PYTH now available on Coinhako

We are thrilled to share that Pyth (PYTH) is now listed on Coinhako!

What are Pyth Network and PYTH?

The Pyth Network is the largest and fastest-growing first-party Oracle network that delivers real-time market data to financial dApps across 40+ blockchains. It provides low-latency price feeds across cryptocurrencies, equities, ETFs, FX pairs, and commodities.

PYTH is the native token on the Pyth Network that allows token-holders to determine high-level parameters of the Oracle network's mechanisms through on-chain voting. The on-chain governance addresses major protocol matters such as the size and denomination of Oracle fees, the reward mechanism for data providers, and the listing of new data feeds. 

PYTH maintains a max supply of 10,000,000,000 coins and has traded for USD $1.20 at its peak. 

How does Pyth work?

The Pyth network comprises some of the world's largest exchanges, market makers, and financial services providers and operates by utilizing 3 components:

Data Providers

Pyth's contributors include global exchanges, trading firms, market makers, and various institutional and decentralized participants. They provide proprietary data in two main categories: tradeable asset prices from exchanges and the latest transaction prices from traders.

Pyth Protocol

Pyth's protocol aggregates data from multiple providers to generate a unified price and confidence interval every 400 milliseconds. This process takes place on Pythnet, a blockchain with proof-of-authority configuration, ensuring data accuracy and robustness.

Data Users

Pyth's applications on supported blockchains utilize aggregated price feeds, seamlessly integrating data into smart contract logic. Pyth's unique "Pull Oracle" architecture lets data users request price updates as necessary, ensuring gas efficiency by only charging for required prices and avoiding unnecessary fees.

Why does Pyth stand out?

Pyth Network provides 380+ price feeds for various assets, updating every 400ms for accurate smart contract operations. Each feed includes a confidence interval to indicate market volatility and uncertainty.

Its price data is sourced from trusted institutions contributing to the network. Over 90 data providers publish their proprietary price data to the Pyth Network for dApps to use. These sources include major crypto and traditional exchanges, trading firms, financial services providers, and DEXs.

Integrating with Pyth Price Feeds is permissionless on over 40 blockchains, such as Ethereum, Optimism, Arbitrum, Solana and more. Developers have access to all 380+ Pyth Price Feeds across Pyth-supported blockchains for rapid multi-chain expansion in smart contract protocols.
