This section for the XChain Midgard Query library elucidates the operational workflow and underlying mechanisms utilized to interact with the Midgard API and retrieve blockchain data.

The Midgard-query module utilizes the Midgard API to query the THORChain network. Midgard is a layer 2 REST API that offers front-end consumers semi real-time aggregated data and analytics. It serves as a buffer to handle most network requests, relieving the blockchain from processing large quantities of queries and allowing it to focus on transaction processing.

Essentially, Midgard acts as a "read-only slave" to the chain, optimizing network resources.
