How is there a thread about Chainlink and Base without a single mention of Base’s participation in Chainlink’s SCALE program? This deal means Coinbase (not Chainlink) is subsidizing the operating costs of Chainlink feeds running on the base chain. The SCALE program is effectively how Chainlink is monetizing new chain integrations. Either you pay up (Celo’s SCALE deal was in the millions) or you don’t get the oracles you need for apps like Aave and Compound to deploy on the chain, which they desperately need to get any traction. Chainlink is actively monetizing their services and they’re telling you they are, yet somehow this keeps getting completely overlooked.

They’re literally telling you they’re paying for Chainlink oracles to be deployed on their chain. There’s already seven chains who have joined SCALE, meaning every Chainlink price feed on those networks are running entirely in the green, pure profits, as the chains pony up the money to cover those feed costs.

I don’t see what this has to do with the question if Chainlink feeds are free or being monetized. It’s been communicated that Aave and Compound will deploy on Base and naturally they need Chainlink feeds and Coinbase is willing to pay for that. So this whole thread is completely confused to how Chainlink is actively monetizing their feeds right now.

>> No.55827698

you're likely talking to a bunch of bots/fudders anon, most of what they have written is just going to be slide posts to get you off topic. Most link holders here already knows that Base is a part of the SCALE program and that there are huge fees coming our way which will be mostly pure profit. I have a feeling some anons are realizing that the fees are going to be so big its going to cause fomo soon so they're fudding/sliding. I mean Base just hit 100m volume today. Things are just getting started as Coinbase is about to onboard 98+ millions normies to defi through link. At this point it really only a matter of time before the inevitable perpetual pump begins.

>> No.55827749

Truth. Most real anons have distanced themselves from even mentioning Chainlink IRL because the ETH guys fucking hate the Chainlink community. Personally I am sick of the death threats from the wider crypto community just because I identify as an OG Linkster. I blame the wagies working for Chainlink because they shilled too aggressively on places like Twitter, where all the good posters went.

You only think they're free because you're a literal nobody. Try using the feeds as part of a larger project and find out for yourself.
Chainlink is a services company, and they provide a ton of services to ensure guaranteed uptime. For which you have to pay.

There's a reason banks, enterprises, etc. outsource nearly everything even remotely IT-related. It's a lot more efficient.

>> No.55830718

>It's a lot more efficient.
you'll still need to constantly monitor everything around your contract, else you'll get burned by surprising behavior, as evidenced by the screenshot that was supposed to support that paying is mandatory. so you are already paying an external services company. if that company now also wants chainlink to eat into their profit margins, that's debatable

That is one component of SLAs, yes. SLAs are mentioned several times in the Chainlink whitepaper and on the website, so it seems Chainlink does not fix, nor ever intended to "fix" the need for SLAs.

>Importantly, stakers will have the opportunity to monitor the feed, raise an alert, and get rewarded if they successfully detect in a timely manner that the ETH/USD feed has not met the conditions of the SLA agreement.

You’re absolutely right. I’ve been around awhile and while the Ethereum fud was no where near as deranged and vitriolic, it was quite rampant prior to the run up to $4k. Now that it has held $1k+ for years, that fud is mostly gone. I think it’s safe to say we’re on to something big with Link. If it were nothing their fud wouldn’t be necessary.
