Project dashboards

Project dashboards are a core feature of Token Terminal. The dashboards present the most important data we have on a project on a single page in a standardized way. They are divided into different sections that are described below.
You can see an explanation of many of the metrics and buttons by hovering your cursor over them. The best way to learn to use the dashboards is to try things out!
On this page, we use the Compound dashboard as an example.
In the bottom right corner of each chart, there is a Download button that enables users on the Token Terminal Pro plan to download the shown data.

Top panel

On the top of the dashboard, you’ll find a summary of the project. If the project has launched their own token, its ticker symbol is shown in parentheses next to the project’s name. You can save the project to your favorites by clicking the star icon next to the project’s name. If you click the Info button, you are shown a short summary on what the project is, how it works, and who owns it. For selected projects, you can see the most important smart contracts of the project with links to blockchain explorer websites to learn more by clicking the Smart contract registry button. The section below the project’s name presents a summary of the financial data currently available for the project. At the bottom of the top panel, you can find some major exchanges where the project’s token can be traded.

Key metrics

The Key metrics section shows the business metrics time series. By default, fully diluted market cap and total revenue are shown, if available. You can choose the metrics to display by clicking the buttons in the top left corner of the chart. By default, data for the past 180 days is shown. You can change this by clicking the buttons 7D, 30D, etc. Data granularity is daily, unless data is shown since the launch of the project, in which case data granularity is monthly. By toggling the switch Show as cumulative, revenue data is shown as cumulative over time.

Revenue share

The Revenue share chart shows a breakdown of the revenue split between the project’s supply-side participants and tokenholders. You can show supply-side revenue, protocol revenue, or both by clicking the buttons in the top left corner of the chart or by clicking the entries in the chart legend. By default, data for the past 180 days is shown. This can be changed by clicking the buttons 7D, 30D, etc. Data granularity is daily, unless data is shown since the launch of the project, in which case data granularity is monthly. By toggling the switch Show as cumulative, revenue is shown as cumulative over time. By clicking the switch Show as % share, data is shown relative to other visualized data.

Composition

The Composition chart shows a detailed breakdown of the composition of some of the business metrics. The metric to decompose can be chosen by clicking on the buttons in the top left corner of the chart. By default, data for the past 180 days is shown. Individual chart elements can be hidden by clicking the corresponding legend entry. This can be changed by clicking the buttons 7D, 30D, etc. Data granularity is daily, unless data is shown since the launch of the project, in which case data granularity is monthly. By toggling the switch Show as cumulative, revenue is shown as cumulative over time. By clicking the switch Show as % share, data is shown relative to other visualized data.

Competitive landscape

The Competitive landscape section enables you to compare the project to other listed projects. The metric to visualize and the projects to compare can be selected using the drop-down menus in the top left corner. Projects can be removed from the chart by clicking the buttons with project names or hidden by clicking the corresponding legend entry. By default, data for the past 180 days is shown. This can be changed by clicking the buttons 7D, 30D, etc. Data granularity is daily, unless data is shown since the launch of the project, in which case data granularity is monthly.

Custom charts

Users on the Token Terminal Pro plan can create custom charts by clicking the button Create your own charts in the bottom left corner of the terminal website. The screenshot below shows an example of a custom chart visualizing the circulating market cap and total revenue of Aave and Compound, two major lending protocols.
The buttons in the top left corner allow you to add more projects and metrics to the custom chart. The number of metrics that can be simultaneously shown is limited to two but the number of projects is unlimited. The chart type drop-down menu allows you to choose the style of the chart out of three options: line chart, bar chart, or area chart. You can define whether to show data stacked or unstacked. Note that only bar and area charts can be stacked. You can save the custom chart to your favorites by clicking the star icon and providing a name for the chart. The shown data can be downloaded as a csv file by clicking the Download button in the bottom left corner.

Data tables

Data tables show our up-to-date data in a numerical format organized into a table with one row per project and one column per metric. You can find the data table at the bottom of the terminal.
To get access to historical data, check out our API!
At the very bottom of each table, there is a Download button that enables users on the Token Terminal Pro plan to download the data. By default, the data table contains all the listed projects and is sorted by monthly total revenue. The table can be sorted according to other metrics by clicking the column headers. The data table can be filtered to show only blockchains, dapps, or your favorites by clicking the buttons in the top left corner. The buttons in the top right corner let you sort the data table according to different metrics and see how the chosen metrics have changed over time.

Custom tables

You can create your custom tables by clicking Customize table. Simply choose the metrics you want to see in the table and click Save to be shown the custom table, or click Save to favorites to save the custom table to your favorites under a name of your choice.

Download master sheet

Users on the Token Terminal Pro plan can download our master sheet that contains the current values of all of our metrics for all listed projects by clicking the Master sheet link on their account page.
