The Graph is an indexing protocol for organizing and accessing data from blockchains and storage networks.
The Graph aims to help the next generation of dApp developers build software that keeps users in control of their data.
The Graph was founded in 2018 by Yaniv Tal, Brandon Ramirez and Jannis Pohlmann. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, California.
The Graph supports indexing data from 26 different blockchain networks, including Ethereum, Near, Arbitrium, Optimism, Polygon, Avalanche, Celo, Fantom, Moonbeam and IPFS. So far, its subgraphs are used by Uniswap, Synthetix, KnownOrigin, Gnosis, Balancer, Livepeer, DAOstack, Audius and Decentraland.
The Graph queries are processed on a decentralized network that ensures that data remains open and that dApps can continue to run no matter what. The Graph protocol also allows developers to build decentralized applications on Ethereum and IPFS using a GraphQL API.
The Graph is backed by Tiger Global, Coinbase Ventures, Digital Currency Group, Blockwall Digital, Fenbushi Capital, Multicoin Capital. Framework, ParaFi Capital, FinTech Collective, and others. The company raised $50M in a new round on Jan 21, 2022. This brings The Graph's total funding to $69.6M to date.
