In this article, I’m sharing some of the must-have crypto analysis tools that one should use to improve their research on cryptos before investing. These tools are being used by most of the crypto investors around the world to get the best out of the crypto revolution.
However, always remember, these tools and services only give you insights that you as an investor have to analyze and decide for yourself. And the good news is most of the tools are absolutely free to use.
So let me explain about these tools and services one at a time.
8 Must-Have Tools For Crypto Investors
1. Glassnode Studio
Glassnode studio is an On-chain market intelligence platform, that provides many significant amounts of data related to any coin.
Let me help you see the benefit of Glassnode studio:
It provides can the data to analyze exchange inflow and exchange outflow of any coin. Now, when you see that number of coins deposited on exchange has increased, it is a sign that more people intend to sell. When you analyze Bitcoin exchange inflow data of January 2019, you could see a significant increase of Bitcoin deposit on exchange, and then the painful bear market started.
You don’t have to be to be a data scientist to make sense out of it. All you need to understand what different metrics meant, and what kind of indicator it is.
We may do a detailed review of Glassnode studio in days to come, for now do bookmark Glassnode, as it would help you in better analyze a cryptocurrency.
Santiment is a behavior analytics platform for cryptocurrencies, sourcing on-chain, social, and development information on 900+ coins.
Just like Glassnode, it provides a ton of on-chain data, on-exchange data, social data to help you decide overall price movement of any cryptocurrency. There is a free plan, and a paid plan available for Santiment.
I often use this tool to understand the coin accumulation action, as it helps in determining the future price projection of a coin. I believe you should spend some time understanding different metrics of Santiment, and you will have more data under your disposal to make an informed decision.
You all must have heard about a famous quote “buy the rumor, sell the news“. The same concept applies to crypto. But where to find the real rumor and news? Well, that’s what I am going to answer in this section.
I have been using CoinMarketCal, an evidence-based, community-driven cryptocurrency calendar for 6 months now. It is a perfect, free tool, to know the authentic news and rumors about your favorite cryptocurrency. And then, as per evidence that is timeline-based, one can formulate their buy/sell/HODL strategy. I myself have used it many times and you can easily gain up to 20% just based on rumor and news as dictated by CoinMarketCap. You can expect an accuracy of over 90% of whatever you see on CoinMarketCal because it is evidence-driven. And the same evidence can be verified and by anyone using CoinMarketCal.
Intotheblock is a unique data analytic tool that uses machine learning and advanced statistics to deliver actionable intelligence on crypto assets.
It provides the data which can be utilized by short term or long term investor about any crypto asset in the market. The dashboard is easy to use and once you know how to use the data to make a decision on investment, your cryptoanalysis will be faster and more data-driven.
Watch the below video to understand how Intotheblock works:
5. Skew Analytics
Derivatives trading has a meaningful impact on the price of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and a few select cryptocurrencies. Skew Analytics consolidates data from top derivative exchanges, and help you analyze it. On a single screen, you would be able to see data from all top derivative exchanges like:
Here is how the analytics look like:
Well, this tool is useful for investors, who is looking to find the idle price for investing. For analyzing the coin fundamental, there are more websites which we will dig deeper.
6: Crypto Portfolio tool (Track your Crypto profits)
Alright, so all the above tools must have helped you to pick a winning project and you have made some investments.
The question is, how are you going to monitor your investment?
You need to know how many units of a coin you have and how much it is worth in total. Most importantly, you need to know the profit/loss percentage you are at.
Well, for this you need a crypto portfolio tool.
- Investors can use something as simple as Cryptocompare portfolio tool
- A trader should use something more advanced like Cointracking
There are plenty more, but these two will serve your purpose well.
CoinCheckup, just like a health checkup, is a one-stop shop as well as the most integrated solution available freely in the market to analyze cryptocurrencies.
It is a crypto research platform that gives you a lot of insights on different cryptocurrencies from various angles. Some of these angles are:
- Fundamental analysis of coin
- Coin specs
- Investment stats
- News etc…
Out of all these, I like ‘general & averages investment stats’ the most because it gives you the overall picture of volatility as well as the returns one would have made on that asset in 7 to 30 days. For example look at this investment stats for Cardano at CoinCheckup.
Again, here in Monero’s matrix, you can see its CMGR (compound monthly growth rate) of 12.44%. You can get similar insights about a crypto from this tool which can help you decide on buying/selling/HODLing.
If you are a crypto investor who is ignoring the development of a particular currency before investing in it, you are doing it wrong.
At the end of the day, cryptocurrencies are software protocols and if they are not developed, maintained, and improved, they will not have any future and will eventually die.
Hence, keeping a tab on the development of a particular blockchain and crypto projects is very important. Also, as most projects are open-source on Github, it becomes easy to keep track of them.
But one cannot simply go and check the Github of all cryptocurrencies one by one. That’s where Github monitoring tools like CryptoMiso become important.
Using CryptoMiso, one can check how many commits a particular crypto project has done in a given time frame. Commits are nothing but the number of times the code is improved or added to the code base of a project.
This provides high-level tracking for the development activity happening in a particular crypto project.
9. Crypto News Aggregators
Crypto news aggregator is not a tool but a concept that is being made available by many tools to aggregate the crypto news all at one place.
This aggregation helps investors to be at the top of the market and they can easily distinguish real from the rumors.
Such news aggregators collate news from all the major crypto publishers such as:
- ethnes.com etc..
Also, some aggregator tools pull up the news from Twitter that is already segregated for the investors to analyze.
This way crypto investors can keep a quick and hassle-free tab on the news of different cryptocurrencies and formulate their strategies accordingly.

10. Trading Bots & Rebalancing Tools
Trading bots once connected to exchanges trade on behalf of you.
And in crypto, they are needed when one coin is on one exchange and another coin is on another exchange. So with trading bots, you can trade and access on several exchanges all at the same time.
Also, while bear and boom markets it is not always good to HODL coins, the new way forward is to rebalance your portfolio.
Some suggested services/tools in this niche are:
Conclusion: Crypto Analysis software’s
These tools are important for any investor before they decide to put their money in a particular crypto project. I have been using these tools in synergy to find an optimum solution for my investment decisions.
However, using these Crypto analysis tools doesn’t mean your profit is guaranteed. It means you are making a more informed decision. Also, using these tools together can be challenging at first but as you get used to them, you will understand which to use, when and how.
I will be back with something new that will keep you ahead in this dynamic cryptoland.
