Messari wants to encourage creative use of our subgraph data both to build applications and derive insights. We’ve integrated subgraphs for over 20 different DeFi protocols across 10 networks. We’ve grouped these protocols into 3 different categories (DEXes, Lending, Yield), each with a standardized schema that’s common to all subgraphs in that category. This should make it very easy for you to access data across different subgraphs in the same category.

- Second Prize: $1000
- Third Prize: $500

Cryptocurrency logo

Users’ activity is an important piece of data that we have always been eager to display between our dApps. We believe that this data must be indexed in a decentralized and open platform as TheGraph is to leverage the usage and to allow anyone to obtain high-level data quality. We use Ethereum and Polygon networks so we already know that two subgraphs must be deployed but may use the same code. Some examples of what we expect to have are:
Order/Bid creation, execution, cancelation
NFTs transfers
MANA Transfers
Deposit/Withdraw MANA between Ethereum and Polygon
Delegate MANA (snapshot VP)
Publish a collection in Polygon
Buy an item (primary sales)
Mint an item
Assign managers to your collection
A collection being approved
Bonus track: Consider adding “weight” to each event type so we can easily create a user ranking on top of that.
There is an insight challenge too where you can propose and execute your own idea that will be useful for Decentraland.
Subgraph Challenge
Best app built on top of our subgraphs
First Prize: $9000
