Two Sigma Securities, a quantitative liquidity provider and market-maker has joined forces with Chainlink, the industry-standard smart contract oracle network, to provide its high-quality market data to the decentralized oracles of the network, as part of its effort to ensure the success and sustainability of the decentralized finance (DEFI) ecosystem.
