What is LINK?

Chainlink is an Ethereum-based cryptocurrency project aiming to standardize how blockchains get access to outside information and communicate across chains. The project consists of nodes called oracles that provide mission-critical information to hundreds of blockchain projects and DeFi protocols. The most prolific example is crypto asset prices.

Chainlink aggregates and comes up with an average price for supported assets and shares this information with customers that need it. While it may seem simple, this information protects customers from flash crashes and other price anomalies that could cause lending and short positions to be incorrectly liquidated.

One of the most compelling use cases for holding Chainlink tokens is the upcoming implementation of Chainlink staking, which allows Chainlink holders to earn staking rewards like interest income. The more Chainlink you hold, the more staking rewards you earn. Before staking goes live, the OKX Earn platform will allow Chainlink holders to earn a regular return immediately.

As Chainlink has so many high-profile partnerships and customers, many proponents of the project strongly believe that Chainlink will significantly appreciate in price in the future. If this happens, it could be wise to consider buying Chainlink regularly through means such as dollar-cost averaging.

As Chainlink tokens are not a currency, there are not many businesses or stores that accept it as a direct form of payment. However, Chainlink is widely supported at all major exchanges and DeFi platforms.

Chainlink oracles can provide almost any information stream to blockchains like Ethereum, Solana and even Cardano, among others. Additionally, Chainlink can provide customers with true, verifiable random number generation, which is critical for crypto gaming and gambling projects.

Chainlink started from an initial coin offering, or ICO, held in 2017. The project currently has hundreds of customers and partners, including big names like Google, Visa, SWIFT, the New York Stock Exchange, and PayPal. The project also boasts an impressive list of partners and customers in the crypto world, including major DeFi projects and exchanges including Aave, Compound, Paxos and more. These customers have to pay in Chainlink tokens, which subsequently creates a steady stream of demand on the market for Chainlink tokens.

Financial firm Grayscale Investments launched its Chainlink Investment Trust, which will allow individuals and institutions to buy into Chainlink the same way they do with stocks and ETFs.

Another potential growth area is the metaverse and crypto-powered gaming. The Chainlink project is deeply invested in this growing industry and will offer interoperability between different smart contract cryptocurrency platforms like Polygon, Solana, Avalanche and more. This could allow metaverse NFTs to move across different blockchains, among other features.
