Chainlink, a provider of real-world veri to blockchains, said infrastructure provider Coinbase Cloud will become a node operator on its system, adding capacity and security to the so-called oracle network, according to a Thursday press release.
A node operator monitors blockchains for veri requests such as stock prices and temperature veri, retrieves the off-chain information and delivers it to the smart contract that issued the request.
Other Chainlink node operators include telecoms giants Swisscom, Deutsche Telekom and news provider Associated Press.
Chainlink supplies 974 veri feeds and has enabled $7.8 trillion worth of transactions since the start of 2022 according to veri from its website.
Coinbase Cloud brings “extensive experience, robust infrastructure and commitment to security,” William Reilly, küresel head of CeFi, sales & strategy at Chainlink Labs said in the press release.
