What is The Graph?

The Graph Network decentralizes the API and inquiry layer of the web application stack. Unexpectedly, it will be conceivable to effectively inquiry blockchain information without depending on a brought together specialist organization.

Today, engineers can run a Graph Node on their own framework, or they can expand on their facilitated administration. In The Graph Network, any Indexer will actually want to stake Graph Tokens (GRT) to take an interest in the organize and acquire awards for ordering subgraphs and expenses for serving inquiries on those subgraphs.

Shoppers will actually want to inquiry about this different arrangement of Indexers by paying for their metered use, demonstrating a model where the laws of organic market support the administrations given by the protocol.

How does the graph work?

Engineers can characterize a subgraph that indicates how blockchain information is organized to be devoured by application and dapp designers. Application and dapp designers can question The Graph network utilizing the subgraph construction with GraphQL which are paid in The Graph token (GRT).

This information is served by indexers who go about as hubs, boosted with GRT tokens to guarantee that the API is consistently accessible in a decentralized way, and information are served accurately.

As there can be numerous subgraphs out there, keepers are entrusted to discover the subgraphs that are generally helpful to engineers. Guardians are likewise boosted with GRT tokens to locate the best subgraph that others would discover helpful.

Who founded The Graph?

The Graph is founded by Yaniv Tal (Project Lead), Jannis Pohlman (Tech Lead), and Brandom Ramirez (Research Lead)

What is the GRT Token?

GRT is the local badge of the organization that is utilized to facilitate work. GRT is an ERC20 token. Hub administrators, called Indexers, stake and procure GRT for preparing inquiries. Anybody can designate GRT to Indexers to get organize and acquire rewards. Caretakers sort out information on The Graph by flagging GRT on valuable API's.
