VANCOUVER, February 25th, 2021 - Covalent is delighted to announce a technical partnership with ChainGuardians, a player-driven platform that combines traditional gaming concepts with blockchain technologies. Within the ChainGuardians ecosystem, players can participate in ChainGuardians free-to-play NFT mining platform and role-playing game; both of which allow players to earn income, turning their time and energy into tangible rewards.
With the popularity of NFTs continuing to grow, so too has Covalent’s NFT querying capabilities. Using the Covalent API, ChainGuardians will now be capable of displaying NFT statistics such as the price appreciation or depreciation of a guardian for instance along with the number of times an NFT has changed hands, and wallets it has passed through. However, the technicalities of this partnership go beyond just analytics.
A novel feature of ChainGuardians is its NFT proof-of-stake mining platform where a user can put their NFT to work to yield income. Covalent data will be used in this process as a means of asset recognition given that the database is more thorough and expeditious than other APIs, allowing for a more seamless user experience for miners. Furthermore, the Covalent API will be used to pull new collections as they are added. A fast refresh rate is important here given that ChainGuardians needs to dynamically compute the hashrate. While ChainGuardians has previously run their own node to do so , this approach does not scale across multiple chains. Covalent, however, does scale across multiple chains drastically reducing load for ChainGuardians.
