Today we’re pleased to announce additional support for the Optimism network with our integration of the Goerli Testnet. Since our announcement that we support Optimism, it was only natural to extend SubQuery’s support to Arbitrum’s testnet environment to support developers with both testing and production applications.
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.
If you are an existing user of The Graph, you can follow the guide here to migrate your project to SubQuery and supercharge your indexing today. The migration from a SubGraph to a SubQuery Project is (by design) easy and quick. It may take you an hour or two to complete the migration, depending on the complexity of your SubGraph.
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.

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 leading blockchain data indexer that provides developers with fast, flexible, universal and decentralised APIs for web3 projects. We empower developers from over 100+ ecosystems including Optimism with rich indexed data to allow them to build intuitive and immersive decentralised applications. This blockchain developer toolkit enables developers to focus on their core use case and front-end without wasting time building a custom backend for data processing activities. In the near future, the SubQuery Network will replicate this scalable and reliable solution in a completely decentralised manner.
