We will integrate the UTU Trust API and Creditworthiness API with API3’s Airnode to provide on- and off-chain data accessibility. 

Hello UTU Trust Guardians!

We are excited to announce that we have formed a partnership with API3 to provide a first-party oracle connection for developers looking to integrate our AI-powered APIs!

Read on to learn more about API3 and how we’ll work together. 

UTU API3 partnership

What is API3?

API3 is leading the movement from legacy third-party oracle networks to first-party oracle solutions that deliver more security, efficiency, regulatory compliance, and simplicity.

How will UTU and API3 work together?

First, we will make our Trust API and Creditworthiness API accessible via API3’s Airnode first-party oracle. This means that developers who want to increase trust of their marketplace dApps can use API3 to easily integrate our Trust API, and developers building lending dApps can do the same with our Creditworthiness API. 

Through API3’s Airnode, we will bridge data and services between our APIs and multiple blockchains where API3 is deployed. 

Our AI-based Trust API provides improved rating and review functionality and uses on- and off-chain data to deliver personalized recommendations for marketplace applications. 

Our Creditworthiness API also uses artificial intelligence and various datasets to increase the accuracy of creditworthiness assessments to facilitate undercollateralized loans and financial inclusion for both traditional and decentralized finance. 

Additionally, UTU is now part of the API3 Alliance, a strategic coalition of API providers who believe that we should be able to share the same data and services we currently offer to web applications directly to Web3 consumers, without having to rely on third-party middlemen.

Finally, UTU and API3 will explore the use of Airnode for delivering and tracking the UTU Trust Token (UTT) across chains. 

Users in the UTU ecosystem receive UTT for providing accurate reviews and sharing data with the protocol. UTT is non-transferable but can be converted into UTU Coin, but not the other way around, which prevents users from “buying trust”.

“UTU and API3 share the vision that real-world trust and reputation will continue to play an increasingly prominent role in the decentralized web. As Web3 becomes mainstream, APIs such as those from UTU are necessary to bridge the physical world and the blockchain.”

Heikki Vanttinen, API3

“Our mission to bridge the way we trust in the real world and how we’re asked to trust online continues to come to fruition through this partnership with API3. They are helping bridge the gap between blockchains and the rest of the digital world, which is exactly what we’re doing with our Trust and Creditworthiness APIs. We can’t wait to grow data accessibility together through this connection with API3.”

Jason Eisen, CEO and Co-founder of UTU
