This is how I know 99% of crypto is a joke. Hardly anyone seems to understand the underlying tech, and those that do are using that knowledge to scam the rest.

>/biz/ eats it up
The fact you continue to be impressed by what essentially amounts to obfuscation is hilarious.

I'm imagining something like a wolf of wallstreet-esque call center

>> No.54475526

The oracle problem, or the payment in non-volatile currency problem?
Either way, acting as the middleman to onboard users and developers is not only fine, but if they weren't doing that I'd be worried.
Obfuscation seems a bit strong, but I can agree at least that the process itself should be more transparent. As the onchain part of it is fine and obviously transparent already. And even this is arguably transparent since tokens still get used, even if the pay is done irl.
Are you looking at all the branches, or just the master/main one?
If so, securing Chainlink(tm) levels of value is definitely not a 'move fast and break things' sort of operation...
But I'm not going to argue at all with the bloated operation thing.
imo most of their days are numbered now since a lot of those job titles seem to be within range of the terminator sooner or later. Always seemed to me like they just hired a ton people so that the tech people wouldn't have to deal with mundane shit. But boy did they ever go nuts...
I honestly can't imagine how the last few years would have turned out any different had they kept a reasonable sized team. Like I doubt a single defi protocol that uses it cares about whether or not they have an assistant to the people integration specialist, or the senior board cartographer for the decentralized diversity and inclusion oracle council on node equity and representation
although it was nice to get on the map so to speak lmao. better that people know that they don't hire anyone whiter than ari unless they self-identify as non-heteronormative, or adjacent pillow group structure/two-spirit gender instinct crystal|fluid dynamic or lunar phase driven within its own subset gender dimension

The service requires the token, no exceptions.

it mandates the use of a token. this token is just shoehorned into the process for funding, it could be any token, see the BNB version for example

Not really, a proprietary token is part of the system's security.
Exact same reasoning as with BTC.

>> No.54477472

>Not really, a proprietary token is part of the system's security.
citation needed. just look at the BNB version, they ripped out the superflous token and replaced it with the obvious choice, the native coin of the chain, to no ill effect. it's really great to have this counterexample now, it clears up the discussion a lot

>> No.54477604

>citation needed
You don't know how bitcoin works?

>the obvious choice, the native coin of the chain
Chainlink is its own network of nodes that each serve a multitude of chains.
Not only would using native chain coins undermine security, but it would also be a clusterfuck for nodes to handle payments.

>> No.54477651

>You don't know how bitcoin works?
it uses the native coin of the chain, which works great
>it would also be a clusterfuck for nodes to handle payments
did you know that link is copy pasted to every chain? there is no "single token that is used everywhere". it is precisely the clusterfuck you describe, only labeled the same everywhere to give it the appearance of sanity

Just like Chainlink does.

You're contradicting yourself.

>> No.54477908

>Just like Chainlink does.
the same way that there are some weirdos refusing to use dollars in favor of rocks, yes. rocks are the native currency of their collective delusion, so it's the same
if you have link on chain x and want to pay on chain y, you can't. the contract is copy pasted, but those tokens are related in the same way that there is a shitcoin labeled "dog" on every chain. you seem to be pretty new to all of this, maybe you shouldn't invest your allowance into something you don't understand?

>> No.54477980

>the same way that there are some weirdos refusing to use dollars in favor of rocks, yes
Having a network-native token brings economic (dis)incentives that help keep network participants honest.
It's the exact same principle for Link as it is for BTC.

>those tokens are related in the same way that there is a shitcoin labeled "dog" on every chain
Well no because every single Link "on other chains" is actually a Link token.
