What is a Graph?
The Graph is the protocol for indexing and querying data from blockchains, starting with Ethereum. The Graph decentralizes the query and the API layer of Web3. Developers can now leverage its benefits by building and publishing open APIs, which are known as subgraphs.
The Graph is a decentralized query protocol for getting data off the blockchains and storage network. It creates a peer-to-peer network for developers where they can focus on the functionality of their Dapps. It essentially indexes the nodes using GraphQL.
It is a trustworthy infrastructure where a developer can directly find and consume organized data from the Dapp itself.
The Graph creates a more suitable and easy experience for a developer to consume data that is otherwise conventionally hard to access or, has a long process of waiting before getting access. In conventional blockchains and data storage networks, data is rarely stored in an understandable format that can be directly consumed. It makes the web3 more approachable by decentralizing the query and API layer.
What is the GRT token?
The Graph is an Ethereum (ERC-20) token that powers the Graph. The graph protocol uses its native token GRT to carry out work. Indexers who are the node operators earn by GRT by indexing queries on the platform.
How does The Graph work?
The entire working of The graph consists of Curators, Indexers, Delegators, and Consumers.
Indexers stake GRT to operate node and carry out indexing services. They earn query fees and indexing rewards.
The API signal which needs to be indexed is found by Curators and then they pass it on to Indexers for further process. Curators also find the find subgraphs that are most useful to the developers. There are multiple subgraphs on the networks and hence, curators find the relevant subgraphs that can be beneficial for the developers. They are incentivized for the work they perform.
Delegators are those people who contribute to the graph network. Delegators contribute by delegating GRT to existing Indexers instead of running a node by themselves. In return, they earn indexing rewards and query fees.
Consumers are the end of The Graph query subgraphs and pay to Delegators, Indexers, and Curators for delegating GRT, indexing, and finding subgraphs respectively.
If indexers are found to be malicious or have served incorrect data to the applications, their staked GRT is slashed. However, Curators and Delegtaors are not slashed yet there is a tax withdrawal for poor decisions. Such incentivization helps in maintaining the integrity of the network.
Who are the founders of the graph?
The Graph Protocol team consists of 4 team members Jannis Pohlmann, Brandon Ramirez, Tegan Kline, and Yaniv Tal who is the project lead. The founders have engineering backgrounds. They have spent a significant portion of their careers working on API stack.
Yaniv Tal the who is also the Co-Founder of The Graph Protocol after having set up a successful web start-up was passionate about application development.
He started diving into developer tools and soon discovered that it was very difficult to build an application on Ethereum. Hence, he and his Co-Founders felt the need for an indexing protocol for querying data from blockchains and storage networks. The Graph protocol was build in this quest.
The Graph now supports indexing data on Ethereum, PoA, and IPFS. Adding more networks soon is in the works. To date over 3000 subgraphs have been developed leveraging the benefits of The Graph Protocol for apps like Uniswap, Synthetix, Aragon, AAVE, Gnosis, Balancer, Livepeer, DAOstack, AAVE, Decentraland, and many others.
What is the circulating supply of Graph Token or GRT?
The Graph price of GRT currently is USD 0.483459. GRT has a circulating supply of 1,24,56,66,867 GRT coins and a max. supply of 10,00,00,00,000 GRT coins.
Currently, new token issuance in the form of indexing rewards will be at a rate of 3% annually. It can change further as per technical governance.
