As an EEA member, Edge & Node is part of the EEA community of organizations working to advance Ethereum and drive adoption in the industry. In the following Q&A, the EUA interviewed Kyle Rojas, Edge & Node’s Business Development and Partnerships, on how the organization contributes to the ecosystem to help Ethereum reach its full potential.
Please briefly introduce yourself and your company.
We create and support protocols and dApps that empower individuals and advance humanity. I lead business development and partnerships for Edge & Node, the original team behind The Graph, an indexing protocol for organizing blockchain data and making it easily accessible. The Graph is an indexing protocol for querying networks like Ethereum and IPFS with 32 built-in chains from across the Web3 landscape. Anyone can create and publish open APIs called subgraphs to make data easily accessible. The Graph will allow the world to iteratively move into a more decentralized future. As an EEA member, Edge & Node can collaborate with EEA and its members, the leading business adopters, innovators and leaders within the Ethereum ecosystem, on Ethereum advances like The Graph that accelerate the pace of Ethereum business progress and adoption.
What drew you to the EEA and why did you decide to become a member?
The EEA’s mission of enabling businesses to adopt and use Ethereum technology aligns with ours. We work to empower the world to build better APIs and dApps that will improve businesses, lives, and human interactions overall. The Edge & Node team will have the opportunity to participate in business events such as Ethereum in the Enterprise and EEA’s Educational Series, which bring together the best of Ethereum and global business leaders, technologists and industry experts to learn about the latest business and technical innovations from to learn about Ethereum.
How will the EEA improve your organisation’s current efforts?
The EEA’s working groups, such as CrossChain Interoperability, Ethereum Training Quality, and others, and interest groups, such as DeFi, Eth2 for the Enterprise, Ethereum Mainnet, and others, provide key touchpoints for our team to help our team stay abreast of Ethereum’s advances to stay up to date. Our network, in turn, includes thousands of developers working on 1,000+ projects across 50+ chains, so we are also able to be a super connector to share our advances with the broader EEA membership and the Ethereum business community at large to pass on .
