Online Class

Why this training is important?

The role of a Token Researcher and DeFi Analyst is rapidly becoming highly sought-after in the modern financial landscape, by venture capitalists, hedge funds, family offices, and big banks. With the rise of digital assets, many investors are eager to gain a better understanding of market conditions, token fundamentals, and on-chain data. A token Researcher and DeFi Analyst can identify trends, spot opportunities, evaluate digital assets, and give advice on investment strategies.​

To achieve this, a deep understanding of Tokenomics, web3 business models, and the use of on-chain data are essential skills for any investor.

In this course, you will learn the tools you can use, how to evaluate a token and get in touch with industry experts. The basis for this course will be the Token Evaluation Framework developed by the Token Research Cooperative (TRC).​


During the training, participants will:​​


1. Learn easy-to-follow frameworks

You will learn a framework for evaluating ERC20 tokens developed by Tokenomics experts, that has around 130 questions covering 9 dimensions ranging from value proposition, supply & demand, business model, and growth.​


2. Learn how to analyze on-chain data


With on-chain data, researchers can get an in-depth understanding of a token’s transaction history, which provides insight into its liquidity, market movements, and performance over time. Furthermore, on-chain data can be used to identify patterns and trends, providing researchers with a better understanding of a token’s potential for growth.

3. Learn how to write a research report

At the end of the course, you will be able to create a research report, based on your findings, qualitative evaluation, and quantitative on-chain data. We will give a template that puts together these findings.

Training structure

The training will take place over the course of 10 weeks. Every week, the participants will interact with industry experts, and also be able to practice their skills on real-life projects which would be included in their practical experience. The table below describes the agenda of the Token Researcher and DeFi Analyst Training.
