XBTO is joining Pyth



November 15, 2021


Pyth network

XBTO is proud to partner with the Pyth Network as its newest contributing data originator.

Established in 2015, XBTO was one of the first market participants to provide institutional-grade liquidity to major trading platforms. Since then, XBTO has become a recognized and leading proprietary algorithmic trader and venture capital firm.

XBTO is teaming up with Pyth Network, a next-generation, decentralized “oracle network” built on the Solana blockchain with cross-chain capabilities via Wormhole. Pyth serves as an oracle solution connecting leading exchanges and top trading firms holding real-world market data, with smart contracts on-chain. It is designed to do so anywhere across blockchains, and with sub-second speeds. Pyth, like XBTO, strives to establish stability, trust, and transparency throughout the cryptofinance industry.

The fundamental issue Pyth seeks to address is that decentralized finance often can’t get the access it needs to accurate, time-sensitive, real world data. Pyth depends upon contributions from partners, including XBTO to source the massive amount of high integrity and high-fidelity financial data necessary to help DeFi. It harnesses this data to create reliable and decentralized sources of high fidelity composite market data, and to establish a cross-chain market of verifiable data from quality providers. XBTO is proud to join the ranks of such an impressive list of nearly 40 data providers committed to the Pyth network.

With its proprietary technologies and unmatched expertise, many crypto exchanges working with XBTO have successfully reduced price volatility and offered enhanced spreads. On Pyth, prices are composed by aggregating data streams, weighing the results, and then conveying prices with an accompanying confidence rating. The confidence rating or “interval” can widen when markets are irregular and contract when they are orderly. This composite formula relies on the quality and indicative conviction of its data providers so that the oracle network can avoid sacrificing decentralization.

Pyth is currently working with several ambitious integration projects, including a trustless cross-chain bridge named Wormhole. Wormhole supports seamless communication between Solana, Ethereum, Terra and the Binance Smart Chain, with more chains to be added in the future. Teams developing projects on any of the supported blockchains can leverage Pyth and immediately begin implementing a high-fidelity oracle in their native protocol. Pyth has established itself at the center of creative development on the Solana blockchain, cultivating a loyal development community of “Pythians” and ensuring Its partnership value long into the future.
