Following a successful mainnet launch on Ethereum in December, The Graph is exploring integrating eight additional Layer-1 blockchains including Bitcoin.
On Feb. 16, The Graph Foundation revealed it is also considering integrating Bitcoin, Polkadot, Near Protocol, Cosmos, Solana, Avalanche, Binance Smart Chain, and Celo.
The protocol already runs on Ethereum having launched on Dec. 17, 2020, and supports the InterPlanetary File System — a peer-to-peer network for storing and sharing data. The Graph has also recently integrated with several DeFi protocols including Uniswap, AAVE, Decentraland, Gnosis, Balancer, and Synthetix.
The Graph, announced in July 2018, allows programmers to build Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) — which it calls subgraphs, to extract blockchain data for decentralized applications built on Web 3.0. The project’s primary goal is to allow developers to easily access on-chain data and build dApps.
The Graph Foundation’s director, Eva Beylin, stated that further chain integrations are a key part of unlocking the next wave of innovation on the decentralized internet, adding:
