We are Acria a company with the mission to bring the blockchain scene a huge step forward. One of the most pressing issues when developing smart contracts is the lack of real-world data. But due to technical limitations, such as the consensus protocol, no blockchain has been able to solve this major limitation.
The Acria Network aims to solve exactly this problem with the help of so-called oracle nodes. In addition to that, it aims to implement cross-chain support in order to supply various blockchains with real-world data. Cross-chain functionality will be achieved via the Polkadot ecosystem and Ethereum.
An important advantage of the Acria Network compared to common solutions is the complete lack of middlemen. This in turn increases the quality and trustworthiness of the data provided.The existing solutions offered to provide blockchains with real-world data heavily rely on oracles which function as middlemen that only supply real-world data that is available via various APIs.
This heavily limits the amount of data that can be utilized as well as the trustworthiness of the data provided via those solutions.
