I started using The Graph for my projects. The subgraphs I’ve used didn’t cost me and worked great. Very happy.
Started looking at other subgraphs that required an api key. The key needed to be funded with GRT.
Went on a dex to swap $5 worth of ETH for GRT. Then moved my GRT from layer 1 to layer 2 (polygon). Then moved my L2 polygon to the graph contract to query.
Process took 30 minutes. Below are the transaction fees.
I’ve been thinking, can I just pay $5 with my credit card to get the same data? I don’t want to deal with these fees. Especially for rapid prototyping.
Is anyone getting rekt with transaction fees? Would love to hear your experiences.
