The number of mobile wallet users in crypto is now at an all time high of 28 million, according to the data from our State of Crypto Index. This is a good indicator that the industry’s UX improvements are bringing more mainstream users into the space.

@MetaMask Mobile, @CoinbaseWallet, and @TrustWallet continue to be staples and collectively account for a majority of users. However, newer mobile wallets like @phantom have been growing the fastest in recent months.

@cryptocom estimates that there are 580 million crypto owners globally, which means there is room to grow the total number of mobile wallet users by more than 20x from the existing base of crypto owners alone.

You can track this metric, along with many others, at . The data is updated monthly.a16zcrypto.com/stateofcryptoImage

When minting NFTs, creators face a number of decisions that can affect the performance of their projects.

I dug into the data to help inform people’s choices. 🧵👇

I analyzed minting data from the top 150 NFT collections on @opensea. Here are some benchmarks and takeaways that could offer creators some insight.
Choosing an “ideal” mint price is super important. A higher price means more revenue generated upfront, assuming there is enough demand. But a higher price will also dampen the potential returns for your earliest backers, which could impact secondary volume.

Introducing the NFT Analyst Starter Pack. Enter a contract address, and with one command generate CSV extracts for all token transfers, historical sales, and each underlying item’s metadata (w/ calculated rarity scores). Powered by @AlchemyPlatform. 🧵👇

Having spent a lot of time down the NFT rabbit hole, it's surprisingly difficult to export even the most basic data associated with a collection (transfers, sales, and metadata).
That’s why we built the NFT Analyst Starter Pack, which is designed to be extremely lightweight and easy to use — even for beginners! All you need is a free Alchemy API key.

Statistical rarity can be very misleading when it comes to NFT valuations. Why? Because cultural trends are often more powerful. Here’s an example of this you can see in the CryptoPunks data 👇.
Out of 10,000 punks, there are exactly 259 that have a “Hoodie” and 212 that have a “Clown Nose”. If you believe that rarity determines value, then clown noses should be priced higher than hoodies - this is provably untrue.
Hoodie punks have consistently been sold at a 2-4x premium. One simple way to measure this is by looking at the market price of hoodie punks sold relative to the average price of the last 50 sales (excluding Zombies, Apes, and Aliens).

Event logs are one of the most important sources of historical data on Ethereum. Learning how they are structured, and how to access them, is critical for anyone who wants to analyze smart contract interactions. Here’s what I’ve learned. 🧵👇
When smart contracts on Ethereum are invoked, they will often emit event logs that describe what has happened. These logs provide a way to store small amounts of data permanently on the blockchain.
Each log record consists of up to four 𝒕𝒐𝒑𝒊𝒄𝒔 as well as 𝒅𝒂𝒕𝒂. Topics are searchable fields that can hold up to 32 bytes. Because of this limitation, they are good for storing things like addresses but cannot be used reliably for things like arrays or strings.

The Ethereum developer community is more vibrant than ever. We estimate that more developers have entered the Ethereum ecosystem so far this year than the previous two years combined. 🧵👇 Image
We can analyze the growth of Ethereum's developer activity by looking at the GitHub stars on key developer repositories (web3js, truffle, solidity, hardhat, ethersjs, OpenZeppelin contracts, web3py, and scaffold-eth) over time.
There are now over 39K Github accounts that have starred at least one of these repositories. I believe this is a decent proxy for the number of unique developers building on Ethereum.
