The founding members of The Graph originally started out as The Graph Protocol, Inc. In the early years,they developed the protocol and created the framework for the project to become a decentralized indexing protocol for Web3. The commitment to their own vision of decentralization was reinforced by the creation of The Graph Foundation, to which they handed over many of their own responsibilities when The Graph Foundation was inaugurated. The Graph Protocol, Inc ceased to exist and became Edge & Node, with the original team still in place. The Graph project still benefits from the strong support, dedication and leadership of the original team to help The Graph succeed. As such, they remain a critical member of the decentralized network that helps grow and mature the project and drive adoption of The Graph in the decentralized Web3 ecosystem.
