The Graph is a decentralized protocol for indexing and querying data from blockchains, starting with Ethereum. It makes it possible to query data that is difficult to query directly. Blockchain properties like finality, chain reorganizations, or uncled blocks make it not just time consuming but conceptually hard to index and retrieve correct query results from blockchain data. The Graph solves this today with a hosted service that indexes blockchain data. These indexes (""subgraphs"") can then be queried with a standard GraphQL API.

Storing The Graph and other digital assets requires a wallet, but don’t worry: Bitvavo’s hosted wallet allows you to store The Graph without any technical knowledge. Here is a brief overview of the existing wallet options to store your The Graph:
Hosted wallets are wallets where the private keys to your The Graph are managed by a third party such as Bitvavo. Access to your account is protected by a password and other advanced security features. Once you are logged in, you can easily and conveniently manage your The Graph online. Bitvavo offers standard hosted wallets for all digital assets that are offered on the platform.
A software wallet is a program installed on your computer or other device in order to use and manage your The Graph. Using a software wallet gives you full control over your private keys, so you are not dependent on third parties. The risk is that you alone are in charge of the security of your The Graph, and if malicious parties have access to your device, your private keys (and therefore your The Graph) can be stolen.
A hardware wallet is a physical device on which you can store your The Graph offline. It is one of the safest ways to store your The Graph, because the private keys are stored on a separate and offline device. Access to this device is often protected by a password. In many ways, a hardware wallet can be compared to a safe in which your The Graph is stored.
You can use Bitvavo's hosted wallet to easily store, send and receive The Graph. Once you have purchased The Graph on Bitvavo, you can choose to send your The Graph from your Bitvavo wallet to your own software or hardware wallet.
