since last month.

Loopring: Will the Paypal for Crypto Stay Relevant after Ethereum 2.0?

LRC FCAS climbed 81-points (10.3%) in the past month.

Ethereum is moving from a proof-of-work blockchain, where computing power determines rewards, to a proof-of-stake platform (dubbed Ethereum 2.0), where anyone who locks up their ETH can be chosen to validate blocks.

This is not only more energy efficient and scalable, but it should also allow the network to be more decentralized, and as such, more secure.

The move will happen in stages, with a proof-of-stake mainnet living alongside the current Ethereum network for a while. …


How people abroad are betting on Trump refusing to leave the White House.

Green means the price went up. Red, the price went down. And when the price goes up, that means more people are betting that Trump will still be in the White House come February 2021.

These bets are being placed on FTX, which is a centralized derivatives exchange. Users can buy tokens like $TRUMPWIN during the election, or $TRUMPFEB since the results, and make money if they win the bet.

Betting on FTX is illegal in the U.S.. So while some Americans might be using a different…


As a key metric for evaluating cryptocurrencies, FCAS (Fundamental Crypto Asset Score) is distributed by many blockchain analytics providers, including CoinMarketCap, Messari, MarketWatch and TheStreet.

OKEx is the first cryptocurrency exchange to feature FCAS directly on its platform, thereby removing the extra step of opening up a separate webpage to access the data.

Just click on any asset you want to trade (i.e. XRP below), and you can assess and compare its fundamental health without any additional research.

FCAS is a comparative metric, comprised of three major factors: user activity, developer behavior, and market maturity. …


View Tether’s On-Chain Activity

Legend: The visual above is a recording taken from our data cooperative. Each bubble represents part of USDT’s active supply on the Ethereum blockchain. This is defined as having been transferred within the last 30 days.

Earlier this year Tether and Bitfinex’s CTO argued that USDT could inject much-needed liquidity and stability into the emerging decentralized finance (DeFi) space. While Tether currently has a very small base in DeFi, it will be interesting to see how that develops.

By monitoring asset flows we can gain better insight into how Tether is being created, destroyed, and used…


Who is in, who is out?

Members of the FCAS 25 are reevaluated each month and must be ranked within the top 25 for at least 40 days to qualify. Considering this month’s rollercoaster of events it may come as a surprise to find that the list today is the same that it was a month ago. The truth is, fundamentals are more stable than price. The good news, they’re also more telling of a project’s potential for growth.
