Is the graph real time?

Hi,

Can i rely on The Graph for real time data for my wallet? Or is there a delay between the blockchain and The Graph? If so how long?

Regards,

Stéphane.

The answer here is: It depends on the subgraph and on the indexed chain.

Some subgraphs are very quick to index (less than seconds) and some are slower. Do you know which subgraphs do you want to use? Here are some good ones: https://subgraphs.messari.io

Also, can you elaborate a bit more on “real-time”? After a block is included, would 1-2 seconds be good enough?

If you really have real-real-time requirements, you might also want to have a look at https://substreams.streamingfast.io
