On-chain forensics is a vital tool for many cryptocurrency traders. Here’s how to make sense of it. 

What is on-chain forensics?

On-chain analysis examines the fundamental factors of cryptocurrencies to enhance trading and investment decisions

Crypto is the first asset class where investor activity data can be extracted from huge data sets on every asset’s blockchain. And, as blockchains are transparent ledgers, data held on them is verifiable and cannot be faked.

How does it work?

On-chain analysts look at all the data stored on the blockchain to measure investor sentiment and behaviour

They take this data like transaction patterns, the classes of investors using the asset, and how they’re using it. They then filter and segment it to identify behavioural patterns. These patters may help to predict an asset’s future price

Why is it important?

On-chain forensics is a valuable tool that allows investors to identify and separate a cryptocurrency’s speculative value from its utility value.

It can be used to identify undervalued and overvalued coins and determine whether an asset’s current price can be justified by its fundamentals.
