Hey everyone! I wanted to share a recap of some of the latest highlights for the first quarter of 2021 for The Graph Foundation.
We’ve allocated $5M in Wave 1 of The Graph Grants to support the protocol, tooling, dapps/subgraphs & community. Over 70 grants were funded from more than 200 applications globally!

Starting next month the first production subgraphs will begin migrating from The Graph’s hosted service to the decentralized network! This is an exciting next step in bootstrapping The Graph Network. Learn more about the migration process here: https://thegraph.com/blog/mainnet-migration
Multi Blockchain Support
The Graph Community is working on adding support for Four Additional Blockchains: Polkadot, NEAR, Solana, Celo. At the same time, the Hosted Service added support for multiple chains (Matic, Fuse, Binance Smart Chain and Clover).
Over these last few months, the Graph Community launched some new community initiatives which you can follow in The Graph Forum.
