We'll break down the schema into primary and secondary entities.

PrimaryContract, Action, Stream, Asset, Segment
SecondaryBatch, Batcher, Watcher


The subgraph is designed to track multiple deployments. Therefore, at any given time the indexer may listen for updates on many instances of SablierV2LockupLinear or SablierV2LockupDynamic contracts .

A unique alias will be attributed to every contract, such that contracts (and later streams) will be identifiable through both a long form and a short form identifier. See the Stream for details.


Events emitted by the Sablier Lockup contracts will:

  1. Be used to mutate the data stored in the individual Stream entities
  2. Be stored as historical logs (list of Action) to show the evolution of a related stream

Based on the schema defined ActionCategory, the following actions will be tracked by the subgraph:

ActionContract Events
CreateCreateLockupLinearStream, CreateLockupDynamicStream

To keep all actions under the same umbrella, some details will be stored under general purpose attributes like amountA, amountB, addressA, addressB which based on the type of action can be resolved to context-specific values. Am example can be found here for the Cancel event.



Inside the contracts, streams will be assigned a unique tokenId (or streamId). While this makes it easy to identify items at the contract level, we need to consider the following for both subgraphs and client interfaces:

  • items should be uniquely recognizable across multiple contract instances
  • items should be uniquely identifiable across multiple chains
  • items should be identifiable with short, easy to digest names

To address these observations, the subgraph uses two related identifiers for a Stream.

Stream.idA self-explanatory structure built using the following structure: contractAddress-chainId-tokenId0xAB..12-137-21
Stream.aliasA short version of the id where the contract is aliased: contractAlias-chainId-tokenIdLL-137-21

Both examples from the table above translate to: a stream on Polygon (chain id 137), within the Lockup Linear contract at address 0xAB..12, with the tokenId 21.


The aliases defined in the subgraph will be used by client apps to resolve data about a stream. Make sure to keep them in sync, avoid conflicts and regard them as immutable (once decided, never change them).


To provide a simple visual structure, while also accounting for future stream types (backwards compatibility) we use the following abbreviations as aliases:

  • Lockup Linear V2.0 contracts become LL, e.g. LL-137-1
  • Lockup Linear V2.1 contracts become LL2, e.g. LL2-137-1
  • Lockup Dynamic V2.0 contracts become LD, e.g. LD-137-1
  • Lockup Dynamic V2.1 contracts become LD2, e.g. LD2-137-1

Relevant parties

Within the larger Sablier V2 ecosystem, the number of relevant entities participating in a stream (and the dynamics between them) has grown past the immutable sender and recipient (as in V1). Therefore, we identify the following parties involved in a stream.

The recipient (gets paid*)

As funds are being streamed, they will slowly become eligible to withdraw and spend unlocked assets. The recipient is defined at the start of the stream but can change as a result of a transfer.

On transfer, the old recipient moves the NFT (the stream itself) to another address, which becomes the new recipient. Rights to withdraw and claim future streamed funds are naturally transferred to this new address.

The sender (will pay*)

They are an immutable party, defined at the start of the stream. Based on the configuration chosen for the stream, they will be entitled to later cancel the stream, renounce it (disable cancelability) or withdraw on behalf of the recipient.

In case of a cancelation, the sender will receive any unstreamed assets as part of the refund.

The funder

When the stream is created, they provide the assets to be gradually streamed to the recipient. Usually, they are the same entity as the sender. However, there may be cases when someone wishes to create a stream on another user's behalf, while also marking them as the sender. In that case, this initial address will be accounted for as the stream's funder.

The proxender (relevant only for V2.0, deprecated with V2.1+)

Warning: Deprecated

Sablier V2.0 involved users deploying a "PRBProxy" contract through which they interacted with the Sablier contracts. With Sablier V2.1+ this is not the case any more as streams are now designed to be managed without these forwarder contracts. Therefore, you don't need to worry about proxenders and proxy if you're not looking to support old versions of the protocol.

[In V2.0] While not mandatory for the core functionality, Sablier (through its periphery) made use of PRBProxy. The official client interfaces provided support for functionality exposed through both EOAs and this proxy integration, at the same time.

For streams created within this "extended" ecosystem, a few attributes and entities will change meaning as such:

  • the stream.proxied flag will turn true
  • the stream.sender address will resolve to a proxy contract address, owned by the stream.proxender
  • the stream.proxender address (usually an EOA) will control this sender proxy and instruct it to perform actions on its behalf (like a special account)
#Examples of supported flows
10xF the funder (EOA), funds a stream on behalf of 0xA, the sender (EOA), towards 0xB the recipient (EOA)
20xA the sender (EOA), creates a stream towards 0xB the recipient (EOA)
30xA the proxender (EOA), through their proxy 0xA1 (proxy contract), creates a stream towards 0xB the recipient

While other combinations are possible, the most likely ones (as supported by the official interfaces) will be similar to example #3.


For Sablier V2.1 and above, you should only rely on the recipient and sender parties.


Tokens (ERC20) streamed through the protocol will be defined through an Asset entity.


As a development caveat, some ERC20 contracts are designed to store details (e.g. name, symbol) as bytes32 and not string. Prior to deploying a subgraph, make sure you take into account these details as part of any Asset entity implementation. For examples, see the asset "helper" files inside this subgraph's repository code.


The custom emission curve used by LockupDynamic streams will be defined as a sequence of segments. This entity will store data regarding those segments, which will be later used to reconstruct the shape of the curve client side.

Batch and Batcher

The v2-periphery, while not explicitly tracked by the subgraph will offer some extra functionality to proxy-sourced streams. One of these functionalities will be batch stream creation (or stream grouping). Using methods like batchCreateWithRange or batchCreateWithDeltas a sender will be able to create multiple streams at once - considered part of the same batch.

To identify these relationships between stream items, the Batch entity will group items created in the same transaction, by finding events emitted with the same tx hash. The Batcher will then assign a user-specific unique index to every group.


The Watcher (one for the entire subgraph) will provide specific utilities to the entire system, like global stream identifiers (a numeric id unique to a stream across all contract instances) and global action identifiers.
