NFT stands for non-fungible token. Some counter examples include bitcoin and banknotes. There are huge amounts of NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain. 

NFT is one of the hottest topics in the web3 area. Do you want to know how many NFT trades are there everyday? How much Ethereum currency is traded? And what are the top 50 popular collections? Can you build a dashboard on those insights over a weekend and start to use it on Monday?

In this meetup, Xiang Li will introduce you to Retool. Retool enables users to build internal tools remarkably fast. It provides rich UI tools, data source integration, and access control tuning. Chenhao will show you an NFT Insight dashboard built using Retool and backed by TiDB and Aurora. He will also compare the performance between TiDB and Aurora themselves. Kolbe will explore the reasons behind the performance difference of two databases.
