Band Standard Dataset Upgrade

Band Standard Dataset, Band Protocol’s flagship Oracle product, has undergone a quality assurance process in which the listing criteria has been improved to provide more security to Band’s customers and end users. Symbols listed on the Band Standard Dataset are those that have been verified and passed several criteria including, but not limited to:

  1. Listed on at least 4 sources which are either aggregators or exchanges that Band Protocol supports. Some of these include:
  • CoinGecko
  • CryptoCompare
  • CoinMarketCap
  • Binance
  • Huobi Pro
  • Coinbase Pro

NB. For each centralised exchange source, the minimum daily trading volume must exceed $3Mn. For each aggregator source, the minimum daily trading volume must exceed $6Mn

2. For tokens listed and traded on DEXes, they must have a minimum liquidity of $10Mn

The first criteria guarantees the robustness of our feed in the event that one of the sources is down and/or reports incorrect prices. We can rest assured that Band Oracle would still be able to provide accurate price feeds in a timely manner. The second criteria serves to minimise the possibility of prices being easily manipulated.

As of today, the Band Standard Dataset is composed of 76 cryptocurrencies, 6 foreign exchange rates, and 2 commodities. The Band Standard Dataset is our first-step in entrusting the Band Standard with our partners, be it data users developers, data providers as well as our validators.

NB. this is an on-going process and formal update/addition to our criteria list will be added to this article/subsequent article releases
