The grants will be awarded to projects that are “stimulating two positive feedback loops.” Moreover, these loops involve the expanded availability of on-chain data and enhanced security guarantees for users. However, the ultimate goal is to make smart contracts a dominant form of digital agreements.
Key Categories of Chainlink
Chainlink has identified key categories for potential applications. The categories involve easier consumption of Chainlink networks by various smart contracts. Additionally, it also includes accelerating the placement of additional data onto the Chainlink network. Thus, it revolves around the themes mentioned above for more data, more connectivity, and greater security. Additionally, key categories also incorporate proving a Chainlink oracle network status, security, and reliability to users.
Unveiling Grant Allocation?
Nevertheless, Chainlink has not revealed the total amount allocated for the grant program. It hasn’t revealed much about individual payout amounts. Payment of grants has to be done via cash or LINKS. Additionally, Chainlink’s native LINK token has currently set new all-time highs. However, these advancements are likely to draw more opponents.
