The Chainlink Community Grant Program provides financial resources to the many development teams and researchers building a more functional, accessible, and socially impactful Chainlink Network. We encourage talented individual developers and development teams to apply to the grant program here, or if you are a researcher and want to collaborate, contact us.
We’re excited to announce that the blockchain development studio block42 has been selected as a recipient of a community grant to perform a native integration of Chainlink oracles into the high-performance and EVM-compatible smart contract platform OKExChain. The result of this grant will allow smart contract developers to build externally-connected, decentralized applications across numerous industries and use cases, such as DeFi, gaming, NFTs, and more. Additionally, this grant will support the launch of Chainlink Price Feeds—ready-made decentralized oracle networks that provide precise, tamper-proof financial market data—to enable a vast array of on-chain DeFi applications, such as lending, derivatives, stablecoins, collateralized loans, and more.
As part of the grant, block42 will provide several key components to the integration, including:
- Validate and adapt Chainlink contracts to ensure native compatibility with OKExChain
- Test and deploy all Chainlink components to OKExChain mainnet, with continual maintenance and upgrades
- Provide an automated test to verify the integration of OKExChain and Chainlink using test node instances
