Message from Ganesh

Covalent Network

On May 4th, Covalent announced its pledge to contribute $25 million in a public sale round for data verifiability in Web3 and bringing staking to the Covalent Network. Since then, the staking parameters have increased every two weeks to ensure operators have the safest staking security with open-access to all token holders. By today, the MaxCap multiplier’s ratio will have increased from 6:1 to 12:1, our biggest increase yet. This means that the maximum a Network Operator can accept in delegations is 2,100,000 CQT, and the circulating supply staked will go from 4.9% to 9%.

Partnerships

Covalent Integrates with Evmos

On May 30th, Covalent announced its integration with Evmos, a scalable, high-throughput Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchain that is fully compatible and interoperable with Ethereum.
