You asked – we listened! Chainlink is now a fully-integrated Tier 3 currency, which means you can deposit and withdraw to external wallets, as well as buy, hold, and send on the platform.
Chainlink (LINK), originally listed as a Tier 4 in 2019, has since skyrocketed to the Top 10 cryptocurrencies by total market value*, while at the same time securing partnership deals with Google Cloud and Oracle.
In addition, today, we’re also excited to announce full blockchain integration for Orchid (OXT) and 0x (ZRX). OXT, LINK, and ZRX are popular representatives of fast-growing sectors in the crypto market, including privacy, blockchain oracles, and decentralized finance (DeFi), respectively.
Internet privacy will be an important battlefield in the next decade. The VPN market, for example, is today dominated by centralized, often obscure solutions. Orchid (OXT) allows users to access a virtual, decentralized private network.
Finally, DeFi has been experiencing a Cambrian-like explosion in 2020. 0x (ZRX) aims to become the protocol of choice for decentralized exchanges, enabling peer-to-peer trading of multiple tokenized assets (e.g., real estate, derivatives, gaming, digital art).
About Orchid – OXT
The Orchid network enables a decentralized virtual private network (VPN), allowing users to buy bandwidth from a global pool of service providers.
To do this, Orchid uses an ERC-20 utility token called OXT, a new VPN protocol for token-incentivized bandwidth proxying, and smart-contracts with algorithmic advertising and payment functions. Orchid’s users connect to bandwidth sellers using a provider directory, and they pay using probabilistic nano payments, so Ethereum transaction fees on packets are acceptably low.
About Chainlink – LINK
The Chainlink network provides reliable tamper-proof inputs and outputs for complex smart contracts on any blockchain. Building a truly valuable smart contract requires the use of multiple inputs to prove contractual performance and multiple outputs to affect external systems and/or send payment to complete the smart contract.
Chainlink provides your smart contract with the inputs and outputs it needs to reach its full potential.
About 0x – ZRX
