Pyth Price Feeds on NEAR Testnet

One year after the Pyth expansion to Aurora, the EVM environment built on NEAR, the Pyth Price Feeds have finally landed on NEAR testnet. NEAR is a layer one, sharded, proof-of-stake blockchain built with usability in mind.

As of today, developers on NEAR now have a permissionless access to Pyth’s 350+ price feeds for digital assets, as well as foreign exchange pairs, commodities, and even equities and ETFs.


NEAR

NEAR is an open-source platform that accelerates the development of decentralized applications overcoming high fees and slow speeds with its fast, scalable, low-cost, and climate-neutral blockchain protocol. This is why NEAR was recently awarded the Climate Neutral Product Label from South Pole. One transaction on NEAR consumes about 1300x less carbon than a similar transaction on other chains.

To learn more about the NEAR Protocol, please visit their website.
