Two Sigma Securities, a quantitative hedge fund with about $60 billion in assets under management, will provide data to popular blockchain information network Chainlink, according to a press release provided to CoinDesk.

Chainlink offers price feeds and other data through its oracle network, which can help Web3 developers get projects off the ground faster. Two Sigma’s market data includes swaps, options and other derivative-related information. The addition comes a week after financial services firm Galaxy Digital joined Chainlink to offer crypto pricing data to blockchains.
