“To make decentralized applications become really useful, the real-world data which is used within those applications must be trustworthy and accurate. We are confident that Band Protocol will set a new standard for decentralized data oracle design leveraging their ability to meet real-time data requests and end-to-end customizability.”
Jeeuk Lim, Operations & Communications of Node A-Team
“Band Protocol is excited to have the support of a top-tier Cosmos validator, Node A-Team, alongside for the BandChain mainnet launch.

About Band Protocol
Band Protocol is a cross-chain data oracle platform that aggregates and connects real-world data and APIs to smart contracts. Blockchains are great at immutable storage and deterministic, verifiable computations — however, they cannot securely access data available outside the blockchain networks. Band Protocol enables smart contract applications such as DeFi, prediction markets, and games to be built on-chain without relying on the single point of failure of a centralized oracle. Band Protocol is backed by a strong network of stakeholders including Sequoia Capital, one of the top venture capital firms in the world, and the leading cryptocurrency exchange, Binance.
