Before trading any crypto assets it is important to understand the risks. This overview summarizes certain risks associated with GRT.

Token Description & Project Background
The Graph is an indexing protocol used to query data from public networks such as the Ethereum blockchain and the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS).
The protocol gives users the ability to build and publish their own unique application programming interface (API) known as a “subgraph.” These subgraphs are used to retrieve blockchain data. The indexers validate information on the protocol by performing indexing and query services for specific subgraphs.
GRT is the Graph network’s native (ERC-20) token. It’s used to incentivize a decentralized collective of computer (node) operators, called “indexers,” to process queries, stakeing GRTs along the way.
The Graph was founded in 2017 by American entrepreneur Yaniv Tal.
Tal graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California in 2010.
In February 2013, Yaniv Tal founded TapSavvy, where he served as the CEO. In September 2016, Yaniv Tal founded Workflo, Inc. in San Francisco and assumed the role of CEO.
