Covalent Joins Gitcoin Schelling Point Virtual Hackathon

Covalent joins the Gitcoin Schelling Point Virtual Hackathon to advance Web3 development with their one unified API.

Covalent is excited to officially join the Gitcoin Schelling Point Virtual Hackathon and support this community building the Web3 future. The hackathon, which runs from January 20th to February 10th 2022, is a celebration of:

  • Public Goods
  • Mechanism Design
  • Coordination
  • Culture
  • Regen Finance

As many of you might know, Covalent itself was born at a hackathon a few years ago; we’ve moved a long way from participating at hackathons to supporting them.

We at Covalent believe that access to organized blockchain data can unlock one billion possibilities and so we provide the world's best single unified API to bring full transparency and visibility to assets across all blockchain networks. With the Covalent API, there is no need to invest developer resources in writing sub-graphs or SQL queries since granular, decoded, multi-chain data is immediately available for a dozen blockchain networks including Ethereum, BSC, Polygon, Fantom and Avalanche. Covalent is fast becoming the go-to data provider, with the Covalent API powering over 500 industry-leading projects such as Zerion, ChainGuardians, 0x and Reef.

The Covalent Unified API is the fastest way to get blockchain data into your Schelling Point Hackathon projects. Use it and be immediately eligible for our prize pool!

We’re really excited to be supporting Gitcoin’s Schelling Point Virtual Hackathon. The ethos of this event, which is to build a world where the interests are aligned with the many instead of the few, embodies our values around public goods. We hope that the 100k+ developers on Gitcoin can see the value in using our API to build the infrastructure for a more equitable and transparent world.
