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.
