The highly-acclaimed, fast, and open-source blockchain catering to the requirements of DeFi, Harmony has announced the news about its strategic collaboration with Chainlink, the market-leading oracle network. To celebrate the collaboration with Chainlink, Harmony has dedicated a grants pool worth $7M for Chainlink-powered applications working on its blockchain.
Chainlink team took to its official Twitter handle to broadcast the news about its integration into the Harmony network and the grant. The post read:
According to the blog post, Chainlink oracles will give off-chain data resources to Harmony users in a seamless way. The DApp developers will enjoy access to accurate price feeds and other off-chain data resources for usage in their projects. The integration will fuel Harmony’s core objectives to mainstream DeFi applications and cross-border finance through its revolutionary tools. The oracle solutions will facilitate Harmony in executing several cross-border finance transactions via accurate price feeds of off-chain data, thereby making value transfer highly secured and efficient.
“Increasing utility and decentralization is critical for our long-term success. This integration with Chainlink is key in that journey, and we’re so excited to see developers exercise creativity to build DeFi and cross-border finance on Harmony with Chainlink. My vision is to fund hundreds of projects with our generous USD 7m Grant Program,” quoted Stephen Tse, co-founder, Harmony.
