In the ever-growing space of crypto, there are so many projects to keep track of, but with so few tools. Here are the top 10 free crypto tools you may utilize in your crypto journey.
(This article is adapted from Jack Niewold’s Twitter thread on the top 10 free crypto tools)
1. Dune Analytics
Dune Analytics is a powerful tool for blockchain research. It offers an on-chain analytics dashboard for both technical and non-technical investors.
Dune gives you all the tools to query, extract, and visualize vast amounts of data from the blockchain, unlocking the power of public blockchain data by making it accessible to everyone.
Here’s an example of Solana NFT Transactions on the Solana Marketplace.
You may also be able to access other popular dashboard tags ranging from DeFi, DEXs, and Opensea to specific network data like Ethereum and Uniswap.
This platform allows users to scan various DEX projects and analyse them using various tools including real-time price charts and trading history.
The range of currently available assets comprises Ethereum, BSC, Polygon, Avalanche, Fantom, Harmony, Cronos and 20 other chains.
They even have a “trends” tab which you may find useful in search of your next crypto gem.
I found this application useful as I am able to access price changes across various networks all with a click of a button instead of scouring through them on individual sites.
Koinly covers you during tax season and provides you with that last-minute help to those that need it.
Koinly is one of the biggest and most widely used crypto tax accounting platforms online. It allows users to monitor all cryptocurrency transactions and activity and automatically generate regulatory complaint tax reports.
Basically, just by plugging in your Binance/Ethereum addresses, it will churn the total capital gain/loss that you will be taxed on.
Coindix is a tool for yield farmers. The platform monitors 10,784 vaults on 58 protocols through 27 chains. From degen farms to stablecoin farming, they got all your yield farming needs covered.
They allow users to find the best yield rates across the chains it covers.
This gives you a one-stop shop as to where the highest APYs are and gives you better insight as to where you would want to deploy your funds.
5. MEVProtection – CoW Protocol
Cowswap is a DEX aggregator which gives you the best exchange rate for any token on Ethereum.
These trades and swaps are all MEVProtected. This means that you are protected from being a sandwich attacked.

Tradingview gives your access to community-built tools like stochastic moving averages, Fibonacci retracements and other indicators you may find useful for technical analysis.

Debank is an all-in-one cryptocurrency portfolio tracker designed to manage DeFi assets.
It allows users to track full portfolios through various chains, compare interest rates, manage assets, analyze risks, and enable users to perform token swaps for token exchange.
This program is amazing since it allows you to track not only your own assets but also the movement of whales.
CoinGecko is our first stop when researching tokens. This platform shows everything you need relating to the token from
- Market Cap/ Price
- Total Value Locked (TVL)
- Protocol Documentation
- Contract Addresses

9. DeFi Llama
DeFi Llama is the largest TVL aggregator for DeFi.
Their data is fully open-sourced and maintained by a team who is passionate contributors of various protocols.
It provides users with dashboards which help you delve deeper into the DeFi space not only with token prices but other metrics you might deem useful in making your DeFi investment decision.
Ultimately, this platform gives you the ability to dig into graphs which shows how different ecosystem develops relative to one another.
L2Beat is an analytics and research website about Ethereum layer 2 scaling. The platforms allow you to find in-depth comparisons of major protocols live on Ethereum.
L2Beat sheds light on L2’s overall market share, 7-day change, and more to provide insight into the current landscape of layer 2’s.
While it is a more narrow tool than others on this list, if you are optimistic about Ethereum Layer Two networks, it is quite valuable for your research.
