Earn The Graph Staking Rewards with Figment

The Graph is an indexing protocol for organizing and efficiently accessing data from blockchains and storage networks using GraphQL, accelerating blockchain application development.

Indexers are node operators that index data and serve queries in a query market. The Graph is currently being used in a centralized way by most of the popular Ethereum applications.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Graph’s native token, GRT, is a staking token for indexing, curating, and participating in on-chain governance. GRT is also used to pay for queries from The Graph network. When you delegate GRT, 0.5% of your delegation will be burned.

Initially, GRT was staked to earn new issuance (“inflationary”) subsidies. It means that the GRT supply will increase and stakers will capture the newly issued GRT. Stakers will also capture fees from network transactions, and as the Graph transaction volume increases, GRT stakers will earn more than new issuance subsidies. The GRT token also gives stakers the right to vote on policy decisions on how the Graph will operate and distribute treasury funds.

From the moment you initiate the unbonding process, it takes 28 days to unstake. During this time you will not earn rewards. When the process is complete, you can transfer/trade your GRT tokens.

The Graph staking rewards and transfers began when The Graph mainnet launched on December 17, 2020.

Staking rewards are settled by the indexer, which could take up to 28 days, depending on the indexer’s policy. Figment does this every Friday. The indexer does not hold delegator staking rewards at any point in time -the protocol handles this entirely.

Yes, if your indexer does not perform optimally, you will not earn fees. There are two ways this can happen. Specifically, an Indexer that fails to respond quickly to query requests will lose fee capture opportunities. Indexers that price queries too high will not be selected. More broadly, an Indexer that does not index high-traffic subgraphs will not be an optimal earner.

No, your delegated GRT cannot be destroyed. However, when you initially delegate GRT, 0.5% of your delegation will be burned.

New GRT is issued at an annual rate of 3% of the total supply. An estimated 1% of query fees will be burned, any unclaimed rebate rewards and the 0.5% delegator deposit tax will be burned as well.

Figment has partnerships with a number of top-in-class custodians. Please contact sales@figment.io for inquiries. The Graph protocol takes control of your GRT tokens while you are staking.

The Graph will use on-chain governance to change key parameters, economic and otherwise. Read about The Graph Foundation here and about The Graph Council here.
