Lehman will contribute its unique financial market data across equities, index and cryptocurrencies for consumption by smart contracts using the Solana blockchain and other major blockchains.
Today’s commitment from Lehman adds to a growing list of firms supporting the Pyth Network as the world’s most sophisticated market participants seek better ways to distribute precise, real-time market data using high performance blockchains.
