Crypto wallet data is the information recorded in a blockchain about that address’ interactions within the network. This subset of blockchain analytics includes an address’ transaction history, current and historical balances, token transfers, and metadata about the wallet address itself. For institutions in the digital asset space, wallet analytics are most often used to maintain compliance and analyze the flow of funds throughout a network.

Granular Wallet Data

By analyzing crypto wallet data, institutions can extract valuable insights regarding individual wallets and their interactions on the blockchain. Tracing the trails left by wallet addresses establishes connections to other wallets and uncovers the patterns necessary for demonstrating compliance. When it comes to the essential wallet analytics, institutions should consider the following:

Activity, assets, and account balances: A high level of transparency into a wallet address allows you to monitor changes in balances and transaction patterns over time. In the case of whale watching, wallet activity data can provide valuable insights for predicting market trends and making informed investment decisions. Wallet activity data is instrumental in proactively monitoring an address for potential fraudulent activities.

Token transfers: By examining these transfer activities, one can gain a deeper understanding of the movement and utilization of the token within the ecosystem. Understanding the token transfer activities of a specific wallet can provide valuable insights when analyzing the flow of funds for a token, evaluating its tokenomics, or conducting investigations on a wallet address for counterparty monitoring purposes. 

Logs and functions: Logs are recorded data indicating events on the blockchain. Functions are blocks of code executed within smart contracts for automation purposes. Analyzing a wallet’s recorded functions and logs can provide additional context for its interactions within specific events and the DeFi ecosystem overall. 

Why Monitor Wallet Addresses

As cryptocurrency adoption expands and evolves, it is increasingly important for institutions to have a thorough understanding of the activities occurring within their wallets and those of their counterparties. By monitoring wallet addresses, users can identify potential risks or illegal activity, ensure compliance with regulatory requirements, and make informed decisions about token investments.

Evaluating DeFi Project Tokenomics 

When considering a DeFi partnership opportunity, blockchain and wallet metrics are needed for assessing its tokenomics, activity, and other metrics. As part of a tokenomics review, you’ll need analytics such as the token’s supply, price, market cap, and holdings to ensure they meet valuation and risk standards. Deeper token holder analysis is then possible by cross referencing wallet addresses from the tokenomics review with available wallet address data such as current and historical token balances, token transfers, and logs from these events.

Regulatory Compliance Management

Crypto counterparty monitoring is complicated by the industry’s limitations around identity and anonymity. With Amberdata, it’s not only possible to determine which addresses your institution has interacted with, but also metrics around their transactions and activities. Equipped with this information, it’s easier to maintain the appropriate whitelists and blacklists necessary for avoiding bad actors and demonstrating compliance.

Tax Compliance Management

With access to data for every transaction from every wallet associated with your organization, you can understand the organization’s tax liability. Additionally, Amberdata provides granular data for DEX liquidity providers including staked tokens, pool returns, fees, and the USD value of LP tokens. Together, these datasets allow tax and compliance officers to create precise PnLs and submit proper documentation for audits.

Analyzing Flow of Funds

Blockchain analysis in the crypto ecosystem leads to an unprecedented scale of particularity: analyzing the flow of funds provides detailed insights about transactions and wallet connections. 

These wallet connections uncover hidden networks and relationships between participants or unveil common ownership, gaining insights into market trends and network health.
