How Chainlink Provides Secure and Reliable Oracles
Given the historical performance of Chainlink Price Feeds, we identified them as the most effective and secure solution in the market. Unlike other oracles that are centralized or rely on low-quality data, Chainlink Price Feeds use high-quality data and decentralized infrastructure to prevent inaccurate data or data feed outages.
Some of the notable features of Chainlink Price Feeds include:
- High-Quality Data — Chainlink Price Feeds source data from numerous premium data aggregators, leading to price data that’s aggregated from hundreds of exchanges, weighted by volume, and cleaned from outliers and suspicious volumes. Chainlink’s data aggregation model generates accurate global market prices that are resistant to API downtime, flash crash outliers, and data manipulation attacks like flash loans.
- Secure Node Operators — Chainlink Price Feeds are secured by independent, security-reviewed, and Sybil-resistant oracle nodes run by leading blockchain DevOps teams, data providers, and traditional enterprises. Chainlink nodes have a strong track record for reliability, even during high gas prices and extreme network congestion.
- Decentralized Network — Chainlink Price Feeds are decentralized at the data source, oracle node, and oracle network levels, generating strong protections against downtime and tampering by either the data provider or the oracle network.
- Reputation — Chainlink provides a robust reputation framework and set of on-chain monitoring tools that allow users to independently verify the historical performance of node operators and oracle networks, as well as check the real-time prices being offered.
“Our work integrating Chainlink is a major milestone, helping ensure users are consistently referencing fair market exchange rates within our marketplace. Chainlink price data reflects wide market coverage and is backed by decentralized infrastructure for high tamper resistance and availability, resulting in a more reliable and trusted user experience on CryptoZoon.”
