Today we’re excited to announce support for our next Layer-2 scaling solution: Arbitrum. From today, Arbitrum developers on both Arbitrum One and Arbitrum Nova can benefit from the superior SubQuery indexing experience, including our open source SDK, managed service, upcoming decentralised network, and developer support that the SubQuery ecosystem provides.
Arbitrum (both One and Nova) are leading Ethereum Layer-2 scaling solution developed by Offchain Labs. An Optimistic Rollup, Arbitrum One provides ultra-fast, low-cost transactions with security derived from Ethereum. Alternatively, Arbitrum Nova is ideal for gaming, metaverse and socialfi projects, enabling instant confirmation and <$0.01 transactions with minimal trust assumptions. Launched in August 2021, the Arbitrum One mainnet beta is EVM-compatible to the bytecode level and has 65%+ TVL in the L2 segment. 400+ DeFi and NFT projects are live in the ecosystem to date. Since August 2022, Arbitrum One upgraded to Nitro tech stack, enabling fraud proofs over the core engine of Geth compiled to WASM, and Arbitrum Nova has been the home for Reddit community token holders from r/Cryptocurrency and r/FortniteBR.
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 Arbitrum developers another decentralised alternative with the impending launch of the SubQuery Network. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our latest integration with one of the most exciting Layer-2 scaling solutions in the Web3 space.
"We are ecstatic to welcome the SubQuery team into the Arbitrum family. We love working with teams that give Arbinauts more tools to build the newest applications and it's really good to see support from SubQuery for both Arbitrum One and Arbitrum Nova at launch. Developers in Arbitrum can now choose from one more leading data indexer, we look forward to seeing what they build next!" - Nina Rong, Partnership Manager at OffchainLabs
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 are thrilled to announce our integration with Arbitrum, a powerful layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum. By integrating our state-of-the-art data indexing technology with Arbitrum's blockchain platform, we are enabling developers to build innovative applications that can leverage the enhanced scalability and reduced transaction costs offered by Arbitrum. This integration showcases our commitment to providing accurate, reliable, and up-to-date data insights to support the growth of the ecosystem. Together, we are shaping a future that is accessible and efficient for all." — Sam Zou, Founder and CEO of SubQuery
Arbitrum developers can use SubQuery to index any data they want to power their applications and scale them to the next million developers. Unlike other indexers, SubQuery launches on day one with support for both Arbitrum One and Arbitrum Nova, providing complete support for all Arbinauts 👩🚀👨🚀. Arbitrum 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.
Since our founding in 2021, SubQuery has established itself as the leading data indexing solution for non-EVM chains and has achieved rapid growth by serving hundreds of millions of queries each day to leading projects within Cosmos, Polkadot, Algorand, NEAR, Avalanche, and Moonbeam. The success in Polkadot spurred SubQuery to integrate with other layer-1 and layer-2 blockchains to become a truly universal solution.
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 Arbitrum projects, and those from any other supported networks from the outset.
The Arbitrum integration is live and ready to be used in production by projects across the network. We’re working closely with a few select customers to test and optimise this integration — if you would like to join SubQuery as an Arbitrum launch partner or receive help migrating from The Graph, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.

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, Arbitrum, 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.
