The Graph Indexing and Querying Services Are Live on Arbitrum One
With Arbitrum One now open to developers, we are excited to announce that The Graph’s hosted indexing and querying services are live on Arbitrum One joining other protocols and infrastructure providers including Gnosis Safe and Etherscan supporting the network, with many more infrastructure announcements coming up over the next couple of weeks. The Graph provides an indexing and query layer of the decentralized web. Developers on Arbitrum can now build and publish open APIs, called subgraphs, that applications can query using GraphQL.
The Graph’s community of over 17,000 active developers have built over 12,000 subgraphs for applications like Aave, DoDo, Gnosis, MCDEX, Sushiswap, Uniswap and many others that are deploying on Arbitrum One. The Graph’s mission of providing indexed data for all decentralized applications matches ours, and we are excited to be collaborating with their incredible team to ensure that Arbitrum developers and users have access to their first-class developer tooling.
In developing the Arbitrum technology one of the most important design decisions was ensuring that developers will be able to port their code from Ethereum mainnet into Arbitrum in a seamless manner. Having The Graph’s support on Arbitrum One will allow the many developers that use The Graph’s subgraphs to port their contracts and set up their frontends without having to make any modifications, helping bring the vision of seamless integration to fruition.
“The Arbitrum team has amazing execution, and this will help gain a first-mover advantage to become the most competitive L2 solution. Having The Graph also supported on Arbitrum will mean a greater user and developer experience for DODO. Working together, we are excited to bring our Proactive Market Maker (PMM) algorithm to Arbitrum and continue delivering the most efficient liquidity solutions to the market.”
— — Diane Dai, cofounder of DODO
“The Graph has been a wonderful tool that we implement in our routine work. We will absolutely recommend it to dev teams that are seeking to increase productivity. By expanding to Arbitrum rollup, The Graph is able to further assist us and many other devs to achieve greater success.”
— — Jean Miao, cofounder of MCDEX
About The Graph
The Graph is the indexing and query layer of the decentralized web. Developers build and publish open APIs, called subgraphs that applications can query using GraphQL. The Graph currently supports indexing data from Ethereum, IPFS, and PoA with more networks coming soon. To date, over 12,000 subgraphs have been deployed by over 17,000 developers for applications, such as Uniswap, Synthetix, Aragon, Gnosis, Balancer, Livepeer, DAOstack, AAVE, Decentraland, and many others.
Not technical but want to get involved and earn GRT on the decentralized network? You are welcome to join The Graph Network as an Indexer, Curator and/or Delegator. Delegate your GRT today to help secure the network by adding GRT to Indexers’ stake. Anyone can be a Delegator and learn about how to delegate on the network using the Delegation Guide, Community Guide, Choosing an Indexer Video, dapp query dashboard, and The Graph Academy. The Graph is a dynamic community with the resources to onboard people with any level of experience in blockchain projects — or none at all.
Arbitrum is a scaling solution for Ethereum that drastically reduces costs and latency. A so-called “Optimistic Rollup”, Arbitrum instantly scales apps, reducing costs and increasing capacity, without sacrificing Ethereum’s security. Porting contracts to Arbitrum requires no code changes or downloads as Arbitrum is fully compatible with all existing Ethereum developer tooling. Arbitrum has launched Arbitrum One on Ethereum mainnet and is open for developers, and the team is already working with hundreds of teams ahead of its upcoming release to the public.
