Indexing Use Cases
Brief overview of the possibilities in indexing
In Solana, there are multiple ways to perform a transfer of funds. Due to this reason, it is nearly impossible to extract data directly without introducing layers of complexity before storing a universally pruned format.
For this instance, Account Transfers API was designed on top of our indexers to solve this problem.
In blockchain-based games, perishable activities are generally stored on-chain in order to introduce a decentralised economy. In the midst of this, additional information may be stored in other parts of a transaction (i.e. in a transaction's logs); with our indexers' extensive composability on top of Solana's raw data structures, extraction is possible.
