Why build on Provenance? 

Building to new protocols can be confusing, time-consuming, and frustrating at times but DataHub connects the dots with pathways for developers to multiple protocols with open APIs. Our platform allows for easy API key management/rotation, and our service plans are easily upgradeable, giving developers the ability to scale their applications quickly. We are excited to partner with Provenance and provide developers access to an open source ecosystem for developing and deploying DeFi apps.

Provenance brings a unique industry advantage as they were founded by Figure in addition to the Provenance Foundation. The founders from Figure have tenured experience in the mortgage lending space and the company’s main mission is to transform the financial service industry through blockchain. Together they created a solution to leverage KYC practices needed to conform with traditional financial institutions and provide a path for Web 2 applications to connect and build applications in Web 3. Provenance provides the foundation to build marketplaces and exchanges for buyers and sellers of digital assets, Figure’s Provenance Marketplace allows financial institutions, banks, credit unions to buy and sell loans through a bidding process and all the data stored on the Provenance blockchain.

For example, Adnales, a cap table management and valuation building on immutable records and instant traceability. Whereas Figure Pay is a gateway application between blockchain and traditional payment platforms and Figure eVault is a platform for immutable records of documents with encrypted keys.

Provenance: Gateway to DeFi Applications  

Provenance has three main layers, modules, smart contracts, and a contract execution environment (CEE). 

Modules: Provide the process for financial applications built by assuring communication and responding to queries, modules are a core part of the blockchain functionality. 

Smart Contract Engine: Based on CosmWasm, the Provenance engine connects to banking and staking modules by default but allows for custom integration and queries. For example, to represent securities a user can create a “restricted marker” to issue a coin and setup a smart contract to enforce custom rules during transactions such as KYC and more.

Contract Execution Environment: An optional layer that focuses on data privacy and Off-Chain client-side agreements.

Provenance Loan Marketplace

Traditional loan marketplaces are outdated, complicated, inefficient and built with old data aggregation tools. Provenance has integrated two- factor authentication as well as digital certificates for identity. Provenance Loan Marketplace customers enjoy the efficiency, transparency and security of executing orders seamlessly.
