Chainlink is the industry-standard decentralized computing platform powering the verifiable web. Chainlink has enabled over $9 trillion in transaction value by providing financial institutions, startups, and developers worldwide with access to real-world data, offchain computation, and secure cross-chain interoperability across any blockchain. Chainlink powers verifiable applications and high-integrity markets for banking, DeFi, global trade, gaming, and other major sectors.

In short, Chainlink makes smart contracts actually useful.

In this blog, I have compiled some of the best resources across the Internet that explain what Chainlink is and how it powers the Web3 economy. Regardless if you are hearing about Chainlink for the first time or are a long term community member, there is something to learn.
