You often hear of many things being described as ‘it’s the Google for X”. But have you ever imagined what a Google for blockchains might look like? That’s what The Graph (GRT) is best known as. The Graph is an indexing protocol. That means it organizes blockchain data through integration with several blockchains. This blockchain protocol employs what we call “subgraphs” to create datasets that can be broadcasted across decentralized applications (dApps). More on this in a moment.
Think of it like this; Google is a search engine for the general internet.
The Graph is like a search engine for Web3 — the new-age version of the internet hosted on multiple blockchains.
