Event description

Description

Join Chainlink and Wanchain as we demo an integration of a chainlinked smart contract that utilizes Wanchain's cross-chain capability. In this demo, we will show how a smart contract on Ethereum can read state information on Wanchain by utilizing the Chainlink network. For example, by validating the balance of an account on Wanchain, we can determine if a payment has been made, taking advantage of deterministic smart contracts. We will have food and non-alcoholic drinks available both before and after the presentations. We are also planning on Live Streaming the event so that both communities can view it.


Presentations

Chainlink

Smart contracts are tracking to be the leading form of digital agreements for key global industries. The vast majority of useful smart contracts extend beyond the blockchain to connect with external sources, including data feeds, web APIs, and traditional bank payments.

However, to maintain a connected smart contract’s overall reliability, the inputs and outputs to the contract also need to be secure. In this talk, we’ll demonstrate how to Chainlink a smart contract and deliver data cross-chain.

Wanchain

Wanchain will present on why connections between blockchain networks are important, how industry-wide standards for blockchain interoperability could materialize and use cases for a multi-blockchain financial hub.

Projects

About Chainlink

Chainlink is a decentralized oracle network that enables smart contracts to securely access off-chain data feeds, web APIs, and traditional bank payments. Chainlink is consistently selected as one of the top blockchain technologies by leading independent research firms such as Gartner. It is well known for providing highly secure and reliable oracles to both large enterprises (SWIFT) and leading smart contract development teams.

About Wanchain

Wanchain is a blockchain infrastructure connecting the decentralized financial world. The blockchain, a fork of Ethereum, adds cross-chain and privacy protection to create a platform capable of creating a financial superhub of bridged networks. These bridges can be public-to-public (Ethereum to Bitcoin), public-to-private (Etheruem-to-Enterprise), or private-to-private (Enterprise-to-Enterprise. Current integrations include the Ethereum and Bitcoin blockchains, and an ERC20 set made up of Chainlink, MakerDAO, Loopring, and Gemini dollar. Wanchain’s next blockchain bridge will be to EOS.
