  • Tim Berners-Lee: ‘Web3 is not the web at all’
    14 projects | | 4 Nov 2022
    This is by no means an exhaustive list, just a smattering of some of the bigger projects doing neat things.

    The graph protocol - decentralized blockchain indexing feeding a network of graphQL servers hosting the data powering dapps

    Chainlink - decentralized on-chain oracles for basically any piece of data from the real world -

    MakerDAO - creator of the first “soft pegged” stablecoin, it is a series of smart contracts that allow people to lock up crypto as collateral and mint DAI, uses a number of neat and novel mechanisms to keep peg by adjusting interest rates and incentivizing economic behavior

    Compound - a decentralized lending and borrowing protocol with no centralized authority handling liquidations/collateral pricing/etc.

    Uniswap - a decentralized exchange for swapping assets in a trustless way, has neat features like flash loans where you can borrow a large amount of money (millions of dollars) for the length of one transaction, as long as the money is returned with a fee. This allows anyone to do things like capture arbitrage opportunities, liquidate large positions, or whatever else can be done in one transaction.

    A lot of these are DAOs using smart contracts to propose and vote on binding proposals on chain and adjust parameters within the protocol or paying contributors and whatnot. You can see an example here

    Beyond that there’s other blockchains focused on specific use cases like GameFi, bridges connecting together different blockchains and moving liquidity between them in a mostly seamless way, massive research attention being paid to zero knowledge proofs (which have a lot of potential implications in the real world), and multi-sig contracts for only doing things when a quorum of key holders come together and signal their intent.

  • What do you think about the Bifrost Testnet launch soon?
    2 projects | | 21 Sep 2022
    I have managed to complete the major part of the interoperability projects this year. I have been optimistic about Cosmos, Polkadot, and Chainlink, and I am becoming increasingly interested in the Bifrost network (layer 1). I've been reading the articles about their upcoming launch. The Bifrost network has introduced some features that other projects do not have yet. However,they are still unsure about the rewards for participating in the BIFROST BIT Testnet Reward Program as described in the article. This contributes to their goal of making the most of the Incentivized Testnet and ensuring that BIFROST is stress-tested and ready for mainnet. I still need to learn more about the Network and how it differs from the DOT and cosmos projects. I am interested in participating in the launch but still don't have any clear info and how to go about this.
  • 10 Cryptocurrencies You Can Buy on Robinhood

    Chainlink is currently ranked #23 cryptocurrency on CoinMarketCap, with a fully diluted market cap of $7.2 Billion. Chainlink was founded in 2017, and is the most powerful decentralized oracle in the crypto space. LINK has been rapidly integrating off-chain data and external price/data feeds within their smart contract platform. There are limitless use cases for this chain. Robinhood supports LINK buying, selling and deposits/withdrawals via the built in wallet.

    If we wanted to inspect this AggregatorV3Interface aggregator contract, we could go to the following link and check it out => As you can see, it has some functions like version, getRoundData, latestRoundData and so on. The thing is, we can import this aggrgator contract in our smart contract and actually use those functions in our smart contract.

    1) Chainlink may be a great long-term investment due to its first-mover advantage as being the largest decentralized oracle network that provides off-chain data to on-chain smart contracts. A simple introduction to Chainlink & example to what this means is a football bet in a Manchester United-Liverpool match using smart contracts. Say if you bet that Man Utd will beat Liverpool by 4-2, you'll have to place your crypto bet in a smart contract and your winnings will be determined if the match is done and the scoreline is what you predicted. However, the smart contract does not actually know when does the football match end and what's the scoreline on each timestamp unless if someone feeds this information to it. This is where Chainlink comes in to provide these critical data automatically so that the smart contract can determine whether if you win or lose the bet and then transfers the cryptos to the winning wallet addresses accordingly. The difference between a centralized betting platform and a betting platform powered by Chainlink & smart contracts is the data that it provides. Centralized platforms may have the power to alter the rules of the bet or the withdrawal of your winnings, or even give you a fake scoreline data to protect their profits; Chainlink aggregates & updates the scoreline data from multiple oracle nodes to ensure that the scoreline is validated & reliable and you get the winnings/loss you deserved. The smart contract will automatically transfer your winnings to your wallet address if the aggregated scoreline data they received from Chainlink nodes are 4-2 to Man Utd. Check out Chainlink Data Feeds to explore visually how Chainlink works.

  • Testing your Chainlink VRF powered Smart Contract
    2 projects | | 7 Jun 2022
    Before I end this one, I would like to recommend that you check out the contracts VRFCoordinatorV2Interface.sol and VRFCoordinatorV2Mock.sol. You can use VRFCoordinatorV2Interface.sol to implement your own custom Mock Contract or even your own VRF. VRFCoordinatorV2Mock.sol is the Mock contract we used in this tutorial. At the time of writing this is under heavy development and some functions are yet to be completely implemented. But it can still be used to test out functionalities like we did here.
