Joining The Graph Network as a Node Operator

Posted by Staked on Aug 28, 2020 10:40:55 AM

Staked is excited to announce that we have joined the The Graph Network incentivized testnet as a node operator. Enabling internet applications that are entirely powered by public infrastructure, The Graph has become the backbone of the burgeoning Ethereum and DeFi ecosystem. Today, a number of projects have built out subgraphs including Uniswap, RAY, Aave, Synthetix, ENS, and more.

The Graph Network decentralizes the query and API layer of Web3, removing a tradeoff dApp developers struggle with today: whether to build an application that is performant or to build an app that is truly decentralized.

Staked is currently participating in The Graph Network incentivized testnet, Mission Control. The testnet is designed to help validate economic design, test security, network capacity and indexer performance in the protocol. In Mission Control, indexers operate Graph Nodes and stake GRT to index and serve blockchain data, curators signal on subgraphs and stake GRT to indicate to Indexers which subgraphs are high-quality and should be indexed, and node operators compete as indexers that are rewarded based on contribution.

Staked is supported by a highly available and secure backend infrastructure. We use Kubernetes to distribute across five clouds with automated failover, and have never been slashed or had extended downtime in 3 years of operating POS blockchain nodes. Our technical infrastructure has been audited by security and DevOps teams at the leading protocols, exchanges, and custodians.
