In this episode of the BeInCrypto video news show, host Jessica Walker will discuss our top picks for tools and websites to “do your own research” on cryptocurrencies.
*Despite mentioning 7 in the video, we are actually only covering 6 tools and websites.

According to their website, “CryptoPanic is a news aggregator platform indicating impact on price and market for traders and cryptocurrency enthusiasts.” Their tagline Is “If You’re Going To Panic, Panic Early.”
Thus, to help users keep their cool, CyptoPanic crawls through reliable news websites and other sources like social media. It allows users to track news for each cryptocurrency. Thus, CryptoPanic users can avoid panic in the general crypto market and individual crypto markets and communities.
CoinGecko is another cryptocurrency aggregator, providing qualitative data and metrics that can aid users in making trading decisions. Their users can find information about crypto prices, market capitalization, latest updates, as well as crypto educational material.
The crypto aggregator has many pages dedicated to different crypto space spheres, including DeFi, NFTs, and different crypto exchanges. Additionally, the “Categories” feature allows users to glance at the ever-increasing coin subtypes and how they rank against each other.
Etherscan is a useful resource for Ethereum Network users. It enables them to monitor transactions, check smart contracts, investigate statistics, as well as stay current with the latest updates on the blockchain.
It gives users a simple way to navigate the distributed file system, perform analyses, and view and confirm transactions independently. Etherscan is not funded, operated, or managed by the Ethereum Foundation but instead exists as an independent entity.
Lunar Crush is a unique tool that uses AI and machine learning to organize and consolidate information about different cryptocurrencies. It gathers data for 27 different metrics like the number of social media posts, link popularity, and Google search volume.
You can compare crypto by any of these metrics, but Lunar Crush also has its own trademark ranks. The most popular is the “Galaxy Score,” which constantly measures a cryptocurrency against its past performance and uses community metrics like social sentiment and impact.
Glassnode is the definitive on-chain data and intelligence platform. Additionally, it tracks the Bitcoin and Ethereum blockchains for metrics about address and exchange activity. It is also used for long-term holder sentiment and its main selling point – top/bottom indicators.
Glassnode’s free service shows a daily resolution of the metrics. But users can still access over ten full years of history they have, which is enough for most analyses.
Forgive the shameless plug, but the BeInCrypto staff does regularly use our parent website to gather information. This is because we provide the context in our articles, which most other news sources lack.
We provide four main types of content:
- Quick and concise news reports.
- Thorough technical analyses for many cryptocurrencies, including altcoins, DeFi, and NFT coins.
