What Is Adapter?

Adapter is an abstraction for a set of data coming from different sources but representing the same underlying information (e.g. price of BTC in various exchanges or temperature in Seoul measured wit different sensors at various locations across the city).

Every adapter has adapterHash, name, decimals and feeds property. adapterHash is a unique adapter identifier that is computed from all adapter properties except the adapterHash itself. It is defined for safety reasons so nobody can accidentally modify the adapter without anybody noticing. name property concisely describes the purpose of adapter. decimals property represents a number of decimal points in which the values returned from adapter are encoded. The values extracted from feeds are stored in an integer format and decimal points are stored separately. feeds property is the most important one. It contains a list of various data sources and defines how each data point should be post-processed.

The example of adapter for BTC-USD with a Binance as a single data source and 8 decimals.

  "adapterHash": "0xe63985ed9d9aae887bdcfa03b53a1bea6fd1acc58b8cd51a9a69ede43eac6235",
  "name": "BTC-USD",
  "decimals": 8,
  "feeds": [
      "name": "Binance-BTC-USD",
      "definition": {
        "url": "",
        "headers": {
          "Content-Type": "application/json"
        "method": "GET",
        "reducers": [
            "function": "PARSE",
            "args": [
            "function": "POW10",
            "args": 8
            "function": "ROUND"

List Adapters

All registered adapters can be listed with adapter list command. If you want to see only adapters for a specific chain, you can use the --chain parameter.

orakl-cli adapter list

Insert New Adapter

Adapter definition can become quite lengthy when there is more than one data source. For this reason we support the registration of new adapter through the --source parameter which can point to the JSON adapter file on your local computer, or to JSON adapter file hosted on web.

You can use predefined adapter definitions from the Orakl Network Data Feed Configuration page.

orakl-cli adapter insert \
    --source ${pathOrUrlToAdapterJsonFile}
  • example

orakl-cli adapter insert --source

Remove Adapter Specified By id

Adapter that is not associated with any aggregator can be removed. The adapter to remove is specified by its id. To remove adapter apply an --id parameter to adapter remove command.

orakl-cli adapter remove \
    --id ${id}
  • example

orakl-cli adapter remove --id 15
