Hermés Indexer

The Hermés indexer is responsible for accelerating read operations from the blockchain to your gaming decentralized application.

Blockchains today are still natively inefficient for reading specific account information. Given the linear strata of data, it makes it harder to query specific events natively without very efficient filters if we were to read directly from the chain.

When reading accounts from the chain directly, there could be large volumes of data that are not necessary for the client to download. Downloading this would make it very slow and non-performant.

The Hermés indexer solves this problem by doing this work by subscribing to relevant events for your game from the Matrix Core Engine Validator Node for the blockchain of your choice. It then parses this data and filters it for only relevant points we need to consume on the client.
