Orbs Unveils Open DeFi Notifications Protocol
Public blockchain infrastructure for mass usage of applications Orbs recently shared details about the Open DeFi Notification Protocol.
For the uninitiated, the Open DeFi Notification Protocol is a chain-agnostic protocol that has its roots in the DeFi.Org Accelerator which is a joint venture between Orbs, leading crypto exchange Binance, and crypto wallet provider Moonstake.
To date, the DeFi.Org Accelerator has aided in the launch of a number of innovative projects in the DeFi space, provided liquidity, valuable mentorship, and exposure to market players.
Notably, the Open DeFi Notification Protocol is Orbs’ latest contribution to the venture. The protocol essentially leverages contributions from community members to record events such as accumulated pending rewards, price swings, near liquidations, stop loss, contract upgrades, and new governance votes, among others.
By obtaining access to the aforementioned data points, DeFi users such as traders and liquidity providers would be in a better position to manage their activities and avoid losses that are often heightened during increased market volatility.
The protocol makes it easy for any DeFi project to provide free mobile notifications to its users. To enable this, the project is only required to undergo a 30 minute long integration on Github.
Commenting on the development, Tal Kol, Co-founder, Orbs, said:
“Transparency is a hallmark of blockchain, yet reliable mobile notifications that can aid the DeFi community are virtually nonexistent.”
“Our talented team has created a user-friendly protocol that functions almost like a reactive DeFi assistant, alerting users to the possibility of impending liquidations, significant price swings, contract upgrades and the like. We are positive it will make a huge impact.”
Aiming Toward Complete Decentralization
While the initial beta version of the Open DeFi Notification Protocol uses a centralized node to track and display the different updates, Orbs intends to eventually launch an updated, decentralized version of the protocol that leverages the network’s set of independent nodes for further security.
The Open DeFi Notifications Protocol allows users to set up any number of alerts for various DeFi apps. The users can also integrate an open-source web component directly within dApps’ frontend architecture.
To do this, users only need to download the mobile app “DeFi Notifications” for iOS or Android and scan their address in QR in MetaMask web wallet. The protocol requires no registration.
