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 ChainSafe, a leading blockchain protocol and infrastructure development firm, has been awarded a Chainlink Community Grant for the expansion, improvement, and on-going support of the Chainlink Oracle Pallet created for Polkadot’s interoperable multi-chain ecosystem. This grant will significantly expand the oracle pallet software, allowing developers building applications on Polkadot parachains, Kusama parachains, and Substrate-based blockchains to integrate a highly secure and reliable source of external data feeds.
Providing developers across the Polkadot ecosystem access to improved tooling to connect their smart contracts to real-world data will enable the creation of more advanced DeFi, NFT, and on-chain gaming applications. This grant will improve the capabilities and secure the long-term development of the Chainlink Oracle Pallet, therefore allowing developers to combine the interoperability and scalability of the Polkadot ecosystem with the connectivity and reliability of Chainlink oracles.
As a part of the grant, ChainSafe will provide several key short-term and long-term components to the ongoing development of the pallet, including:
- Upgrade the Chainlink Oracle Pallet to support the Substrate v3 framework, which includes OnNewData/OnAnswer callback functions, state pruning, and debt management to increase performance and minimize developer friction.
- Provide Substrate continual engineering resources to the ongoing development of the Chainlink Oracle Pallet, including implementing new features and providing support for integrations from external developers in the open-source community.
ChainSafe is a global leader ...
