We are happy to help our fellow Chainlink node operators get more transparency about their performance, data to satisfy the accountants & tax men, and generally making the non-technical operations a bit easier.

In the first part of this article we gave examples of different blockchain oracle networks and want to continue here with Chainlink as the by far most prominent system and dive deeper into its processes.
In this article, we are going to explain why we need blockchain oracles and the general oracle problem and its use cases. Then we describe the terminology around blockchain oracles and how they work. Last but not least, we present examples of different blockchain oracle networks and provide a list of links for additional reading.
We are very happy to kick-off task force “EMINENT” (Ethereum Mainnet Integration for Enterprises) as part of Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) Mainnet Working Group, together with our existing partners Chainlink and Unibright. Focused on the standards and specifications used to integrate the Ethereum Mainnet with ERP etc, the task force’s focus is to build PoC reference implementations & open sourced guidelines.
The Anyblock Index API will serve as an Chainlink oracle for smart contracts requiring real-time blockchain data from any of our 22+ networks. This makes accessing on-chain information a lot easier and more flexible for smart contract developers.
