DIA and Horizen Partner to Bring Financial Data Oracle Capabilities to Horizen’s Ecosystem
The partnership will integrate DIA’s data feeds into Horizen’s ecosystem through a dedicated sidechain.
We are excited to announce our partnership with DIA (Decentralised Information Asset), an open-source data and oracle platform. This partnership will extend the functionality of DIA’s oracle capabilities and bring data feeds to Horizen’s sidechains and Zendoo, its decentralized and customizable sidechain protocol.
DIA is an open-source financial data platform incentivizing the sourcing and validation of data and providing data through traditional APIs, as well as oracles. The initial goal of this partnership is to introduce the functionality of these oracles to Zendoo by providing a verifiable bridge between off-chain data from various sources and on-chain smart contracts.
“By integrating DIA’s oracles, we’re adding a crucial decentralized financial infrastructure for our ecosystem” said Rob Viglione, co-founder of Horizen. “This sets the stage for an explosion of DeFi applications on our massively scalable sidechain system. Our team is thrilled to be partnering with DIA to leverage their expertise and open an important new phase of our project.”
By way of the partnership’s efforts to bring crypto price data feeds, Horizen and DIA will introduce a native ZEN token price feed to Horizen’s ecosystem through a dedicated, custom-built sidechain. This integration may be used for applications including stablecoins.
“Through our collaboration with Horizen, we will leverage Zendoo technology while expanding our oracle capabilities, effectively paving the way for advanced opportunities for both our respective communities,” said Michael Weber, DIA’s association president. “We’re looking forward to working alongside the Horizen team to accomplish our common goal of expanding blockchain functionality and decentralization.”
Zendoo is Horizen’s revolutionary sidechain and scaling solution, and it is the most decentralized and customizable sidechain protocol in the market. Horizen’s Zendoo SDK allows businesses and developers to efficiently spin-up their own customizable blockchains.
Launched in 2017, Horizen is the most secure blockchain ecosystem supported by the largest and most decentralized node infrastructure in the industry. With its unique sidechain technology Zendoo, Horizen provides all necessary components for an easy and speedy deployment of fully customizable blockchains focused on scalable data privacy.
