Shiden Network

Introduction

The Shiden Network is a scalable and interoperable infrastructure for Web3.0. Since the Shiden Network is built with Parity’s Substrate framework, it can be a future Kusama parachain that also acts as a scalable smart contract platform. The Kusama Relaychain, by design, does not support smart contracts. This allows the Shiden Network the opportunity to fill in this gap. Scalability is obviously one of the most crucial demands dApp developers have. Ideally, the developers can build whatever applications on the Shiden Network without having to consider its scalability.

The Shiden Network is built on the Kusama parent chain.

Supported endpoints

Get token balances for address
Class A
Given chain_id and wallet address, return current token balances along with their spot prices. This endpoint supports a variety of token standards like ERC20, ERC721 and ERC1155. As a special case, network native tokens like ETH on Ethereum are also returned even though it’s not a token contract.
GET /v1/:chain_id/address/:address/balances_v2/
Get transactions for address
Class A
Given chain_id and wallet address, return all transactions along with their decoded log events. This endpoint does a deep-crawl of the blockchain to retrieve all kinds of transactions that references the address including indexed topics within the event logs.
GET /v1/:chain_id/address/:address/transactions_v2/
Get ERC20 token transfers for address
Class A
Given chain_id, wallet address and contract-address, return all ERC20 token contract transfers along with their historical prices at the time of their transfer.
GET /v1/:chain_id/address/:address/transfers_v2/
Get token holders as of any block height
Class A
Given chain_id and wallet address, return a paginated list of token holders. If block-height is omitted, the latest block is used.
GET /v1/:chain_id/tokens/:address/token_holders/
Get log events by contract address
Class A
Given chain_id and contract address, return a paginated list of decoded log events emitted by a particular smart contract.
GET /v1/:chain_id/events/address/:address/
Get log events by topic hash(es)
Class A
Given chain_id and topic hash(es), return a paginated list of decoded log events with one or more topic hashes separated by a comma.
GET /v1/:chain_id/events/topics/:topic/

Appendix

Shiden token

The Shiden token SDN is the native token of the Shiden Network. This is similar to Ether in Ethereum. To interact with the Shiden Network, SDN tokens are required to pay gas fees. The Covalent API response returns gas_* fields in fiat units.
