The Graph (GRT) is the latest CoinmarketCap Learn and Earn campaign and users who will successful respond all the questions of the quiz will receive 10 GRT Tokens from a pool of 1,000,000 tokens worth approximately $760,000 in a First come first first serve policy distributed on their Binance Spot wallet. Interestingly, this is the 2nd launch of the CoinMarketCap's Graph Learn and Earn campaign and the fact that Binance has launched a GRT Flexible savings account, makes the drop of the 10 GRT even more lucrative as these token can be further staked and earn 1% A.P.Y. interest on them. The campaign will be active from 2021.07.05 to 2021.07.14 (23:59:59 UTC)

What Is CoinMarketCap Learn and Earn?

CoinMarketCap Learn and Earn enables users to receive tokens while learning about a new cryptocurrency project. Each user needs to watch a series of educational videos about a crypto project and complete a quiz consisting of several questions about the project's basic information. There main challenge of the quiz is that the user needs to answer ALL questions correctly, otherwise no reward is provided.
It should be also noted that the content provided on CoinMarketCap Learn and Earn doesn't mean to provide any financial or investment advice from the platform and it serves purely as educational content for the CoinMarketCap users.

What Is The Graph (GRT)?

According to CoinMarketCap GRT overview webpage, the Graph is an indexing protocol for querying data for networks like Ethereum and IPFS, powering many applications in both DeFi and the broader Web3 ecosystem. Anyone can build and publish open APIs, called subgraphs, that applications can query using GraphQL to retrieve blockchain data. There is a hosted service in production that makes it easy for developers to get started building on The Graph and the decentralized network will be launching later this year. The Graph currently supports indexing data from Ethereum, IPFS and POA, with more networks coming soon. The Graph team includes professionals from the Ethereum Foundation, OpenZeppelin, Decentraland, Orchid, MuleSoft such as Yaniv Tal (project lead), Brandon Ramirez (research lead) and Jannis Pohlmann (tech lead), leading up to the IPO and acquisition by Salesforce, Puppet, Redhat and Barclays.

Initially I have decided not to create this article about my investigation on Learn and Earn Graph campaign, just like did in my previous Learn and Earn articles such as the My Investigation on CoinMarketCap's 1INCH second Learn and Earn Campaign and My Investigation on CoinMarketCap's Polkastarter Learn and Earn Campaign. Honestly, I felt really frustrated from the lack of motivation and responsibility of a fellow author who has put very little effort in his article providing his own "correct" responses without justifications, that I have decided to do my own research and find the correct answers and the justifications behind them instead of blindly following up the limited article that provided them. Not only that fellow author, didn't bother to provide a justification for his responses aNd he didn't even bother to provide them in complete sentences, he was even reckless enough to enquire US to correct his responses IN CASE his responses were wrong!!! And forgive me for being so strict and critical with him, but I wouldn't if he had provided a decent article with responses and the arguments behind these responses but his lack of motivation made me so furious that I have decided to provide my own article showing how he should provide his answers in the future. Nevertheless, he and the rest of the readers should take my criticism in a constructive positive way in order to put more effort in the future Learn and Earn campaigns and my criticism doesn't aim to make the Publish0x Team remove his article as of "low" quality or value as Igor declared in a relevant article. It is though a good lesson in order to become a better author in the future. These are my comments in his article.

I keep repeating that even 1 wrong answer either on purpose or by wrong judgement is enough to destroy someone's hopes of the CoinmarketCap Learn and earn GRT drop as the Learn and Earn campaigns require 100% correct results so I believe whoever writes an article with his recommendations should be highly motivated and responsible providing justifications for them. This time the lessons for the Learn and Earn GRT campaign can be found on a video format with a duration approximately 1 minute each so they aren't lengthy and boring:

A very informative article about the Graph is the article published by [StealthEX] with title What Is GRT Crypto? The Graph Crypto Price Prediction. The Graph Crypto News. How To Buy The Graph Token? and it can be used as an alternative source of information about the Graph Learn and Earn Campaign.

