The core team of Subsquid has announced the release of a Python-based indexing SDK, built on top of their decentralized data lake by the blockchain data platform DipDup. The SDK enables developers to build modular and extensible Web3 APIs and data pipelines for popular dApp use cases and analytics.
Now, developers can utilize the DipDup platform to retrieve data from any EVM network supported by Subsquid’s decentralized data lake. This is the first time an extensible indexing stack in Python has been developed for EVM chains.
Subsquid Network is a ZK-secured decentralized data lake and query engine, designed to provide developers with permissionless access to on-chain data. The most popular way to retrieve data from Subsquid Network is using an indexing SDK, including the TypeScript-based Squid SDK, and more recently Subgraph SDK.
The addition of DipDup SDK is a major improvement for many developers, not just for its flexibility and modularity but also because it is a Python-based SDK. Python is the preferred language for a major segment of Web3 developers, and most data analysts. The DipDup framework comes from the team at Baking Bad, an industry-leading development house that builds and scales blockchain explorers, developer tools and DeFi products across multiple ecosystems, and in particular Tezos, Celestia, Ethereum, and L2s, including Starknet.
“Baking Bad is one of the most capable teams in the crypto space when it comes to anything indexing or data related. They’ve really proven this fact with DipDup. I can’t think of a better partner for us to build the best indexing tools that leverage the data provided by Subsquid Network,” writes Dmitry Zhelezov, CEO and co-founder of Subsquid.
Michael Zaikin, CTO of Baking Bad and DipDup shares the sentiment: “Working with the Subsquid data lake is like a breath of fresh air for developers: it’s intuitive, really fast, and does not cost you a fortune. The team is exceptional, possessing a clear vision and robust technical expertise to bring it to life. We’re extremely proud to be partners, contributing to the foundation of the web3 data retrievability layer alongside them.”
Updates on decentralized python indexing will be shared on the official Subsquid and DipDup X feeds. Anybody interested in getting data from Subsquid’s decentralized data lake can get started in their official documentation.
