The Graph’s adoption of scaling technology will enable millions of users to interact with decentralized service providers for access to compute and connectivity.
SAN FRANCISCO, OCTOBER 9, 2020 — Today, The Graph announced that they are bringing generalized state channels to Ethereum mainnet, through a collaboration with State Channels in the Consensys Mesh R&D group and Connext. In order to enable granular micropayments for metered usage of blockchain infrastructure, The Graph adopted State Channel’s Nitro protocol and server wallet implementation.
State channels are a scaling technology solution that Ethereum developers have explored since the blockchain first launched in 2015. Many teams have previously tried to commercialize the technology but The Graph is the first project to deploy generalized state channels at scale. …
An overview of The Graph Network, incentives for providing Indexing and Curating services, and how you can get involved.
The Graph is a protocol for organizing blockchain data and making it easily accessible. It’s powering many of the most used applications in DeFi and the broader Web3 ecosystem today. Anyone can build and publish subgraphs, which are open APIs that applications can query with GraphQL. Subgraphs make it easy for developers to build on blockchains. What Google does for search, The Graph does for blockchains.
Currently, The Graph’s hosted service is processing over 4 billion monthly queries for applications like Uniswap, CoinGecko and Synthetix, for data like token prices, past trade volumes, and liquidity. However, The Graph’s mission is not to run a hosted service in perpetuity but to eliminate the possibility for APIs, servers and databases becoming single points of failure and control. This is why we’re building The Graph Network to create an open marketplace of Indexers and Curators that work together to efficiently index and serve all the data for DeFi and Web3 in a decentralized way. …
With over 200 Indexers on The Graph’s Testnet, Curators are now invited to participate!
SAN FRANCISCO, SEPTEMBER 17, 2020 — Today The Graph announced the launch of its Curator Program. CoinGecko, CoinMarketCap, Messari, Delphi Digital, Zapper, Synthetix, Pool Together, LivePeer, mStable and Balancer are all preregistered to be Curators on The Graph Network. If you would like to be a Curator on The Graph network, please Register Here.
With over 210 Indexers running Graph Nodes in Mission Control, the incentivized testnet, The Graph is in the final stages of decentralizing the query layer of DeFi and Web3. During Mission Control, Indexers have been operating servers running The Graph’s software, completing technical missions and contributing to improving The Graph Network. …
