The kickoff of 2024 was nothing short of spectacular, marked by meticulous planning leading up to our highly anticipated Public Sale on January 30, 2024. The response exceeded expectations, with most tokens sold out within a mere 2 hours!
Thanks to our incredible community, customers and partners - your unwavering support has been the driving force behind this success, and we express our heartfelt gratitude. None of this would have been possible without you, and every aspect of our carefully laid plans has now come to fruition.
However there's no time to bask in the success of the Public Sale, our focus shifts to TGE and the imminent launch of our mainnet! The team is diligently working towards this pivotal milestone in our growth. But before we leap forward, let's take a moment to reflect on the noteworthy events that unfolded in the remarkable month of January 2024.
The SQT Public Sale Results
The SubQuery team is incredibly grateful for the overwhelming support in our $SQT Public Sale! We sold over US$5 million worth of SQT tokens (~435 million SQT tokens) in less than 2 hours, despite challenges like over 10,000 participants temporarily taking the sale platform offline and enduring up to an hour in a virtual queue. Your patience and dedication are truly appreciated.
Some interesting data from the Public Sale:
- A total of 3,964 contributors were able to get some SQT token from the public sale
- SQT purchases came from a diverse 109 countries across the globe on all continents (except Antarctica).
- Most investors maximised their bags, purchasing over US$1,500 worth of tokens

The SubQuery Seekers Challenge Program
Our Seekers program hit a milestone last month with over 200,000 participants signed up in the first month!
This programme is to show our appreciation to our most valued community members and to help decentralise our token and network. We’re gifting 50 Million SQT to our esteemed community members!
All you have to do is visit seekers.subquery.foundation, register for the campaign, and start exploring the challenges. The more challenges you complete, the more SQT tokens you can earn!
This campaign will be running until 10, April 2024 so you still have lots of time to catch up on the Leaderboard if you’re still new! There will be new challenges coming soon as well.
Our Next Steps in Decentralising our Infrastructure Service
The launch of SQT is the first step in the decentralisation of our innovative decentralised infrastructure service, and is a utility token that powers the SubQuery Network with three main use cases:
- To act as a medium of exchange on the network marketplace;
- To create a reward incentive mechanism for Delegators, Consumers, on and Node Operators (data indexers and RPC providers);
- To facilitate governance within the protocol.
Our Token Generation Event (TGE) will take place in approximately 2 weeks (more on this soon!) and our mainnet will launch on Base by the end of February 2024.
Also coming up we have the exciting addition of RPC node operators to our proficient network of indexers already operating in our decentralised network. SubQuery identified the fundamental issues with existing RPC solutions being expensive, largely centralised, posing high barriers to entry, and resulting in no decentralisation or redundancy for dApp developers.
As laid out in the recently updated SubQuery roadmap, SubQuery is well and truly on track to solve these issues, starting with full RPC support in the Mainnet in February 2024.
SubQuery now Supports over 150 Networks!

Project Boosting to Help Accelerate Network Adoption
Boosting is a new way devised by the SubQuery Network to fund and maintain “Public Good” projects, for example; network dictionaries and the various SubQuery projects that the official Network app runs on. It’s designed to solve the problem of budget efficiency spending when there is low traffic and therefore low budget. It will launch with our mainnet by the end of February, and if you plan to be a consumer of RPC requests, you’ll want to be aware of it.
You can read more about project boosting on our up-to-date documentation here.
