Related Wallets

At the bottom section of the wallet overview, you'll find wallets that Compass identifies as having a close relationship with the wallet you're currently reviewing.
How does Compass determine related wallets?
A wallet is deemed related if it has received at least two NFTs from the wallet you're examining.
Let's consider an example with two wallets, A and B:
  • Wallet A transfers at least two NFTs to Wallet B. As a result, Wallet B will appear as a related wallet on Wallet A's overview page.
  • If Wallet B reciprocates by sending back at least two NFTs to Wallet A, Wallet A will then appear as a related wallet on Wallet B's overview page.
The rationale behind requiring two NFT transfers includes:
  • Avoidance of false positives from one-off transfers for tax purposes, non-standard purchase transactions, NFT staking on wallets controlled by the project contract.
  • Detection of strategic transfers between wallets under the same ownership, which can be indicative of tactics to conceal profits, hide trading histories, circumvent wallet minting limits, or transfer NFTs to a secure vault or to friends and family, among other reasons.
We recommend examining similarities between related wallets. Wallets under the same ownership often have a similar ENS name or exhibit similar trading patterns.
Tip: Click on the green
pill to see the tokens transferred to the related wallet. These transfers are the basis of the relationship. To further ensure the wallets are related, also set filters to include transfers back to the original wallet. Two-way transactions are often telltale signs of wallets having the same owner.
Tip: To group multiple wallets as one, hover over the relevant wallet and click the
button. When you view a group of wallets, any new related wallets are identified based on NFT transfers from the group.
Note: Through testing, we found that our approach minimizes false-positive matches and provides the highest correct related wallet detection.
