Brief Intro

Founded in 2017, Chainlink was launched by the San Francisco-based tech company, Smart Contract. Its co-founders are Sergey Nazarov (CEO) and Steve Ellis (CTO). LINK is Chainlink’s native cryptocurrency. What makes Chainlink unique is that it bridges the gap between on-chain and off-chain data, effectively allowing blockchains to interact with external data sources, payment methods, and more. With Chainlink, blockchains can now tap into data points that do not exist in the blockchain. This is important because blockchains typically work in silos. As a result, Chainlink will help amplify the decentralized finance ecosystem. If you’re looking to buy LINK in Canada, consider buying from Netcoins. With 0% funding fees, free cash withdrawals and live customer support seven days a week, you’ll find it a breeze to buy LINK.

More About Chainlink
While you can use bitcoin to buy goods and services or use ether to execute smart contracts and pay miners for maintaining the Ethereum network; Chainlink tokens are simply used to pay “node operators” in the Chainlink network. These node operators connect to the Ethereum network and collect user-requested data that lives off-chain. On top of that, they also ensure that the data is accurate and relevant. For this work, the nodes are rewarded LINK tokens, Chainlink’s native cryptocurrency.

LINK is an ERC-20 token, which means it’s compatible with other cryptocurrencies and smart contracts that also live on the Ethereum blockchain. Like we mentioned earlier, LINK is used to incentivize Chainlink node operators rather than being used for everyday purchases, like bitcoin or for executing smart contracts, like ether. Because it’s an ERC-20 token, you can’t mine LINK (like you can with bitcoin, or litecoin). Instead, the Chainlink team decides which node operators can validate information, making it a centralized token (unlike Bitcoin which is decentralized because it’s not owned or managed by any one party).

Chainlink solves one of the biggest problems that blockchains are experiencing – the inability of smart contracts to tap into information and data sources that live outside of the blockchain (like weather type, stock prices, etc). To those not well-versed in smart contracts, they are similar to regular contracts in that the terms of agreements between buyers and sellers (or any two parties) are outlined. However, in smart contracts, these terms are written into code. So once the terms are met, the agreement self-executes and transactions are carried out. In this way, intermediary parties are not needed.

You can buy LINK tokens from crypto trading platforms, like Netcoins, and leave your LINK inside the platform. However, there are much safer options to storing your LINK tokens as leaving them in exchanges can expose them to certain risks like hacking and theft. The safest option to keeping your LINK tokens secure is to transfer them into a LINK wallet. A LINK wallet is a type of digital wallet that is used to send and receive LINK, similar to a Google wallet or a physical wallet.

Chainlink price experienced growth around mid-2019 to mid-2020. In fact, LINK’s price reached an all-time high of $52.88 on May 9, 2021, as the crypto market rallied with developments also happening in the Chainlink ecosystem. Some investors are still excited about the future potential of LINK, and believe its price will continue to grow. With new projects and applications emerging on a regular basis, Chainlink will be there to bridge the gap between the on-chain and off-chain world. These, among many other reasons, make LINK a worthwhile bet moving into the future. And if you are an American interested in buying LINK, Netcoins provides a simple and easy way to get started.
