The Datatoken page will give you informations like the total supply, the number of holders and the contract address so you can add it to your Metamask as a custom token.
There is also a token holders chart where you can see the distribution of the tokens by address.

You can gather information like how many shares of the pool the Creator has, and how many Datatokens are in the pool compared to the total number that was minted.

The pool statistic graph will give you of general idea of the trend. You can also switch to the price graph, which will show the Datatoken price trend.

The Trade tab

Should be used if you wish to swap between Ocean Tokens and Datatokens. This means you won’t be a liquidity provider, but you will still pay for swap fees that will be distributed between LPs. Clicking on the pink arrow will flip the direction of the trade. If for example, you have Datatokens in your wallet and you wish to exchange them for Ocean. Swap fees varies between pools. The expected price impact can be adjusted if you wish to bypass the default 5% slippage.
