What problem are we solving?

When people ask, “What is blockchain,” they are really asking “why do I need to care about it and how does it matter?” Not an easy question to answer today and that's inhibiting blockchain adoption.

No matter how successful or well-positioned your company is today, technology moves fast, and disruption sneaks up on even the most powerful companies and business leaders.

Blockchain is emerging as the next technology frontier. Your competitors are staffing up with blockchain experts. Are you going to ignore blockchain technology until it's too late?

Blockchain today is like Netflix in 1998. Don’t be Blockbuster.

We publish in-depth, data-backed research on various industries that are being disrupted with blockchain technology.

How do we do it?

Covalent is the perfect trifecta of data, talent, and algorithms. They reinforce each other through feedback loops in a virtuous circle.

  1. Data – billions of blockchain transactions that is the combination of on-chain data with off-chain data from a variety of data sources.
  2. Talent – our team of data scientists and financial analysts pore through billions of blockchain transactions, millions of chat messages and thousands of whitepapers to figure out what's important and what is just noise.
  3. Algorithms – our suite of models that sift through the mountains of data and surfaces insights. As our reports are written in plain English, we've had to come up with a set of metrics that is intuitive for the layperson.

How hard can it be?

90% of what we do is hidden behind the scenes. Building and managing scrapers, scaling them, keeping up with protocol changes, natural language processing + synthesizing whitepapers, analyzing utility data, and more.
