In the trilemma of scalability, decentralization and security, Gnosis is committed to decentralization. It’s why we emphasize the importance of having a geographically diverse set of validators, why the barrier to entry is set at only 1 $GNO, and why the process is user-friendly. Other key metrics, beyond designing a decentralized base layer, are ensuring that developers can easily build dapps on top of the network. This is exactly why we’re so excited about The Graph Network’s decentralized indexing for Gnosis Chain.
As the indexing and query layer of web3, The Graph enables developers to build dapps more easily on over 35 networks, including chains like Gnosis Chain and Ethereum, using GraphQL. Anyone can build and publish open APIs, called subgraphs, which makes accessing and using blockchain data much easier, not to mention open and permissionless
Centralized APIs can shut down or kick you off at any time, whereas subgraphs on The Graph Network are decentralized, so your dapp doesn't have to rely on the whims of third parties to continue pulling blockchain data. The Graph Network's decentralized pool of Indexers are always ready—there's a redundancy of nodes constantly serving queries!
Big news, dapp developers! You can soon publish Gnosis subgraphs to The Graph Network! Add a layer of robustness, security, and reliability, and make your Gnosis dApp unstoppable by decentralizing its data layer. If you're already using a subgraph on The Graph's hosted service, you can prepare to migrate it to The Graph's decentralized network—reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how to get started!
P.S. – the first subgraph indexing Gnosis Chain data has already migrated to The Graph’s decentralized network—Connext has completed migration of their Gnosis subgraph.
