The Graph - What is it and why?
STARL Market has implemented The Graph. Below is an explanation of it and why it is an important part of our project.

What is The Graph?

The Graph can be thought of as the Google of blockchain.
The Graph is an indexing protocol for querying networks like Ethereum and IPFS. Anyone can build open APIs, called subgraphs, making data easily accessible. Subgraphs can be composed into a global graph of all the world's public information. This data can be transformed, organized, and shared across applications for anyone to query with just a few keystrokes.
Rather than us building APIs for our use only, we have published public APIs, using The Graph that anyone can access and use to fetch data for themselves.
The Graph is a fully decentralized service, as it lives on the Ethereum blockchain, so it has all the benefits that comes with that.

What are we using The Graph for?

We currently use it for the SATEs contract. We pull back all details about each SATE, including properties, bid history, prices, auction details, trades and much more.

If you click through the ‘schema’ you can see all the fields that are available
Living Module NFTs will be next and will be added to the subgraph as a new contract.
User Profiles are totally separate to The Graph.
