The integrations, which mark the launch of “Zapper v2,” or second version, add to the platform’s already extensive decentralized finance (DeFi) dashboards for which the company is known.
Zapper says its new platform touts over 260 Web3 app integrations, with its services having already been used by 1 million users since its launch two years ago, according to a release.
Analytics dashboards from Zapper and its many competitors mostly operate under the same thesis: The evolution of new blockchain industries, such as NFTs and DAOs, is outpacing the tools to track their development.
“A lot of products operate in a silo, even the analytics products,” Seb Audet, CEO of Zapper, told CoinDesk in an interview. “There are very few products that bridge DeFi with NFTs and DAOs. For us, the important part is the composability and the connection between the ecosystems.”
Audet describes a “Wikipedia-like” vision for the new site, where users can endlessly click and find new information within each page.
The Zapper v2 NFT dashboard allows users to take a deeper look at individual collections, even offering its own price estimation tool that updates in real time based on sale prices.
Users can also profile wallet holders of various collections, tapping into on-chain information, such as token holdings and dates of purchase.
The platform also allows users to follow the wallet activity of their favorite collectors, adding a social spin to the otherwise information-dense experience of tracking on-chain data. Audet says the company plans to eventually integrate a dedicated social feed into its dashboards, a la Coinbase’s new NFT marketplace.
The platform’s DAO dashboard shows users the total value of the different DAO treasuries, along with analytics for its collective holders.
Zapper's last major fundraising came in May 2021, when it raised a $15 million Series A led by Framework Ventures.
