We’re pleased to announce a partnership with API3. The goals of this partnership are to natively integrate API3’s decentralized API’s, or dAPI’s, as well as Airnode enabled APIs. These will provide Harmony and projects built on top of Harmony with highly reliable, transparent, and decentralized data.

Harmony is committed to supporting developers with all the services and features they need so they can focus on user experience and customer acquisition. Integrating with API3 and the unique data feeds they provide is aligned with that commitment.

API3 shares Harmony’s vision for web 3.0 and is excited about bringing API3 to Harmony’s secure and random state sharding to enable high speed transactions. Thus, we are excited to support them through the hackathon and subsequent integration of API3’s dAPIs — decentralized data feeds that will provide DeFi dapps on Harmony with highly reliable, transparent and decentralized price reference data. — Heikki Vänttinen , Co-founder, API3

Hackathon

To facilitate the integration, Harmony and the API3 DAO will co-host a hackathon featuring an Airnode enabled API as part of the partnership. Details on the hackathon will be announced soon.

A strategic priority for Harmony is to provide the services and features that will enable developers to build amazing applications. We’re excited to partner the API3 team to bring reliable, transparent, and decentralized real-world data to Harmony. We’re pleased that Heikki and the API3 team share this vision, focused on the needs of developers. — Stephen Tse, CEO and Co-founder, Harmony

API3 builds decentrally governed and quantifiably secure data feeds that power Web 3.0 applications without employing third-party intermediaries. Powered by Airnode-enabled first-party oracles, API3’s dAPI’s are fully decentralized and blockchain-native APIs with quantifiable security. Read our full whitepaper here.
