Thanks to the integration with Arbitrum, The Graph’s hosting indexing and querying services are now live on the network. Developers on Arbitrum One will now be able to build and publish open APIs (subgraphs) that applications can query using GraphQL.
Integration Another Step In The Graph’s Expansion Efforts To Unite Web3 Ecosystem
The Graph is the indexing and query layer of the decentralized web. With Arbitrum One joining the list of blockchains supported by the protocol, now developers in the Arbitrum ecosystem will be able to apply indexing to build scalable decentralized applications.
The Graph already supports indexing data for Ethereum, IPFS, Celo, Avalanche, Fantom, and Moonbeam. In addition, thousands of developers have already built over 10,000 subgraphs for applications like DODO, MCDEX, Uniswap, Synthetic, Gnosis, Decentraland, etc. By adding Arbitrum to that list, The Graph’s expansion efforts have taken another step in uniting the Web3 ecosystem.
Co-Founder of MCDEX, Jean Miao, stated,
“The Graph has been a wonderful tool that we implement in our routine work. We will absolutely recommend it to dev teams that are seeking to increase productivity. By expanding to Arbitrum rollup, The Graph is able to further assist us and many other devs to achieve greater success.”
Seamless Integration From Ethereum To Arbitrum Now A Reality
Arbitrum is a Layer 2 scaling solution that allows parties to create smart contracts at a low cost but with high throughput while remaining trustlessly secure. Its technology was developed by making sure that developers could port their code from the Ethereum mainnet to Arbitrum seamlessly. With the indexing and querying support from Graph now live on Arbitrum One, many developers will be able to eliminate the need for modifications and set up their frontends seamlessly by using The Graph’s subgraphs.
Co-Founder of DODO, Diane Dai, stated,
“Having The Graph also supported on Arbitrum will mean a greater user and developer experience for DODO. Working together, we are excited to bring our Proactive Market Maker (PMM) algorithm to Arbitrum and continue delivering the most efficient liquidity solutions to the market.”
About The Graph
The Graph is an indexing protocol for organizing blockchain data and making it easily accessible with GraphQL. The Graph currently supports indexing data from Ethereum, IPFS, and PoA, with more networks coming soon.
Arbitrum is a scaling solution for Ethereum that drastically reduces costs and latency. Arbitrum has launched Arbitrum One on the Ethereum mainnet, and the team is getting ready for its upcoming release to the public.
