dumb fuck front end engineer here, let’s say ethereum = the OG Internet/ARPANET, is it safe to say LINK is the equivalent of HTML+CSS+ECMAScript 6 but better in every way?
>>21534663noone is a DAPP platform the other is a DAPP
>>21534663More like https
>>21534663Furniture salesman here, yes
>>21534663eth - BUS link - HTTPS
>>21534663imagine admitting you're a front end eng on biz.
>>21534663Ethereum: The InternetChainlink: An API that's somehow valued at 13% of the Internet's total value
>>21534825Don't let them know how cheap ETH is anon.
>>21534663More like PHP and https in one from my understanding.
>>21534825Unironically these days Internet practically equals to the World Wide Web
No you kinda got this backwards, to put it in really simple terms so other anons can understand my post as well:If we assume that Ethereum to smart contracts and transactions is like the internet to websites and individual data requests, then Chainlink is the equivalent of blacked.com
>>21534896That actually also makes sense, thanks anon.
>>21534663ETH = PHPLINK = Node js
>>21534663It's the htpps equivalent cause it secures the data
>>21534980Imagine thinking anyone is going to read that useless word salad
>>21534663Immagine if you could invest in http how much money you'd be making.. do the mathLink is the same
>>21534663>>21534730>>21534949>>21534971>>21535041Jesus, it's true /biz/ is full of technical illiterates.
>>21534971OP, it just occurred to me a lot of people on this board will be too young to get this analogy so let me explainIf you look at the oldest websites before JS they were just documents with formatting. JS was all the rage when it came out but it was basically only good for adding little animations another superficially dynamic stuff to your webpages for a long time.XMR was basically introduced to make apps like Gmail work and it was the first thing that made JS actually useful. (also just so happens "useful" = "able to reliably transmit real-time data in a reliable way" in both cases)
>>21535213And now XMR has already been depreciated by fetch. What does that tell you?
>>21534663Yeah dude, chainlink is CSS. What the fuck?
>>21534663No one will use a Protocol which is not free, doesn't scale and doesn't provide privacy. Smart people will make money right now from the idiots that think Eth and Link will be the next internet.
>>21534663Roof repairman here, yes
this thread is a proof that /biz/ has a collective single digit of IQ
>>21534663chainlink is a json parser valued at 6 billion, shorted yesterday, I’m going to be so fucking rich
>>21534825Imagine paying $50 to browse a webpage
>>21534663BTC = tcp/ipETH = netscape navigatorLINK = bonzi buddy
>>21534663>your wasting company resources posting here>Securityyyyyyy
>>21534980>debt of minimum imbued onto the network creates value potentialDo people really believe this? There are infinite examples of energy usage without a corresponding “imbued value” of any kind.
>>21534825>>21534845ETH bulls have revealed themselves. Don’t let them know boys. This is our time.
>>21534663erc-10 token soon, this will dump to 0
this is basically what chainlink is:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uq5XmNS1M-g
btc = <table>eth = float: rightlink = display: flex
>>21535312I hate reddit too, but this is cruel
>>21534663Fellow dev here, it is more like Angular or Vue.js where people can build applications using these frameworks to save time and money
>>21535349It tells me you're either a zoomer or misunderstood my analogy.fetch is just a different browser API that lets you do the same thing as XHR with promises.Before XHR there wasn't an async BOM accessor to external APIs, you just had to navigate webpages synchronously.
>>21535213so all in XMR?
>>21535908only real OGs will remember
>>21534663From what I get itEthereum = Coca-ColaChainlink = Big MacYes you don't need one but god damn what a good combo it is if you have both
>>21534663Let me summarize it differently:Protocols(infrastructure), smart contracts(processing) and oracles(data)
Really, I don't get how people in tech use weird analogies like that...Ethereum = ComputerChainlink = TCP (arguably SSH?)Other analogies just don't work
>>21534663>let’s say ethereum = the OG Internet/ARPANET
Will there be suicide tent for people who lost their entire fortunes in the ChainGang? Also in 2021 will 5,000 Link enough or me to buy a new scooter?
>>21535662I do... and stop ignoring all the rest of the properties of bitcoin
>>21534663Eth is JS, Chainlink is the Fetch API
