Crowdsourced incubator @DAO_Duck is working with Chainlink to accelerate the development of DeFi projects by helping them integrate Chainlink Price Feeds. This allows teams to focus on core products while obtaining the best-in-industry oracle solutions.
We're excited to award a grant to @block42_company to natively integrate Chainlink on @FantomFDN. This will enable Fantom devs to build high-throughput, externally connected smart contract applications, starting with DeFi dApps using Chainlink Price Feeds.
Chainlink’s goal is “Creating an Economically Fair World.” To further this goal beyond the DeFi ecosystem, we're extending our grant program toward blockchain projects that benefit emerging markets and generally improve society through smart contracts.
