Zilliqa, the public blockchain platform, is integrating with Chainlink, a decentralised oracle network that connects smart contracts with real-world data, to enable an ecosystem of data-driven smart contracts.
The collaboration will allow Zilliqa smart contracts to easily retrieve and query external data feeds through a custom Chainlink adapter, enabling access to real-time information such as exchange rates, market prices, voting results, weather forecasts, derived from other public blockchains and cloud service providers.
Amrit KUMAR, President and Chief Scientific Officer at Zilliqa said:
“Collaboration with Chainlink will enable us to deliver an exciting value proposition to our developer community and our end users. As we continue to explore more solutions in the realm of decentralised finance, access to secure and reliable price feeds will be integral to the growing diversity of the Zilliqa ecosystem. We look forward to seeing exciting new applications on our network such as decentralised exchanges, trading platforms, and many other crypto-integrated financial services.”
Having launched its mainnet on May 30, 2019, Chainlink is designed to address the smart contract connectivity problem by facilitating connections between traditional data providers and smart contract platforms. Chainlink has successfully attained partnerships with Google as an official Cloud Partner, and banking technology provider SWIFT.
