Connect your smart contract to real world data

Connect your smart contract to to real world data

Smart contracts are inherently disconnected

Blockchains are highly secure and reliable networks for value exchange but lack the functionality to natively fetch external data or send data to off-chain systems in a manner that retains end-to-end tamper-resistance.

Chainlink connects smart contracts to the real world

Through the use of secure oracles, Chainlink extends the functionality of blockchains by connecting smart contracts to real-world data, events, payments, and off-chain computation in a highly tamper-resistant and reliable manner.

Case studies

Secure oracle networks powering off-chain data and services for any smart contract

End-to-end decentralization

Use decentralized oracle networks made up of independent and Sybil-resistant nodes for high availability and manipulation resistance.

Provably secure nodes

Provide cryptographic proof of the oracle networks' overall integrity as every piece of data is digitally signed by nodes and stored on-chain.

High-quality data

Access any password-protected or authenticated API data source, redundantly validated by multiple nodes to prevent any single points of failure.

Crypto-economic security

Leverage provably secure nodes that are economically incentivized to deliver accurate results on-chain.

Defense in depth

Apply multiple layers of security such as cryptographic signatures, trusted execution environments, zero-knowledge proofs, and more.

Open-source community

Improve network security and accelerate development through ongoing contributions from node operators, developers, researchers, security auditors, and more.

Blockchain agnostic

Connect to all leading public and private blockchain environments from a single framework, providing a universal abstraction level for cross-network connectivity.

Off-chain computation

Combine on-chain infrastructure with cost-efficient and reliable off-chain computation to create feature-rich decentralized applications in the form of hybrid smart contracts.

The most trusted oracle network in DeFi

Chainlink Price Feeds provide critical financial market data required to issue, settle, and secure a wide array of DeFi applications

The Chainlink Network supports a multitude of price and data feeds live in production, securing tens of billions in value for many leading DeFi applications, CeFi companies, and various other financial institutions.

A leading source of on-chain randomness

Chainlink VRF generates reliable randomness used to mint NFTs, distribute random rewards, and power unpredictable gameplay scenarios

Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF) provides numerous blockchain games with a cryptographically secure and provably fair source of on-chain randomness (RNG), giving users a strong guarantee of application impartiality.

Decentralized and reliable automation solution

Chainlink Keepers enable smart contract developers to outsource the triggering of smart contract functions to a decentralized network of nodes.

The Chainlink Keepers network monitors smart contracts and performs off-chain computations to determine when on-chain functions need to be called, providing a decentralized transaction automation service.

Connect your smart contract to real-world data and events

Chainlink decentralized oracle networks allow developers to connect their smart contracts to any off-chain data resource or computation

Chainlink’s ability to connect with any API and perform any off-chain computation opens up a wide variety of use cases, such as Arbol using Chainlink for weather data to create weather risk products and Theta Network leveraging Chainlink for viewership data to fight ad fraud for online content.
