The Graph (GRT) is now available to trade on the Voyager app!
The Graph describes itself as an indexing protocol for querying networks like Ethereum. Anyone can build and publish open APIs, called subgraphs, making data easily accessible.
After several iterations, The Graph went live in 2020 and is sometimes referred to as the “google of blockchains” because of its use of database indexing. Indexing allows for the quick retrieval of data between blockchains, a process that would otherwise be tedious, time-consuming, and maybe even costly. Performing these indexing tasks can also be called ingestion services because it involves ingesting all of the data to provide the singular request or task.
As you can imagine, a service that compiles and has this much access to blockchain data requires a serious level of trust between parties. The Graph aims to decentralize the query layer of this process involving APIs, adding the core trustless factor that is so central to the DeFi mission.
You can learn more about The Graph on their website.

All investments involve risk and the past performance of a digital asset or other financial product does not guarantee future results or returns. Cryptocurrencies are highly speculative in nature, involve a high degree of risk and can rapidly and significantly decrease in value. It is reasonably possible for the value of Cryptocurrencies to decrease to zero or near zero. While diversification may help spread risk, it does not assure a profit or protect against loss. Investors should consider their investment objectives and risks carefully before investing. Previous gains may not be representative of the experience of other customers and are not guarantees of future performance or success.
