Most recently, the Pyth Network announced its integration with the Neon EVM on Dec. 29. The network will provide price feeds available to all the decentralized applications (dApps) building on Neon. 

The integration entails that Ethereum dApps choosing to deploy on Solana through the Neon EVM can now easily access high-level price feeds from Pyth to enhance their protocol’s operations.

What is Pyth Network?

The genesis of the Pyth Network happened in a bid to solve the oracle problem in DeFi. Essentially DeFi protocols rely on high-fidelity, time-sensitive, real-world data and price feeds, but they have no ways of accessing it as they are based on blockchains that aren’t connected to real-world data. The network attempts to deliver a decentralized, cross-chain market of verifiable data from high-quality nodes.
