Pyth serves as a data gateway between real world markets and the blockchain. Its information system is utilized by crypto desks and trading exchanges who rely on its platform to obtain accurate, real-time data.

Pyth price feeds have been available on the Solana mainnet since August 2021 and leading Solana dApps like Bonfida, Drift, Hxro, Mango Markets, Saber Labs, Solend, Synthetify, Port, and Zeta Markets have integrated with Pyth network to strengthen their protocols’ uptime guarantees and automate critical on-chain functions in a highly reliable, fully decentralized, and cost-efficient manner.

Ideal has recently launched a crypto analytics API using Pyth Network’s real-time on-chain market data to empower crypto trading firms with institutional-grade analytics and total transparency on their transaction costs and profitability.

The decision intelligence firm developed Impact API to bring much-needed transaction transparency to crypto, a market where costs and spreads are often opaque today.
