Pyth Network Wants to Go Fast

Oracle attack vectors have received a lot of thoughtful treatments, probably none more so then Samczsun’s take here. In closing, he prudently advises use of TWAPs and more robust aggregation. The tradeoff with TWAPs, of course, is the lack of responsiveness that is well acknowledged in the article. The bleeding edge of financial applications require fast oracles, however, which means not only quick updates, but also no speed bumps along the way. This is why the Pyth network focuses on highly robust aggregation.
