I need LINK fudders to pick this apart. Seems legit. If this is true. $1000 will be on the low end.

from what im reading and what I know, there is no other token that offers insurance to smartcontract value like LINK. Will LINK token price directly be related to the smartcontract economy marketcap? this seems crazy. We are talking 100s of billions in market just in LINK alone...in an early market. That would make its value bigger then Bitcoin.

Fudders are welcome here. Pick it apart so I don't go all in.

My understanding is that chainlink ensures decentralized access to APIs and provides collateral to ensure that the data feed is correct. But why is useful when the Data API could be wrong itself? The LINK node would be providing true information regarding the data API, but it would still be wrong.
Or do I not understand correctly?

from what i know.

Gold Price

the gold market is 24 hours taking place in multiple locations around the world. There is not just 1 API source for this data. there are many sources, many markets.

A decentralized oracle network (chainlink) eliminates the risk of 1 faulty API source. It eliminates the need for people to manually check the input or output of smartcontract data since the data is decentralized and works peer to peer in some way.

With this tech chainlink network enables smartcontracts to work like robots, contractual automation without oversight. true trustless execution.... wow, a lot of people will be jobless cause of something like this.

>> No.13404547

Right, but in the event that an API fails, is the node responsible if it correctly reports the information from the faulty API? And in the case of limited APIs what happens? If there were, say, 10 APIs and 2 failed, would the 'true' information be decided as the majority? If that's the case does each contract need to rely, and therefore pay, for more than one nodes services?

To further exapnd on this.

Sports betting (another huge market for smartcontracts)

There is one game BUT many APIs reporting data as the game goes. There is not just one source for this data.

Chainlink oracle network will tapped in to all the APIs reporting on this one game aggregating data. This ensures that one faulty API will not effect the smartcontract outcome. The data can be trusted, it can be relied on to never be down and always tell the truth.

Do we have this correct?

>> No.13404593

Thats a little over my head. I haven't looked deep into that yet. but thas why i started this thread.

if I had to guess and from what I know, the node is not responsible for delivering exact API data even if the API is faulty. I believe the node operator will be penalized if there is intent to deliver conflicting data from an API to try and influence the network.

That is my best guess. But im gonna ask the admin in the telegram to get clarity.

anyone else want to chime in

>> No.13404597

No. The node would check all 10 and write off the bad apis before submitting. 1 node for a job in most cases that does all this work for your contract.

>> No.13404654

Thank you anon, so a node operator only loses their collateral in the event that the majority of Data APIs send faulty data? And I'm assuming that the node operator charges some fee that would correlate with their collateral offered and the inherit risk with their chosen data APIs?

>> No.13404688

Based trips. Problem is Link is basically like postage stamps. You can transfer a gold bar to your mum through the postal system by adding a £4 stamp to it. But the stamp is only worth £4. Link is the stamp, not the gold bar. That’s Bitcoin.

>> No.13404689

Do you code solidity?
If so, you ever create a contract on remix requiring an oracle?

The problem you're describing is a reason why chainlink exists. When you create a contract requiring off-chain data, for example a betting contract dependent on a coin flip, your main choice of an oracle would be oraclize. The function would look something like:
Function coinflip() payable {
oraclizeID = oraclizequery("wolframalpha","random number between 0 and 1")

From this function, you can infer that the execution of your betting contract is dependent on the outcome that oraclize query's from a web page. That means that your stream of income 100% relies on up time of oraclize and up time of the webpage "wolframalpha' in this example. If instead you decide to decentralize your oracles, then the contract can pull "random number between 0 and 1" from any oracles willing to provide that data. In this example, using multiple nodes is unnecessary but if you really wanted to, you could receive an output from multiple nodes and have the network aggregate a "random" response for you, again it would be unnecessary. In this case, you decentralize your oracles to maximize the up time of your revenue stream.

>If there were, say, 10 APIs and 2 failed, would the 'true' information be decided as the majority?
If you have 10 different nodes pulling data from 10 different API's and 2 of those nodes were pulling data from 2 faulty API's then the network would flag those responses as outliers and aggregate a response from the majority. There is no finding "truth" as that would require some form of advanced AI.

>does each contract need to rely, and therefore pay, for more than one nodes services?
The more nodes you chose the more expensive it is to execute your contract. This is under the assumption that more nodes= more security. You essentially pay for the amount of security you want on your contract.

It is not at all set in stone how much collateral is required, everything will be determined by the contract creators.

>> No.13405201


Great fud HOWEVER This has been addressed above.

