No one can have a discussion about wallet trackers without mentioning the good ol’ Etherscan. Etherscan was launched way back in 2015, to provide easy access to blockchain data. And today, it remains the source of truth for many on-chain users. While block explorers like Etherscan can be slightly more intimidating for beginners due to the way the information is presented, they are undoubtedly a gold mine of information.

Starting with tracking wallets, Etherscan easily displays every single token held by any wallet, including every single token airdropped into the wallet. Etherscan also computes the total value of the wallet’s holdings.

Etherscan also allows for past transactions to be easily viewed, from the most recent transaction all the way to the wallet’s creation. A nifty feature Etherscan has for those looking to dive a little deeper is enabling downloading of transactions in a CSV file. This could be handy if you’re looking for specific transactions or looking to analyze the data further on other third-party platforms.

Moreover, If you find a token in a wallet that you’re tracking and want to find more, the token’s details can be pulled up for a quick analysis. Etherscan shows the details of holders and distribution of the tokens in circulation. Especially when trading tokens with limited circulating supply, it is always handy to know if there are whales accumulating or dumping on you.

That said, Etherscan’s primary function is still that of a block explorer. If you’re looking for a dedicated wallet tracker, the next few tools are designed specifically to cater to those needs.


When it comes to crypto wallet trackers, one name that comes to mind is Debank. Covering almost every single Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible chain, Debank’s coverage is extensive.
The distribution of a wallet’s holdings across chains and protocols can be gathered in a glance from the Debank interface. The Debank team is also quick to add new chains and support new protocols to ensure accurate reflection of wallet assets. Even relatively newer chains like Flare, which has less than $500K in total value locked (TVL), are tracked by Debank.

In Debank, if you connect your wallet, it is also possible to follow specific wallets to track their every transaction. The above wallet has 191 users tracking it, of which these users hold a combined value of more than $20 million in their own wallets. In a way, it can be seen as a measure of the influence a whale has when they are on the move.

If you’re not sure where to find whale wallets to track, Debank has that covered too. They have a “Whales'' section specifically to highlight whale wallets which could be interesting to you. Their top holdings are also on display to give you a sneak peek into whether you might be interested in seeing what they’re up to.

To make things even simpler, Debank also allows users to create bundles to track their favorite wallets. Bundles are customizable lists of wallets to get all the wallets you’re tracking onto the same page. On the free account, Debank users can create up to 5 bundles with 10 addresses each.

While already a dominant player in the wallet tracker arena, Debank team just keeps building. Debank has a “Tokens” feature in the works, which will likely track trending and high volume tokens. At the same time, they are also fleshing out additional features, including their messaging and live chat features.


Moving to the analytical side, one of the go-to platforms for on-chain analytics is Nansen.
Nansen’s wallet tracker, Nansen Portfolio, was launched after their acquisition of Apeboard, another DeFi portfolio tracker, in mid-2022. Nansen Portfolio includes charts showcasing breakdown of each wallet’s holdings, by token, chain, and whether their holdings are just in their wallet or in protocols.
More than that, their analytics page also includes their performance so you know exactly how well (or badly) your favorite influencers are trading, in absolute value and against BTC and ETH.
Nansen comes with a huge range of on-chain analytics features, although most of them are locked behind their paid tiers, which go from $100 to $2,000 per month. Nansen’s on-chain analytics currently support 11 chains, including Solana, which is often not supported due to the differences in the chain compared to EVM chains.
One of Nansen’s most popular features is known as “Smart Money”. The “Smart Money” dashboard tracks the movement of wallets that have been tagged by Nansen as “Smart Money”. These wallets are categorized as such due to their on-chain history of being highly active as well as profitable in their trades. These wallets are labeled to gather information from market participants who are deemed to be well-connected and knowledgeable.
These Smart Money wallets are broken into several categories to further differentiate between their strengths. For example, the “First Mover LP” label is granted to wallets that consistently are among the first few to interact with new liquidity pools. Such a wallet could be interesting for DeFi yield farmers looking for high yield opportunities. Other labels include “Smart LPs” which track profitable liquidity providers, “Funds” which track active crypto fund wallets, “Airdrop Pro” which tracks highly successful airdrop farmers, and many more.
Smart Money is only one side of the picture though. Nansen’s Wallet Profiler adds a large range of other wallet labels to prolific wallets to allow users to get a better understanding of wallets they may stumble upon on Nansen. Aside from Smart Money, these labels also cover: high value wallets belonging to whales, trader wallets, NFT collector wallets and more.

Arkham Intelligence

Even though they’re the new kid on the block, Arkham Intelligence has already gained considerable mindshare in the wallet tracker and on-chain analytics space. While they are technically still in closed beta, invite codes are easy to get a hold of to get access to the platform.

Arkham launched its closed beta in 2022 and quickly became popular for their wallet visualizer, which drew connections between a tracked wallet and wallets or contracts that they interacted with. These allowed users to easily get an overview of a wallet’s activities as well as uncover potentially other related wallets that could also belong to them.

Alongside the visualizer, alerts can also be set up for users to be notified immediately of any transactions from wallets they are tracking. This could be useful for timely trade entries or exits when whale wallets are on the move.

To top it off, Arkham also has their own internal labeling system, where prominent entities such as centralized exchanges, institutions, funds, prominent traders, crypto whales and influencers can be tracked. Through this labeling system, users can track the holdings and transactions of prominent entities over time, the exchanges they interact with, their profit and loss, and more.

For now, Arkham is still free which makes it a popular choice for on-chain analytics against many of the other paid competitors in the space. Arkham has also hinted in the past that they will be releasing a token in the future too, so watch them closely!


Another relatively new entrant to the wallet tracker space, DexCheck comes with numerous features which are still mostly free.

DexCheck’s wallet analyzer allows users to track buys and sells of tokens across their ten supported chains. It also computes profits and losses accumulated over the time period on specific tokens. Each of these categories are further broken down into the various chains that the wallet is active on.

Besides analyzing individual wallets, DexCheck also has a crypto whale trade tracker, which tracks large trades made on each of their supported chains. The filter starts by default at trades higher than USD 10K, but can be adjusted all the way up to a minimum transaction value of USD 100K. A similar feature is also supported for large NFT trades on Ethereum.

Finally, DexCheck also features a list of top DEX traders where top traders on each chain are highlighted. This is categorized by the token being traded and can be filtered by realized or unrealized profit depending on the information the user is looking for. The results can also be adjusted based on time period to identify good traders in different timeframes.

While still a new product, DexCheck has a long and ambitious roadmap for the coming year, seeking to support new chains, integrate AI to identify trends and arbitrage opportunities, and a copy-trading function, among others.
