Covalent has reported a significant growth in its token buyback program, buying +$100,000 worth of CQT from the open market since the launch in late January 2024. The mechanism utilizes revenue generated from Covalent’s API usage to purchase tokens, significantly enhancing the utility and value of the CQT token while fostering a sustainable ecosystem. Tokens accumulated through Covalent’s revenue mechanism will be awarded to network operators, effectively meeting the evolving demands of Web3 and fostering growth across innovative areas such as AI, DeFi, analytics, and governance.

Bringing Revenue Onchain to Support Long-Term Data Availability

The growth of Covalent’s onchain revenue mechanism plays a crucial role in reinforcing verifiable operations for the Ethereum ecosystem with a network of operators. Operators initially stake CQT and contribute data infrastructure, which ensures secure, historical, and verifiable access to blockchain data. This not only supports the network’s growth—but also underscores Covalent’s commitment to enhancing the infrastructure for the Ethereum Wayback Machine (EWM).

Covalent’s Onchain Revenue Mechanism

Network operators within the Covalent ecosystem play a critical role by performing cryptographic computations to establish a reliable and verifiable repository of historical blockchain data. Their contributions extend beyond data integrity to include testing, governance, and efforts to enhance the network’s reliability and scalability. With the goal of continuously bringing consistent offchain revenue onchain, Covalent is primed to utilize this mechanism to support the ongoing functionality of the CQT token in staking and governance.

During this initial phase, Covalent has witnessed over $100,000 worth of CQT being brought onchain. With steady growth in business revenue expected over the coming months, Covalent is projected to hit $180,000 worth of CQT through the token buyback program by the end of Q2– which will be distributed to operators as a network utility token, circulating back into the ecosystem and sustaining the network.

The introduction of the onchain revenue mechanism through token buybacks has a twofold impact on Covalent’s ecosystem. It strengthens the financial foundation of the network, enhancing its ability to fund operations and expand services without relying solely on external funding sources. Furthermore, this revenue mechanism enhances the intrinsic utility of the CQT token, aligning stakeholders’ interests with the long-term health and success of the network.

Looking Ahead: Sustainable Growth and Network Expansion

As Covalent prepares for the rollout of significant advancements, including the introduction of Olympic Light Client Operators later this year, its sustainable revenue model will be vital in supporting these innovations. With the network currently serving over 280 million wallets, this revenue mechanism is a major part in ensuring that Covalent remains dedicated to its core principles of decentralization and transparency, paving the way for continued utility of the EWM and Covalent’s long-term data availability.
