Analysis Panel

The most frequently used panel by users is the Analysis Panel. In this panel, users can view a fund flow diagram composed of nodes and edges, along with three commonly used toolboxes for investigation, layout adjustment, and appearance editing.


Currently, there are two types of nodes that can appear on the canvas: regular address nodes and bridge nodes.

Address nodes are real addresses on the blockchain, uniquely identified by the combination of the blockchain and the address itself. Users can view various information on address nodes, such as the blockchain, address, name tag, compliance risk, monitoring status, and more. In the subsequent section Address Panel, we will provide a more detailed introduction to address information. Users can also perform multiple operations on address nodes, including fund tracking, editing name tags, deletion, and more.

The bridge node is an abstract representation we have introduced to indicate a cross-chain bridge protocol. When a user's address interacts with a bridge node, it suggests that the user may have assets crossing different blockchains. To view the specific bridge addresses with which the user's address interacts, you can refer to the InterChain Tracker panel for more details.


Edges represent the relationships between nodes. Currently, there are three types of relationships: regular asset transfer, cross-chain asset transfer, and contract creation. In the example provided below, we can simultaneously observe these three types of relationships.

Investigation toolbox

The Investigation Toolbox primarily provides filtering and editing capabilities for the data on the canvas. It consists of the following six key functionalities.

Address Filter lists all the analyzed addresses, including those displayed on the canvas and those not displayed on the canvas. Users can search for specific addresses in the filter and adjust their visualization status.

Token Filter lists all the analyzed tokens. If all transfers related to a token are displayed on the canvas, it will be represented as selected (checkbox checked); conversely, if none of the transfers related to a token are displayed on the canvas, it will be represented as unselected (checkbox unchecked). It's important to note that if only some transfers related to a token are displayed on the canvas, it will be represented as partially selected (checkbox indeterminate).

Add Address/Tx allows users to add specific addresses or transactions (intra-asset transfers) to the canvas. For more information, you can refer to the Add Addresses/Transactions section.

Add Memo allows users to add text annotations on the canvas. It enables users to provide additional context, notes, or explanations related to specific addresses & transactions on the canvas. For more information on how to use this feature, please refer to the Memo section.

Custom Watermark allows users to add their own branding or identification to their analysis results. It enables users to customize the watermark displayed on the canvas, adding their logo, name, or any other desired information. For more information on how to use this feature, please refer to the Custom Watermark section.

Search in Canvas allows users to perform searches within the canvas content based on criteria such as blockchain, address, transaction, label, or edge number. It enables users to quickly locate specific elements or connections within the visualization. By entering relevant keywords or criteria in the search bar, users can filter and focus on specific information of interest within the canvas.

Layout adjustment toolbar

Tracking and analyzing on-chain assets often revolve around fund flows, making the layout of the canvas crucial. It not only affects the efficiency of analysis but also impacts the presentation of the analysis results. MetaSleuth has specifically provided a layout adjustment toolbar, which offers the following functionalities:

Appearance editing toolbox

The Appearance Editing Toolbox provides the functionality to edit the appearance of nodes, edges, and memos. When you open a canvas, it will initially display a node shape editor by default. You can minimize it into a canvas chart and freely drag it around, allowing yourself more space for analysis.

Clicking on an address node will open the shape editor related to that node, allowing you to edit its shape, text color, and node color.

You can perform batch editing on addresses by holding down Shift/Ctrl (Command) and clicking on nodes to select multiple ones.

Additionally, you can select any edge on the canvas to edit it, adjusting the line type, width, and color.

By selecting a memo, you can edit the font size, color, formatting, and background color of its text.

Address Panel

When you click on an address node, an address panel will expand from the left side of the canvas. In this panel, you can see the following information:

Name Tag: If an address has a public name tag supported by BlockSec or a private name tag assigned by a user, it will be displayed. For example, the "Poloniex Exchange Exploiter" in the image below.

Compliance Risk Score: The compliance risk of an address is evaluated based on the tag information associated with the address and its interaction with other addresses. It is assessed on a scale of five levels: No Risk, Low Risk, Medium Risk, High Risk, and Critical Risk.

Address Labels: The labels associated with an address are provided by the BlockSec AML team. For example, in the given example, the address carries the label "Attacker." Other common labels include CEX, DEX, Sanctioned, Compromised, and more. These labels are used to identify specific characteristics or risk factors associated with the address, aiding in compliance and risk assessment.

Balance: The balance of the native token held by the current address on the blockchain, along with its corresponding value in US dollars.

Related Address: These are the addresses that have interacted with the target address, compiled based on the acquired transaction data. In addition to the addresses themselves, you can also view the risk score of each address, the direction of fund flow, and the types of assets involved in the flow.

Transfers: These are all the fund transfers related to the target address that have been obtained.

Load More: This feature allows users to request more transactions for the current address. For detailed instructions on how to access additional transaction data using this feature, please refer to the "Load More Data" section.

Address Panel Filter: When there is a large amount of interaction in an address, a filtering tool may be needed to narrow down the scope of the investigation.

Edge List Panel

When clicking on any edge on the canvas, an edge list panel will expand.

In this panel, you can view all asset transfers between two addresses (based on the currently available data). Each edge is uniquely identified by (from, to, asset). To view specific transfer data, you need to click on "Detail" to enter the Transaction List Panel. For example, clicking on (Poloniex 4, Poloniex Exchange Exploiter, Ether) in the above example would allow you to view all transaction details on the canvas involving the transfer of Ether from Poloniex 4 to Poloniex Exchange Exploiter, as shown below.

InterChain Tracker Panel

As mentioned earlier, there can be two types of nodes on the canvas: regular address nodes and virtual bridge nodes. When there is an edge between two nodes, it indicates the possibility of cross-chain asset transfers. In such cases, clicking on the edge will trigger the display of an InterChain Tracker Panel.

From the panel, you can view known cross-chain asset transfers, which could be sending assets to the bridge or receiving assets from the bridge. How to find out the transactions on the other side? Which chain and address are involved in sending/receiving? Users can click on "Track" to utilize MetaSleuth's built-in automatic cross-chain tracking feature.

After a successful analysis, you can view the cross-chain asset transfers on the other side in the panel, and they will be automatically displayed on the canvas by default.

Account Management & User Data

By accessing the top right corner of any page on MetaSleuth, users can enter the Account Management and User Data dashboard.

Upon accessing the user account, you can see five modules.

  • Subscription: The user's current subscription plan, usage data for various features, and billing information.

    • Users can click on 'Manage Billing' to access the interface for managing their subscriptions and billing information. Any changes made to the billing information will be applied to all invoices and receipts (including historical ones) associated with the current account.

  • Preference: Custom watermark settings, chart settings (such as display currency format, automatic hiding of suspicious token transfers).

  • Private Labels: Private labels added to addresses or transactions. Users can manage them here, including bulk operations.

  • Saved Charts: All the charts saved by the user. Users can search for charts based on titles, associated addresses or transactions, and perform batch management operations.

  • Shared Links: All the charts shared by the user. Users can search for shared charts, modify their validity, and perform other common management operations in this section.
