Today, we are excited to announce full SubQuery support for zkSync Era. SubQuery's indexing capabilities empower zkSync Era 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.
zkSync Era is an Ethereum layer-2 scaling solution utilizing ZK-rollup technology for enhanced speed, cost-efficiency, and security in transactions
Now, zkSync Era 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.
Macro Cora, senior vice president of business and operations at Matter Labs said: "We’re on a mission to accelerate the mass adoption of crypto for personal freedom, and to do so it is critical that we create the most optimal environment for users and builders alike. SubQuery is an exciting addition to the zkSync Era ecosystem for developers, as it equips them with critical tools to gain greater insights based on on-chain data. This in turn empowers them to make better decisions for the operations and growth of their applications."
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. zkSync Era 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 zkSync Era developers with yet another decentralised indexing solution.
“We are pleased to unveil the seamless integration of SubQuery's data indexing solution into the zkSync Era platform. Our unwavering commitment is to empower developers within the zkSync Era community, enabling them to concentrate on their primary duties: crafting exceptional products and elevating the overall user experience.”
— 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.

About zkSync Era
zkSync Era is an Ethereum layer-2 scaling solution that employs ZK-rollup technology to enable faster, cheaper, and more secure transactions at scale.
zkSync Era offers a unique combination of native account abstraction, privacy and speed of ZK-rollup, Ethereum-level security, and EVM compatibility, making it a promising solution for Ethereum scaling and ZK-based smart contract development.
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 Ethereum, Polygon, Polkadot, Cosmos, Algorand, NEAR, and Avalanche 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.
