Quotes from the episode:

“If you want to get a balance of every ERC20 token in your wallet, that is not a question that The Graph can ever answer. But Covalent can answer that in 300 milliseconds.” [00:12:43]

“And so I would say Ethereum is kind of like the Jack of all trades, but it's not the best probably at every single use case, but it can definitely build a specialized blockchain for a specific use case and carve out your niche.” [00:23:44]

“We do have a token. We will be announcing a lot of that stuff soon, but I would say the big milestones for Covalent this year would be our public sale, which is sometime in Q2." [00:30:20]
