It is with great excitement that we announce the full SubQuery support for Fantom Opera. SubQuery's indexing capabilities empower developers to efficiently manage and query on-chain data, expediting development processes and facilitating rapid iterations, ultimately advancing the goal of onboarding the next billion users to the blockchain.
Fantom Opera, the Fantom mainnet, is a permissionless, open-source framework that allows everyone to engage in the network through staking and governance. The Fantom Opera mainnet is compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) and provides full smart contract support through Solidity.
Now, Fantom developers can take advantage of SubQuery's versatile, high-speed, open, and decentralised data indexing solution, equipping blockchain developers with essential tools for efficiently managing and querying on-chain data for their protocols and applications.
SubQuery simplifies the intricacies of backend operations, providing developers with a tailor-made API. This enables them to focus on product development and enhancing user experiences, without the need to allocate resources towards constructing their indexing solutions.
“ It is great that we are welcoming yet another strong multi-chain indexer to our thriving ecosystem. With this addition, developers can now leverage SubQuery's capabilities to create breakthrough applications within the Fantom ecosystem. We cannot wait to see what visionary creators will bring to life within Fantom in the years to come. ”
— Sam Harcourt, Director of Business Development, Fantom Foundation
We’re always striving to provide developers with the most comprehensive and efficient indexing experience possible, including the open-source SDK, tools, documentation, and developer support that the SubQuery ecosystem provides. Fantom 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.
Furthermore, with the upcoming launch of the SubQuery Network, we are poised to provide Fantom developers with yet another decentralised indexing solution.
“We're thrilled to share the momentous news of SubQuery's data indexing solution being integrated into the Fantom Opera network, creating a seamless symphony of innovation and possibilities. Our objective is to empower visionary developers within the Fantom community, catalyzing a digital revolution that elevates their fundamental mission: the creation of exceptional products poised to propel the web3 industry towards mainstream adoption."
— Sam Zou, Founder and CEO of SubQuery
Why Use SubQuery?
SubQuery makes it easy to build a custom API for your dApp or smart contracts in minutes, providing clean indexed data to any service. The excellent SubQuery developer experience is flexible, with the ability to make external API calls or import external libraries from within your mapping functions, and better controls to run your projects in your own infrastructure with automated DOS (denial of service) mitigation controls. Additionally, we have no plans to sunset our managed service.
SubQuery is designed to be fast. This adds up when you’re indexing millions of ledgers, and is something to consider when choosing your indexer. SubQuery achieves this by using multi-threading and optimisation of the store to reduce costly database writes. With faster sync times, developers can iterate faster and deliver features to market quicker.

SubQuery Seekers Challenge
Within the next 24 hours, we will be introducing a dedicated Fantom quest to the SubQuery Seekers challenge, providing participants with an opportunity to engage with and explore the Fantom blockchain ecosystem.
Fantom is a layer-1 blockchain aiming to provide an alternative to the high costs and low speeds about which users of Ethereum often complain.
Fantom is powered by its native FTM token. Following a $40 million raise, Fantom launched its mainnet, Opera, in December 2019.
The Fantom blockchain partly achieves its speed through a directed acyclic graph (DAG), where blockchain transaction histories are displayed as a “hashgraph”—a graph of blockchain hashes. It’s similar to the technology that powers Hedera Hashgraph.
SubQuery Network is innovating web3 infrastructure with tools that empower builders to decentralise the future. Our fast, flexible, and open data indexer supercharges dApps on over 125 networks, enabling a user-focused web3 world. Soon, our Data Node will provide breakthroughs in the RPC industry, and deliver decentralisation without compromise. We pioneer the web3 revolution for visionaries and forward-thinkers. We’re not just a company — we’re a movement driving an inclusive and decentralised web3 era. Let’s shape the future of web3, together.
