The Graph protocol for/on Cardano

Hello Forum,

I’ve learned recently about ‘The Graph’ token. It’s like a Google for blockchain indexing data for use in smart contracts to make smart contracts not rely on centralized data. I found the following video very helpful:

The Graph protocol seems very exciting. But it got me to thinking:

  1. Would the The graph benefit indexing “something” from Cardano to help with smart contracts running on Cardano?
  2. Could the Cardano protocol run it’s own indexing system to help with smart contract indexing of data? Is this already in the plans with future Cardano projects?

Thank you for any advice or information you can provide me on this topic.
