We’re excited to announce that DeFiato, a next-generation centralized DeFi platform, has integrated Chainlink Price Feeds on the multiple chains it supports, including Ethereum, BNB Chain, Polygon, and Avalanche. By integrating the industry-leading decentralized oracle network, DeFiato has access to high-quality, tamper-proof price feeds needed to provide pricing boundaries that help act as guardrails for asset swaps. This will provide our users with greater assurance that asset prices won’t exceed the maximum or minimum set parameters when they participate in swaps on DeFiato.

We chose Chainlink as our go-to oracle solution because its infrastructure is seamless to integrate and time-tested in production. Chainlink already helps secure leading DeFi protocols responsible for tens of billions of dollars in smart contract value, maintaining robust security and high availability even amidst unexpected events, such as exchange downtime, flash crashes, and data manipulation attacks via flash loans

As a Centralized DeFi (CeDeFi) platform, DeFiato combines the user-friendly features of a centralized platform with DeFi services such as swapping, yield farming, lending/borrowing, and more. With a beginner-friendly and all-in-one CeDeFi platform, DeFiato makes DeFi services easily accessible to all users, including those with little to no experience. Within just a year of our launch, DeFiato has accumulated more than 100,000 users worldwide. 

In order to help secure our swap function, we needed access to fresh asset prices that are supplied directly on-chain in a highly reliable manner. Fair market asset prices should reflect a volume-weighted average from all trading environments. Thus, we needed to make use of an oracle network to fetch aggregated price data off-chain and deliver it on-chain to be consumed by our application.

After reviewing various oracle solutions, we integrated Chainlink Price Feeds because they provide a multitude of critical features such as:

  • High-Quality Data — Chainlink Price Feeds source data from numerous premium data aggregators, leading to price data that’s aggregated from hundreds of exchanges, weighted by volume, and cleaned of outliers and wash trading. Chainlink’s data aggregation model generates more precise global market prices that are inherently resistant to inaccuracies or manipulation of any single or small set of exchanges. 
  • Secure Node Operators — Chainlink Price Feeds are secured by independent, security-reviewed, and Sybil-resistant oracle nodes run by leading blockchain DevOps teams, data providers, and traditional enterprises. Chainlink nodes have a strong track record of reliability, even during high gas prices and infrastructure outages. 
  • Decentralized Network — Chainlink Price Feeds are decentralized at the data source, oracle node, and oracle network levels, generating strong protections against downtime and tampering by either the data provider or oracle network.
  • Reputation System  — Chainlink provides a robust reputation framework and set of on-chain monitoring tools that allow users to independently verify the historical and real-time performance of node operators and oracle networks.

As DeFiato continues to expand its DeFi service offerings and onboard new chains onto our platform, we plan to leverage additional Chainlink Price Feeds to improve the user experience and make it even more seamless, easy, and secure.

“Chainlink Price Feeds help move us closer to a more decentralized platform and improves our capabilities to present high-quality, globally precise data to our users.”  – Jeremy Khoo, CIO of DeFiato
