About SKALE Network

Add any general information about the blockchain that the Graph protocol should support
SKALE Network is a multichain hybrid layer-1/layer-2 solution fully EVM compatible. SKALE Network Is growing vertically by adding new SKALE chains which are separate EVM compatible chains with a security derived by Ethereum: Untitled :: SKALE Network Documentation
SKALE Network has a different economic model which allows to have free txs on SKALE chain by subscription model of SKALE chains - so end-customer pays 0 on chain. Read more about this: Snapshot

SKALE Network is live from October 2020 and full launch of SKALE chains happened in May 2022 with interconnected IMA bridge with capability to transfer messages between chains with 0 cost.

There are 20 SKALE chains live on SKALE Network where 4 community hubs and 16 are App chain specific

  1. Europa Liquidity Hub - DeFi & Liquidity SKALE chain for Dex, DeFI Dapps
  2. Calypso Hub - Web3 Innovation Hub for NFT, Social and different Apps
  3. Nebula Gaming Hub - Web3 games, Play-to-Earn games and etc
  4. Titan AI Hub - For various of Dapps which adopting AI and Web3 ecosystems together

SKALE is top 7 blockchain networks by UAWs and TXs by Dappradar:

Contact Information

I am the Head of Developer Success team at SKALE Network. We have built graph node integration for SKALE chains several time which works perfectly. And would be glad to add support for 3 main hubs in The Graph directly.

Graph Node integration

SKALE chains are fully EVM compatible and we have several examples of running a graph node.
Here is link to the documentation: Getting Started with The Graph :: SKALE Network Documentation
Working example of Graph Node human-protocol/packages/sdk/typescript/subgraph at main · humanprotocol/human-protocol · GitHub

Integration with Subgraph Studio or alternatives

We can provide everything which you need (RPC endpoint, Archive Nodes endpoint etc) and Engineering help to integrate all of this in the Subgraph studio.

Indexer Documentation

Indexer can point to RPC node or Archival node:
RPC node doc (reverse-proxy): Using Reverse Proxy :: SKALE Network Documentation
Archival node doc: Using Reverse Proxy :: SKALE Network Documentation

You can not create blockchain node and connect it to SKALE chain!
You can only create an archival blockchain node and connect it to SKALE chain with notification to the Core team.
Also you can create a reverse-proxy node - to redirect requests to publicly known blockchain nodes.

Hello @payvint
Appreciate you taking the time to fill out the information above. I went ahead and provided the next steps below to follow to proceed with the Chain Integration Process.

Next Steps:

  1. We need additional details on the setup of an archive node specifically for Indexers, as well as hardware requirements. Proper documentation will certainly be beneficial and welcomed by the Indexer community.
  2. Please provide an example of a subgraph. This will enable Indexers to begin synchronization, allowing us to assess the service quality — ensuring that Indexers can dependably and efficiently support — and to check for any PoI discrepancies . Both QoS and determinism assurances are essential for mainnet support with indexing rewards.
  3. Proceed with integrating the Subgraph Studio. More details about this will be shared during our intro call we will arrange once these task items have been completed. For some of the more commonly asked questions in regards to the process.

That covers everything at the moment.

Subsequently, the Indexer community will be notified about your chain entering the CIP process, to help them prepare their nodes. We also encourage you to attend our weekly Indexer Office Hours, a community call aimed at Indexers so that you can better educate Indexers on how to run [insert chain name] nodes. If interested, you can join us by following this Discord link: Discord . These meetings take place every Tuesday at 6pm UTC.
