SubQuery Network Announces Launch of First Decentralized RPCs for Polkadot and Kusama
ZyCrypto -

SubQuery Network, a Web3 infrastructure provider, has recently introduced two new RPCs for the Polkadot ecosystem. Available for Polkadot and Kusama, they are the first decentralized RPCs to be made available on the Substrate-based networks.

SubQuery offers Web3 infrastructure for nearly 200 networks. The SubQuery Network operates as a globally distributed network consisting of decentralized indexers and RPC providers. These enable dapps to effortlessly access secure and efficient blockchain data whenever needed without the need for centralized control. Developers working on Polkadot and Kusama can now take advantage of SubQuery’s deployed decentralized RPC nodes.

SubQuery COO James Bayly said: “We are thrilled to be the first to provide decentralized RPCs for Polkadot on the SubQuery Network. Our node operators are already running RPCs and other nodes in multiple ecosystems, and, having emerged from the Polkadot ecosystem, we’re ideally placed to support Polkadot developers with their infrastructure.”

Over 30 independent Node Operators operate the Polkadot RPCs deployed for the Polkadot relay chain and Kusama. Decentralized RPCs play a crucial role in facilitating the smooth operation of blockchain projects and accessing data from various sources.

RPCs are crucial in enabling seamless communication between blockchain nodes and external entities. They facilitate important functions such as data retrieval, smart contract interactions, and transaction submissions. Decentralized RPCs liberate dapps from the shackles of centralized middleware and the associated risks. SubQuery Network enables decentralized RPCs that ensure secure and efficient web3 communication. This feature is crucial for ensuring the strong and transparent functioning necessary for the prosperity of DePINs.


SubQuery emerged in the Polkadot ecosystem, introducing an indexer seamlessly connecting to its distinctive multi-chain architecture. It has expanded its reach to include hundreds of networks, establishing itself as a prominent indexer of web3 data supported by various chains.
