Open-source, real-time, always-on data layer for blockchain applications

The world of decentralized finance demands instantly available distributed data. After all, users expect to make trades and access their history whenever they want. Prices change quickly and spikes in traffic can never be predicted.

An always-on, fast data layer provides an uninterrupted user experience without overloading the core transaction layer. The only way that exchanges and payment networks can meet the demands of today’s markets is with speed, transparency, and the power of real-time tools.
