During ETHCC in Paris, last month The Cryptonomist interviewed Eva Beylin, Director of The Graph Foundation. With Eva we talked about DeFi, dApps and the GRT crypto. Will the indexing of decentralized protocols reach the same level of search engines like google and yahoo in the next few years? Long-term decentralized indexing protocols will surpass search engines and current data providers, as crypto protocols encompass all kinds of event, identity and transaction data that current web companies don’t have. The nature of blockchains and protocols is they will behave more like the infrastructure of the new internet than companies or servers, and thus all aspects of our lives – our transactions, identity, art, updates in status will be accessible, that are part of a massive knowledge graph. What advantages can the connection between The Graph and new emerging artificial intelligence tools bring? Currently core contributors of The Graph use AI to support simulation and research of our protocol. The Graph also has the means to become the marketplace for accessing blockchain data for AI tooling, for example you could imagine using Indexers to operate LLMs and selling data to users. How will the on-chain data market evolve in the coming years and what are the main challenges to face? The on-chain data market will evolve to be much more user-data driven as more social, gaming and interactive dapps proliferate. We’re already seeing the growth of on-chain ‘twitter’ replacements, so the nature of data will change along with these use cases. I anticipate we will also see more desire for granular and complex data, such as block explorers, advanced DeFi dashboards and more. Lastly, I think the way on-chain data is consumed will also change the more that people are educated about crypto across other industries worldwide.
