We have recently deployed our custom GraphQl server live to production. Built entirely from the ground up, this server fully powers our Marketplace and, soon, the entire Metaverse. After many months of fighting with the limitations of The Graph, it became apparent that we needed more fine-grained control of our data to serve our ever-expanding eco-system and feature set. Our GraphQl server is always on and always listening to the Blockchain, specifically to our Contracts. It monitors every on-chain transaction we care about and syncs them to a cloud database which, in turn, allows us access to our data speedily and efficiently and includes the flexibility to tailor the queries we need at any time.
