Orbs Becomes Official Sponsor of Chainlink Reference Data Networks to Support Accurate Price Feeds in DeFi

Orbs has officially become an official sponsor of Chainlink Reference Data Networks, supporting the oracle price feeds.

The sponsorship means that Orbs is helping secure and decentralize Chainlink oracles, while at the same time enabling smaller projects to use Chainlink free of charge. The oracle network currently relies on sponsors to incentivize the data providers and pay for their services, which means that sponsors are vital to the success of the Chainlink network.

Orbs is sponsoring Chainlink’s USD pairs, and the ETH/USD pair, specifically. It joins a list of leading DeFi protocols and infrastructure providers who benefit from the success and resilience of Chainlink’s tamper-proof oracle network. Chainlink is currently the market standard for decentralized, sybil resistant and manipulation-resistant oracles. The Chainlink Price Feeds are vital for a number of DeFi projects which require accurate price data that resists manipulation attempts on one or several trading venues.

Orbs recently began using Chainlink Price Feeds for its Liquidity Nexus protocol, an innovative solution to reduce impermanent loss in AMMs by splitting the two sides of a traditional liquidity pool. This allows users who only want exposure in USD, primarily Orbs’ enterprise partners, to collect a portion of the fees in leading DEXs without necessarily acquiring exposure to cryptocurrencies. In contrast, crypto enthusiasts can collect the same fees while maintaining single-sided exposure and reduce impermanent loss compared to a 50-50 portfolio split.

“True to the community spirit, Chainlink’s price feeds are maintained on a voluntary basis,” said Tal Kol, CEO of Orbs. “We think it’s important to give back to the community from something you strongly benefit from, which is why we decided to sponsor the Chainlink reference data networks after a successful integration. We hope this will help further support and grow the network, and enable more projects to build resilient products with this data.”

Orbs is an enterprise-focused project that has been particularly active in the DeFi space, seeking to bridge enterprise with the revolutionary financial ecosystem with Liquidity Nexus. Orbs is heavily involved in funding and supporting upstart DeFi projects, both through an in-house Grants program and the DeFi.org accelerator, launched in 2021 as the result of a collaboration with Binance.
