Non-fungible Token APIs (NFT APIs)

From King of Leon launching their music album to Grimes and Lindsay lohan memeing herself on the blockchain, NFTs are making real buzz now. However, we think there is a huge gap when it comes to NFT analytics and building tools to integrate NFT in the broader ecosystem. This article will show you how to access and analyze NFT related data using Bitquery APIs.

Note: We will take CryptoKitties as an example and analyze its CK token (0x06012c8cf97bead5deae237070f9587f8e7a266d), which is an ERC721 (non-fungible) token standard. Here 1CK token represents 1 kitty on the blockchain. Also, check here and here to see what analytics can be built using our NFT APIs.

Basic NFT Metrics

Let’s get some basic metrics of CK token. For example, how many CK tokens (cryptokitties) exist and transfers, senders, and receivers’ information.

NFT Transfers

Now let’s look at the CK transfers; this will also help us understand Cryptokitties activity on-chain and its popularity.

The above query giving the Cryptokitties’ total transfer on a month-by-month basis; you can see the query result in the visualization below.

As you can see in the following widget (It’s an interactive widget), Cryptokitties popularity declined significantly over time.

NFT Senders

Let’s dig into people sending Cryptokitties; as you can see, CK unique senders declined over time, and this year on average, ~650 people sent cryptokitties every month.

You can also check the addresses which sent most of Cryptokitties. Use the following query.

Similarly, you can also check top CryptoKitties receivers using the following query.

NFT Smart Contract Stats

Using our APIs, you can get smart contract properties and stats for any NFT smart contract. For example, in the case of Cryptokitties, there were more than 10.3 million smart contract calls on Cryptokitties’ contracts, in which ~4.3 million internal and ~6 million calls are external. Besides, Cryptokitties Smart contracts processed more than 7 million transactions by 90,742 unique users. At the time of writing this article Total supply of CK token is 1,996,611.

You can also get historical analytics using our APIs; for example, the following widget shows the unique smart contracts callers overtime.

NFT Smart Contract Methods

NFT’s are created through smart contracts. Using our APIs, you can understand what smart contract methods are getting called and their analytics. For example, check Cryptokitties smart contract methods. Using this data, you can learn what type of activity is most famous for a specific NFT project. For example, in the case of more than createSaleAuction method was called more than 1million times. This shows Cryptokitties auction feature is popular among its users.

Similarly, you can also get Cryptokitties smart contract events using our APIs.
