      About Chainlink

      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.The Chainlink ecosystem revolves around the LINK token and the LINK network. Through the release of APIs and other platforms, the developers plan to enhance the applicability and usability of smart contracts across the business world.

      History of Chainlink(LINK)

      Chainlink like all other cryptocurrencies is based on the model of the first actual cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. However, before Bitcoin’s and Chainlink’s time , cryptocurrencies were much more different, relying instead on a centralized power structure rather than the decentralized governance we see today. If it weren’t for the works of cryptographers such as David Chaum, Wei Dai, Nick Szabo and Hal Finney, who established some of the ground concepts for modern cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Chainlink would not exist today. However, the most important reason why Chainlink was made possible is thanks to a person or a group of people under the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. He took the concepts that cryptographers before him established and managed to create an actual peer-to-peer electronic money system that couldn’t be counterfeited. If Satoshi Nakamoto didn’t create Bitcoin, it is hard to say if Chainlink or most cryptocurrencies would exist today.

      Chainlink is a cryptocurrency with the symbol LINK and it’s price ticker on our website is 2.99. Its current price is 2.99 and the total change over the past 24 hours is -0.12. Chainlink boasts a volume of 2,171,099.96 in the past 24 across your selected exchanges.

      Chainlink Characteristics

      Cryptocurrencies like Chainlink use strong cryptographic protocols, or very complex computer code to secure transfers of information, in order to create a safe system that is notoriously difficult to crack. The programmer of digital currencies such as Chainlink base these protocols on complex mathematic and computer engineering fundamentals, creating a structure that makes it impossible to replicate funds for Chainlink and also hides the identities of the parties involved on any transaction on Chainlink network , unless the participants freely disclose their information.

      Chainlink Operates on a Blockchain

      Chainlink, like most cryptocurrencies operates on a blockchain, a new and disruptive technology that offers benefits for storing, securing and transferring information that was not otherwise possible before its inception. The idea of blockchain was first discovered in 1991 by Stuart Haber and W. Scott Stornetta, however it was not until an anonymous person or group under the alias of Satoshi Nakamoto that created the first functional blockchain (Bitcoin’s blockchain) and improved on the ideas of Haber and Scornetta to create a truly functional distributed ledger.

      You can imagine the blockchain that Chainlink is based on as a giant, distributed database where every transaction’s information is recorded and then spread on a massive network of connected nodes or computers. The information for transaction of Chainlink is then multiplied and stored on each individual node, so in order to change it you would have to access he majority of the Chainlink’s nodes at the same time, which has so far proven to be impossible.

      The advantages that Chainlink runs on a blockchain are that it is very cost effective to run, compared to other centralized resources, due to the cost of operating being split amongst all the network participants.

      No one can alter the defining characteristics that govern Chainlink base, unless certain conditions are met and changes are implemented by the developer team or a network wide consensus is reached for the changes to be applied.

      One disadvantage of operating on a blockchain is that generally, transactions with Chainlink are final, meaning that is very unlikely that a transaction can be rolled back if a mistake occurs. Be careful when transacting cryptocurrencies such as Chainlink and make sure you double check all the details of the transaction before submitting it.

      Chainlink also boasts a higher degree of safety, as the mechanisms of the blockchain are incredibly hard to crack

      Chainlink Advantages

      Decentralized Point of Control

      Chainlink (LINK) is defined by a decentralized governance system, which does not rely on a single point of control to manage transactions on the network in the same way a bank would. Because of this Chainlink’s network features a distinct advantage that makes it very difficult to counterfeit or imitate. Another advantage of being decentralized is that any attacks on Chainlink’s network will have to be in multiple places at the same, whereas a bank or any centralized system will have an host of servers in one place.

      Cost Efficient

      Generally speaking, auditing records is a time consuming and expensive process, whereas for Chainlink which stores all its records on the blockchain, this can be done with minimal effort and in a much shorter time.

      Establishing a Digital Identity

      You can create your own identity on the Chainlink blockchain, which can be though of as an account of sorts. Whenever you open an “account” on the Chainlink blockchain, you will be given a private key, which lets you interact with the blockchain, and a public key, which let others identify and interact with you.

      Immutable

      Since all information that is transmitted on the Chainlink blockchain is stored and secured on a wide network of computers or nodes, you can always be sure that the information presented is valid and has not been tampered with.

      Chainlink Supply Details

      Chainlink is distinguished from traditional fiat currencies due to way the supply works for most cryptocurrencies. Another interesting fact about Chainlink’s supply is there can be two other types of supply aside from the maximum supply. One is the total supply which indicates the amount of coins there are currently in existence. For Chainlink the total supply is 1000000000. This is the sum of all Chainlink units that have been mined or created since the network’s creation. . The other one is the circulating supply which for Chainlink is 350000000. This can be different that the total supply due factors such as funds being locked in escrow, coins being locked in masternodes.

      How to Store Chainlink

      There are a few way to store your Chainlinks , and they all involve a certain types of both physical and electronic wallets. Regardless of what kind of wallet you will use, in order to access your Chainlink funds you will need to have a private key and a public key. With the private key, you can access your funds and send them to whoever you like, just as long as it is an address that Chainlink is compatible with. Never ever disclose your Chainlink private key or also called private address, as this will give anyone who has it full control over your wallet. The other type of key is the public key or address, which is used for other people to send Chainlink to your wallet, and this one can be freely disclosed but it can be used to identify you if a name is ever associated with your public address.

      Chainlink Paper Wallet

      The only physical and non-electronic way to store your Chainlink is through a paper wallet, and this is possibly the safest way to protect your Chainlinks. Simply write the private and public keys of your Chainlink wallet on a sheet of paper, however you will need access to an electronic device should you choose to send or move your Chainlink funds to another address. The risk here is losing or damaging the sheet of paper with your Chainlink public key.

      Chainlink Hardware Wallet

      You can store Chainlink on a device like a Trezor or USB drive. You are able to make online transactions by plugging them into any any net enabled device to send Chainlink to another address. Usually the hardware device that you store your Chainlink on is offline which is a great security advantage. Please conduct proper research before purchasing any hardware wallet to store Chainlink funds on as many are outdated or of poor quality.

      Chainlink Desktop Wallet

      Desktop wallets are a convenient and easy way to store your Chainlink coins. Find a reliable wallet software that support Chainlink install it on your PC and that’s pretty much it. It can be dangerous if any virus infects your PC or if any physical damage comes to it, which can result in the loss of all your Chainlink funds.

      Chainlink Online Wallet

      For online wallets, they operate in the cloud and your private and public keys for your Chainlink funds are stored in the cloud as well. Very handy if you plan to access it from multiple devices but they also put your Chainlink at great risk due to security breaches in the cloud storage which is not that unheard of.

      Chainlink Mobile Wallet

      The most easy-to-use method of storing Chainlink is on a mobile wallet. It is a simple smartphone application where you set up an account and you can use it to send Chainlink by scanning a QR code or even use it to pay in any shops that accept Chainlink. However, your Chainlink funds can be lost if your phone is damaged or if its security is breached.

      Chainlink Summary

      Chainlink’s network can be defined as a payment system, with accounts, transactions and balances. You can store Chainlink on one of the wallet types mentioned above and it will act as your own personal bank account that you are responsible of maintaining and keeping your private keys secure. Chainlink as a cryptocurrency allows you to make secure transactions and you can always check the transaction details by checking the Chainlink public ledger, if applicable. This revolutionary method of being your own bank assured that Chainlink and other cryptocurrencies will play a vital role in the way we conduct transactions and how we define currencies in the future.
