We are pleased to announce that we are now supporting Reef Chain!

Reef Chain is an EVM-compatible blockchain tailored for DeFi, NFT and gaming applications. It is fast, scalable, has low transaction costs, and doesn’t use wasteful mining for consensus. It is built with Substrate Framework and comes with on-chain governance.

SubQuery’s indexing capabilities empower developers on Reef Chaini 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.

Developers building on Reef Chain can now harness SubQuery’s versatile, high-speed, open, and decentralised data indexing solution! This empowers blockchain developers with crucial tools to efficiently manage and query on-chain data for their protocols and applications.

SubQuery simplifies the intricacies of backend operations, providing developers with a tailor-made API. This enables them to focus on product development and enhancing user experiences, without the need to allocate resources towards constructing their indexing solutions.

“This decentralised data indexing solution from SubQuery is a game changer, meeting all the criteria for an unparalleled development process. With its intuitive interface and comprehensive examples, it’s the perfect solution for dealing with large amounts of data in real-time.”

— Denko Mancheski, CEO, Reef Chain

We’re always striving to provide developers with the most comprehensive and efficient indexing experience possible, including the open-source SDK, tools, documentation, and developer support that the SubQuery ecosystem already provides. Reef Chain is also supported in SubQuery’s enterprise level managed service, which provides enterprise-level infrastructure hosting and handles hundreds of millions of requests each day.

> “We’re proud to support Reef with our lightning-fast, versatile indexing solution. With SubQuery, developers can now index data with unprecedented speed and build projects seamlessly.”

— Sam Zou, Founder and CEO of SubQuery

Why Use SubQuery?

SubQuery makes it easy to build a custom API for your dApp or smart contracts in minutes, providing clean indexed data to any service. The excellent SubQuery developer experience is flexible, with the ability to make external API calls or import external libraries from within your mapping functions, and better controls to run your projects in your own infrastructure with automated DOS (denial of service) mitigation controls. Additionally, we have yet to make plans to sunset our managed service.

SubQuery is designed to be fast. This adds up when you’re indexing millions of ledgers, and is something to consider when choosing your indexer. SubQuery achieves this by using multi-threading and optimisation of the store to reduce costly database writes. With faster sync times, developers can iterate faster and deliver features to market quicker.

SubQuery’s Support for Reef

About Reef

REEF is a multi-purpose utility token in the Reef Chain ecosystem. It has a role in the governance of the network and can be staked, used to pay for fees on the network, and traded in the market of cryptocurrencies. REEF is also the centrepiece of the reward system on Reef Chain, with the token being issued to Validators and Nominators for operating the chain.

When it comes to the characteristics of the system, Reef Chain has Solidity support for Ethereum-based dApps, which means that users can transition to Reef without changing the base code of their decentralized applications. Reef Chain also enables forkless upgrades, which means that the network is easily upgradable. Scalability, high transaction throughput, liquidity bridges, and staking are other key elements to the technical capacity of Reef Chain.
