Chainlink oracle, data feeds coming to StarkNet ecosystem


Blockchain scaling know-how agency StarkWare is ready to associate with Chainlink Labs to convey oracle providers, knowledge and worth feeds to the StarkNet ecosystem.

The coalition will see StarkWare be a part of Chainlink’s Scale program and brings Chainlink worth feeds to StarkNet’s testnet. StarkNet tokens will even fund sure working prices for Chainlink oracle nodes, giving Starket builders entry to Chainlink oracle providers and knowledge feeds.
