The Graph is a protocol for building decentralized applications quickly on Ethereum and IPFS using GraphQL.
On The Graph, queries are processed on a decentralized network that ensures that data remains open and that dApps continue to run no matter what. Users don’t have to trust teams to operate servers and developers can deploy to trustworthy public infrastructure they don’t have to manage.
The Graph uses GraphQL, a query language developed and open-sourced by Facebook. It provides a powerful API to get exactly the data you need in a single request, seamlessly traversing and combining data sources.
While blockchains and storage networks are critical components of the stack, data is rarely stored in a format that can be consumed directly in applications. Applications need to filter, sort, paginate, group, and join data before it can be fetched. Users don’t like looking at spinners and waiting for screens to load. If web3 is going to catch on we need to provide experiences that are as good or better than centralized alternatives.
Today teams are getting around this gap in functionality by building centralized indexing servers. These servers pull data from Ethereum, store it in a database, and expose it over an API. This is brittle as users need to trust these teams to continue to operate these servers correctly. The projects could go out of business, modify the data for strategic reasons, get acquired, or simply make mistakes. Suddenly we’re not far from where we started with web2.
This is why The Grah was create as, a decentralized query protocol for getting data off blockchains and storage networks. By using The Graph, developers can query a peer-to-peer network of indexing nodes using GraphQL and verify the results on the client. This will allow teams to focus on their dApps’ core functionality. They’ll be able to deploy to trustworthy public infrastructure they don’t have to manage and benefit from economies of scale.
If the point of web3 is to create a more dependable foundation for software, The Graph lifts this stability up one level to where any developer can reliably find and consume organized data directly into their dApps.
Build dApps that load lightning fast. Your users will appreciate not having to look at spinners.
Popular with web and mobile developers with existing libraries for React, React Native, and Angular.
Create shareable and composable UI components that load data automatically inside any application.
