Real-time financial oracle deployment marks key milestone in DeFi growth, maturation

We’re excited to share that Pyth Price Feeds are now available to all Hedera developers. DeFi devs now have permissionless access to 400+ financial data feeds to utilize in smart contract applications, empowering community builders to create the next generation of DLT-enhanced financial services. You can learn how to integrate Pyth on Hedera here.

“Public Oracle price feeds are a critical component for growth as lending is often seen as the crux of economic behavior,” said HBAR Foundation Director of Business Development, Grace Pfluger. “This infrastructure is a huge milestone to spur development of innovative financial instruments on Hedera and we are ecstatic to partner with Pyth not only for the incredible tech, but our alignment of a long-term strategic vision.”

Pyth is a first-party financial oracle network designed to provide low-latency real-world data to multiple blockchains securely and transparently – in simple terms, this means Hedera devs can now build DeFi applications that pull aggregated, verified, real-time price data, delivered on a sub-second timescale.  

From a high-level, this deployment marks a key milestone for Hedera’s DeFi ecosystem because it enables Hedera users and developers to benefit from continual access to the latest price updates from 400 price feeds across digital assets, foreign exchange pairs, commodities, equities, and ETFs.

Why is that important?

We have all seen the unfortunate events in DeFi with liquidation events on lending platforms etc. We are determined to provide accurate data for our ecosystem to offer safe and reliable infrastructure for optimal user experience.

Integrating Pyth’s innovative tech stack is a direct countermeasure to bad data. It helps to ensure that Hedera network DeFi apps are built on sound foundations that everyone can trust, thereby laying the groundwork for discovery of new innovation pathways.   

Specifically, Pyth is the only financial data oracle offering a confidence interval measure to indicate volatility and divergences across different markets. This supplementary real-time data can better inform lending and derivative protocols about unusual market events to keep users and funds safe.

Ultimately, apps powered by Pyth have the benefit of being insulated by an intrinsic trust layer stemming from Price Feed’s unique oracle architecture that generates the low-latency, high-resolution data needed to ensure accurate trades and settlement.

For us, cultivating the Hedera network’s DeFi ecosystem was, is, and always will be a priority and we believe integrating Pyth can catalyze sector growth and utility by serving as a beacon for fellow ‘degens’ and devs who’re passionate about defining the future of finance.
