Pyth Price Feeds on Astar zkEVM

EDIT: On March 5, 2024, this blog was updated to reflect the deployment of Pyth Price Feeds on Astar zkEVM’s mainnet environment. This launch follows the testnet deployment in October 2023.

The Pyth Network and its contributors have always championed zero-knowledge (ZK) technology and its transformative potential for Web3. We are now excited to share that Pyth Price Feeds are now available on the newly launched Astar zkEVM—a robust, secure, and interoperable new Layer-2 solution to scale the Web3 experience on Ethereum.

The Pyth Network has also launched its ASTR/USD price feed, which is available on the Astar Network and more than 50 other blockchains.

Astar's smart contract developers can now tap into a rich array of over 450 low-latency price feeds encompassing equities, commodities, foreign exchange pairs, and cryptocurrencies.

“We are excited about integrating Pyth Network suite of permissionless price feeds on Astar zkEVM. The integration and partnership marks an exciting development for all the builders using Astar zkEVM Testnet (zKatana) and unlocks many new use cases in our ecosystem." — Maarten Henskens, Head of Astar Foundation

Who’s Using Pyth Data?

DeFi applications native to Astar zkEVM are already tapping into the Pyth oracle’s low-latency price data to power their protocols.
