🛠Who made The Graph?🛠
The Graph was founded by electrical engineer Yaniv Tal, computer scientist Jannis Pohlmann, and roboticist Brandon Ramirez. When the trio came across Ethereum in 2017, they became obsessed with its potential and started building decentralized applications on the Ethereum blockchain.
However, they noticed a problem. Although Ethereum has a lot of data that is openly accessible to developers, combing through that data is incredibly difficult and this makes it impossible to build more complex dApps without excessive amounts of lag.
They decided to solve this problem by building a data indexing protocol for Ethereum and IPFS that would eventually become known as “The Graph”. An initial whitepaper for the project was written in March 2017, and The Graph was officially announced over a year later in June 2018.
🕵️♂What Is The Graph?🕵️♂
The Graph functions as a sort of marketplace for specific data that is on Ethereum. Each dataset on this marketplace is called a ‘subgraph’ and can be seen using The Graph explorer. Each subgraph is basically a description of specific smart contracts within those dApps and any values in them that would be relevant to someone building a new dApp using that data. You think of this as being the equivalent of using bookmarks and a highlighter on a textbook.
🔗How The Graph Works🔗
Using The Graph Explorer, a dApp developer can easily request the data that they need for their dApp using The Graph’s own intuitive querying language called GraphQL. When a data request is made by a developer, nodes on the Graph Network called ‘Indexers’ search through relevant subgraphs to find the information being requested. Indexers choose which subgraphs to pull the data from based on something called a curation signal that is provided by Curators who develop subgraphs and assess them for their quality.
GRT is an ERC-20 token with an initial supply of 10 billion. Of GRT’s initial supply of 10 billion, only 4% was sold during The Graph’s ICO which took place in October this year. All tokens save for those sold during the ICO are subject to various unlock schedules that last anywhere from 6 months to 10 years. It seems like most of this vesting is set to occur over the next 2 years, with the total amount of GRT tokens in circulations set to triple in just 6 months.
GRT also has an inflation rate of 3% per year which is used to pay Indexing rewards to Indexers. That said, 1% of all query fees go towards burning GRT. The withdrawal tax charged to Curators is also burned, and the same goes for any unclaimed rewards from the Rebate Pool distributed to network participants. This means that GRT could technically become deflationary if there are enough query requests on The Graph Explorer.
📅The Graph Roadmap📅
The Graph’s data protocol is being used by developers at Uniswap, Synthetix, Decentraland, Aragon, and many others. Over 3000 subgraphs have been listed on the Graph Explorer so far, and The Graph Network is processing around *half a billion* data queries per day!
The launch of The Graph main net on December 17th ushered in a new era for the project, marking the beginning of a transition to what sounds like a decentralized autonomous organization of DAO. In 2021, The Graph hopes to expand to other blockchains beyond Ethereum. There’s no telling what a protocol like The Graph could do to enhance other smart contract blockchains.
