Jeff Horseman got into journalism because he liked to write and stunk at math. He grew up in Vermont and he honed his interviewing skills as a supermarket cashier by asking Bernie Sanders “Paper or plastic?” After graduating from Syracuse University in 1999, Jeff began his journalistic odyssey at The Watertown Daily Times in upstate New York, where he impressed then-U.S. Senate candidate Hillary Clinton so much she called him “John” at the end of an interview. From there, he went to Annapolis, Maryland, where he covered city, county and state government at The Capital newspaper. Today, Jeff writes about anything and everything. Along the way, Jeff has covered wildfires, a tropical storm, 9/11 and the Dec. 2 terror attack in San Bernardino. If you have a question or story idea about politics or the inner workings of government, please let Jeff know. He’ll do his best to answer, even if it involves a little math.

Today, Flare, a blockchain for data, revealed that Subsquid, a worldwide network that offers free, quick, and decentralized data access to developers and the apps they create, has incorporated Flare. Developers using the Subsquid network may now access historical data on the Flare blockchain thanks to the integration.

With an open-source SDK, specialized data lakes for on-chain data, and a hosted service, Subsquid is a full-stack blockchain indexing solution. Through Subsquid’s distributed data lake, developers creating decentralized apps may access vast amounts of historical on-chain data by connecting to the Flare blockchain.

Subsquid’s data lake, a repository for storing and processing massive volumes of structured and unstructured data, comprises 5,000 projects and handles more than 30 billion queries with the goal of becoming Web3’s biggest decentralized data lake.

A fully customizable ETL query stack is included in the open-source Subsquid SDK, which is useful for indexing events, transactions, and traces. The SDK allows developers to create unique data pipelines and application programming interfaces (APIs) that access the ecosystem’s data. Additionally, external API calls are accessible, enabling developers to aggregate data from Flare APIs using the Subsquid SDK.

Commenting on Subsquid’s open-source approach to data accessibility, Flare Co-Founder and CEO Hugo Philion said, “As we look to provide developers with the best possible tools, we have been very impressed with Subsquid’s commitment to open source approach and the speed of the indexing system they have built from the ground up.”

“We are thrilled to bring Flare into our decentralized data lake, serving as a data provider in the ecosystem and enabling developers to rapidly and permissionlessly retrieve data from the network without having to use an archive node,” said XX from Subsquid, adding that both parties are looking forward to collaborating on multiple developer engagement initiatives.
