The Graph is an indexing protocol for querying data from blockchains and storage networks.

Layer 1/Layer 2 Protocols


The Graph

The Graph allows developers to build and publish open APIs, called subgraphs, that applications can query using GraphQL.

The Graph currently supports indexing data from Ethereum, PoA, and IPFS, with more networks coming soon. To date, over 2,300 subgraphs have been deployed by thousands of developers for applications like Uniswap, Synthetix, Aragon, AAVE, Gnosis, Balancer, Livepeer, DAOstack, AAVE, Decentraland and many others.
