We are pleased to announce that ORAO is partnering with TRON Network. As shared by TRON today on Accesswire, investing.com and coinquora, our oracle network will integrate with the TRON blockchain to provide a wide variety of general data, expanding the data market for a chain that many oracles are not able to support.

About TRON

Tron is a smart contract compatible blockchain founded in 2017, with blocks being completely confirmed within 15 seconds. As such it is a chain that can take excellent advantage of oracles and external/cross-chain data. Despite this it has so far received only limited support from older…


Dear community. We are pleased to announce that in addition to the gate.io listing, we will also be listing on Uniswap, at approximately 18:00 UTC on May 3rd. With the upcoming listings, we also wanted to do a deep dive on the tokenomics of ORAO.

The TGE has completed successfully. Our token address is 0xEE1CeA7665bA7aa97e982EdeaeCb26B59a04d035.

A Brief Thank You to our Community

We want to thank everyone who participated in our sales for your support. Our sale on gate.io reached the target staking amount 72 times over, and each of you had to settle for buying far fewer tokens than originally estimated. For the team of course…


Today we are pleased to announce our partnership with PolkaFoundry, a one-stop solution for developers creating dApps for decentralized finance and the NFT market on Polkadot. Like ORAO they put a heavy emphasis on interoperability, and so they are a natural partner for our cross-chain oracle network.

Per this partnership, PolkaFoundry will integrate ORAO’s oracles into its one-stop production hub for DeFi dApps building on Polkadot. ORAO’s oracles will provide these dApps with high speed access to cross-chain and external data. …


ORAO’s Token Generation Event is fast approaching, and it’s going to be an exciting time for all of us. In honour of the TGE and our first listing, we have decided to hold a meme creation contest.

  5. We will select up to three winners. Each winner will…


Today we did an AMA with the Elrond community, following our recent partnership announcement. So we figured we should collect the questions and answers in one place for those who missed it. There are some excellent questions in this AMA, so it’s well worth a read.

The participants were Nikola (Nik) Strahija, our CEO, and Tobias Lönnell, our content and community manager. Without further ado:

Moderator: 🤝We are excited to start the AMA with ORAO.

Tobias: Hello, everyone! Excited to be here.

Nik: Hello everyone!

Moderator: Let’s start with a short introduction, tell us how did you guys discover blockchain…


Today we had an AMA with gate.io’s Russian community. Participating were Nik, our CEO, and Tobias, our community and content manager. Together with the organizers we chose three questions to introduce ourselves, and then opened up for the AMA proper, with questions from their community.

Moderator: What got you into crypto to start with?

Nik: The first crypto I held was bitcoin back in 2010–2011 and I received it as payment for a small project I built for a Canadian client. Fast forward to 2015 I provided data to Fortune Top 20 companies which is how I gained experience with…


Dear everyone. We are very happy to announce that our smart contract audit was successful with no significant issues found which puts us one step closer to the launch of Orao.

During the past week we have been planning our next steps and initially wanted to have the TGE on this upcoming Monday. However, as the token launch is an important moment in the development of every project, it is important that everything lines up perfectly for the big day. For that reason, we will be postponing the TGE for 3 weeks in order to allow us the time to…


We are at a pivotal time in the crypto space. Ethereum is struggling with congestion and incredibly punishing transaction costs. Layer two solutions and sharding are in the works, but the market is overheating right now.

This has led to the spotlight finally landing on a number of competing baselayers for the DeFi space. Among these, we are excited to announce that we have partnered with Elrond, a very promising network that uses Adaptive State Sharding to solve the painful bottlenecks Ethereum is suffering from better than even Ethereum’s own planned sharding solution will.

Adaptive State Sharding meets Predefined Data Protocols

One of the key strengths of…


Today we did an AMA with Mariela Tanchez of gate.io, and we figured we should collect the questions and answers in one place for those who missed it.

The participants were Nikola (Nik) Strahija, our CEO, and Tobias Lönnell, our content and community manager. Without further ado:

Mariela: let’s start with you guys first! … Tell us about how you entered the crypto space and how your background contributed to your early successes.

Nik: The first crypto I held was bitcoin back in in 2010–2011 and I received it as payment for a small project I built for a Canadian…


Smart Contracts serve an incredible function in eliminating middlemen and allowing for decentralized applications nobody could even dream of a decade ago. However, being a construct existing entirely on the blockchain, they have some severe limitations. Smart contracts can never reach out directly into the world to learn new information. This of course is where oracles come in, to secure a market where data can be trusted through economic incentives. But what data do smart contracts need, and what are the difficulties in providing it?

Early Oracles and Financial Data

Perhaps not surprisingly given the nature of cryptocurrencies, the first data products supported by oracles…
