We’re excited to announce that Neutrino has sponsored a new Chainlink Price Feed for USDN/USD on the Ethereum mainnet.
Chainlink Price Feeds supply high-quality data with flash loan protection, enabling Ethereum-based money markets to leverage the USDN/USD Price Feed and easily offer support for USDN, an algorithmic stablecoin pegged to USD and backed by WAVES tokens.
