Today we’re excited to announce our indexing support for Optimism! Optimism is a Layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum, specifically focused on improving scalability and reducing transaction fees.
SubQuery’s flexible, fast, open, and decentralised data indexing solution provides blockchain developers with the tools needed to easily organise and query on-chain data for their protocol and applications. Abstracting the backend, SubQuery provides a custom API and lets developers focus on product development and user experience rather than building their own indexing solutions.
We’re always striving to provide developers with the most comprehensive and efficient indexing solutions possible. Despite being a beta release, SubQuery has already proven to be faster than The Graph on Ethereum and its layer-2s, offering Optimism developers another decentralised alternative with the impending launch of the SubQuery Network.
Optimism developers will benefit from the superior SubQuery indexing experience, including the open-source SDK, tools, documentation, and developer support that the SubQuery ecosystem provides. Optimism is also supported in SubQuery’s enterprise level managed service, which provides enterprise level infrastructure hosting and handles hundreds of millions of requests each day.
"We're excited about our collaboration with Optimism, a leading Layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum. By integrating our robust data indexing capabilities with Optimism's innovative technology, we're empowering developers to build a wide range of blockchain applications that can scale efficiently and offer improved user experiences. This collaboration represents a significant step towards creating a decentralized future that is inclusive and offers interoperable solutions for various sectors, including DeFi, gaming, NFTs, and more." - Sam Zou, Founder and CEO of SubQuery
Our experience with customers across all verticals in Ethereum, Polygon, Polkadot, Cosmos, Algorand, NEAR and Avalanche (such as wallets, networks, explorers, NFT, DeFi, scanners, etc.) has helped us build the best Indexer for Developers in web3.
SubQuery is currently focused on decentralising and tokenizing the protocol to build the SubQuery Network. The SubQuery Network will index and service data from projects to the global community in an incentivized and verifiable way and support indexing Optimism projects, and those from any other supported Layer-1 from the outset.
The Optimism integration is live and ready to be used in production by projects across the network.

Optimism is a Layer2 protocol that is intended to help Ethereum users speed up and pay less fees for transactions made on the Ethereum network. To achieve this, Optimism works based on a technology known as “Optimistic Rollups”.
SubQuery is a blockchain developer toolkit facilitating the construction of Web3 applications of the future. A SubQuery project is a complete API to organise and query data from Layer-1 chains. Currently servicing Ethereum, Polygon, BNB, NEAR, Polkadot, Avalanche, Algorand, Cosmos and Flare projects, this data-as-a-service allows developers to focus on their core use case and front-end without wasting time building a custom backend for data processing activities. In the future, the SubQuery Network intends to replicate this scalable and reliable solution in a completely decentralised manner.
