iExec Launches Oracle Factory Allowing Anyone To Create Custom Oracles in Minutes

Press Release: Using the iExec Oracle Factory, developers are able to create their own decentralized oracles with just the API’s URL and key.

 

October 12th, Lyon, France, 2021iExec, a decentralized marketplace for computing assets, has announced the launch of the iExec Oracle Factory, a developer interface allowing anyone to create their own oracles, from scratch, in minutes, without any blockchain knowledge and directly from their browser.

In order for decentralized applications to solve real world problems, they need to make use of real word data. Decentralized oracles play a major role in blockchain-based architectures, acting as bridges between blockchains and the real world. However, developers who want to create their own oracles need existing blockchain knowledge, and coding them from scratch can take hours. 

iExec is releasing the iExec Oracle Factory, making oracles accessible to everyone. The iExec Oracle Factory is an interface allowing anyone to create their own decentralized oracles in just a few clicks. The iExec Oracle Factory makes possible a whole range of blockchain use cases, allowing developers to deploy oracles from any kinds of data: from sport results to NFT price, from temperatures to flight schedules.

 

Create Custom, Trusted Oracles in Minutes

Several companies today offer ready-to-use decentralized oracles. With its Oracle Factory, iExec aims to fill the need for custom oracles, providing a tool allowing anyone to create not only their own oracles, but also trusted ones.

 

The iExec Oracle Factory interface has been built to be as easy as possible to use:

 

  •     With the Oracle Factory, it only takes 5 minutes and a few clicks to create a custom oracle. Usually, creating an oracle from scratch takes 1 or 2 hours to code.
  •     Using the Oracle Factory, there is no need to write any line of code or even to have any blockchain knowledge.
  •     The oracle can be created directly from the web browser, using the URL of the API from which the data needs to be extracted (along with the private API key if the API is not public).

 

In addition to creating an oracle in minutes, the iExec Oracle Factory allows for ‘trusted’ oracles, using Trusted Execution Environments (TEE) technology. The TEE technology uses hardware enclaves to protect the API key and the data collected, ensuring they remain confidential, secure, and tamper-proof. With the Oracle Factory, iExec aims to make TEE technology accessible to all while creating an oracle.

 

Once created, users have the option to share their custom oracles with the community, by including them in the iExec Oracle Factory Gallery. This Oracle Factory Gallery will list oracles created within the interface, making them accessible for other users and developers. The iExec Oracle Factory also provides preset oracles, ready-to-use, as examples for the community.

 

Today, iExec releases the beta version of the Oracle Factory. There will be several upgrades of the product, to include more technical features, allowing developers to quickly implement smart contracts and deploy decentralized applications.

Chainlink releases new whitepaper in a shift toward smart contract computations

In its new vision, Chainlink would allow anyone to deploy an arbitrary executable on its network. Chainlink (LINK) has unveiled its new whitepaper on Thursday, which details a planned expansion and pivot into creating oracle networks for computation. The proposal would see Chainlink generalize its oracle network into a “meta layer” of Decentralized Oracle Networks, or DONs.The new architecture supports a larger selection of use cases, expanding its suite of services to off-chain computation of data. In Chainlink’s vision, these computational oracles would create a class of “hybrid smart....

Vitalik Buterin says Uniswap should become an oracle token

“UNI is in an excellent position to be a token for such an oracle,” said Buterin, in reference to decentralized pricing oracles for stablecoins. Uniswap’s native UNI token can greatly enhance its utility by becoming a pricing oracle for stablecoins, according to Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin. In a proposal submitted to Uniswap’s governance platform, Buterin said that a successful decentralized finance, or DeFi, ecosystem relies on a “highly secure pricing oracle,” noting that algorithmic stablecoins, synthetic assets and collateralized loans all depend on oracles. The problem,....

Chainlink co-founder Sergey Nazarov explains why a decentralized oracle network is needed to ensure trust in the DeFi ecosystem. Chainlink co-founder Sergey Nazarov believes that increasing the decentralization and scalability of oracle technologies are key to ensure trust in the DeFi ecosystem. Oracles play a key role in the correct functioning of DeFI protocols by connecting them to real-world data. However, the trustworthiness of oracles becomes compromised in instances where they rely on a single data source to retrieve information. For instance, according to Nazarov, excessively....

Umbrella Network launches on Ethereum with cross-chain bridge to BSC

Smart contracts, especially for DeFi, are becoming a data-intensive industry. Oracle services are helping to bridge the gap. Decentralized oracle service Umbrella Network officially launched on Ethereum Friday, setting the stage for cross-chain transactions between the dominant smart contract platform and Binance Smart Chain, or BSC. The cross-chain bridge connecting Ethereum and BSC was developed in-house at Umbrella Network, underscoring the need to transfer tokens and other crypto assets between the two networks. The cross-chain bridge also enables users to stake and farm crypto tokens....
