Airnode (API3)

    An airnode is an oracle node that is designed to be easily deployable by API providers who want to participate in the API3 blockchain protocol and bring their data feeds on-chain. Airnode allows API providers to run their own node with minimal maintenance, allowing them to connect their API data feeds to smart contract platforms. When an API provider uses an airnode, they become a first-party oracle, providing data directly to the blockchain without the use of intermediary nodes.
