Posted by admin on December 13, 2022
Gather Partners with Covalent, Bringing Data Accessibility to the Platform
Covalent, the leading provider of indexing solutions for blockchains with their Unified API, has integrated with Gather 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 Gather data stack for redundancy and validator incentives
+ Ability for developers to build their own endpoints in the chain
+ Covalent’s analyst mode which will allow developers to write SQL to build bespoke dashboards
+ Specialized support for Gather
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
Gather is building a new blockchain protocol where publishers will be incentivized to run nodes for true decentralization and earn more via their visitors, while developers can create dApps thanks to low fees and fast transactions. Gather Online is the first decentralized application (dApp) released by Gather that allows websites and apps to monetize without or in addition to ads. Many website visitors provide a small percentage of processing power and this is how the Gather blockchain is secured.
About the partnership, Raghav Reggie Jerath said:
“We are very excited to be working with Covalent as it enables dApps to onboard onto our chain very easily due to the existing tooling and we are excited to see the new dApps come into the ecosystem via Covalent’s network. Looking forward to the future working together with Covalent.”
Developers can pull Gather 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
Ganesh Swami, CEO & Co-founder, Covalent added “We’re excited to join forces with the Gather team to provide Web3 builders with a world-class infrastructure. The collaboration will help the network get granularity of the data. In addition, builders will be able to develop and scale dApps.”
This seamless experience significantly enhances the Gather developer experience.

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.
Gather has developed a powerful new technology that allows web and mobile developers to earn money by contributing processing power, unlike any other digital monetization tool available today. Imagine an Internet where web and application developers can generate revenue without having to rely on intrusive Ads. A new revenue stream without ads, and one that is reliable and rewarding. The processing power gathered will then be redistributed, providing a cheaper alternative to current Cloud markets products. Gather is unlocking a new business model for the internet by allowing publishers to monetize without ads and by providing businesses & developers access to affordable and reliable processing power.
