We’re excited to announce that Tiingo has launched our own Chainlink node live on mainnet, bringing our financial market data directly to blockchain markets. Our initial journey will start with providing cryptographically signed end-of-day equities price data directly on-chain, with several DeFi applications already set to consume it. This enables a whole host of new DeFi markets to exist, specifically built around U.S. equities, such as perpetual derivatives contracts, synthetic assets, rebasing tokens, and more.
Being the most widely used oracle solution in the market, Chainlink was the clear choice in blockchain middleware necessary to get our existing API’s blockchain enabled across all the leading networks. Not only does the Chainlink node allow us to sell our API data directly to various blockchain applications, but we can sign our data on-chain to prove its origin as being from Tiingo, further adding to its reliability when settling DeFi contracts. Additionally, the node setup process was very easy and seamless, requiring minimal technical effort to get our API data exposed to a much wider range of markets.
For more information on why we opted to use Chainlink to monetize our data for blockchain markets, check our previous announcement. To learn about how to access our node, visit https://docs.chain.link/docs/tiingo-eod-stock-price-oracle.
In addition to end of day equities prices, we have a multitude of premium data sets that can be made available on-chain through our Chainlink node to service the increasing DeFi demand. This includes over 70,000+ global securities (Stocks, ETFs, and Funds), 4,100+ crypto trading pairs, and 130+ FX tickers. For a deeper look into how Tiingo provides the highest quality data with a highly available API, refer to https://api.tiingo.com/.
“We’re thrilled to launch our own Chainlink node live on mainnet, providing us with a universal gateway to start supplying premium financial data to the fast growing DeFi industry. This allows us to facilitate the launch of new DeFi markets, applications, and products, starting first with support for on-chain U.S. equities markets via signed EOD equities prices directly from our API. We envision this is only the beginning of our long and fruitful expansion into DeFi through the Chainlink Network.” — Rishi Singh, CEO of Tiingo
