Chainlink Surges After Releasing Mixicles

A few days ago, Chainlink released Mixicles. Through the use of oracles, it will be possible to introduce privacy to public blockchains like Ethereum (ETH). Enterprises that are searching for blockchain networks to operate will now have a more attractive feature for their usage.

“By introducing privacy, public blockchains like Ethereum become substantially more attractive to enterprises because the legal hurdles surrounding data privacy are eliminated in both a cost-effective and scalable manner.”

In this way, Mixicles provide Ethereum with a critical privacy feature to compete with private blockchains.

The network gives smart contracts secure and reliable access to data provides, web APIs, enterprise systems, cloud providers, IoT devices, payment systems and more. 

Chainlink is expanding in the market as a decentralized oracle network that allows smart contracts to have secure and reliable data providers. 

This project provides a market for independent oracles, flexibility to customize them, and a reputation framework that evaluates these oracles using on-chain metrics. 

Mixicles are expected to being live on the Ethereum blockchain in a short time. Before that, there should a third-party security audit of the 188 lines of source code. 

Chainlink is working in order to solve connectivity and privacy problems related to the development of enterprise smart contracts in finance on public blockchains.
