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 to perform a native integration of Chainlink into the Cosmos-SDK. The grant will support the many smart contract development teams within the Cosmos ecosystem wanting to build externally connected decentralized applications on Tendermint-based blockchains using Chainlink oracles. Once complete, the Cosmos ecosystem will be able to support a wide range of DeFi, NFT, gaming, and insurance products and markets thanks to seamless and native access to Chainlink’s time-tested and fully functional oracle networks.
Through funding provided by Chainlink community grant, ChainSafe will:
- Create a Cosmos-SDK module that supports Chainlink oracle networks by accepting aggregate signed data from a set of oracles and storing it in the blockchain state.
- Ensure compatibility with existing Chainlink Off-Chain Reporting (OCR) Data Feeds by supporting oracle reports produced by its peer-to-peer consensus protocol.
- Provide support for multiple data feeds within a single module instance and allow the module to interact with other modules to dispense rewards to valid participating data providers.
The creation of a Chainlink module for the Cosmos-SDK will enable application developers in the Cosmos ecosystem to access Chainlink’s widely used Price Feeds, including the most recent and historical data. The Chainlink module will also support the existing Chainlink OCR feeds already used in production and expand support for connection to any API, opening up access to premium authenticated data sources and enabling data aggregation to be ...
