At first, I thought to myself, “Well, not much happened in the world of Chainlink contracts this week”
Admittedly there were only 4 new price feeds created CRO-USD, INR-USD, FB-USD, RAI-ETH. However…
The appearance of the Facebook – USD feed did complete the quintuplet of FAANG stock price pairs as proposed in Synthetix’s SIP 114: Adding FAANG Synths.
And the INR (Indian Rupee) USD feed is a fantastic addition to the ever expanding list of purely FIAT pairs, which if my calculations are correct, now stands at 11
GBP / USD
AUD / USD
CHF / USD
EUR / USD
CAD / USD
CNY / USD
JPY / USD
KRW / USD
SGD / USD- Singapore Dollar
TRY / USD- Turkish Lira
INR / USD
Undoubtedly though, the most notable news of week was the appearance of Chainlink KeeperRegistry contracts.
I would definitely take the time to familiarize yourselves with these contracts, especially 0x4f759 as it has some interesting transactions and functions associated with it, which may become important to the Linkpool distributions in the coming weeks.
The appearance of these KeeperRegistry contracts perhaps ties in with the Chainlink URL keeper.chain.link that briefly gave us a glimpse of the future, before it quickly disappeared after news of it leaked on Twitter.
See you next week.
