VANCOUVER, March 25th, 2021 - Covalent is delighted to announce a technical partnership with Edgeware, a platform for the next generation of decentralized applications.
Edgeware is a smart contract platform and a primary parachain candidate for Polkadot and Kusama networks. Designed specifically for the development of DApps, Edgeware intends to use various components of Polkadot’s underlying framework that supports Edgeware’s more functional components.
Currently, Edgeware operates as a standalone, EVM-compatible blockchain network. Edgeware features a nominated Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism, an on-chain governance system, and a native token, EDG, that owners can use to pay transaction fees, vote on upgrade proposals, and participate in consensus. Furthermore, Edgeware is 100% community-owned and managed.
Through this partnership, users willl soon be able to query Edgeware blockchain data by simply changing the chainId parameter in the Covalent API. This seamless experience significantly enhances the Edgeware developer experience. The Edgeware blockchain data available via the Covalent API will be extensive covering:
- Token balances per address
- Historical transactions per address
- Historical prices by address and ticker symbol
- Decoded log events

Edgeware is a community-owned, fairly distributed, self-sustainable blockchain ecosystem built on Substrate with on-chain governance and a collectively managed treasury, enabling users to fund the chain’s development and teams to build projects.
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.
