After six months of incubation, Mnemonic announced the upcoming launch of its non-fungible token (NFT) analysis platform, which aims to promote API and cross-chain aggregation functions, enabling developers to build NFT-centric applications.

Yasinetsky pointed out the differences between the Mnemonic platform and other multi-sector competitors (such as Nansen):
