Cloud Blockchains: The Google of Blockchain with Nader Dabit

Google uses automated programs called spiders, or crawlers, to index and rank web pages. Then, when a user searches for something, it uses a special algorithm to determine the order of results to display (howstuffworks). This process, of course, applies to web pages on the internet.

There are 2 major projects, worked on by the company Edge & Node, that do what Google does for the web, but for the blockchain. The first is called The Graph, which is an indexing protocol for organizing blockchain data and making it easily accessible. The second is Everest, a universally shared projects registry of onchain data.

In this episode we talk to Nader Dabit, Developer Relations Engineer at Edge & Node.
