Today, we are excited to announce SubQuery's partnership with Archway, a Cosmos SDK-based chain. SubQuery's indexing support will empower developers building on Archway to easily query their deployed smart contracts and reward them for their contributions. This partnership is a crucial milestone for SubQuery and Archway, advancing the growth and adoption of Web3 technologies within the Cosmos ecosystem.

This collaboration opens up opportunities for developers to seamlessly index and query their deployed smart contracts on Archway using SubQuery's advanced indexing capabilities. By joining forces, we aim to enhance the developer experience and foster innovation within the Archway ecosystem. Additionally, developers using SubQuery on Archway will have the unique opportunity to be rewarded for their contributions, further incentivising the creation of cutting-edge decentralised applications.

“With a mission to help propel dapp developers forward, SubQuery provides developers easy access to on-chain data, enabling developers to conduct fast and efficient in-depth analysis. Their data retrieval tooling seamlessly complements Archway’s developer-first mission. We look forward to continuously providing prime developer experience to drive greater innovation and adoption of the Archway ecosystem, with SubQuery as an integral part of the Archway community.”  
— Griffin Anderson, Founder of the Archway Protocol

As part of this integration, SubQuery has developed a proof of concept project that indexes all Archway contract metadata, including all rewards paid out to contract developers. This integration showcases the power of SubQuery in efficiently indexing real-world on-chain data for production applications. It serves as an excellent starting point for developers looking to build their own Archway applications using SubQuery. You can see the example project here and follow along with a quick start guide here.

“By combining our advanced indexing capabilities with Archway's seamless smart contract execution, we empower developers to unlock the full potential of their deployed contracts. With rewards for contributions and a focus on innovation, we help drive the growth of dApps within the Archway ecosystem, solidifying our commitment to enhancing developer experiences and propelling the Cosmos ecosystem forward.”
— Sam Zou, Founder and CEO of SubQuery

Why Use SubQuery?

SubQuery is the leading Indexer in Tendermint based networks with deep support for the Wasm smart contract layer (used by Archway). Archway developers can now enjoy superior indexing capabilities offered by SubQuery, including access to the open-source SDK, comprehensive tools, extensive documentation, and dedicated developer support within the SubQuery ecosystem. Archway is also fully supported by SubQuery's enterprise level managed service,  ensuring robust infrastructure hosting and handling hundreds of millions of daily requests.

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 actively working towards decentralising and tokenizing the protocol to establish the SubQuery Network. This network will provide incentivized and verifiable indexing and data servicing to the global community, supporting indexing of projects from Archway and other supported Layer-1 blockchains. By integrating Archway projects into the SubQuery Network, we aim to enhance data accessibility, incentivize collaboration, and drive innovation within the Archway ecosystem and other Layer-1 networks.

SubQuery’s Support for Archway

Getting Started with SubQuery and Archway

The best way is to start by following our step by step guide using a real world example project. Follow our quick start tutorial to see how to index all Archway contract metadata as well as all rewards paid out to contract developers in only 15 minutes.

With SubQuery’s Archway integration, there are three types of mapping handlers:

  • BlockHandler: This runs a mapping function each and every block
  • TransactionHandler: Captures all transactions and their hash, height, and timestamp
  • MessageHandler: On each and every message that matches optional filter criteria, run a mapping function
  • EventHanders: On each and every event that matches optional filter criteria, run a mapping function

We’ve updated the SubQuery Documentation to add Archway specific information to the general SubQuery documentation.

The integration of Archway with SubQuery is now live and available for production use by projects within the network. We are actively collaborating with a select group of customers to test and optimise this integration. If you are interested in becoming an Archway launch partner with SubQuery, please don't hesitate to contact us at

About Archway

Archway is an incentivized L1 blockchain that allows developers to capture the value their dApps create, enabling sustainable economic models. This has never been more important as the global blockchain space stands on the precipice of technological commoditization. Archway aims to provide developers with a more equitable distribution of value and opportunities to build self-sustainable dapps, while simultaneously benefiting from the value they bring to the network. By introducing two new modules to the Cosmos SDK, the Protocol distributes a portion of gas fees and inflation, as well as a smart contract premium, to developers. Archway provides developers and dapp creators the remuneration avenues they deserve.

About SubQuery

SubQuery is a blockchain developer toolkit facilitating the construction of Web3 applications of the future. A SubQuery project is a complete API to organize and query data from Layer-1 chains. Currently servicing Ethereum, Polygon, BNB, NEAR, Polkadot, Avalanche, Algorand, Arbitrum, Gnosis Chain, 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 decentralized manner.
