TraderMade Launches Chainlink Node to Provide DeFi With Premium Financial Index Data
08/09/2021 at 08:35AM
We are excited to announce that TraderMade has launched our own Chainlink node live on mainnet, giving smart contract applications on-chain access to our premium financial market data, starting with real-time prices for CFDs that track financial indexes and CFDs that track commodities futures. Developers and dApps can now call the TraderMade Chainlink node to obtain these data feeds and use them within various data-driven Decentralized Finance (DeFi) products such as to settle futures markets, price asset swaps, or determine the outcome of prediction markets.
As the most widely-used and time-tested oracle solution in the blockchain industry, Chainlink provides a secure and fully functional middleware that gets our existing APIs compatible with the leading blockchain networks. By operating a Chainlink node, we now have a single gateway to supply our data to any current or future blockchain, as well as cryptographically sign our data on-chain to prove that it originated from TraderMade. The setup process was quick and seamless, ultimately exposing our data to an expansive emerging market in DeFi with very little integration work on our end.
For more information on why we selected Chainlink, read our previous announcement to explore this topic in detail.
