Chainlink (LINK), the crypto of connection in the spotlight

Aron Abraham

How can two people who speak different languages communicate? The solution is fairly simple: they hire a translator, who knows both. Let’s take a look at Chainlink, the builder of bridges between the world of crypto and the “real” world.

Chainlink in a nutshell

Blockchains can have a hard time connecting to data from the real world, mostly because it’s hard for them to agree on which are the correct values to use. Enter Chainlink, that is, according to their official website

“A decentralized network of oracles that enables smart contracts to securely interact with real-world data and services that exist outside of blockchain networks”.

Chainlink’s superpowers

Chainlink works like a trustworthy translation agency: any blockchain can be sure that the data coming from its oracles (individual translators) is properly transformed, validated by the Chainlink network and is ready to use on chain.


Chainlink’s Crypto ID

The Chainlink network is one of the most popular of its kind, and while the basic idea behind its technology is simple, it can be challenging to grasp all the information at once: that’s why we created Chainlink’s Crypto ID, where all that’s important about the network is collected and displayed in a structured and understandable layout.

Are you thinking of buying?

“Research is not for me, it’s boring” - if this is you, the next 15 seconds of reading might change your mind. Even though researching before investing is very important, it’s not long hours of academic sourcing we are talking about. In fact, it is simpler than you might think, here are four steps we’d recommend:

  1. Visit the coin’s official website - in Chainlink’s case, chain.link - and read up on the goals and status of the project;

  2. Analyse price development - this is easy with basic charts in our Bitpanda Web App, or on our iOS and Android apps;

  3. Ask yourself what kind of returns you would like to generate - do you prefer higher, but riskier returns quickly, or long-term results with possibly lower risk? 

  4. And then the ultimate question: will this altcoin help you to comfortably achieve your investment goals? Consider the figures, but don’t silence your intuition
