21 Mar – 27 Mar Chainlink contract update

I’m going to begin this weeks contract roundup with an excerpt from a blog post.

“Chainlink is set to become the first and primary oracle provider for all Substrate-based chains and eventually the entire Polkadot network.”

This was followed by

“Chainlink has completed an initial integration with a Substrate-based blockchain, marking a major milestone in the mission to bring Chainlink’s market-leading network of decentralized oracles to the Substrate chain ecosystem and Polkadot. This is the first blockchain ecosystem outside of Ethereum that Chainlink will support.

I’m really looking forward to seeing these contracts up and running in the near future.

There were a slew of new, high profile contracts created this week. The GOOGL / USD, AAPL / USD, AMZN / USD, NFLX / USD price feeds appear to be related to Synthetix SIP 114: Adding FAANG Synths.

What Are FAANG Stocks?

In finance, “FAANG” is an acronym that refers to the stocks of five prominent American technology companies: Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Netflix (NFLX); and Alphabet (GOOG) (formerly known as Google).

So, we are just missing Facebook for a FAANG full house. Chainlink?

In addition to the FAANG price feeds, the team also created an FXS / USD price feed. FXS - Frax Share

Chainlink were also busy on the OCR contract front, creating a total of 19 new feeds.
