SMARTKEY AND CHAINLINK TO COLLABORATE IN GOVERNMENT-APPROVED BLOCKCHAIN PROJECT TO POWER SMART CITIES OF THE FUTURE | by Radek Krzycki SmartKey COO & Evangelist | Nov 2020
I've been contacted by other places that basically pay me to be a data provider. Would this kind of data have a market on Chainlink? Its a convenience store, so the big numbers are gallons/day, price/gallon, dollars/day inside sales, etc. I'm a newbie at Chainlink, so I'm not clear if this data is valuable to anyone really? Maybe I'm underestimating it? Or maybe I'm overestimating it!
Chainlink Jumps Above $15.60 for First Time in 12 Weeks on Surging Active Addresses on the LINK Network - Santiment Insights
What is the incentive to run a node? Do you get revenue in LINK when you fulfill requests?
US citizen here. I got an email saying that I need to transfer my Links from Binance. What is a user friendly external wallet that is recommended? Thanks!
I am no expert in any sense of the word on either Ethereum or Chainlink. However, I am aware that likely in the next month or so Eth2 will launch. I am unsure what exactly this means in a practical sense for ETH as it exists now (ie is this a total replacement or on a day to day basis will it appear more as upgrades to the existing architecture?). Furthermore, given ethereum and chainlink’s symbiosis, what will this launch likely mean for chainlink?
Weekly Wrap: This Week In Chainlink November 16 - November 22
Announcements and Integrations ?
Ethereum sidechain @MaticNetwork has successfully integrated Chainlink natively on its mainnet. Chainlink oracles can now be used by Matic's growing DeFi ecosystem to maintain collateralization, price synthetic assets, settle prediction markets, & more.
Leading Ethereum-based blockchain game @AxieInfinity will use both Chainlink Price Feeds & VRF. Axie is using the ETH/USD Price Feed to set exchange rates for purchasing Axies on its marketplace & VRF to generate provably fair NFTs w/ rare mystic traits.
Through our documentation, @BaseProtocol launched a POC Chainlink oracle for aggregated crypto market cap data. Now transitioning to mainnet, Base Protocol is using the Chainlink Network to decentralize its rebasing mechanism for enhanced oracle security.
@SynLevDefi, synthetic leveraged asset pairs tokenized on Ethereum, is using Chainlink Price Feeds live on mainnet to obtain fair market valuations on the underlying assets. Chainlink ensures these assets are accurately priced in a decentralized manner.
@value_defi will use Chainlink Price Feeds to relaunch its MultiStables Vault with guarantees around data quality, oracle security & full market coverage. The integration will protect the Vault against flash loan attacks & other on-chain oracle exploits.
Decentralized law protocol @paid_network will use Chainlink VRF to pick random arbitrators used to settle disputes. Chainlink VRF is a secure, transparent way of ensuring that all qualified judges have fair odds of selection.
We’re thrilled to award a Community Grant to @irisnetwork for a native integration of Chainlink into @bsnbase. This integration will enable governments and enterprises throughout the world to build universally connected smart contracts on BSN.
What’s New for Developers ?
The ecosystem of Decentralized Finance (DeFi) applications and the value secured by blockchain oracles are scaling in tandem, mutually supporting the success and growth of one another. As the value secured by DeFi continues to grow at a rapid pace, so does the importance of ensuring that this revolutionary new decentralized financial ecosystem provides a higher level of security and reliability guarantees to its users.
Chainlink nodes run the secure oracle infrastructure that supplies dApps with off-chain data. Using our docs, learn how to launch your own Chainlink node to either build a Proof of Concept oracle for testing or earn revenue by selling data to blockchains.
Chainlink Price Feeds secure billions in value for leading DeFi dApps. Start leveraging them in your smart contracts by using our docs to find mainnet & testnet addresses of oracle networks that provide tamper-proof price data for all the top asset pairs.
We're committed to providing developers with decentralized price oracles resistant to flash loans. Integrate our DAI/USD Price Feed to build new markets around one of DeFi's most popular stablecoins, already used & supported by @DMMDAO and @CelsiusNetwork.
We continue to put more data on-chain so smart contract developers can build advanced DeFi dApps. Integrate our new TUSD Proof of Reserve oracles for data on both its off-chain reserves & on-chain supply to ensure full collateralization of TUSD collateral.

yesterday I did something stupid, i accidentally used the wrong network transfer (BEP20) instead of the ETH blockchain, which the wallet that I was sending to supports it. Is there anyway I can retrieve my link back?
Insurwave already uses Chainlink for smart contracts and off chain data. This article talks about how they want to take insurance and re-insurance to the next level, parametric. Not just simple shipping insurance.
Hey guys were are y’all storing your stash. Is it better to store in ether wallet?
Dated early October, but lays out pretty clear examples of decentralized smart contract insurance works, and what is out there. Easy read. Not technical. Definitely written for those who know little about smart contracts, blockchain, oracles, etc.https://blogs.gartner.com/avivah-litan/2020/10/01/defi-insurance-available-ahead-of-more-blockchain-dapps-and-regulation/?_ga=2.226562142.291170035.1606008351-330876600.1606008351

Short academic survey: What makes you as a Blockchain user more unique than non-users? We need you to evaluate your use of the Blockchain Technology! Personal information disclosure is voluntary for compensation! More info in description.
Why haven't many industries adopted Blockchain as predicted? Why is the adoption rate so low? More importantly, what makes current users unique from the late majority?
We are a group of students from Berlin and we are conducting a survey for academic research about user acceptance in the context of Blockchain to answer these questions.
Please take a minute to fill out this survey, it's really short!! There's a chance of receiving an Amazon Coupon (15€ and 50€), we're doing a raffle with emails provided voluntarily.
Your participation will help us immensely! The link to the survey on Google Forms:
