What is Chainlink? Guide to The Decentralized Oracle Network128

Launched by the San Francisco fintech company SmartContract in June 2017, Chainlink is described by its developers as a secure blockchain middleware that intends to connect smart contracts across blockchains by allowing smart contracts to access key off-chain resources such as data feeds, web APIs, and traditional bank account payments.

The Chainlink developers believes that although smart contracts may revolutionize many industries by replacing the need for traditional legal agreements, the underlying consensus protocols related to blockchain technology results in smart contracts being unable to effectively communicate with external systems.
