Business opportunity

NFT market size is now worth $3 billion with the amount of traded NFTs ranging from 30 to 50 thousand tokens daily. The market is huge however it is very volatile, with prices constantly changing. Thus it is very important for collectors and investors to have a reliable tool helping to analyze real-time fluctuations happening with the tokens.That’s why CheckNFT decided to expand its ecosystem and deliver a mobile application to help NFT enthusiasts track the latest changes: price, amount of sales, and volume by just a tap on the smartphone.

Project goals

The key goals we aimed to achieve while working on the project were:

  • 1

    Provide users with constantly updating data on chosen tokens

  • 2

    Allow users to check statistics via widgets without the need to open an app or browser

  • 3

    Enable NFT owners to always have quick access to their tokens’ statistics

  • 4

    Give users the opportunity to place their favorite NFTs on lockscreens as animated live photos


PixelPlex team built Hodl APE — an iOS mobile application that allows users to monitor selected NFTs on the go with highly-precise widgets and turn NFTs into lockscreen wallpapers. The app supports more than 258K collections and 81M tokens with new ones being constantly added to the base. The data is derived from CheckNFT’s data intelligence and AI analytics tools that track NFT trends and detect changes.

Hodl APE allows users to install widgets with detailed information about the tokens such as average and floor price, volume and sales. The graphs are available even without unlocking the phone — users just need to swipe right on the screen and they will see all changes that took place in the last 7 days.

To add the widgets, the users need to:

  • 1

    Sign up and search for NFTs

  • 2

    Choose the NFT to be shown in the widget (1-2 items)

  • 3

    Adjust the preview — choose if it is just a picture or the token's name and price are shown as well, and set the price currency (USD or ETH)

  • 4

    Adjust the widget — set the price currency (USD or ETH)

  • 5

    Press the “Add widget” button and enjoy all the necessary graphs about the chosen tokens right on the screen

For quick access to even more metadata, users can click the “See more” button and get redirected to CheckNFT.iO where they find tokens' activity history, properties, risks, storage and metadata type. This way users have immediate access to comprehensive NFT analysis and can make informed decisions on NFT sale or purchase.
