dude, its not contracts with your fucking janitor. You can sign a contract today with a bank, and they will all be processed manually, even shitty payments have to be manually processed by operators, they are impossible to control both from your side and their lack of auditing can fuck you in the ass, and they are extremely vulbenrable, security-wise. something like a smart contract will change all that
complex tasks that today are still manual (or require some kind of manual input), very hard to audit and vulnerable (which is the entire world of banking, insurances, etc) will all tend to migrate to smart contracts, which allow for an incredible diversification of tasks, all within our control.

>> No.8435461

You're an idiot...contract is just a random nomenclature labeled for the mechanism in which you are inquiring about.

A "smart contract" is a mechanism designed to send one function of data as an input that will execute another function of data as an output if and only if the conditions are met by the initiating input function.

So, we have various variables implemented into an input function that will only execute a triggering response (output function) given the variables all match up.

So, for instance...If I have I buy 20 eggs and 1 salad that weighs less than 6 lbs. I will be rewarded with a coupon from Amazon for 10% off my next carton of milk I purchase at wholefoods.

Okay, so if the conditons are right, and I do infact have 20 eggs and one salad that I bring to the weight sensor/scanner at the wholefoods self automated store. I will automactically receive a coupoun for 10% off my next carton of milk I purchase with them...

Done, it's fucking amazing, self-automated, and yes...tamperproof because it's all going to be utilized on the blockchain....

So to answer your question brainlet...Should you dump every last penny you own into chainlink??

Uhhh, yeah you fucking idiot...because by 2020 this will be a reality for everyone, and everywhere you go

>The “if….” component of the smart contract relies on data from outside of the blockchain provided by an “oracle” – which could be a database or a person – providing confirmation that the precondition has been fulfilled. A smart contract is reactive, and only as smart
as the self-executing code on which it is based and the factual accuracy of the data input by the oracle. Where data is automatically obtained and input from
a reliable source, its accuracy may be relied upon. For example a smart insurance contract might have as its oracle a database of meteorological statistics. If the database records a storm or drought (as defined
in the insurance contract) occurring, then insurance pay-outs are automatically triggered. Where the oracle is a person inputting data manually there is obviously a
risk of human error. In the event of error in the coding, the result may be wrong regardless of the accuracy of the oracle.


>> No.8435521

Oh, and the eggs and salad would need to weigh less than 6 lbs....another variable I forgot to mention...

See, even my human error would have screwed up the contract...thankfully once the code is written and looked at carefully before being submitted...it will never be able to make an error.

>> No.8435544

Imagine if a contract could walk and talk and can interface with anything or anyone including peoples brains, and can fix any problem automatically and no lawyers are involved and you don’t even have to do anything the smart contract does everything for you. Something like that.

>> No.8435570

Guys, seriously...the only way for chainlink to fail are two ways...possibly three...
Scenario 1: Governments combined gather around for fear of losing control of the general public and the flow of money so they outlaw all cryptocurrencies and only utilize blockchain for keeping records of things. So bitcoin falls to basically nothing, and that's it...the end of cryptocurrencies as we know it.
A very seriously unlikely scenario...

Scenario 2: Sergey doesn't know how to code all of this correctly and make it truly compatible with the ethereum algorithm, translating real-world api's into erc20 algorithms ...and that's it the project ends up becoming a total flop

Scenario 3: Sergey dies before main net gets released...lol

The problem is that you still have to convert legal language or contractual requirements into code, and that can be fraught with either error or trickery.

This is a terrible example. No insurance company will blindly pay out a policy based purely in a set of meteorological data. At most they might use that as one of the data points they use to evaluate the claim, so it can help act as a way to filter out certain claims based on a set of very black and white conditions.

Sure man...What about a health insurance company then.

Let's say you want to sign up for blue shield health insurance. Now, you have to give them a bunch of documentation (real world data) so that the company can accurately assess what payment plan to put you on. This is a very time consuming job, and requires the health insurance company to hire a clerk who compiles all this data, stores it, and gives it to management to go over and review in order for them to gauge what payment plan best fits that individual or individual's family who is inquiring about health insurance.

A lot of things matter when it comes to health insurance, or other insurances in general.. Age, income, predisposition to certain illnesses, current illnesses, location, etc...

So once all of these data points are compiled into one document for management to review. They will then give an appropriate payment plan.

So, we could then use smart contracts to completely cut out the jobs of management, the clerk who takes all the data and stores it in the centralized system of computers they have.

A smart contract will be able to assess all of this data at once and spit out a payment plan almost instantaneously. And all of this is tamper proof because it's a decentralized oracle utilized on the blockchain... But how do we translate all this real world data into an ethereum based algorithm? CHAINLINK!!!!

This is going to save billions of dollars globally...Now do you see how important this could be for businesses?

>> No.8436296

Thanks for the effort.

Does this mean all the patient’s health data is accessible via a blockchain? How do you secure that?

How does the patient s data get into the system? You still neee to verify if it’s correct.