The problem with your scenario is that

1. your single source of API data can go down. it can be faulty. if this is to happen it would automatically make the smartcontract null and void. and really, the whole purpose of decentralization is to create a system that can be automated.

A chainlink decentralized network is a worker that is
1. always on time
2. always comes to work
3. never gets old
4. never gets sick
5. always tells the truth.

>> No.13405237

No they would lose their penalty if they didn't report what was judged to be consensus by the apis selected. You are one level out. Its the oracles that are in question here.

It won't be profitable because you don't need the service or even much less to attach a token. Even if they do somehow manage to build it, the token itself won't act liquid enough to have such a network facilitate it as a form of payment. It is just layers and layers of unnecessary redundancy.

>> No.13405315


>> No.13405337

There needs to be a demand for tokens that exceeds supply at x price in order for price to increase. People won't buy up tokens just because the network supposedly 'needs' a certain amount of value to handle certain contracts. People would only use the network for certain contracts when it's certain that there is enough value and demand contained in the network to maintain the necessary token price.
In other words, the Link network has to serve consistent amounts of inelastic demand (that is, demand based on unavoidable business costs) in order to support a baseline token price upon which contracts of arbitrary value can be safely staked.

This is the pre mainnet era. The post mainnet era will be interesting since the team has mentioned that they will go to mainnet if there are users ready to use.

The tokenomics are very interesting as well. You can either run your own node or stake/"lend" your LINK to a pool where the node will use your LINK to get bigger contracts and thus more profit and then give the profit minus fee back to you(or you restake it). Now this means you'll earn passive ROI while your LINK stack is the same/growing. This will make LINK holders unlikely to sell all their stacks since they can just sell some of their staking rewards. Now this is where stuff gets really interesting. If nobody is selling their whole stacks, but the demand for offchain data is growing and more people want to run nodes to get staking rewards, then the price will start to climb high and I mean really high until the staking ROI is lower than traditional stock funds ROI. Also with Bitcoin and Ethereum, you had to sell to get profits since you couldn't stake them. With LINK that's not the case. You can keep your main stack and sell your staking rewards or just let your LINK stack grow.

>but anon crypto is risky, just in case I'm going to sell 50% of my stack at $100

Why is crypto risky? Because it's all speculative. The moment Chainlink is up and smartcontracts are regularly paying for off-chain data, it becomes less risky.

So basically the LINK token value is correlated to the Smartcontract economy.

the larger the smartcontract economy the higher the LINK token price

The higher the LINK token price the more stable the network for the smartcontract economy will be.

Insurance smart contracts will never happen.

We can all agree that the entire insurance industry works by only paying out on a portion of their policies (as determined by the actuaries) but collecting premiums from all of them. Well, what happens when every single policy has to have the entire amount held in escrow until the policy is over? By defnition, that would bankrupt the company and tie up all of their cash flow. If the money is not held in escrow, then it can't properly be called a smartcontract, as the payout would not be guaranteed.

I'm actually more qualified to talk about this than most anons.I'm employed with a cyber-techno machinations company, I do a lot of security analyst programming type work. Open source, decentralized, APIs, partnerships, you name it. We'd be one of the first companies in line for something like Chainlink, if the decentralized smart contract space had more value over traditional data exchanges. There's a catch though, an underlying flaw more deeply embedded in the bedrock of LINK than the very code itself. The flaw is with the concept, and it's this: Companies won't actually go through the hassle of trusting their data API's through crypto.

Now I can already hear your keyboards going frantic, but hear me out. /biz/ hates banks, and traditional data providers. But actual companies, businesses, and investors do not. There's an old saying you might have heard of: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!". The idea that any of our bosses would give us the go ahead if we approached them to put our companies valuable data in a smart contract on a cryptocurrency called Chainlink, that they've never heard of, we'd be laughed out at best and fired on the spot at worst. We already have API data buyers and providers we trust.

'But Chainlink is trustless!' I hear you cry, but is that really a good thing? Just listen to the sound of it. Businesses don't want to spend millions of dollars on something that is trustLESS, they want something trustFUL. 'But the reputation system!', doesn't that defeat the whole point of your coin? If companies only trust nodes with high reputation, what's the difference between trusting banks and data providers that already have reputation, but in real life not on a computer screen.

The fact is, LINK is going to share the same fate as ETH will. A lot of 'real world application' hype, with a lot of 'crypto world application' reality. Only, this billion supply coin isn't going to come close to the $1k that Etherum hit. Happy gambling though anons.

It is the prime noobie trap on this board and is meant to usurp capital from unknowing naive fomo'ers.
