What is The Graph (GRT)?

The Graph is an indexing protocol for decentralized applications that allows developers to access blockchain data efficiently. By analogy, just as Google indexes the internet, Graph indexes blockchain data collected from networks like Ethereum. This data is grouped in open APIs called subgraphs that anyone can query. Developers can create subgraphs of blockchain data. Thus, The Graph network enables serverless operation and applications can serve more securely and uninterruptedly without being connected to a single server or database.

The Graph Protocol

Starting out as an indexing protocol, The Graph not only supports many applications in the decentralized finance (DeFi) system, but also aims to query data in networks such as Ethereum and IPFS in the Web3 ecosystem. The Graph platform has a cryptocurrency called GRT, which is the ERC-20 token.

Who/By Who Was The Graph Developed?

The founding developers of The Graph include professional contributors such as Ethereum Foundation, OpenZeppelin, Decentraland, Orchid, MuleSoft. The initial founding team of the Graph protocol includes Yaniv Tal as the project leader, Jannis Pohlmann as the technology leader, and Brandon Ramirez as the research leader.
