At our core, we are driven by a singular mission: to construct the most inclusive, high-performing, dependable, and adaptable data service tailored explicitly for dApp developers. To achieve this goal, we need Node Operators to join us.

Today we are putting the call out for experienced node runners to join the SubQuery Network and be generously rewarded for doing so!

The SubQuery Network powers RPCs and Data Indexers for the global community in an incentivised and verifiable way. Once your project is published on the SubQuery Network, it becomes accessible for anyone to index and host, ensuring faster and more reliable decentralised data. 

Special Offer for New Node Operators

During the month of May, new Node Operators who join and actively engage in the network will receive support from the SubQuery Foundation. For the initial six months of operation, the Foundation will double your stake amount through delegation.

For example, if you stake 200,000 SQT, the Foundation will delegate 400,000 SQT to you, taking your total to 600,000 SQT.

Special Offer for Existing Node Operators

If you're already a Node Operator, there’s rewards for you too: a referral bonus!

When you refer a new Node Operator in May, the SubQuery Foundation will delegate 300k for the next 6 months of your operation for each qualified Node Operator you refer. This means that if you have 200,000 SQT staked, the Foundation will delegate 300,000 SQT, taking your total to 500,000 SQT. 

Why be a Node Operator on the SubQuery Network

Currently, the existing Node Operators are receiving an average of 38% APY, with the best-performing Node Operator receiving over 97% APY. 

As the network continues to grow, these generous APY rates are expected to persist, serving as a significant opportunity to fuel network expansion. Read more about how Node Operator rewards work.

Becoming a Node Operator is easy! Here’s why:

  • If you’re already an indexer on the Graph, the SubQuery Network is much the same. 
  • If you’re already running an RPC endpoint for networks like POKT or Blast, it’s just one extra simple service to connect that existing RPC to the network (you could even run that same RPC for both networks)
  • Low initial stake required, much lower than other network requirements for validators or indexers
  • Enjoy relaxed slashing and uptime conditions. Our mesh network is built to accommodate operator downtime, alleviating concerns about getting slashed if your node experiences a brief offline period.
  • Experience the freedom to index or serve the data of your choice. Whether you're keen on running an RPC or indexing data for your app, becoming a node operator means you'll be rewarded for pursuing your interests today.

How to start

Become a Node Operator today by following our step-by-step guide here.

Once your account is set up and active, please reach out to so we can delegate your SQT for 6 months. Let us know which Node Operator referred you and helped you out so they can receive their referral bonus!

Programme Terms

Please note the following limitations and conditions:

  • The program is limited to onboarding 50 new Node Operators, with a delegation cap of 1,000,000 SQT per Node Operator. 
  • To qualify for delegation under this program, you must be an active Node Operator with at least three different project deployments, each with an active published flex plan. 
  • One of these active published flex plans must be for an RPC project
  • Successful referrals must also meet the criteria above and there is an upper limit of 3 referrals per Node Operator (therefore a delegation cap of 900,000 SQT for existing Node Operators)
