Pyth Price Feeds are Live on Base and Sei

During this hot summer season, Pyth Price Feeds have continued to expand into even hotter new blockchains—Base and Sei.

Congratulations to Sei on their mainnet launch! Sei is a general-purpose, open-source Layer 1 blockchain specialized for the exchange of digital assets.

The Sei blockchain is designed to be one of the fastest blockchains in the industry, and thus a ripe environment for deploying Pyth Price Feeds to support high throughput DeFi. Borrow-lending protocols Aether, Kryptonite, and Kawa Finance, as well as decentralized exchanges Fuzio, Levana, and SeaSwap are now using Pyth Price Feeds.

You can learn more about our integration with Sei in our launch blog.

Pyth Integrations on Sei

Pyth Price Feeds have also launched on Base, the Ethereum Layer 2 network by Coinbase. Base offers secure, cost-effective solutions for Ethereum developers by tapping into the open-source OP Stack thanks to their partnership with Optimism.

Developers on Base can permissionlessly access all of Pyth’s 300+ permissionless price feeds. DeFi applications like CAP Finance, Perennial, DePerp, Buffer Finance, and Pike are already using Pyth data or have started integrating.

Stablecoins and Pyth Price Feeds

Earlier this week, we delved into the world of stablecoins and how they support the Web3 capital markets. Pyth Price Feeds play a paramount role in the stablecoin landscape.

As most of our readers know, stablecoins are a type of cryptocurrency designed to maintain a stable value by being pegged to a specific reserve asset, such as a fiat currency like the US Dollar or a commodity like gold.

Since stablecoins play a critical role in the DeFi ecosystem as a store of value and means of transfer, the Pyth Network supports the most popular stablecoin price feeds. Pyth’s stablecoin feeds enable dApps to track the underlying value of stables, even in the rare case of depegs.

Pyth Network provides the greatest oracle coverage for stablecoins. There are currently 11 different stablecoins Pyth Price Feed live today: USDT (Tether), USDC (Circle), DAI (Maker), BUSD (Binance), EUROC (Circle), USDD (Tron), OUSD (Origin Dollar), USTC (Luna Classic), TUSD (TrueUSD), CUSD (Celo USD), and FRAX (Frax Finance). Like all other Pyth Price Feeds, the Pyth stablecoin feeds are available on more than 30 blockchains.

The work doesn’t stop here. The Pyth Network’s contributors are working towards supporting LUSD (Liquity), VAI (Venus), FDUSD (First Digital Dollar), HAY (Helio), and USDP (Paxos USD). More announcements soon on the progress of these ambitious stablecoin initiatives.

Pythian Stats

Amidst the bear market, resilient DeFi developers were heads down with work and persevered. With the rise of high throughput DeFi from Solana came a new generation of dApps in 2023. Pyth saw an impressive three new integrations per week since the start of this year.

Three Protocols Integrate Pyth Each Week

The network is now securing at least 180 protocols. This number is most likely a conservative count, given that builders can integrate Pyth Price Feeds permissionlessly.

You can explore the Pyth documentation to learn more.

Synthetix, the renowned liquidity backend primitive for on-chain derivative contracts on Optimism, has experienced a fundamental transformation in performance since integrating with Pyth.

Synthetix completed its integration in December 2022 and has since processed an impressive $22B in volume from its previous $5B total. This is a shoutout to all DeFi developers. Let us know how Pyth Price Feeds will unlock the growth and momentum your dApp deserves.
