Umbrella Network Announces Partnership with Armor Finance

Armor Finance to source data for their innovative Shield Vaults from Umbrella Network’s decentralized oracles

  • However, the complex and demanding data requirements for these products were difficult for other oracles to handle effectively
  • Via a partnership with Umbrella Network, Armor Finance will be able to fulfill their data needs — comprehensive, low-cost, secure, and up-to-date!

What Did Armor Finance Need For Their DeFi Innovation?

Armor Finance’s Shield Vaults enable users to wrap underlying tokens into coverage bearing tokens — the yield from the tokens takes care of the coverage premiums, effectively creating an endless insurance coverage for the token holder’s assets.

How Do Umbrella Network’s Decentralized Oracles Process and Serve Huge Volumes of Data, cost-effectively?

Umbrella Network’s Merkle Tree architecture enables their layer-2 solution to batch thousands of community-validated data points into one transaction before commitment to the Blockchain.

This leads to massive savings when compared to processing every data point as a different transaction.

These savings in transaction costs lead to a series of benefits that enable Umbrella Network to:

  • Offer at significantly lower costs per data point (over 99% cheaper than leading competitors)
  • Update data points frequently (every 1 to 3 minutes currently Vs. once a day compared to other oracles)
  • Append cryptographic proofs to data points for veracity of data integrity even after it has been sourced by the dApp smart contracts
