We at Covalent believe that access to organized blockchain data can unlock a billion possibilities and so we provide the 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 SQL or other queries since granular, decoded, multi-chain data is immediately available for 30+ blockchain networks including Ethereum, BSC, Polygon, Fantom and Avalanche. Covalent is fast becoming the go-to data provider, with the Covalent API powering over 1,000 industry-leading projects such as Zerion, ChainGuardians, 0x and Reef.

The Covalent Unified API is the fastest way to get blockchain data for your HackFS 2022 Hackathon project!


Covalent is offering:

🏊‍♀️ $5,000 USD (in stablecoin) prize pool for all projects that make meaningful use of any Covalent API endpoints for their HackFS 2022 BUIDLs.

The prize pool includes a top prize of $1,500 and a minimum prize of $300 to qualifying projects at Covalent’s discretion. (The minimum prize might be adjusted depending on the number of submissions.) To qualify, projects must, at the very least, use one Covalent API endpoint and pull on-chain data from any supported blockchain into your application.

Projects that are multi-chain and make use of our NFT-specific and Event-specific endpoints will be given special attention.

Our API is ideal for building multi-chain projects related to:

  • NFT storefronts / marketplaces / galleries
  • On-Chain Analytics / Dashboards
  • Wallets
  • Asset tracking, ROI, cost basis and tax calculators

For ideas and examples of past hackathon projects, please see our:

  • Events blog
  • Use cases outlining how to build popular Web3 projects like OpenSea, Zapper and Uniswap


Projects will be scored on a 1-5 scale for each of the following key factors:

  • Originality, creativity, and feasibility of your project (do you provide a good solution to a real problem?)
  • The specific Covalent API endpoints used
  • User experience (good front-end design and data presentation)
  • Technical competence (well organized and written code)
