Ok, I'm tired of all the memes and technical jargon. I'm a semi-brainlet with money and I'm willing to invest in LINK if someone can explain what the hell it actually is and whether or not it has a real future among other cryptos. I've made most of my money off XLM and XRP just by being a coat tail riding trend chaser. So cough it up /biz/, what is LINK and why should I buy it?
fuck off dyor
>>11198574LINK is the codename for this guy named Jason Parser. Sergey hired him for $32 million dollars to solve the oracle problem.
>>11198574who is that
>>11198644my girlfriend. I'll let you bang her if you answer my question
>>11198574Link is like the first brap in your throats after a long day of wageslaving
>>11198574LINK is a token launched by Line corp, that is basically Asia's Whatsapp. You use it in there digital services.
>>11198700who the fuck does these? they're done so well what the fuck
Smart contracts are infallible when coded correctltSmart contracts are not connected to internetLink makes smart contracts talk to the internet

>>11198574>>11198574link is garbage and solves a problem in such an un-unique way it could be implemented into *coin in a day.
>>11198574High value smart contracts (e.g. derivatives) need real world data from off-chain in order to execute. You need software called an oracle to fetch said data, parse it, and feed it to contracts of the blockchain. All oracles now are centralized, thereby negating all the advantages that come a decentralized blockchain. Chainlink is the only decentralized oracle project. The LINK token itself is an ERC20 utility token. Nodes on this decentralized oracle network will be rewarded with it for serving up data to contracts on chain. It will also be staked in nodes for use as collateral/penalty in the case that it feeds a contract bad data./spoonfeed
>>11198574It's a scam and will be worth somewhere between dog shit and a pile of garbage one day. Stay away. Xrp, trx and the others are a much better choice.

In order to due so they are showing the legitimacy of decentralized oracles. Imagine, if smartscontract are to be legally binding if the input data came from decentralized oracles. If this happens Chainlink will be attached to every smartcontract powering the smartcontract economy. $1000 EOY
>>11198916So derivatives, which function damn well atm, need CL to function well ?Ask your school your money back.
>>11198574You're a lazy brainlet, too.Learn what a smart contract is.Learn how trustless systems work.Learn how to get data from trusted sources into trustless systems while maintaining trust.(Hint: you can't)Learn what coding is.Learn what middleware is and what it's currently used for.Learn what ChainLink is.Invest in ChainLink.It's now $350 because you're retarded (see no. 1 above) and took too long.KYS.
>>11199185If they're on a blockchain the derivatives market becomes trustless.
>>11199185to function better and more efficient without all the Layers that the banking world is using to make it happen.
>>11199147The derivatives market is just a portion of what chai link is set out to do.Can you name one currently used middleware solution?Hint: they're everywhere.I was gonna stop writing here but in my annoyance I got excited about sharing knowledge with you guys.Gaming:http://bigworldtech.com/games/Software/Dev:https://www.rightscale.comhttps://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Swift/APIFeatureComparisonhttps://github.com/boto/botoFinance:https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20040401005268/en/IBM-Announces-Agreement-Acquire-Candle-Corporation-Acquisition(Article) https://www.computerweekly.com/feature/Middleware-makes-financial-services-rock-solidIf anyone has questions I'll be on my phone for the next ~20min
>>11199385Friends just got here.I'll leave y'all with this.https://degeldpers.nl/data-aan-de-blockchain-koppelen-met-chainlink/Cheers.
>>11198574>why should I buy it?You shouldn't
>>11198794Damn that was an entire year summed up
