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?

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

OP, it just occurred to me a lot of people on this board will be too young to get this analogy so let me explain
If 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)

>> No.21535312

>>21534663
No it's equal to a JSON scraper. It connects with APIs, that's it. Basically, log in with google or facebook kinda functionality you see added on sites these days.
It adds a lot to the functionality, it's those few lines of JavaScript that fetches your twitter following.
Protip, look into Holochain, that's gonna be more disruptive than anything else.

It 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.

Ethereum = Computer
Chainlink = TCP (arguably SSH?)
