Ankündigung von SubQuery

Transform und Abfrage der weltweiten Daten für die Zukunft web3.0

OnFinality hat folgendes zum Ziel: Blockchain-Entwickler zu unterstützen, indem sie den Kunden aller Formen und Größen Infrastrukturdienstleistungen anbietet. Wir starten ein neues Unternehmen, das darauf abzielt, ein Kernproblem zu lösen, um diese Mission voranzutreiben: SubQuery.

Fast jede Blockchain muss Daten verarbeiten und abfragen. Die blühende Polkadot Community wird einen Service benötigen, der macht möglich, schnell Daten zu finden und zu konsumieren. Unser Projekt ist inspiriert von The Graphopen in new window, einem Dienst, der sich derzeit auf Ethereum konzentriert, der den Kunden ermöglicht, dies mit GraphQL zu tun.

Da dezentrale Systemdaten über Netzwerke hinweg speichern, ist die Abfrage langsam und schwierig. Damit der Web 3.0-Traum verwirklicht werden kann, muss er für den Endbenutzer so schnell (wenn nicht schneller) wie zentralisierte Netzwerke sein. Protokoll-Teams bauen derzeit zentralisierte Indizierungsserver für ihre eigenen Projekte, aber dies wirft drei Probleme auf:

  • Polkadot/Substrat-Teams sollten sich keine Gedanken machen müssen, dies zu bauen oder zu verwalten, während sie die nächste dApp bauen
  • Teams erfinden das Rad ständig neu; Der grundlegende Vorteil der Parachain-Interoperabilität von Polkadot besteht darin, dies zu vermeiden
  • Unserer Ansicht nach ist das Ökosystem Substrate/Polkadot auf dem gleichen Wachstumsniveau wie Ethereum angelangt. Wir glauben, dass es dasselbe Niveau an Gemeinschaftsdiensten erbringen muss wie Ethereum bereits hat

SubQuery hat folgendes Ziel: Polkadot/Substrat Projekten dabei zu helfen, bessere dApps zu entwickeln, indem es jedem ermöglicht, Daten schneller zu finden und zu konsumieren. Unser Service ermöglicht den Benutzern, anfangs Daten zu extrahieren, zu transformieren, zu verbleiben und Abfragedaten zu erstellen sowie in Zukunft Daten zu verbinden und zu präsentieren. Unser Ziel ist es, dies zu einem Kernstück der Infrastruktur für das Ökosystem Substrate/Polkadot zu machen, so wie es die Grafik für Ethereum geworden ist.

SubQuery is here to help you transform and query the world’s data for a web3.0 future.

For the Web 3.0 dream to be realised, it’s got to be as fast (if not faster) than centralised networks for the end user.

That’s why we’re incredibly proud to announce SubQuery, an open source project that allows users to run an indexer across their chain to build a dataset that can be queried with GraphQL. This suite of tools includes a command line interface to allow projects to generate their own SubQuery project, defining how the indexer should traverse and aggregate their own network. There’s a SubQuery node package that indexes the network and supports GraphQL queries. With the help of these tools, anyone can create and run queries easily.

You can get started right away by following our example on the SubQuery Github repository: https://github.com/OnFinality-io/subqlopen in new window

We’ll focus on building a managed hosted service based off this offering that will be more performant and scalable. We are going to provide trusty public infrastructure that will build a powerful productionised SubQuery node from an uploaded SubQuery project. The service will then index and persist the chain state, and provide a production GraphQL endpoint that can replace self-hosted implementations. We’re going to focus on this so that everyone else can focus on building and growing their dApp.

Once this is in place, our final phase is to tokenize the SubQuery business by building our own chain (likely parachain) for Polkadot. Although we’ll provide a similar billing model for enterprise and high consumption users (subscription plan with consumption levels), we’ll save this data to our chain to make it transparent to everyone and participating parties can stake for rewards as incentives. We’ll issue a governance token to provide stability to the chain and to allow the community to influence our direction and roadmap.

Despite over 10 years of development since bitcoin first started, centralised networks are still the mainstream. It’s largely due to the speed and cost of accessing and writing to the network. Ethereum made a huge step forward with decentralised smart contracts (and the Graph is an incredibly successful piece of infrastructure as a result), but the core network is struggling to mitigate transaction costs.

We saw Polkadot’s potential early and right from the start it felt natural to focus our efforts there. It solves Ethereum’s governance, forking, interoperability problems, and more. The core premise of Polkadot is to create a thriving community of developers, users, and businesses that will tap into its multichain interoperability — that community is going to need a service that allows them to reliably find and consume data quickly.

Polkadot’s unique architecture means that we can focus on one network and then be able to support multiple current and future chains with ease. By putting in this effort now, even as Polkadot is still under development, we will be there ready to help the next generation of blockchain developers create the next big dApp.

SubQuery will be built by the team at OnFinality, which is an infrastructure SaaS platform for blockchain teams and users to launch nodes and get access to a large range of blockchain protocols. We have a suite of symbiotic services including our API shared node service, and dedicated nodes that can be used in infrastructure management or as part of a protocol team’s CI/CD testing pipeline. We have relationships with the top Polkadot/Substrate teams, expertise in managed infrastructure hosting for the Substrate/Polkadot network, and the ability to deliver complex infrastructure projects and host them for production use.
