Collection Mint History

Accessing Mint Analytics

To navigate to this, click Collections, then select the collection you want to analyze. Click Mint to access the Mint Analytics.
Like other sections within collection analytics, you'll see the collection name, contract address, contract deployment date, total tokens on the contract, royalties, reveal status, a brief description, and some relevant links.

Understanding the Mint Analytics

The Mint Analytics section displays several useful pieces of information:
  • Total minted: The total number of NFTs minted from this collection.
  • Mint price: The price for which these NFTs were initially sold.
  • Total value: The total ETH the project owners received from the mint. Calculated as total minted times mint price.
  • Median tokens per transaction: The average number of tokens minted per transaction.
  • Peak mints per hour: The maximum number of mints that occurred in a given hour.
  • Mints over time (bar graph): A graphical representation of the minting process over time.
  • Top minters: Wallets that minted the most tokens from the collection.
  • Unique minters: The total number of unique wallets that minted tokens from the collection.

Interpreting Mint Analytics for Collection Assessment

The Mint Analytics page offers valuable data to evaluate the success of a collection's minting process.
  • Total minted vs. total supply: A closer ratio between total minted and total supply is a positive sign, indicating high demand for the collection.
  • Mint price vs. current price: Comparing the mint price with the current trading price can indicate the collection's price performance.
  • Median tokens per transaction: This can give a rough idea of unique minter percentage or unique wallet distribution.
  • Peak mints per hour: A higher number, relative to the collection size, is generally better as it signifies high interest in the collection. Note that this may vary if there was a whitelist mint.
  • Mints over time (bar graph): This chart shows the minting rate over time, providing insights into the collection's demand.
  • Top and unique minters: Identifying the top minters and the number of unique minters can help gauge the distribution of the collection across wallets.
Keep in mind that these metrics are only indicators and not definitive measures of a collection's success. By understanding and interpreting these data points, you can make more informed decisions when participating in a mint or trading in the secondary market.
