Where Finance Finds Its Future
SupraOracles is conquering the compromises imposed by the Blockchain Trilemma
The future of blockchain now hinges more than ever on moving beyond crypto-currencies to create the universe of decentralised products and services that almost all characterisations of Web 3.0 endorse. These products and services will make use of the smart contracts pioneered by the entrepreneurs that created the Decentralised Finance (DeFi) and Non-Fungible Token (NFT) markets and which are now building the security token and Metaverse markets as well. The success of products and services built on smart contracts ultimately depends on the ability of the smart contracts to use Oracles to access off-chain sources of price and other data quickly and securely. This is the challenge that SupraOracles, a business established on the basis of academic expertise in 2018, intends to meet by building super-fast Oracles on a high-performing blockchain infrastructure. Dominic Hobson, co-founder of Future of Finance, spoke to Heslin Kim, chief strategy officer and co-founder of SupraOracles.
