Etherscan can make you rich if you can track whales and smart money using it.

But most of us don't know how to use it right.

A complete guide to Etherscan and a bonus list of alpha threads 🧵: Image
1/ Etherscan is a blockchain explorer for the Ethereum blockchain.

It is used to :
♦ Analyze transactions

♦ Explore contracts

♦ View account balance

♦ Find and analyze tokens

♦ Track wallets
2/ Track Wallets

Entering wallet address in the search bar at the top will display:

♦️Transaction Hash - ID of the transaction made

♦️Method - Method used to execute the transaction

♦️Block - Block on which trans got executed

♦️From, To - From and To addresses of the trans Image
3/ Track Tokens

To track tokens lets first get the token address from Coinmarketcap.

Enter the token name in search bar and copy the token address. Image
4/ Now that you have token address, its time to enter it into Etherscan

Paste this on the browser's search bar :

Append it with the token address like below :
5/ After hitting the url you will see the following tabs:

♦️Holders - Holders of the tokens with % of holding

♦️DEX Trades - Buy and sell transactions happening in dex

♦️Contract - Contract of the token

♦️Comments - Comments made on the token Image
6/ Now its time to look for wallets to track.

Go to the transfers tab after searching for the token.

Click on Last as shown by the arrow in the pic.

This will show a list of early buyers. Now its time to track their wallets and see if they are profitable. Image
7/ Now copy and paste the wallet address of one of the early buyer in Etherscan.

Look through their trades and check if their trades are profitable.

If they are profitable then boom, you have a great wallet address to track and make profit. Image

In my last thread 157 profile visits converted to 88 follows(56% conversion).

Unfortunately your favorite influencoor asks you to be the reply guy to get from 0 to 1000 followers .

In this thread I reveal how i reached 510 followers in 41 days of creating this acct.🧵
1/ On the day 1 of creating this acct i wrote a thread that resulted in 0 likes and 0 follows(see pic).

I had 10 followers then, mostly bots which follow you when you create an acct.

That dint deter me, i started putting out threads consistently.
2/ I tried to be the reply guy, waiting for the big influencers to post with my notifications turned on.

This wasted my time instead of being beneficial to me.

Here and there i might have got 1 or 2 follows but it was a frustrating experience.
