Welcome to this month in curation July.
What an exciting month! The Graph contiues to grow as a second Core Developer Team joins the ecosystem and production dApps are now live on mainnet.
StreamingFast is joining The Graph Ecosystem
The Graph Foundation awarded a $60 million grant to StreamingFast to join The Graph as a Core Developer Team. This is in line with The Graph’s vision to build a decentralized network of public data with a decentralized ecosystem of contributors.
StreamingFast bring their expertise to help radically improve indexing services and performance. Their proprietary IP will be made open source for the Graph community to use.
StreamingFast won’t stop there. They will also work on;
- Core protocol development
- Multi-blockchain expansion
- GIP implementation
- Developer education
- Subgraph development
- GRP and GRC standards
- Support for Web3 development tooling.
Read the announcement.
The Graph Advocates are coming!
- Graph Advocates will use their knowledge of blockchains and open-source networks to raise awareness and adoption of Web3.
- If you are interested in becoming a Graph Advocate, reply to the tweet and stay tuned.
Production dApps are now live on the network.
- Audius, DODO, Livepeer, mStable, Opyn, PoolTogether, Reflexer, and UMA are now live on The Graph Network and Indexers are earning fees for processing queries from production dapps. This is a monumental development for Web3 as these dapps are running on decentralized infrastructure for the first time. Blogpost
The Graph continues to expand.
The Graph expands to Arbritrum. Arbitrum is an optimistic rollup Ethereum scaling solution that enables high-throughput, low cost smart contracts while remaining trustlessly secure. Indexing and querying of both Arbitrum and Arbitrum’s testnet is now supported. Blogpost
Optimism and The Graph have partnered. The graph will soon be providing indexing and querying services to developers building on the Optimistic Ethereum Layer 2 to help Ethereum scale. Blogpost
The Graph continues to see an explosive growth. Including Arbitrum, The Graph now supports 22 networks. ~20,000 developers have deployed over 16,000 subgraphs to the hosted service.
Each video features expert subgraph developers sharing their experience building on The Graph. We are doing deep dives into specific features or tooling used for subgraph development. This series is of great value to both beginner and experienced subgraph developers.
In our previous video we looked at Subgraph Performance. If you missed it, be sure to check out Developer Highlights #3.
This month, we speak with Nacho Mazzara, Engineering manager at Decentraland and Co-Founder of pine.finance. Nacho walks us through how decentraland is using templates to dynamically index contracts. We also take a look at how pine.finance utilize regular transactions with extra data to create limit orders.
