Covalent Partners with AllianceBlock to Deliver Digital Asset Data to Decentralized Capital Markets

VANCOUVER, November 18th, 2020 - Covalent is delighted to be integrating with AllianceBlock, a decentralized, blockchain-agnostic layer 2 that bridges traditional and decentralized finance and automates the process of converting any digital or crypto asset into a bankable product.

Covalent and AllianceBlock will provide mutual support for one another. Not only will AllianceBlock be providing Covalent access to financial data that will come from its protocol and ecosystem, but Covalent will serve as one of the preferred data partners. As a result, any application that wants to plug into the AllianceBlock Protocol and needs blockchain data will be using Covalent. This presents a significant opportunity given the ecosystem AllianceBlock is building in the mission to bridge the gap between TradFi and DeFi.

The AllianceBlock Protocol will be comprised of three distinct layers to facilitate multidirectional dynamic data flow in a traceable, accountable, and regulated manner compliant with global, national, and local jurisdictions. Digital asset data will, of course, flow throughout and Covalent will be the primary provider through its enterprise-grade API. This will significantly enhance AllianceBlocks platform through the following features:

  • AllianceBlock will have access to Covalent’s API which will be leveraged to build products such as regulated digitized derivatives and investment terminals.

  • Parties coming from traditional finance into the decentralized finance world will have access to granular, historical data that will provide insight into the various aspects of this new domain.

  • Traders will be able to export their trading data with full historical context which will allow benchmarking of investor performance and record-keeping as evidence for tax purposes.

  • As part of both the ‘eligibility, assessment and admission’ aspect for issuers and ‘digital identity’ aspect for traders, Covalent will act as an additional data source that will validate the actions of wallets to ensure they are not used for illegal purposes, like money laundering, or any other suspicious activities.

Quote from Ganesh, Covalent's CEO

AllianceBlock is making significant strides toward bridging traditional and decentralized finance by identifying and overcoming the numerous hurdles that have previously prevented this - the lack of access to digital asset data being one. However, through this partnership, AllianceBlock users will have access to historical and granular blockchain data that will not only inform decision making but be leveraged to build financial instruments. Covalent is more than delighted to be the primary data provider of choice in helping AllianceBlock fulfill its mission.

Quote from Rachid, AllianceBlock CEO

The partnership between AllianceBlock and Covalent marks another step forward in our journey to developing a comprehensive bridge between the worlds of traditional and decentralized finance. Demand amongst traditional and institutional investors for decentralized products is increasing significantly, though to date, the technology to bridge these two worlds has been lacking. We are proud to be pioneering this field and our partnership with Covalent will make this endeavor undoubtedly more successful and fruitful for the ecosystem.
