Frequently asked questions.

What is Token Terminal?

Token Terminal is a platform that provides traditional financial and business metrics on cryptoassets.
We believe that blockchain and decentralized applications share many conceptual similarities with traditional marketplace companies -- they're Internet-native marketplaces that offer digital services, which generate cash flows or revenues to their supply-side participants and owners (tokenholders).

How can a cryptocurrencies and tokens have revenues?

Both blockchains and decentralized applications extract fees from their users. These fees, which we calculate as revenue, can be paid as transaction fees, trading fees or interest payments. The total revenue is split between the projects’ supply-side participants (liquidity providers or miners) and owners (tokenholders). i.e. blockchains and dapps can have revenues, and are owned and operated by their tokenholders, similar to how companies are owned and operated by their shareholders.

Where does your data come from?

We extract our data from third-party providers or directly from the blockchain. Our third-party data providers are The Graph, Etherscan, Alchemy, DeFi Pulse, CoinGecko, Coin Metrics, Uniswap TWAP oracle, Subscan and GitHub. We perform transformations of the raw data in our relational database (PostgreSQL), and serve the data in a standardized format in the dashboards available in the Terminal.

Our data is updated every four (4) hours. The market cap data is updated every ten (10) minutes.
