Wash Trade Filter

  1. What is wash trading
  • In general, wash trading is defined as a trader providing misleading information to the market by buying or selling NFTs for profit and/or for other purposes (such as to mine activity rewards offered by platforms that encourage platform activities).
  • Under wash trading, many metrics such as historical price and volume can be manipulated, which will not only affect the user's judgment of the market data and trends but also affect the construction and application of NFT financialization and valuation models.
