We caught up with Emma Liu, Co-founder / CEO at ChainGuardians, to see how they are using Covalent’s API to help with the development of a blockchain-based gaming platform. Here is what they had to say about Covalent’s API.
Q: Can you explain ChainGuardians?
ChainGuardians is essentially a blockchain meets superheroes gaming ecosystem. Our underlying aim is to combine traditional gaming concepts with blockchain technologies in order to drive the adoption of the technology. As well as boasting the world’s first NFT proof-of-stake (PoS) mining platform and interoperable RPG, ChainGuardians also merges awe-inspiring artwork with imaginative storytelling. We want to create the most immersive cross-chain gaming experience.
Q: What use case(s) does the Covalent API help you solve?
The NFT PoS mining platform is a novel feature of ChainGuardians where users can put their NFT to work in order to yield income.

New collections being card sets that ChainGuardians release.

Q: What end points are you using?
Mostly Class A end points as well as multi-chain functionality, but more specifically:

Q: In your own words how do you feel Covalent is helping power your project?

Covalent leverages big-data technologies to create meaning from hundreds of billions of data points, delivering actionable insights to investors and allowing developers to allocate resources to higher-utility goals within their organization. Instead of pain-stakingly sourcing data from a small handful of chains, Covalent aggregates information from across dozens of sources including nodes, chains and data feeds. The Covalent API then sources end users with individualized data by wallet, including current and historical investment performance across all types of digital assets. Most importantly, Covalent returns this data in a rapid and consistent manner, incorporating all relevant data within one API interface.
