Technical analysis, backgrounds and info on this crypto coin
ChainLink is a decentralized oracle service, the first of its kind. When Ethereum went live in 2015, it revolutionized what blockchain could bring to enterprise solutions and traditional business. Blockchain was no longer just a medium for new-age financial transactions, confined to Bitcoin’s potential to disrupt traditional currency exchange. With Ethereum powered smart contracts, Vitalik Buterin opened up a Pandora’s Box of use cases for blockchain technology. Problem is, per their design, smart contracts can only manage data on the blockchain.

What is Chainlink?
ChainLink’s first component consists of on-chain contracts deployed on Ethereum’s blockchain. These oracle contracts process the data requests of users looking to take advantage of the network’s oracle services. If a user or entity wants access to off-chain data, they submit a user contract (or requesting contract) to ChainLink’s network, and the blockchain processes these requests into their own contracts. These contracts are responsible for matching the requesting contract up with the appropriate oracles. The contracts include a reputation contract, an order-matching contract, and an aggregating contract. The first of these, the reputation contract, is exactly as it sounds: it checks an oracle provider’s track record to verify its integrity.

Chainlink (LINK) nowadays
In 2014, SmartContract.com was founded as a way to bring external data onto the blockchain. From this, Chainlink was born, enabling smart contracts to connect to data feeds from any data source or API. This was a game-changer for the blockchain industry.
The first iteration of Smartcontract.com’s oracle solution was reliant upon centralized oracles, posing a hurdle for the development of the decentralized finance space. This issue was addressed in September 2017 with the introduction of the Chainlink network of decentralized oracles.
After raising $32 million in an ICO, the Chainlink mainnet went live in June 2019. The Chainlink project has become a pillar in the oracle space, and a must-have for all credible DeFi projects.
