Buy Chainlink Cryptocurrency

LINK is the native token for the Chainlink network (the “Chainlink Network”). The Chainlink Network is a decentralized oracle network that was launched in 2017 by the for-profit company SmartContract. The Chainlink protocol assists blockchain smart contracts by incentivizing oracles (data providers) to accurately verify data inputs and outputs. Smart contracts are agreements that are programmed to execute when certain terms and conditions are met. Smart contracts rely on real-world, external data sources. Since blockchains do not allow for a sufficient connection with external data, the Chainlink Network was created to act as a decentralized bridge between smart contracts and sources of external data.

The problem the Chainlink Network tries to solve is commonly known as the oracle problem. The oracle problem stems from the  fact that smart contracts need real-world data to operate as intended. However, while the rest of the smart contract ecosystem uses blockchain technology which relies on consensus mechanisms for accuracy, the data providers (or oracles) may not be subject to the same constraints. Therefore, smart contracts may need to rely on a centralized source of data, which could potentially provide unreliable or untrustworthy data to the blockchain and undermine the decentralized nature of smart contracts. The Chainlink Network tries to solve this problem by creating a decentralized network of nodes in an attempt to eliminate the reliability and trust issues associated with using only a single centralized source of data. The Chainlink Network attempts to accomplish this goal by using a group of decentralized nodes, assigning those nodes reputation scores and aggregating, weighting and validating the data they provide to ensure that it is reliable and trustworthy.

It should be noted that Chainlink does not operate its own blockchain, and the token can function on many different blockchains at the same time.

In 2017, Sergey Nazarov launched Chainlink and its digital currency, LINK.

The LINK cryptocurrency possesses a supply limit of one billion and is linked to Ethereum. LINK is used to incentivize users to extend and use the off-chain data. The virtual currency also covers the costs of executing smart contract transactions on the Chainlink network.
