OnFinality’s mission is to support blockchain developers by providing infrastructure services to customers of all shapes and sizes. We’re launching a new venture that aims to solve a core problem to advance this mission: SubQuery.
Almost every blockchain has a need to process and query data. The thriving Polkadot community is going to need a service that allows them to reliably find and consume data quickly. Our project is inspired by The Graph, an service currently focused on Ethereum that allows customers to do this using GraphQL.
Since decentralised systems store data across networks querying is slow and hard. For…
Today we’re going to explore the goals that we have with SubQuery and some of the competitive advantages that we think make the SubQuery Network better than our competitors.
SubQuery’s currently provided indexing and transformation data in a centralised way. Although this has allowed us to power some of the top Polkadot projects; DeFi apps like Acala and Bifrost, wallets like Fearless Wallet, NFT platforms like KodaDot, cross-chain bridges like Darwinia, and analytics platforms like SubVis — it has it’s downside.
It requires our users to trust the service we provide, and carries risks associated with a centralised service…
How does the SubQuery Network work? ELI5
Today we’re going to talk about how the SubQuery Network works at a high level.
There are three types of participants in the SubQuery Network:
Let’s start with Indexers, Indexers do a lot of…
SubQuery’s mission is to make decentralised data more accessible.
We transform and organise data from Polkadot and Substrate projects, and then provide that data for developers to use for a wide array of projects (wallets, explorers, custom chains, or any other dApp).
Everyone knows that a core weakness of blockchain data is that the processing and query performance is extremely inefficient. SubQuery provides an open source SDK, which provides the instructions on how any Indexer should traverse the blockchain, what data to collect, and how it should be shown to users.
Creating a SubQuery project is, and always will…
Behind the scenes we’ve been busier than ever in May, expanding our team, delivering products, and most importantly, bring on as many partners as possible.
In this monthly update:
Today we’re introducing deployment slots, a whole new feature that improves the developer experience in SubQuery’s hosted service.
SubQuery Projects is already being used as a managed and hosted service for many Projects, whether they’re chain explorers, wallets, NFT explorers, or others. It’s a service that our customers rely on.
Although you can always run SubQuery’s infrastructure yourself (with your own node and query service), we aim to make our hosted service the most reliable, resilient, and performant data provider in the Polkadot/Substrate ecosystem.
Creators of SubQuery Projects are constantly improving and updating their Projects and the data within…
We are pleased to announce that SubQuery and Darwinia Network have formed a strategic partnership.
Darwinia recently released two new SubQuery projects, one for their main network and the other for Crab, their canary network. By exposing their data on SubQuery, Darwinia is opening the door for their application ecosystem to build more engaging applications on this free datasource.
“Using SubQuery to query Darwinia’s on-chain data has become very simple and flexible. SubQuery regards blockchain data as a graph, and leverages the extensibility of GraphQL to introduce additional functionality. We believe that in the future, the data interface on…
April was an incredibly busy month for SubQuery, our growth is starting to accelerate at a serious pace and we’re breaking new records each day. As we mentioned last month, our focus in the short term is on two elements; scaling our platform to keep up with skyrocketing demand, and engaging with more and more partners to help them create their own SubQuery projects.
In this monthly update:
Bifrost recently launched the beta of their new dApp, the official interactive interface for all Bifrost services. Through this dApp, users can mint vTokens, redeem and swap these derivatives, and view their earnings in real time. This beta dApp is a huge step forward in allowing users to reduce staking costs across chains by maintaining liquidity. You can try out Bifrost’s new dApp here.
“Without SubQuery, it is difficult to imagine how complicated it is to manually collect data from the chain. Bifrost developers may spend a lot of time searching for all transaction data on chain to be used…
Today we’re launching the next phase of SubQuery — Projects. SubQuery’s mission is to make the world’s decentralised data more accessible, so this announcement this week is huge for our community!
Before you could create and run your own SubQuery projects locally or in your own infrastructure. Starting today, we’ll run them for you in a high performance, scalable, and managed public service — for free!
SubQuery is here to help you transform and query the world’s data for a web3.0 future.
