In 2021, no one dares to question blockchain oracles’ importance in developing our industry and, ultimately, philosophy. And, of course, we cannot fulfil Panther Protocol’s scalable, interoperable private infrastructure vision without the support of these revolutionary tools.
Today, we’re glad to announce our partnership with SupraOracles, a powerful cross-chain oracle that helps businesses bridge real-world data to both public and private chains in the pursuit to create a genuinely private DeFi ecosystem.
SupraOracle’’s vision is to empower the developer community with a novel oracle toolset to conveniently create, deploy, and manage real-time data applications with superb performance, robustness, and agility.
SupraOracle’s innovations are very much centred around cross-chain operations, which, as you know, are also core to Panther’s interoperable privacy goals.
The project has received over $1m in awards, grants and credits from the likes of Ethereum, Dfinity, Tezos, NEAR, Polygon, Ziliqa, Arweave, and IBM. SupraOracles is also part of MasterCard’s StartPath cryptocurrency and blockchain program for startups.
Joining forces for DeFi’s greater good
SupraOracles is set to create data service feeds that are specific to the needs of Panther. Through this, the oracle layer becomes Panther’s Trust Provider for the data type required in support of our Prover-Verifier mechanism, a key component in the zero-knowledge attestations at the heart of Panther Protocol.
SupraOracles offers a game-changing Multi-Helix Ledger (MHL) enabling an extremely efficient mechanism to move and access value between chains with validated authenticity and security, without having to compromise speed.
Further in our development, Panther will also utilize Supra’s cross-chain Oracle capabilities in Panther’s InterChain DEX for alignment and data consistency across chains. As you know, this is key to enabling truly interoperable Decentralized Finance. We hope to rely on Supra’s oracles for secure, fair access to key data from price feeds to complex financial information.
In our Founders’ words
One of the more attractive features both Panther and SupraOracles are pursuing is cross-chain interoperability for DeFi users. Supra believes Panther’s state-of-the-art privacy features can be extremely beneficial to the greater DeFi ecosystem.
Joshua D. Tobkin, CEO and Co-founder of SupraOracles, commented: “Panther Protocol’s unique value proposition is its ability to appeal to legacy financial institutions that want to protect user privacy while still abiding by regulatory requirements. SupraOracles is also built to bridge the gap between DeFi and traditional financial institutions. So, our projects are not only compatible from a technical perspective, but also agree on the importance of welcoming TradFi into DeFi.”
Oliver Gale, Panther’s CEO and Co-Founder added: “The SupraOracles partnership is one grounded in the need for low latency, flexible and cross-chain oracle services. As DeFi scales into high-value retail user and institutional use cases privacy, speed, security and compliance will become the keywords of successful teams.”
The current DeFi panorama presents many challenges, from onboarding the bulk of the world’s capital into decentralized tools to interconnecting the value locked in multiple blockchains. The security and accuracy of the oracles that we utilize is, therefore, key to achieving this mission.
We welcome SupraOracles to the Panther family and ecosystem and look forward to a prosperous collaboration between our teams!
SupraOracles strives to bridge the gap between traditional capital markets and the Web3.0 ecosystem. Our vision and driving mission is to empower the developer community with a novel oracle toolset so that they may conveniently create, deploy, and manage data applications with superior performance, robustness, and agility.
Our project is supported by seasoned professionals with experience in the architecture of consensus mechanisms, randomness research, real-time data services, investment banking, digital securities, traditional stock exchanges, big data, doctoral academia, big 4 consulting, blockchain/DLT, and DeFi.
Together with our developer community and growing list of partners, SupraOracles aims to solve the oracle dilemma and ultimately, power the future of finance.
Panther is a decentralized protocol that enables interoperable privacy in DeFi using zero-knowledge proofs.
Users can mint fully-collateralized, composable tokens called zAssets, which can be used to execute private, trusted DeFi transactions across multiple blockchains.
Panther helps investors protect their personal financial data and trading strategies, and provides financial institutions with a clear path to compliantly participate in DeFi.
