📱 Product

Providing industry leading NFT appraisals through advanced machine learning models.

Upshot combines a deep understanding of NFT markets with advanced machine learning models to produce NFT appraisals at scale. In addition to giving developers access to this data through their dev tools, the team is building a suite of tooling at the intersection of NFT x DeFi.


  • Real time pricing of NFTs

  • Wallet level analysis & insights (connect your own & check it out!)

  • NFT data (appraisals are refreshed hourly, so they are never stale)

  • Real time market stats

  • Deal discovery: best deals across NFT marketplaces (see Doodles screenshot below)

If you're bored, I highly recommend checking out the wallet watching tool. Here's a screenshot of GMoney's profile:

📈 Metrics

  • Upshot has appraised ~57 million assets from over 32k collections!

  • Median Absolute Percentage Errors (MAPE) for the more popular and liquid collections, typically between 3 - 8% and ~11% on average for less-liquid collections

Simply put, MAPE is a measurement of how accurate the predictions of a forecasting model are. For those of you that are data nerds, here's the formula to calculate MAPE.
