Bringing data from the real world to the chain is one of the infrastructures of the DeFi world. We look forward to building a more transparent on-chain data marketplace in the blockchain industry through the Pyth network as a key partner, which will help create a new DeFi world that is more collaborative and open and accelerate crypto for adoption. massive”.

This position in the market, coupled with their ability to mine high-quality data, makes them a natural data provider partner for Pyth.” Commented Stephen Kaminsky, Special Projects at Jump Crypto, one of the leading institutions helping to support Pyth, and a recent lead investor in the latest funding round for KuCoin. “KuCoin’s recent increased focus on DeFi and Web3 is also directly in line with Pyth’s mission to support on-chain projects and protocols.”
