Know Your Indexer #26 | Braindexer

Know Your Indexer, it’s a segment that allows you to get to know and feel closer to your favorite Indexer. As we grow, more indexers are joining our ecosystem for to helping the healthy growth of the community. In this month’s segment we have the honor to present Braindexer.

Braindexer interview


  1. Team background

Braindexer team: Braindexer is a multi-talented team of brainiacs with deep expertise working in The Graph ecosystem. In addition to operating an Indexer, our team has experience in subgraph development, engineering, dev ops, community support and developer relations.


  1. When was the first time you heard about the graph and why did you decide to get involved in the project?

Braindexer team: Most of Braindexer’s teammates first became involved in The Graph ecosystem between the years of 2019 and 2021. We were motivated by The Graph’s mission to make open data easily accessible by anyone. In the modern age, our society relies upon data to power complex global systems. The Graph rose above other data indexing systems when the ecosystem took a firm stance against the centralization of data access. The Graph’s founders boldly asked: why should any one entity, be it corporation or powerful authority, get to decide which data is recorded in history and who gets to access it? This message resonated with the founders of Braindexer, and we decided to join the mission of The Graph’s decentralized network.


  1. How many indexers do you have participating in the network? Do you plan to integrate others in the future?

Braindexer team: Currently, we operate two Indexers on The Graph Network – one on Ethereum and another on Arbitrum. Since we are planning to move exclusively to Arbitrum in the coming weeks, Delegators still on L1 (Ethereum) are strongly encouraged to move to L2 (Arbitrum) as soon as possible. Like Braindexer, nearly all other Indexers will shut down operations on L1 once 100% of all indexing rewards have transferred to L2.
As Braindexer continues to scale, we would certainly be interested in addressing web3’s growing data needs either through additional indexing operations or through providing new data services.


  1. In addition to indexers, does your team have other members who participate in different roles in the network?

Braindexer team: Our team is composed of active delegators, curators, subgraph developers, engineers, and community supporters contributing to The Graph Network. We have a well-rounded approach to The Graph thanks to our combined years of participating in and supporting the network.


  1. Why should delegators choose you? How do you create bonds of communication and trust between them and you?

Braindexer team: Braindexer stands distinguished from other Indexers thanks to the brainpower of its unmatched team. Prior to starting Braindexer, each of its founders actively contributed to The Graph Network in several ways – as active contributors to protocol code, as delegators and curators, as subgraph developers, and as web3 business professionals. Years of web3 experience prior to launching an Indexer means that Braindexer brings a unique familiarity of The Graph to the network, in addition to being committed to the network’s long-term mission. We’re not new kids on the block experimenting in a protocol — we’re values-aligned, supporting decentralized access to data around the world.
You can reach the Braindexer team any time on Twitter (@braindexer_eth) or by posting questions in The Graph’s Discord channel.


  1. For those people who are not yet participating in the network, how would you explain to them what the graph is and why they should join our community?

Braindexer team: The Graph makes it easy to access blockchain data. If you’re building a decentralized application (dapp) in web3, you need to display blockchain data in your dapp’s interface. Think of charts, graphs, transactions, and monetary values that you see when you interact with DeFi dapps, NFT dapps, and DAOs. The Graph ensures you can access blockchain data super quickly (thanks to indexing) and that no single entity can shut it down unilaterally (thanks to decentralization).
Why join The Graph community? In addition to it being an incredibly friendly and welcoming online community for learning about web3, The Graph community is a medium for empowering people all over the world to have autonomy over data and their contributions online. Regardless of your technical level, The Graph community has an abundance of ways to participate and build towards a world that is collaborative well beyond borders.


  1. The Advocates program was recently launched, how would you motivate the community to participate in this program?

Braindexer team: The Graph Advocates program is an excellent method to supercharge your contributions to The Graph ecosystem. Any casual spectator of The Graph’s social communities like X or Discord can find their calling in The Graph Advocates program to contribute in several ways, such as event planning, content creation, teaching, technical support and more. What’s great about the Advocates program is that you don’t need to be technical to make an impact. The Advocates program needs people of all specialties and backgrounds. Simply join the Discord and either ask how you can help, or share some of the things you’re good at and would like to contribute with!


  1. What do you like the most about being part of this project and how do you contribute to its growth?

Braindexer team: The Graph is a driving force of innovation for the future of the internet. By making it easier to organize and access data, The Graph turns data into a uniting force for people worldwide. As the world progresses and evolves, the internet will increasingly rely on The Graph as a protocol of permanence, all without ceding power to centralized authorities or corruptible companies. Braindexer is proud to support The Graph Network by indexing useful web3 data indexed by subgraphs for a variety of dapps. This pre-indexed data empowers the next generation of devs to build world-changing web3 applications.


  1. Which blockchain networks are you excited to index for The Graph?

Braindexer team: Braindexer currently indexes subgraphs organizing Ethereum mainnet data, but we are excited for The Graph’s expanding multi-chain capabilities. Demand is growing on chains like Polygon, Arbitrum, and Base, so we will consider adding support for new chains and will review The Graph Network’s needs for multi-chain indexing on a regular basis.


  1. What are you excited about the future of The Graph?

Braindexer team: We’re excited for a world built on truly unstoppable decentralized systems, powered by The Graph! Bringing us closer to that world are a few exciting developments as recently announced as part of The Graph’s New Era roadmap. The Graph is growing to digest and serve more and more of the world’s open data. This invigorates our team as we imagine how many more use cases The Graph can unlock by serving new query languages, database types, data sources and more.
