James Bayly is the COO of SubQuery and onfinality which are basically data service providers focussing on non-EVM chains such as Polkadot and Cosmos.
In this conversation we talk about indexing blockchain data and making it available for users and apps to query in a manner that’s cost efficient, quick, and reliable. We also touch on the modern evolution of blockchains, the blockchain trilemma, and creating a Web3 data marketplace.
