The CATV tool requires users to input data into multiple fields before you could start tracking the transactions linked to a wallet address. What you should enter in these fields will be elaborated below.
1. Cryptocurrency: Select the type of cryptocurrency you want to track. Currently CATV supports 13 different cryptocurrencies. (Ethereal/ERC-20, Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ripple, Tron, Bitcoin Cash, EOS, Cardano, Binance Smart Chain, Klaytn, Stellar, Binance Coin, LUNC*)
2. Source Address: Enter (or copy and paste) the address of the cryptocurrency wallet you want to track.
3. Token Contract: This field generates results for CATV with transactions involving only the token in question. The crypto transactions would not be visible in the graph nor will they be shown in the transaction list. If users only wish to see crypto transactions, then this field should be left blank. (Token transactions supported are: ERC-20, TRX-10, BSC and Klay tokens)
4. Date Range: This filters the transactions only in the first hop for both distribution and source. Hence, the initial outgoing and incoming hops will only display transactions made during the specified time period in the graph.
5. Source Depth: This specifies how far would you like to trace the funds received by the wallet address. For example, a source depth of three will cause the graph to display the incoming transactions, starting with the input wallet address, up to three hops away The maximum source depth is ten.
6. Distribution Depth: This specifies how far would you like to trace the funds sent out by the wallet address. For example, a distribution depth of three will cause the graph to display the outgoing transactions, starting with the input wallet address, up to three hops away. The maximum distribution depth is ten.
For example, if you are to search the input address “0x9b14Dd998023A024Fdd69249a8D961a66844105f” with a distribution and source depth of one, you would get the graph as seen above.
However, if you are to tweak the distribution and source depth to two, you would see this graph instead.
7. Download Sample CSV: Upon clicking Download Sample CSV, a file will download that will provide the format for bulk upload of addresses for tracking using a csv file.
8. Upload CSV file: Using the sample csv file, fill it with the addresses that are to be tracked using CATV. Upon clicking Upload CSV, a dialogue box will appear to help choose the file for the bulk upload.
9. Reset: To remove all the data from the input list, click on Reset.
In order to obtain the ideal results, these tips are advisable before you click the “Start Tracking” button:
Please try to keep your depths to 5 and below if possible. While the maximum limit is 10, under 5 and below is recommended for better speed and a graph output that is readable.
For wallet addresses that are highly active, use the Date Range filter to narrow the search down to only the day(s) of interest.
If you are experiencing slow loading time, you can consider doing source and depth search separately by setting either to zero. This might be caused by the type of wallet. For example, splitter wallets would have a few incoming transactions and many outgoing transactions.
Once you’re done with setting the fields to your desired values and ready to start tracking, simply click on the ‘Start Tracking’ button to have the tool begin generating the graph.
Upon clicking Start Tracking, a dialogue box with confirmation will appear on the screen. Acknowledging it will display the submitted address under the Submission List.
1. Submission List: You can check the search history and wallet addresses that are currently being tracked.
2. Status: There are 3 status available:
a. In-progress: The status of tracking in progress
b. Released: The status when the tracking has been completed
c. Failed: The status when the tracking has failed
3. Export Source CSV: You can click on the checkboxes next to the individual/selected reports or check on the box here to select all the reports. This is to enable to download all the source transactions list in a single file.
4. Export Dist CSV: You can click on the checkboxes next to the individual/selected reports or check on the box here to select all the reports. This is to enable to download all the distribution transactions list in a single file.
5. Copy and Label: The first icon (with 2 overlapping boxes) are used to copy wallet address submitted for tracking. and the pencil icon is to allow users to label the addresses for their reference.
6. Filter: This allows users to use the filtering option to look for the addresses or the labels assigned to the addresses.
