    DeFi platform Pundi X has recently integrated Chainlink price feeds to power its rewards system and its numerous synthetic assets.

The feeds will also power Pundi X’s synthetic assets on its Decentralized Exchange using accurate data from stocks, ETFs, commodities, and indices.

    The team at Pundi X also highlighted reasons as to why they chose Chainlink price feeds. The firm said that Chainlink price feeds are accurate and sourced from numerous data aggregators and are resistant to data source failures. The price feeds are secure and have a strong record of reliability, it added.
