The Polkadot Indexer is an API application powered by the Bison Trails platform to enable a more efficient way to query data from the Polkadot blockchain and its canary network, Kusama.
With the Polkadot Indexer, users have access to structured and easily queryable data with a significantly fewer number of requests. The Indexer may save anywhere from 50-100 to upward of a 1000 requests to the node.
All the data outputs are served from a single API for ease of use.
The Polkadot Indexer saves engineering teams from having to build and maintain proprietary Indexers in-house, saving time and resources while enabling more optimized participation through access to structured data.
Standard blockchain clients are able to look up certain types of data, but they do not provide easy access to information in a way that may be important for your business, such as querying all the transactions from a specific account.
In the near future, we will be offering a Blockchain Reporting API for eth2 focused on providing clean and actionable data over a queryable API for types of queries that will not be supported by standard eth2 clients.
Bison Trails is a blockchain infrastructure platform-as-a-service (PaaS) company based in New York City. We built a platform for anyone who wants to participate in
22 new chains effortlessly.
We also make it easy for anyone building Web 3.0 applications to connect to blockchain data from
30 protocols with Query & Transact (QT). Our goal is for the entire blockchain ecosystem to flourish by providing robust infrastructure for the pioneers of tomorrow.
In January, 2021, we announced Bison Trails joined Coinbase to accelerate our mission to provide easy-to-use blockchain infrastructure, now as a standalone product line. The Bison Trails platform will continue to support our customers. With Coinbase’s backing, we will enhance our infrastructure platform and make it even easier to participate in decentralized networks and build applications that connect to blockchain data.
