The first half of the year was amazing for Umbrella Network. Milestones reached from January to June included partnership with Knit Finance, Klever Finance, Kommunitas, Flagship and Autobahn Network,among many others. Apart from the partnerships, Umbrella Network developed the Passport Beta, a new product that enables dApps to easily access Layer 2 data as easily as they access the First-Class data.

The Umbrella Network team further worked towards getting the network live on the Solana Mainnet and Arbitrum Mainnet, while also announcing the integration of UniSwap into their pricing feeds.

A whole lot happened in the first half, including the technical aspect of the network.

About Umbrella Network

The Umbrella Network is a decentralized community-owned oracle service that is aimed at providing scalable, low cost and secured data solutions for smart contracts.

With this network, blockchain project developers have access to over 4,000 data pairs, data that was previously unavailable to them.

The scalability and cost-effectiveness feature of this network is as a result of its decentralization nodes being built with Layer 2 Merkle Trees. The Layer 2 Merkle Trees is a solution that helps to bundle numerous (thousands) data pairs into a single transaction. By doing this, the cost of pulling out data is greatly reduced while scalability is increased.

Also, apart from the fact that the collection of data is from several sources to measure the most accurate prices, Umbrella Network operates across a wide network of community validators to confirm the accuracy of data.

Finally, the Umbrella Network is not under the control of a centralized party. It is decentralized and much more, how the network is operated is governed by the community of stakers, developers, validators and the foundation.
