We are excited to announce that KyberSwap is now using Chainlink Price Reference Data to update our asset prices. This allows users to verify on-chain the price of assets whenever they are performing a token swap. Chainlink’s price feeds will complement our existing Kyber Network feeds.

Enhancing Price Data for Traders

Currently, KyberSwap’s price feeds are taken exclusively from Kyber Network. While using Kyber Network as an on-chain feed for token prices is viable, users are recommended to take adequate measures to verify the rate obtained on Kyber with multiple other price feeds to ensure the most accurate market rate when making a swap.

By referencing Chainlink’s price feeds for supported tokens, KyberSwap enhances the reliability of key price feeds that users count on for calculating slippage rates. Adding Chainlink Reference Data also hardens KyberSwaps’s security, further safeguarding against price manipulation by malicious parties. When swapping tokens, market reference prices are now displayed on KyberSwap as deriving from both Chainlink and Kyber Network.

Smart Contracts provide the ability to execute tamper-proof digital agreements, which are considered highly secure and highly reliable. In order to maintain a contract’s overall reliability, the inputs and outputs that the contract relies on need to be as secure as the underlying blockchain.

Chainlink offers a framework for building decentralized oracle networks. Developers can aggregate multiple independent oracles and multiple data sources to create a manipulation resistant data point that is reliably delivered to the smart contract. This allows decentralized applications to interact with off-chain resources while retaining their end-to-end security.

The Chainlink Network provides the largest collection of reliable on-chain price reference data for DeFi. All Chainlink price reference data feeds are secured by decentralized oracle networks, which source data from numerous premium data aggregators to maintain strong market coverage across all trading environments. Each of the Price Reference Feeds are transparent and viewable here.

KyberSwap is glad to work with a reputable project like Chainlink and its decentralized oracle network to provide reliable price feeds for our non-custodial token swap platform and improve the overall trader experience.” — Sunny Jain, Head of Product, KyberSwap

“We’re excited to integrate Chainlink Price Reference Data with KyberSwap to bring more security and reliability to the price feeds their traders rely on for calculating slippage.” — Johann Eid, Product Manager on Chainlink
