TL;DR:

  • The Nomad Hack Incident Response is live for Covalent's CQT community, outlining our efforts and plan moving forward.
  • Covalent indexes Godwoken, Aurora, Evmos, Astar, and Cronos, enabling developers building with Covalent to now have access to billions of rows of on-chain data from over 42 different blockchains - the indexer with the most broad blockchain data coverage in Web3.
  • No bear market for builders! Read about the projects building with Covalent's Unified API and their success stories.

1. Nomad Hack Incident Response

On August 1st, the Nomad bridge was exploited and over $190M in various assets were withdrawn to the Ethereum network. These assets included 113.55M (11.3%) of the total Covalent Network ($CQT) supply on the Ethereum network contributed from 255 unique wallet addresses. Despite the CQT setback, we’ve been open and transparent with the community and everything we're doing moving forward, which you can read about in The Nomad Hack Incident: Covalent's Response

2. Covalent Traction

Two years ago, Ethereum was the undisputed dominant player in the space. This quarter, using Covalent data, we're seeing blockchain traction move from single-player mode to multi-player, as the new Alt 1 blockchains are facing off as contenders to the L1 blockchains.
