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
