Nym Will Soon Launch NymVPN

Nym Technologies, a project supported by Binance Labs and Andreessen Horowitz, has unveiled a groundbreaking development set to redefine the landscape of online privacy. In early 2024, they plan to introduce NymVPN, a decentralized VPN solution that integrates a decentralized VPN and a mixnet into the same network. Unlike conventional VPNs that direct all user traffic through a single server, NymVPN distributes traffic across a network of nodes. This approach heightens the security and privacy of online activities, offering users a superior level of protection.

The benefits of NymVPN are extensive. With this new technology, users can expect their online activities to be more secure and discreet, as their data won’t pass through a single, potentially vulnerable server. This decentralized structure substantially reduces the risk of data breaches and cyberattacks. Furthermore, NymVPN’s innovative approach aligns with the growing concerns about online privacy, ensuring that users’ sensitive information remains private and protected.

Chainlink Data Feeds Now Live On Linea

Chainlink Data Feeds, a decentralized oracle network offering data solutions for DeFi and other sectors, are now live on Linea, a zkEVM rollup powered by ConsenSys. These feeds enable developers to construct secure applications on Linea, utilizing reliable and decentralized market data among various data types. The integration aims to broaden user access to a thriving application ecosystem rich in features.

Further elaborating on the integration, Chainlink Data Feeds provide an array of on-chain reference contracts, each backed by independent decentralized oracle networks (DONs), ensuring robust security and high-quality node operation. With the native integration into Linea, developers can harness Linea’s scalable zk-rollup architecture to build high-performance web3 protocols with the assurance of Chainlink’s oracle security. The comprehensive coverage, premium data quality, and multilayered security of Chainlink’s infrastructure, particularly for Price Feeds, have already secured vast amounts of on-chain value within DeFi. This development paves the way for creating advanced web3 applications that scale with user growth and increasing total value locked (TVL).
