Welcome back! In today’s feature of the Ergo Cast we will be providing a top-down coverage of Ergo’s latest innovation: Decentralized Oracle Pools. To direct us on this journey we are lucky enough to have both minds behind this milestone, Robert Kornacki & Amitabh Saxena – who will explain each twist and turn that their new model has to offer.

To provide further context we will also be changing pace and examining other topics within the wider ecosystem with a focus on ideas such as Price Feeds, Stablecoins, the Kiosk Library and to top it off – Cardano interoperability. Sit back, relax and tune into the UTXO revolution.
