Today, we are excited to announce full SubQuery support for Akash Network. SubQuery’s indexing capabilities empower developers on Akash to efficiently manage and query on-chain data, expediting development processes and facilitating rapid iterations, ultimately advancing the goal of onboarding the next billion users to the blockchain.

Akash Network is an open-source Supercloud that lets users buy and sell computing resources securely and efficiently. The network is purpose-built for public utility.

Now, developers building on Akash can take advantage of SubQuery’s versatile, high-speed, open, and decentralised data indexing solution, equipping blockchain developers with essential tools for efficiently managing and querying on-chain data for their protocols and applications.

By abstracting the backend complexities, SubQuery delivers a custom API, allowing developers to prioritise product development and user experience instead of dedicating resources to building their own indexing solutions.

“At Akash, we’re committed to providing developers with the best tools and services for building, deploying, iterating, and scaling their applications and we’re thrilled to include one of the best multi-chain indexers in the market in our ecosystem.”

— Anil Murty, VP of Product & Engineering at Overclock Labs (Creators of Akash Network)

We continuously aim to offer developers the most extensive and efficient indexing experience, encompassing open-source SDKs, tools, comprehensive documentation, and dedicated developer support available within the SubQuery ecosystem. Additionally, we’re proud to extend our support for Akash to our enterprise level managed service, which handles hundreds of millions of daily requests, ensuring robust infrastructure hosting.

Furthermore, with the upcoming launch of the SubQuery Network, we are poised to provide developers on Akash Network with yet another decentralised indexing solution.

“We are pleased to announce the integration of SubQuery’s data indexing solution into the Akash Network. By integrating our advanced data indexer, developers on the Akash Network gain unprecedented access to blockchain insights, streamlining user experiences and allowing them to benefit from SubQuery’s fast, flexible, and open indexing solution to help them scale.”

— Sam Zou, Founder and CEO of SubQuery

Our experience with customers across all verticals in Ethereum, Polygon, Polkadot, Cosmos, Algorand, NEAR, and Avalanche (such as wallets, networks, explorers, NFT, DeFi, and scanners, etc.) has helped us build one of the best-performing Indexers for developers in web3.

SubQuery is currently focused on decentralising and tokenizing the protocol to build the SubQuery Network. The SubQuery Network will index and service data from projects to the global community in an incentivized and verifiable way and support indexing Akash projects, and those from any other supported network from the outset.

Why Use SubQuery?

SubQuery offers remarkable flexibility, enabling external API calls and the integration of external libraries within your mapping functions. It also provides enhanced control for running projects on your infrastructure, complete with automated denial-of-service (DOS) mitigation controls. Importantly, we want to emphasise that there are no plans to discontinue our managed service.

When it comes to speed, SubQuery truly excels, especially when dealing with the indexing of vast numbers of blocks. This speed advantage becomes crucial when selecting your indexer. SubQuery achieves this by employing multi-threading and optimising the store to minimise resource-intensive database writes. The result? Faster synchronisation times that empower developers to iterate swiftly and bring new features to market with remarkable speed.

Last but not least, in just a few months, you’ll have the opportunity to fully decentralise your SubQuery infrastructure with the impending launch of the SubQuery Network. This network represents the future of Web3 infrastructure, with the capacity to index and serve your project’s data to the global community in a secure and incentivized manner. It’s crafted to accommodate any SubQuery project, regardless of the supported network. This means you can harness the vast scale of the unified SubQuery Network right from the very beginning.

SubQuery’s Support for Akash

About Akash

Akash Network is a distributed marketplace for cloud resources. The open design of the network makes Akash the first operational ‘Supercloud’ — a cloud architecture that enables users to rapidly scale and access services from compute providers around the world. Accessing the Akash Supercloud is permissionless, and all network code is open-source. This makes the Akash ideal for distributed machine learning and AI development, blockchain nodes, web applications, and more.
