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

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.
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
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 can point to RPC node or Archival node:

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.
