What are the incentives for Indexers to participate in the network?

In order to ensure the decentralization of The Graph Network, different incentives are given to network participants. These are the incentives for Indexers:

Indexing rewards

Curators stake GRT in order to signal to Indexers which subgraphs are of a high-quality and should accordingly be indexed in the network. Based on the curation signal, Indexers select subgraphs and index their contents. The indexing rewards for doing so are generated via a 3% annual protocol wide inflation. The rewards are distributed to all Indexers who are providing subgraphs developments for the network proportional to the amount of their indexing work.

See the documentation on Reward and fee distribution to learn more when and how indexing rewards and query fees are distributed:
