Crypto data service Nansen announced Thursday that it is adding support for transactions on the Solana blockchain.

In a press statement, the startup pointed to Solana’s growth across non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and decentralized finance (DeFi). The integration will “help to identify emerging” trends on both fronts, it said.

On Thursday, Nansen’s Solana overview page showed the fast and cheap blockchain had 1.31 million “unique 1-day visitors.” Decentralized exchange (DEX) Serum accounted for 32% of “program executions.”
