Chainlink is a bridge that links blockchain platforms to real-world data. Contracts created on the blockchain often rely on up to date information, like stock market prices or exchange rates, and Chainlink uses a network of individuals to source it. The LINK cryptocurrency is used to pay for this data and as a reward to those who provide it.

The blockchain features a lot of ‘smart contracts’: binding contracts that are triggered by a certain condition. An example might be a contract to sell a stock if it’s price hits £100. For this to work, the stock price data needs to be accurate at all times, which is where Chainlink comes in.

Formed in 2017, it’s already widely used in the realm of decentralised finance. Two leading platforms, Yearn Finance and AAVE, were early adopters. As was Google, which uses it to create crypto data sets.

Chainlink works by using groups of individuals instead of a central search engine. These users are known as ‘oracles’, and put up their computing power to respond to a data request as soon as it’s made. They stake LINK as collateral on the reliability of the information and assuming it meets expectations, they’re paid a fee.

The whole process involves a series of contracts stored on Chainlink’s own blockchain, and at the end, each oracle is given a rating based on how well it met the brief. The higher score, the better, and as only the ones with the top scores are chosen for future searches, it incentivises the best possible performance.

You can buy Chainlink on a crypto exchange. An exchange is a marketplace that allows you to sign up, deposit your money, and buy some crypto, just as you would with a stock platform.

Most cryptocurrency brokers allow you to keep the coins you buy in your account. However, you may want to sign up for a dedicated crypto wallet for some extra security.

The simplest way to invest in Chainlink is to buy it outright. However, another option is to simply open a crypto account. Crypto accounts are like regular bank accounts and allow you to store a variety of currencies, send and receive payments, earn interest on savings, and spend freely with a credit card.

You can also invest in crypto more generally through a crypto ETF or a crypto fund. These are financial instruments that give you exposure to a group of leading cryptocurrencies, more suited to high net worth individuals.
