Aurora is partnering with Covalent to bring data accessibility to the network



Covalent, the leading provider of indexing solutions for blockchains with their Unified API, has integrated with Aurora mainnet. This integration provides developers with reliable, high-quality data that will allow them to build faster and easier. A multichain can be enabled in minutes by simply changing the chain ID parameter.

Other initiatives at later stages will include:
  • Decentralizing the Aurora data stack for redundancy and validator incentives
  • The ability for developers to build their own endpoints in the chain
  • Covalent’s analyst mode will allow developers to write SQL to build bespoke dashboards

Out of the box, Covalent brings full transparency and visibility to assets across over 32 blockchain networks and is trusted by over 27,000 developers. Its dataset supports 25B+ transactions, 30,000+ price feeds, and 200,000+ smart contracts for querying. Covalent believes strongly in a future where users have access to composable, verifiable, permissionless, and trustless data.

Covalent brings value to blockchains in various ways
Developers can pull Aurora mainnet data with Covalent’s Unified API. The blockchain data available includes:
  • Token balances per address
  • Get NFT transactions for contract
  • Historical transactions per address
  • Get all contract metadata

We can’t wait to see all the applications that can be built with access to trustless, permissionless verifiable data. Most applications are as of yet unknown and I hope these apps are built on Aurora with the Unified API.” — Ganesh Swami, CEO, and co-founder at Covalent

This seamless integration significantly enhances the Aurora developer experience.

Developer Docs
Aurora and Covalent have been working hard to provide their beloved developers with useful docs. You can find the information you need 👉here.

About Covalent
Covalent provides the industry-leading Unified API bringing visibility to billions of Web3 data points. Developers use Covalent to build exciting multi-chain applications like crypto wallets, NFT galleries, and investor dashboard tools utilizing data from 26+ blockchains. Covalent is trusted by a community of 15,000+ developers and powers data for 500+ applications including 0x, Zerion, Rainbow Wallet, Rotki, Bitski, and many others.

About Aurora Network
Aurora is an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) implemented as a smart contract on NEAR Protocol. Aurora is a solution, that allows developers to execute Ethereum contracts in a more performant environment: The NEAR blockchain. NEAR is a modern layer-1 blockchain that is fast with a 2-3 second transaction finalization time, scalable, and carbon neutral.

Aurora supports all tools available in the Ethereum ecosystem — MetaMask, Truffle, Hardhat, Remix, etc. Additionally, NEAR’s trustless bridge to Ethereum means even the assets on Aurora are the same as Ethereum.
