Smart contracts promise to revolutionize how all agreements work through an entirely new level of technologically enforced guarantees, leading them to become the dominant form of digital agreement. You can learn more details about our approach in our whitepaper, recent announcements with large companies like Google and a larger collection of writings here.
An Industry Leading Team
We're an experienced team of developers, academics, and results oriented entrepreneurs always seeking to make everything "the best we can make it". Becoming part of the Chainlink team means working closely with team members and advisors who've founded and helped scale companies such as Ethereum, Amazon, Facebook, DocuSign, Twilio, Pivotal Labs, and more. We have an active idea meritocracy inside of Chainlink, focused on achieving our common goal of changing the way society's most important agreements actually work, by building the next generation of smart contracts.
A Growing Community
We have an active, large and growing community supporting our open source project's success. We pride ourselves on building the best possible blockchain middleware/oracle, which all smart contract developers can one day use to take their smart contract to the next level of usefulness. We work in a rapidly developing space at the intersection of several fields, exploring and leveraging the latest research available in cryptography, game theory and computer science. We've been recognized as one of the top blockchain companies by leading independent research firms such as Gartner, and featured in leading publications such as MIT Technology Review, Forbes, Coindesk, and more.
A Revolutionary Product
As the method of agreement has evolved over time, contracts have shifted from paper representations of terms, to digital representations of terms, and now to self-executing "smart contracts". We believe smart contracts are on track to become the dominant form of digital agreement because of the unique trust dynamics they put in place between contracting parties; providing technological guarantees of a contract's expected outcome. Our goal is to make the next generation of smart contracts come to life, by allowing smart contracts on any blockchain to securely access critical off-chain data.
