2021 at a Glance: Partnerships

Throughout this year, a variety of projects with use cases ranging from DEXs, NFT marketplaces, yield protocols, stablecoins, launchpads and more have put their trust into DIA’s transparent oracles. Let’s have a look at DIA’s partnerships during 2021.

DeFi Applications

From lending networks to synthetic asset platforms, DeFi projects are reliant on accurate and reliable price points to operate and build great products. Since 2021, DIA is delivering fully transparent oraclised data feeds to a growing number of DeFi products:

  • Dafi: Dafi’s mission is to solve the problem of excess token supply of the decentralised economies.
