What is Band Protocol (BAND) crypto?

Band Protocol (BAND) is a cross-chain oracle platform providing real-world data to on-chain apps. It connects APIs to smart contracts while facilitating data exchange between on-chain and off-chain.

The network provides verifiable real-world data to blockchains. On the other hand, developers can use the data, including sports, weather, numbers, price, etc., for decentralized applications.

In 2019, it launched the ERC-20 project on the Ethereum blockchain. And in June 2020, it transformed into a Cosmos Network with the launch of Band Protocol 2.0.
