The Graph is a decentralized protocol for indexing and querying data from blockchains, starting with Ethereum. It makes it possible to query data that is difficult or impossible to query directly by using a GraphQL interface.

Features

  • Fast data access
  • Compatible with any framework or tool that supports GraphQL
  • Filters, pagination, sorting
  • Subscriptions to data updates

Prizes Offered

Unsure at time of writing, keep an eye on the blog.

Getting Started
