- DegenKnows also provides access to actionable insights from top wallets including celebrities, alpha groups, and influencers.

- Opera users can also now register human-readable handles for their crypto wallets.
DegenKnows provides deep on-chain- and off-chain- analytics that can help users discover and explore NFTs before they gain mass appeal or are even minted. It also allows users to get a glimpse of the most popular NFT projects and to study charts indicating their popularity, as well as key collectors and opinion leaders in the NFT space.
To help weed out potential scams, DegenKnows provides users with off-chain data from social media sources, as well as an analysis of the team behind the NFT project, along with on-chain data.
Users can gain aggregated insights into the project’s team info, including the number of social media followers, active member number, and total mentions over 24 hours. The platform also provides a curated content feed for each NFT project, allowing users to see the most important posts without time-consuming research.
The curated feed also makes it possible for users to identify whether a community is made up of real people or bots. Users can also see key opinion leaders in the NFT space that are following certain projects. Once the scams have been filtered out and research on a given project has been done, users can utilize DegenKnows to set reminders for raffles and mints.
Alongside the launch of DegenKnows, Opera has also integrated support for NEAR Protocol (NEAR), Elrond (EGLD), as well as Fantom (FTM) blockchains, adding to existing integrated networks that include Ethereum, Bitcoin, Polygon, BNB Chain, and others.
Opera users can also now register human-readable handles (username@opera) for their crypto wallets via the Foundation for Interwallet Operability (FIO) for free.
“Our aim with the Opera Crypto Browser is to provide a portal into Web3 at its fullest. From browsing dApps to using their funds, our users can explore Web3 from the safe environment of a user-friendly browser by a trusted brand. Today, with DegenKnows, we are giving them an innovative tool to explore and understand the world of NFTs and perhaps spot the next big project ahead of others,” said Susie Batt, Crypto Ecosystem Lead at Opera.
The launch of DegenKnows comes hot on the heels of Reddit’s recent success in the NFT space, which onboarded almost 3 million new users to the nascent market and generated $10 million in sales in 3 months.
As part of the launch, all users of the Opera browsers are granted Premium access to DegenKnows for free. Non-Opera users can access a limited free trial that will be available until the end of 2022.
