Chainlink oracle, information feeds coming to StarkNet ecosystem

Blockchain scaling expertise agency StarkWare is about to companion with Chainlink Labs to convey oracle companies, information and worth feeds to the StarkNet ecosystem.

The coalition will see StarkWare be a part of Chainlink’s Scale program and brings Chainlink worth feeds to StarkNet’s testnet. StarkNet tokens may even fund sure working prices for Chainlink oracle nodes, giving Starket builders entry to Chainlink oracle companies and information feeds.

Chainlink is a decentralized oracle community that permits good contracts to securely entry off-chain information sources, APIs and cost programs. It permits good contracts to work together with real-world information and occasions, making it potential for them to be triggered by information from exterior sources.
