Staking is the only value proposition for LINK. 4 billion MC on the speculation that one day you will be able to stake your LINK.

Why hasn't staking been implemented in 3 years? Shouldn't this be the top priority when it's the only thing that would give LINK any value?

Why haven't we seen any design docs or blog posts about how staking should be implemented in such a context, where you are aggregating data points? Why hasn't the team even hinted at how such a thing should be engineered?

You don't find this suspicious?

Not until enterprise adoption fren.

>> No.24705699

>Why would they need it?
The only thing that currently secures the network is the fact the node operators are selected by the Chainlink team and thus must report to the Chainlink team. If the network were to actually be decentralized, then you would need security features in place like staking, as outlined in the whitepaper.

Why would enterprise adoption precede any actual security measures being implemented?

Staking isn't magic, it only makes sense when LINK is actually widespread used.

Because it will just be the thing that dominates and that everyone's using. Much like VHS back in the days. Although for different reasons.

>> No.24706424

This is pretty delusional, fren. Nothing just "dominates" in the crypto space if it isn't provably secure which is generally some measure of decentralization/number of central points of failure. Imagine the entire crypto space getting data inputs from one company ...

Anon I fully understand the importance of decentralized oracles.

>> No.24706555

The crypto space will be everyone's place in time. And Link will be the glue that makes it all stick and work together. ETH made it possible.
A transaction might cost an additional link fee of 0.000000000000007 link for businesses... now imagine owning hundreds of thousands of these tokens when that happens. And happen, it will someday.

>> No.24706563

Multiple oracles independently providing data. When one of the oracles provides outlier data it is not recognized. This could also help with security right?

>> No.24706600


Terrible FUD.

>> No.24706672

What’s to prevent them from colluding and what ensures an outlier is a misbehaving node? An outlier could also be a piece of data that’s of higher quality than the rest.

Lads, the first time I had sex with a trans girl, it was just like similar experiences with other girls. And it was really hot. And I know some of the straight lads might be like, "Well, y'know I find trans women hot and like trans rights and all that, but if she's got a penis, then I don't really know how I feel about that," and that's the commodity fetishism of dick. The lads are thinking about the dick, but they're not really thinking about where it comes from or what it does. So as an alternative. I'm pleased to present my fellow lads with what I call the Wittgensteinian theory of dick. I've had sex with men and with women, including trans women, and I can tell you from experience that the meaning of dick is how it's used. How a trans woman's dick feels, how it behaves, how they like to be touched, taste, and yes, The Mouthfeel is totally different than guy dick. I'm not the first person to point this out on YouTube, but I'm happy to independently confirm that it is in fact true, and if you don't believe me, I will also literally cite an academic source. It's a book by Mira Bellweather called "Fucking Trans Women." It's also a how-to guide with diagrams. Sometimes I'll suck a guy's dick in a gay way! Sometimes I'll suck a girl's dick in a straight way!

The network will be increasingly decentralized. They’ve just announced that Keep3r nodes can transition to link nodes with a good enough reputation. There is a second white paper coming. I will be concerned if it doesn’t get into staking mechanisms. You really don’t think Ari can pull it off?

>> No.24707620

>You really don’t think Ari can pull it off?
Ari is a cryptographer. His research isn't in consensus algorithms or statistics, which is what you would need to design a consensus algorithm and thus a staking mechanism for nodes handling nondiscrete data.

Locking up BET tokens while getting BTC or Eth on crypto casino - https://2no.co/2gZxw5 - does actually makes sense, especially when you're going to sell back with a much higher value of BET tokens. Basic maths.

This falls into the same pitfalls as most data "dashboards". A bunch of useless numbers to impress midwits.

How do you decide based on this information which are the best nodes? Most importantly, which oracles, based on this information, produce the *most accurate* prices? It's a rhetorical questions, since none of the information on reputation.link would answer this.

You mean Benjamin? What would he know about consensus algorithms and statistics? Two areas at minimum in which you'd have to have expert knowledge in order to develop a consensus algorithm (and thus staking) for nondiscrete data.

>Staking is the only value proposition for LINK.
No, the value is derived from people believing the price of a link token will be worth more in the future. Same as non-dividend stocks.

I already responded to this here:

Other than response ratio, none of these metrics are particularly useful. More importantly, none of these metrics tell you how *accurate* a node is. Which one reports the most accurate prices? How would you even measure such a thing?

Fully entrusted

>> No.24710022

Just because someone has expertise in one area doesn't mean they have expertise in another. Anyone who has worked in technical research knows this. I had a math professor in combinatorics who admittedly had trouble with basic concepts in statistics.

How does creating wrapped BTC translate into coming up with an implementation of a novel consensus and staking algorithm for an oracle network? Oracle networks have to deal with nondiscrete data so at the very least the development of such an algorithm would require statistical knowledge and experience with designing consensus algorithms.

>put up stake against a very clearly laid out set of conditions that relates to data quality
Again, more vagueness. How would you lay out conditions for data quality? Would this require some reference source? Would this require discarding data furthest from the mean (which doesn't necessarily imply it's faulty)?

Lol. Wtf are you talking about? The whole value prop for LINK is that node operators will stake LINK and the amount of staked LINK has to be proportional to the value of the smart contracts relying on that node.