This may automate some clerical, accounting or low level tech jobs, but I’m not sure how smart contracts are any more than glorified.ini or batch files, just filtering data and presenting options based on a set of criteria. I’m not really convinced by that use case and I think it could easily be done today with the same amount of effort without smart contracts. You still have to set up this whole new automated system in either case.

you do realize even the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance is 100% focused on developing applications for permissioned versions of ethereum like quorum right? The public version benefits because it's all open source but no serious company has ever demonstrated any interest in building on the public blockchain aside from the one meme example of AXA and Fizzy. No company that cares about data privacy to the point where they use a permissioned blockchain, like hyperledger, will ever use a public oracle network that then makes all their contracts public. They just don't care about that degree of decentralization or being ideologically pure.

Chainlink will live or die based on whether a smattering of meme crypto token projects that are still 90% just white papers can displace the legacy financial and insurance worlds. I'll give you a hint, they can't.

Doubt it will be revolutionary. It could be months before the main net is turned on on even the ethereum testnet. They haven't even started writing the contracts and it's just way too expensive to use. Imagine paying for gas for 100+ nodes each time you want to use the network.

Cheaper just to pay 1c to oraclize imo, the risks far outweigh the expensive piece of shit sergey has created. Even if 10% of your contracts get fucked by a centralized oracle it's still cheaper than chainlink.

Usually, communicating the same information in two different ways greatly aids in comprehension, yes.

Also, like I said legalese will likely take on a completely different form in the future specifically because of smart contracts.
As it stands, legalese is also "if X then Y", just like smart contract code but with grandiose, archaic, intransparent wording.

Smart contracts would basically be "if X then Y" with a brief introduction and essential notes.

If you've ever bought a house, you'll know that the notary or whatever will go over the essentials, boiling it all down to "if X then Y".

>> No.8437987

I understand where you’re coming from as far as the need and desire to simplify contract language. But the legalese in contracts is there for a reason, terms are strictly defined within the contract because the contract writer requires them.

A smart contract is not as transparent to the average Norman as people make them out to be. You would need to audit the coded conditions, and even make sure you know what the function calls are actually doing, in order to be sure that the code properly reflects the stated terms. That’s how they can be used by nefarious types to trick people into bad contracts.

A historical trend the past 70 years or so has been an escalation in the deployment of pragmatically obtuse language. See: Brandt, Deborah. “Sponsors of Literacy.” College Composition and Communication 49.2 (1998): 165–185. Note the story of a blue-collar guy who could competently represent unions until corporate attorneys endeavored to make the process incomprehensible.

Smartcontracts have the ability to perform many of the functions of lawyers without the necessity for complex and evolving literacies. They will not make lawyers obsolete, but might render many of their inherently exclusionary or exploitative practices superfluous.

This is one of the great possibilities that Chainlink represents. The little guy will no longer get boned by corporations or governments simply because he doesn't have access to the right education. I remember all those ads during the election talking about how Trump never paid for services rendered and got away with it because craftsmen and small businesses couldn't afford years of litigation -- that simply wouldn't happen with smartcontracts.

Wrong. Smart contracts that auto trigger need clear well defined data-driven events to auto-execute. If a craftsman does work for Evil Trump, the smart contract isn't going to know the work was completed, or even completed to satisfaction. Also, since it is craft work, there needs to be a human review of the work to make sure it was done to satisfaction. This kind of agreement doesn't seem well suited to a smart contract, since the triggering events are somewhat fuzzy (as opposed to a simple contract condition like "plane took off 2 hours late, pay the insurance").

Evil Trump can still say he didn't really like the job Jose did, and delay payment, the same situation as allegedly happened before.

I listened to that talk. It's pretty vague. They all talk about how they hope to have much better foolproof easy to read and understand templates etc. but these are fantasy scenarios till someone delivers. Also, smart contracts are somewhat reliant on the whole world changing to fit their data driven nature. E.g. every possible input needs to be a clear value to enable auto triggering.

So far the example that get's used a lot is the Flight Delay insurance example (which is shit, most people are offered travel cancellation insurance, not this bizarre flight delay insurance which I've never seen, but they chose that because it is a simple data driven event policy, the other Flight Cancellation one doesn't work well as an auto triggered policy because it's too fuzzy.)

Salary and wage workers in most companies are auto paid via direct deposit, or checks. Smaller companies may not automate it, perhaps because their money flow is too tight, but these same companies who cannot automate it now aren't going to suddenly adopt a blockchain and oracle system or payment either.

Payment for services also requires acceptance of services rendered before payment is made. You can't automate that reporting in most cases, it often requires human review and approval.

pretty simple, actually.

Businesses do PoCs all the time for every product. A very small number of them get pushed to production. I am a software developer. I throw away a lot of prototypes. Every Enterprise does. Most code written doesn't see the light of day because it's prototype PoC trash.

Pretty sure if swift used the PoC, and wanted to push it to production, they would have a bunch of swift engineers committing code to GitHub so they can ensure ChainLink meets the requirements of swift. Instead, swift said "wow smart contracts are great, as judging by our poc. Still need a lot of work though, and there are scalability issues ready to be solved."

You think if they were planning on using it, they would mention it so member banks can get ready to implement. And don't give me that secret NDA conspiracy crap. It's open source code, swift isn't contributing because they aren't using it. You are deluded if you think otherwise.

anon this shit happens all the time. we had an instance where our contractor had an inspector on site who signed off on all the hours and work and they still wanted to say we didn't do work to their satisfaction despite their inspectors never making any such comments during the work. This eliminates all of that bullshit as long as you can quantify the work. Any trouble is getting clients to pay on time.
