IEX Cloud will initially contribute its real-time market data originating from the IEX Exchange to the Pyth network. We welcome IEX Cloud to our rapidly expanding group of key financial actors who share the goal of distributing precise, high caliber financial data onto the blockchain to revamp. “We built the IEX Cloud business to make financial market data more accessible and so we’re very excited to be part of an ambitious project that supports this mission by providing real-time market data to the blockchain” said Tim Baker, Head of IEX Cloud.
We look forward to further coordinating on and establishing a marketplace of institutional grade, high fidelity financial data to power the Solana and Serum ecosystems as well as those of other major chains.
