Blockchains and Oracles: Similarities, Differences, and Synergies

Blockchains and oracles are both critical network infrastructure to developing decentralized applications (dApps) and use similar security approaches like cryptography, decentralized consensus, and cryptoeconomic incentives. However, they also differ in network architecture, service offerings, node composition, and their overall purpose. These differences are synergistic and combine to form hybrid smart contracts—smart contracts that retain the … Read more

Explicit Staking in Chainlink 2.0: An Overview

The recently released Chainlink 2.0 Whitepaper introduces a variety of innovations aimed at significantly improving the capabilities of Decentralized Oracle Networks (DONs), most notably by enabling DONs to perform secure off-chain computations. With DONs providing smart contracts access to a wider array of decentralized services beyond data delivery, a more expansive hybrid infrastructure becomes available … Read more

What Is a Zero-Knowledge Proof (ZKP)?

While the inherent transparency of blockchains provides an advantage in many situations, there are also a number of smart contract use cases that require privacy due to various business or legal reasons such as using proprietary data as inputs to trigger a smart contract’s execution. An increasingly common way privacy is achieved on public blockchain … Read more

Bringing Sports Markets to Blockchains Using Smart Contracts and Chainlink Oracles

The sports industry is on track to surpass $600 billion in value by 2022. One of the emerging trends for the sector is sports markets running on top of blockchains using hybrid smart contracts—tamper-proof blockchain applications that automate processes using traditional API data. These hybrid smart contracts bring many new opportunities to athletes, teams, leagues, … Read more

How Blockchain Technology Is Transforming the Real Estate Industry

Real estate, the largest asset class by value which is expected to grow from $2687.35 billion in 2020 to $3717.03 billion in 2025, is primed to be disrupted by the introduction of blockchain technology. Not only can real estate assets become digitized as tokens on blockchain ledgers, but smart contract developers can deploy on-chain logic … Read more

Hybrid Smart Contracts Explained

Hybrid smart contracts combine code running on the blockchain (on-chain) with data and computation from outside the blockchain (off-chain) provided by Decentralized Oracle Networks. Hybrid smart contracts enable advanced forms of economic and social coordination that have the tamper-proof and immutable properties of blockchains yet leverage secure off-chain oracle services to attain new capabilities, such … Read more
