Help and Resources

Make sure to join the Moralis Discord server and head to this week’s project channel.

There you can meet your fellow builders, and get help from our Moralis Tech Support Wizards if you need it. 

We recommend setting up notifications in the #projects-notifications channel too. 

The Moralis Forums have a dedicated thread for this week’s project, where you can find additional discussions and solutions from the community. 

You can also take the latest Moralis Project courses at Moralis Academy 100% FREE. All previous Moralis Project courses are available there as well.  

Improving Moralis Projects

Moralis Projects are designed to be an exciting, practical way to get you started on your Web3 development journey. They’re also perfect for showing “proof of knowledge” as part of your Web3 portfolio.

If you have suggestions on how we can improve these projects, we want to hear them! 

The same goes for mistakes. If you spot anything wrong in any Moralis Project, please share it with us and the community. Bonus mage points if you suggest merge requests. 

Earning Your Whale Watcher NFT and Next Steps

Once you’ve completed your project, make sure to submit it in the #🏆finished-projects channel in the Moralis Discord to claim your NFT (and feel free to brag about it on socials – you’ve earned it!). 

Moralis Projects are just the start. Think of them as a launch pad – something you can develop further or use as inspiration for your own builds. 

Whatever you’re creating, we love to see it!

Make sure to share anything you’re working on outside of Moralis Projects with the community in the #😎builtwithmoralis Discord channel.

Now, on to this week’s project!

NFT Whale Watcher – Getting Started

In this exciting project, you’ll learn to leverage Moralis to accomplish some on-chain analysis. We’ll be delving into wallets that hold large amounts of top NFT collections like BAYC, Moonbirds, and Azuki.

First, we’ll cover how to effectively use the Moralis Web3 API and write Node JS scripts, then top it off by building a beautiful React application to present your findings.

The starter code required for this week’s build can be cloned from the following GitHub Repository. Make sure to navigate into a folder where you would like to save the project, and type the following commands in the terminal.

git clone:

cd NFTWHALE-Starter

In the repository, you should find four folders (app, server, cf & stats) which you’ll work in during different phases of the tutorial.

Happy building!
