Today, we’re going to review Pyth network, a project garnering much hype in the Solana space.  But, before we begin, let’s start with learning what Pyth network is.

What Is the Pyth Network?

Understanding Pyth’s Use Case

Now, the Pyth network is unlike any other oracle. As of now, it provides real-time data for over 400 low-latency price feeds. These price feeds comprise data from forex, crypto, commodities, and equities.

But, that isn’t all that’s impressive. There are more plus points to Pyth as well, including:

  • Decentralization. Since Pyth is decentralized, its data is more trustworthy and secure.
  • Accuracy. Pyth’s data is highly accurate as it updates every 0.4 seconds.

The State of Pyth Network

For sure, Pyth has seen good traction since its launch. Aside from supporting over 250 dApps, Pyth has:

  • 70,000 daily active users.
  • 2,600,000 daily interactions.
  • Publisher price updates in the millions daily.

With the above activity, Pyth rakes in some daily revenue as well. So far, the network brings in about 50 to 80 $SOL per day. This equates to around USD$5,000 to USD$8,000 of revenue per day.

As they say, the numbers don’t lie. Pyth has made a useful Oracle product. And, much of its target audience is using said product.
