Founded in 2017, Band protocol is a cross-chained decentralized oracle that links smart contracts to connect and aggregate any external data source without any point of failure.  Such data could even include things like weather, stock, and cryptocurrency prices. Band Protocol aims to create a community where tokens are curated by users, this would allow users to be involved in the process of developing Band protocol. 

How does BAND Protocol (BAND) work?

Band Protocol uses Oracle, allowing decentralized network applications that rely on high-frequency data to work together. BandChain, an independent blockchain for oracles, specifically helps in consolidating data from multiple sources, removing outliers, and then conditioning them into a manner that is easy to use across all other blockchains such as Ethereum. 

What is BAND?

BAND is the native token for BAND protocol. It is used to pay for transaction fees on BandChain, this means that when there is an increase in BAND oracles, there will also be more transactions in fees, which in return rewards BAND users. BAND token can also be used for protocol governance, allowing a say in the decision-making process.
