Our goal in running a Chainlink node is to support a strong team that’s working on solving the “the oracle problem,” the inability for smart contracts to obtain secure and reliable off-chain connectivity.
Chainlink is not yet decentralized. Therefore, staking or node operation services are not yet available for LINK token holders.
Contact us for more information on when these services will be available.
The ChainLink Network is a decentralized network of Chainlink Nodes, which are all selling usage of specific data feeds, APIs and various off-chain payment capabilities directly to a smart contract.
Chainlink aims to provide secure and reliable oracles. They work with large enterprises (Google, Oracle and SWIFT) and have integrated with leading smart contract development teams (Web3/Polkadot, Hedera Hashgraph, Harmony, Zilliqa, and more).
Chainlink is secure blockchain middleware that intends to connect smart contracts across blockchains by allowing smart contracts to access key off-chain resources such as data feeds, web APIs, and traditional bank account payments.
The Chainlink ecosystem revolves around the LINK token and the LINK network. Through the release of APIs and other platforms, the developers plan to enhance the applicability and usability of smart contracts across the business world.