Question 1: What is the total supply of GRT tokens??

02d29142d8d0bcc08f851cea9c823c317d6a71903fd405db7a5d76296ae38167.jpg

JUSTIFICATION: From the CoinMarketCap GRT webpage, we find that the total supply of GRT tokens are 10,000,000,000

Question 2: What is The Graph?

f257c00b4c10e837ed135f928c6f35367e5cad1fceaa7ad1ea6fd16cb62026a5.jpg

JUSTIFICATION: Luckily, on Lesson 1 video, transcript is available, so from 00:18 to 00:39 we learn that

crypto networks are creating a radically better foundation for society software and information all data is stored and processed on open networks with verifiable integrity making it possible for developers to build and publish open source code that's guaranteed to run as advertised the graph is a protocol for organizing open data and making it easily accessible to applications

making answer 3 ideal. Nevertheless the rest of the answers aren't covered on the transcript.

Question 3: What are subgraphs?

JUSTIFICATION: Again, on Lesson 1 video, transcript is available, so from 00:42 to 00:44 we learn that

curators help organize data through open apis called subgraphs

making answer 3 ideal. Again the rest of the answers aren't covered on the transcript.

Question 4: What’s the query language used for Subgraphs?

326b99dbb6f4861f9751302c58d59e9a23dedb0e6d695c542637457fda786213.jpg

JUSTIFICATION: Although transcript isn't available on Lesson 2 Vide, at around 00:14 we learn that

Anyone can access date through subgraphs, with just a few key strokes, using a convenient query language called GraphQL help organize data through open apis called subgraphs

making answer 3 ideal. Again the rest of the answers aren't covered on the transcript. GraphQL is also mentioned on the video animation.

Question 5: What do Curators do?

22ac28466b745c3fbb6fa03c5608510229e0272cf43b8128a7d4d6599c9b7be5.jpg

JUSTIFICATION: Although transcript isn't available on Lesson 2 Video, at around 00:30 we learn that

Curators signal on quality subgraphs by depositing GRT, the Graph's native token in return for curation shares..

making answer 1 ideal. Again the rest of the answers aren't covered on the transcript.

Question 6: What are Indexers?

bcb96b0e66538e4bfdf2020a2a0d02128df4d5d44144310c1e0ed92abcb58760.jpg

JUSTIFICATION: In the transcript of Lesson 1 Video, at around 00:46 we learn that

a network of computer operators called indexers process subgraph data for efficient retrieval

making answer 2 ideal. Again the rest of the answers aren't covered on the transcript.

Question 7: Why do indexers have to stake GRT? 

da50bfe381d273896e0351e0f2c21928a05127590cbc5249d9db43f383b9cf96.jpg

JUSTIFICATION: Although transcript isn't available on Lesson 1 Video, at around 00:46 we learn that

 

Indexers need to stake GRT in order to provide the service to the network. This creates economic security because if they misbehave, they can lose their GRT. 

making answer 1 ideal. Again the rest of the answers aren't covered on the transcript.

Question 8: By delegating GRT to Indexers what can you do?

5aa94de3e7d1e35eae0d2882c90b5f23c7f9bb873f25850c0ed4378683813774.jpg

JUSTIFICATION: Although transcript isn't available on Lesson 2 Vide, at around 01:18 we learn that

 

To create more of an incentive, anyone can become a delegator and delegate their GRT to an indexer. with the extra stake, indexers can earn more fees and rewards and pass a portion of these earnings back to a delegator. By delegating GRT to indexers, you can help secure the network and make sure there are plenty of indexers to process and serve all the data for the crypto-economy.

 

making answer 1 ideal. Again the rest of the answers aren't covered on the transcript.

 

For the airdrop of your GRT token it is only needed to have a Binance Account with a KYC verification as the tokens will be only dropped into your GRT Spot account there so no dAPP wallet is necessary.
