Zurich, 07/03/2024 In a groundbreaking move for decentralized finance (DeFi), Laser Digital, Nomura’s digital asset subsidiary, proudly announces its involvement as a data provider to Pyth Network. This collaboration signifies a pivotal moment in Laser Digital’s commitment to redefine how financial market data is accessed and utilized within the decentralized ecosystem. Established in April 2021, Pyth Network has risen to become one of the largest oracle networks, drawing data from over 90 first-party providers across traditional asset and crypto markets. This network includes leading trading firms, market makers, crypto exchanges, and traditional exchanges globally. Laser Digital’s addition to this network is a monumental step, injecting valuable expertise and experience from the existing banking world into the dynamic DeFi community.

Laser Digital will initially contribute crypto pricing data to the network. Pyth has scaled to include over 400 price feeds, which include not just digital assets but also traditional assets like stocks/ETFs, foreign exchange, and commodities. The partnership aligns seamlessly with the blockchain industry’s trajectory towards high throughput DeFi and the growing demand for low-latency, high-frequency on-chain data.

 “We are thrilled to see Laser Digital join the Pyth Network. This is a fantastic step forward in building the leading financial market data oracle for web3,” commented Mike Cahill, CEO of Douro Labs, a contributor to the Pyth ecosystem. “The company’s commitment to an open and dynamic culture, coupled with its market adaptability, aligns seamlessly with Pyth Network’s vision.”
