The Graph


What is The Graph?

TheGraph is a decentralized protocol that enables the indexing and querying of data via open APIs, so-called subgraphs. These subgraphs can be querried by applications via GraphQL and together with Indexers, Curators and Delegators, they form a decentralized data marketplace for the Web3 ecosystem.

The Graph FAQs

What is the incentive to delegate my GRT?


Once you have delegated your GRT, you are contributing to the network's security. In return, you will receive rewards in the form of newly minted GRT. Conversely, if you do not participate in staking, your assets will get diluted over time.

Do I maintain control of my GRT when delegating them?


The indexer you delegate your tokens to is not able to access your funds at any point in time since you are only delegating your staking rights.

When will I receive my rewards?


Rewards are either distributed to delegators every time an indexer closes his/her allocations or they are automatically distributed every 28 days.

Are the rewards directly sent to me?


Your GRT rewards accrue on your account and are automatically re-delegated, so that you can leverage a compounding effect on your funds. Rewards are distributed to delegators every time an indexer closes his/her allocations.

What do I have to do if I want to sell my delegated GRT?


You need to stop the delegation, wait for the unlock period to complete (~28 days), and then withdraw your GRT. Please note that when you are withdrawing your tokens, you have to pay a withdrawal tax. The tax is in place to disincentivize poor decision making that could harm the integrity of the network. You can choose to undelegate any amount of GRT, so you do not need to undelegate the whole amount.

What do I have to do if I want to increase my staking amount?


You can simply delegate more GRT to your indexer via the Network Beta dApp.
