With Acurast, developers can integrate price feeds, verifiable randomness, or any other off-chain data or computation into their decentralized applications across Polkadot, Tezos, and NEAR ecosystems.

Acurast has revolutionized the process of bringing external data to the blockchain, allowing developers access to real-world information and specialist computing by Data Transmitters.

Through the utilization of Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs), such as Iceberg Nodes, Defi initiatives like Youves can acquire pricing updates from Acurast outside of the blockchain.

This freedom has been extended to developers. Acurast supports a variety of TEEs, encompassing current and future technologies, so coders can retrieve off-chain data or computation without relying on central approvals and have unrestricted choice as to how they go about it.

Luca Poggi, Founder and CEO Iceberg Nodes:

“Iceberg Nodes, validators and collators in the Polkadot and Kusama ecosystems, considers the work that Acurast is doing, providing reliable on-chain oracle data, of extreme importance for Web3 mass adoption. By bringing off-chain data on-chain accessible through its marketplace, Acurast permits to developers to develop dApps that use real world data. To support the project and give our contribution to decentralization of the oracle data, we at Iceberg Nodes decided to become one of the Acurast data transmitters.“

Alessandro DeCarli, Acurast co-founder:

“We are elated to welcome Iceberg Nodes to the Acurast family as a Data Transmitter. Their expert engineering has placed them at the forefront of blockchain technology and given institutions around the world the opportunity to access it. We take immense pride in this collaboration and are humbled that Iceberg Nodes have chosen to put their faith in our security model.”
