Our weighted signature oracle framework Pythia provides a host of benefits, including understandable and modular oracle interfaces, intrinsic efficiency, risk and cost localization, and profound extensibility. Our custom prediction market solution, Omphalos, has also been crafted with this model in mind, and was designed to capitalize on the same advantages. The two frameworks are built around intercompatibility and synergy. Combined, they have the potential to herald an information renaissance and push us towards an ideal of ubiquitous transparency and prescience. We consider Pythia to be the most promising distributed oracle solution envisioned to date, and Omphalos to be its killer app.
