Blockchain oracle platform API3 set to launch new solution with crypto data provider Amberdata

API3, a first-party oracle solution providing a seamless Web3 wrapper that enables API providers to offer their data directly on-chain, is set to launch its new solution: Amberdata Beacons, in partnership with crypto-asset data provider Amberdata.


February 11th-20th’s ETHDenver event was chosen as the venue to launch API3’s Beacons, as it remains the largest Web3 hackathon in the world for enthusiasts, designers, and developers. ETHDenver is community-funded and serves as a platform to provide developers with tools and funding.

Introduced in December 2021, API3’s Beacons create a transparent, scalable, and cost-effective solution for data providers to publish data feeds on-chain directly. Beacons represent a unique offering in the ecosystem that is generating excitement among developers and major protocols alike.

“The structure of traditional data feeds conceals where information is sourced, due to a lack of transparency from third-party oracle nodes, ultimately preventing developers from selecting data sources based on their real-world reputations. Beacons improve on this opaque model by harnessing the benefits of first-party oracles, where the data sources feed their data directly on-chain instead of going through 3rd-party intermediaries,” said Heikki Vänttinen, Co-Founder of API3. “Looking ahead, Beacons will be the building blocks of our dAPIs, alongside being offered as a standalone service.”

This partnership between Amberdata and API3 promises to supply developers and protocols with a trusted, comprehensive, and convenient data solution. Built on API3’s open source Airnode, Beacons are continuously updated data feeds, each powered by a single first-party oracle, and make it even easier for Web3 projects to build on API3’s first-party oracle technology.

In tandem with the launch, API3 is serving as the official DeFi Track sponsor of Denver, the largest and longest-running event in the world. As such, API3 representatives will have a strong presence at the event to support developers and ensure they are equipped with the tools and knowledge to successfully build on Amberdata Beacons over the course of the nine-day event.

“At a critical time in the development of Web3, partnering with API3 and its novel first-party oracle solution enables us to reach an even broader audience of developers and projects, ensuring they have the most comprehensive, high-fidelity data to power DeFi and new apps,” said Shawn Douglass, CEO of Amberdata.

Key benefits of API3 Beacons include:

  • Cost-effectiveness: Compared to traditional oracles, Beacons require fewer parties to publish data on-chain. Because data comes from a single provider, reliability is assured without the unnecessary expenses and complications associated with reaching consensus among 3rd-party oracle nodes.
  • Transparency and trustworthiness: Beacons are inherently transparent and more trustworthy compared to oracle nodes operated by 3rd-party middlemen. Reputable data sources themselves are the most incentivized to protect their hard-earned reputations by providing top-quality data.
  • Expansive data sources: Because the technical requirements imposed on providers implementing API3s technology are minimal, providers can easily set up Beacons to offer their data on-chain. More providers signify that API3 will vastly expand the universe of data feeds available to dApp developers.

Ahead of ETHDenver, participants are asked to complete the survey request form found here for the price feeds they would like offered by API3 at the event.
