Blockchain-based secure identity and credit score company Bloom has integrated with Chainlink, to bridge the gap between traditional and decentralized finance. In an official tweet, Chainlink stated that the integration will now allow DeFi apps to access Bloom’s verifiable credential data, such as credit history and accreditation sourced from traditional bureaus.
In a blog post on their official website, Bloom stated that the intention behind the integration was to expand the potential usage of the ‘Verifiable Credential’ by making it accessible to DeFi applications via Chainlink. It further added,
Chainlink is a decentralized Oracle network that allows decentralized finance applications to securely access off-chain data feeds, APIs, and traditional bank payments. In short, it makes traditional and decentralized finance systems to seamlessly integrate with each other. It provides secure oracles to giants like Google, Oracle, and SWIFT, as well as to leading decentralized projects like Polkadot/Substrate, Synthetix, Loopring, Aave, OpenLaw, Conflux, etc.
On the other hand, Bloom is a blockchain based credit score solutions platform, which empowers consumers with ownership of their identity and financial data.
