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 blockchain development firm Qubistry has been selected as a recipient of a Chainlink Community Grant to natively integrate Chainlink OCR into the Bitcoin-based smart contract platform RSK. The grant will enable hybrid smart contract development on RSK, wherein developers can easily build and launch externally connected, decentralized applications across numerous industries and use cases, such as DeFi, gaming, NFTs, and more. Additionally, the grant will support the launch of Chainlink’s cost-efficient OCR-based Price Feeds—ready-made decentralized oracle networks that provide precise, tamper-proof financial market data. Chainlink Price Feeds will enable a vast array of DeFi applications on RSK, such as for decentralized lending, derivatives, stablecoins, collateralized loans, and more.
As a part of this grant, Qubistry will provide several key components to the integration, including:
- Validate and adapt Chainlink contracts to ensure native compatibility with RSK and adapt the RSK core to provide compatibility of key EVM operations.
- Test and deploy all Chainlink components to both the RSK Testnet and Mainnet, as well as providing future maintenance and upgrades as required.
- Provide automated tests to verify the integration of Chainlink onto the RSK network using test node instances and provide a working external adapter that fetches off-chain data and makes it accessible on-chain through the Chainlink OCR aggregator contracts.
