I was reviewing some material about the Chainlink Market, and I’m beginning to understand how it’s a necessary tool for the environment.
What I’m not really getting however, is how smart contract creators are to evolve and new smart contract creators come to this market if data/API sources are limited. And vice versa, what would promote entities to list their data/API if they do not yet see available smart contracts from which they could derive profit.
The main thrust of my question is; which comes first, the chicken or the egg?
How does one convince a data source to put open up their API, if there is not yet any smart contract construct. How does one encourage smart contract creation for a task, if that data set is not yet available. Almost seems like, you need human engagement on both ends?
