Tapio and Taiga protocol is excited to be working with SubQuery, a decentralized data aggregation layer that operates between layer 1 blockchain and dApp layer. SubQuery enables permissionless access to organized blockchain data for readily available consumption.

Tapio and Taiga Protocol’s mission is to remove liquidity siloes created by different formats of staking and crowdloan derivatives by introducing a highly efficient synthetic asset standard for the Polkadot and Kusama ecosystem. Our inaugural synthetic asset on Karura, taiKSM aggregates KSM and LKSM liquidity on Karura, it is designed to provide an enhanced use case for Parachains, LPs, traders and project teams.

As the Polkadot and Kusama ecosystem matures, we anticipate high growth and utility for our synthetic asset solutions (taiKSM, tDOT, 3pool)). It is extremely crucial for us to understand protocol usage in order to evaluate stability and risk metrics. Tapio and Taiga Protocol makes use of SubQuery’s reliable data infrastructure in 2 ways:

  1. Using SubQuery data service to build our usage dashboards, enabling stakeholders to visualize usage analytics on our protocols. Specifically, our dashboards display comprehensive data on synthetic asset mint, redemption, yield composition and trading volume. Currently, we created 3 dashboards covering taiKSM, 3pool and tDOT using SubQuery data service.
  2. Leveraging SubQuery as indexer for our backend services and we rely on SubQuery to index historical on-chain data allowing us convenient access to reliable data powering our servers and applications on top.

With the rapid adoption of crypto applications and use cases, we require reliable and high performance on-chain data solutions to enable standardized data collection and analysis workflows. SubQuery has built a comprehensive suite of infrastructure and data solutions enabling protocol teams to query data on the blockchain quickly and comprehensively.

About SubQuery

SubQuery is a blockchain developer toolkit enabling others to build Web3 applications of the future. A SubQuery project is a complete API to organize and query data from layer-1 chains. Currently servicing Polkadot, Substrate, Avalanche and Terra projects, this data-as-a-service allows developers to focus on their core use case and front-end, without needing to waste time on building a custom backend for data processing. The SubQuery Network proposes to enable this same scalable and reliable solution, but in a completely decentralised way.

About Tapio & Taiga

Tapio is a synthetic asset protocol enabling efficient liquidity for staking, crowdloan and uniform assets. It is designed to remove liquidity silos by synthesizing different formats of derivatives into a highly usable synthetic asset on Polkadot. Taiga is the mirror implementation of Tapio on Kusama.

Tapio officially started in early 2021 when we received our first Web3 Foundation Open Grant. We are also the inaugural recipient for the Acala Ecosystem Grant. Our team is composed of engineers, financiers, security experts and serial entrepreneurs based in Canada, China and U.S.
