Covalent integrates SKALE’s multichain data in an industry first
As transaction count skyrocket past 30 Million, SKALE is establishing itself as the multichain solution of choice for Dapps that need high transaction volumes with zero gas fees. Because that happens across nearly 20 independent and interoperable chains (and growing), SKALE is positioned as one of the only ethereum blockchain scaling solutions successfully operating with live Dapps. It also creates an enormous dataset of information that can be utilized by developers to power unique experiences across the Web3 ecosystem. For that reason, we’re incredibly excited to announce that Covalent, the leading provider of indexing solutions for blockchains, has made a first of its kind multichain integration with SKALE mainnet.
As part of the announcement, Covalent has integrated with multiple SKALE chains, offering anyone leveraging the Covalent API access to data from the SKALE ecosystem which includes numerous blockchains and hubs. The partnership furthers Covalent's mission to increase universal blockchain data availability across various blockchains, and with a growing number of SKALE chains as their numbers increase.
This is precisely the kind of data that will empower developers to create new and innovative products and features, and is incredibly exciting for the SKALE ecosystem. Additionally, this integration will enable availability of SKALE data across the major indexing platforms such as Dappradar, DeFi Llama and more. Keep an eye out for SKALE indexing on Dappradar in the future. This sustainable architecture is enabling a new class of applications like Exorde’s decentralized mechanism for crawling and validating information on the web, that’s being used to create a global prediction market and crowd intelligence platform.
Covalent's data collection process ensures all data is analyzed from the genesis block to 2 blocks behind the present moment, yielding impressive depth and minimal latency across 60+ blockchains. Out of the box Covalent brings full transparency and visibility to assets across over 60 blockchain networks and is trusted by over 40,000 developers. Its dataset supports 25B+ transactions, 30,000+ price feeds, and 200,000+ smart contracts for querying. Now, SKALE’s multiple blockchains will be added, and will grow over time as SKALE grows. Covalent believes strongly in a future where users have access to composable, verifiable, permissionless, and trustless data.
Developers can pull SKALE mainnet data with Covalent’s Unified API including information such as:
- Token balances per address
- NFT transactions for contract
- Historical transactions per address
- Get all contract metadata
“Partnering with an Ethereum appchain network of SKALE’s caliber is a milestone for Covalent as we solidify our protocol as the leading data provider of ecosystem-specific blockchains. Very few data providers offer full visibility into this rapidly growing sector, and we’re pleased to do so for our developers in an easily understood, actionable, and no-cost manner. We have much more in store with SKALE and are looking forward to furthering collaborations in 2023 to provide builders access to even more granular and historic appchain data.” says Ganesh Swami, Covalent CEO.
Covalent provides the industry-leading Unified API bringing visibility to billions of Web3 data points. Developers use Covalent to build exciting multi-chain applications like crypto wallets, NFT galleries, and investor dashboard tools utilizing data from 60+ blockchains. Covalent is trusted by a community of 40,000+ developers and powers data for 3000+ applications including 0x, Zerion, Rainbow Wallet, Rotki, Bitski and many others.
