The Shiden Network is a scalable and interoperable infrastructure for Web3.0. Since the Shiden Network is built with Parity’s Substrate framework, it can be a future Kusama parachain that also acts as a scalable smart contract platform. The Kusama Relaychain, by design, does not support smart contracts. This allows the Shiden Network the opportunity to fill in this gap. Scalability is obviously one of the most crucial demands dApp developers have. Ideally, the developers can build whatever applications on the Shiden Network without having to consider its scalability.
The Shiden Network is built on the Kusama parent chain.

address, return current token balances along with their spot prices. This endpoint supports a variety of token standards like ERC20, ERC721 and ERC1155. As a special case, network native tokens like ETH on Ethereum are also returned even though it’s not a token contract.
address, return all transactions along with their decoded log events. This endpoint does a deep-crawl of the blockchain to retrieve all kinds of transactions that references the
addressincluding indexed topics within the event logs.
The Shiden token
SDN is the native token of the Shiden Network. This is similar to Ether in Ethereum. To interact with the Shiden Network,
SDN tokens are required to pay gas fees. The Covalent API response returns
gas_* fields in fiat units.
