Chainlink (LINK) is available for buying, trading and transfers on the Voyager app.

Chainlink (LINK), a decentralized oracle service, aims to connect smart contracts with data from the real world. Blockchains do not have the capability to access data outside of their network, thus oracles are needed to function as data feeds in smart contracts. An oracle is a data feed that connects blockchains to off-blockchain data. Their network provides safe and dependable inputs and outputs for elaborate smart contracts on any blockchain.

History

In September of 2014, SmartContract.com was founded to create a bridge between outside data sources and public blockchains. SmartContract.com is the parent company for Chainlink. Before creating Chainlink, they realized there was an oracle problem where smart contracts’ relied on third parties for external data. They worked to address the problem with a new decentralized oracle network, which we now know as Chainlink. Chainlink was created to allow smart contracts to connect to different data feeds from any web API and data source.
