I've been learning about the chainlink so far i understand how it works and what it's suppose to accomplish, what I don't understand is why is there value associated to it.
Consider a database with a storage capacity of 100 GB, and anyone on that has a 1 GB can freely store their content on the database. how is it possible that there's a market for the storage?
It seems to me that if there's a limited supply of these chainlink, the founders would be better off keeping those coins to themselves and distribute them for smart contracts as they occur.
When you pay for 1 chainlink, what do you get in return besides a coin?
