GraphOps Update December 2022

:woman_astronaut: Exec summary

It’s been an exciting month for the ecosystem, with many initiatives across the core dev teams coming to fruition. Graphcast has seen major steps forward, and we have gotten well into our Rust implementation of the SDK and the POI cross-checker Radio. Launchpad continues to improve and we added support for Polygon Mainnet. Our work on the Indexer stack has also been Rust-centric, as we plan a Rust replacement of Indexer Service with E&N. We’ve also been supporting E&N with the work towards an L2 migration.

Happy holidays everyone! Looking forward to a strong year in 2023!
