Growing ecosystem of node operators incentivized to increase the security of price feeds
Numerous tools built by the ecosystem provide transparency and full visibility for the price feeds and the teams participating in them. This gives you confidence that the feeds are reporting properly at all times.
"Given our reliance on regular price feeds for our derivatives trading mechanism, finding a robust decentralized oracle solution has always been at the top of our priority list. Chainlink delivers the solution, deployed by an excellent team and supported by an invaluable community."
"Chainlink helped us reduce our time to market, while at the same time providing the highest guarantee of data integrity, decentralization and security."
"The oracle system is core to the Ampleforth protocol. Integrating and working with a trusted partner like Chainlink to ensure reliable data feeds decentralizes the oracle system key to Ampleforth’s future."
“Integrating Chainlink’s Price Reference Contracts as the basis for rebalancing our capital pool brings tremendous security to our members, who know that our most important assets are deeply insulated against any known or unexpected attack vectors.”
Node operators are independent actors, distributed around the world, who are responsible for connecting high-quality data to smart contracts.
Node operators are rewarded by a community of users who contribute to the well-being of the price feeds they rely on.
A community of users votes on changes and improvements to the current price feeds and is responsible for their administration.
Data aggregators are professional service providers with a history of accurately curating key data points from various exchanges and providing the most reliable prices to the ecosystem. These resilient service providers support the Chainlink Network and are leveraged by node operators to provide accurate price feeds to the ecosystem.
Node operators are the bridge between an on-chain price feed and an API. They run secure blockchain infrastructure that allows them to plug into virtually any type of API endpoint. Node operators on the Chainlink Network are fully transparent and identifiable, with strong existing reputations in the blockchain space, verifiable by DeFi developers.
