B-Harvest is Joining Chainlink as a New Node Operator
Who are we
B-Harvest is a blockchain validator; we participate in many different dPoS networks, such as Cosmos, Polkadot, Terra, Kava, and more. We pursue an “actively participating validator” philosophy, which means that we not only operate validator nodes, but we also deeply engage in each project’s community, governance, discussions, and codebase development.
We think that every network needs a certain number of actively participating validators that provide network input and participate in its growth. Activity from the validator community should include: propose more responsible operation procedures, review technical vulnerabilities, become vocal token holders, exercise the spirit of decentralization, lead governance efforts, and more. Without validators actively participating, validators are relegated to operating hardware, which disconnects the users from the physical operation and maintenance of the actual network.
Why we’re participating in Chainlink
We think Chainlink is becoming the most widely used oracle protocol for not only the Ethereum network, but across all other blockchain networks. A trusted oracle protocol greatly extends the functionality of the smart contracts running on top of these various blockchain, opening up whole new sets of decentralized applications previously unavailable to developers. Blockchains not only need oracles for their off-chain connectivity features, but they need these services in a decentralized manner to remain secure end-to-end. For this reason, we have chosen Chainlink, as it’s the market standard for decentralized oracle services.
We acknowledge that Chainlink has more room to grow. There are many features outlined in their whitepaper that still need to be implemented. These features will provide more functionality and security to their already popular oracle infrastructure. It includes not only technical improvements, but an extensive amount of active participation from the oracle node community
We know that B-Harvest is an important component to further decentralize Chainlink’s infrastructure. We will take a step further too, by actively participating in the Chainlink community and continually searching for ways to enhance Chainlink’s oracle functionality to benefit the entire blockchain space.
If you’re a developer and want to connect your smart contract to existing data and infrastructure outside the underlying blockchain, reach out to us here! We can help you quickly and securely launch your data-enabled application or Chainlink Price Reference Data Contract on mainnet today. You can also visit the developer documentation or join the technical discussion on Discord. Learn more by visiting the Chainlink website or follow us on Twitter or Reddit.
Chainlink is a decentralized oracle network that enables smart contracts to securely access off-chain data feeds, web APIs, and traditional bank payments. It is well known for providing highly secure and reliable oracles to large enterprises (Google, Oracle and SWIFT) and leading smart contract development teams such as Polkadot/Substrate, Synthetix, Loopring, Aave, OpenLaw, Etherisc, Conflux, and many others.
