In mid October 2022, Acurast, allows developers to integrate price feeds, verifiable randomness, or any other off-chain data or computation for their decentralized applications in various ecosystems such as Polkadot, Tezos, NEAR and more.

Acurast has reimagined the concept of a decentralized serverless cloud, creating a zero trust platform where developers can access real world data and computation provided by processors, within their applications through a permissionless platform.

Processors offer their computation to developers and process Acurast Jobs in the Acurast Zero Trust Execution Layer that utilizes Trusted Execution Environments (TEE) such as the Android TEE, available in consumer Android devices, to ensure the trustlessness of Acurast’s system. Acurast is not dependent on one TEE and can support others such as the one from Taurus in the future.

Developers are empowered to build with the flexibility they need to get off-chain data or computation for their use case without centralized approvals and to develop without restriction. How and where to get data or computation is completely up to the developers.

Jean-Philippe Aumasson, Taurus Co-Founder and Chief Security Officer:

“Sound oracle solutions are key to secure decentralized financial applications. Acurast leverages trusted execution environment technology available in consumer hardware to offer a solution that is both secure and scalable. We are pleased to act as an Acurast Processor to further strengthen the independence of off-chain data used in the industry thanks to Acurast.”

Alessandro DeCarli, Acurast Co-Founder:

“We are excited to see Taurus join Acurast as a Processor. We know Taurus as the leading institutional custody provider with unparalleled high-end engineering, enabling institutions globally the access to the blockchain world. We feel very proud and honoured to onboard Taurus on this journey and appreciate their trust in our security model. ”
