Welcome to Flux
The Trust-less Data Layer
Flux Protocol is an oracle solution that aims to make decentralized, high quality data available to any protocol on any chain. We give Data Providers a direct, secure means to push their data on chain, and give protocols & their end users a safe, secure means to use it.
Flux is supported and developed by the Open Oracle Association, a Swiss Non-Profit entity with the sole purpose of supporting the ecosystem through the distribution of grants both in monetary means through USDC and the Flux Token.

The Oracles

First Party Oracle

Unlike other oracle solutions, our First Party Oracle (FPO) removes the black box or middle man by leaving the data provision up to the experts; the Data Providers (DP). The FPO allows data providers to directly push their data directly on-chain using our open source Provider Node, giving them full autonomy over the data they provide, from source to chain. Protocols can seamlessly connect their contracts to DP data feed contracts, and get along with building.
The FPO is currently subsidized by Flux Protocol to give new protocols the ability to bootstrap reliable, high quality data streams from some of the biggest data providers in DeFi. The costs associated with querying this data is subject to change starting in 2023.

Third Party Oracle

We believe the blockchain is only as decentralized as its most centralized link, so we’re building the Flux Data Layer, a next-generation Proof-of-Stake oracle solution that allows anyone with Flux tokens and reliable data sources to become a validator on our network. Validators will choose the feeds they want to provide data for, select their sources, and can start earning FLX tokens based on their stake and feeds. Honest actors are rewarded for their efforts, and harmful actors are punished by having their staked FLX slashed.

Delegated Staking (Soon)
Think you have the answers? Run a validator node or manually resolve data on the Flux Oracle via the Oracle Explorer
Have a question? Need secure pricing data? Deploy our sample Requester Contract and try the Oracle out for yourself!
No technical knowledge is needed to help power the system -- just stake your tokens with another validator!
