Artifact Staking Joins the Chainlink Network as a Node Operator
The Chainlink Network helps secure billions of dollars in value for decentralized applications across the Web3 ecosystem. Chainlink node operators, who include DevOps teams from industry-leading companies such as Deutsche Telekom and Swisscom, are a fundamental part of this.
Today, we’re excited to announce that Artifact Staking — a premier multi-chain validator service and RPC provider for leading blockchains — has joined this group of world-class node operators to help provide critical infrastructure to the Web3 economy.
Artifact Staking provides next-level blockchain infrastructure for a number of prominent Proof-of-Stake networks, such as Cosmos, Harmony, Helium, Polkadot, and Solana. These services are supported by our elite Web3 DevOps team, who have years of experience in sectors including traditional finance, risk management, and commodities trading. Thanks to a series of redundant components, our services have no single point of failure, and we have a strong track record of maintaining 24/7 uptime.
Chainlink is the industry-standard decentralized oracle network. Joining this network enables us to help provide the core infrastructure powering the Web3 economy with data points that offer definitive truth about the real world. In return, we can earn revenue by receiving rewards for network contributions.
Our decision to join the Chainlink Network was easy. The Chainlink Network is backed by a time-tested feature set that enables security, transparency, and authenticity in data delivery. There are many features that make it the leading oracle solution for dApps and node operators, including:
- Data Integrity — Chainlink nodes cryptographically sign all data supplied on-chain to verify its origin, preventing man-in-the-middle attacks.
- Blockchain Agnostic — Chainlink nodes are compatible with any blockchain environment, serving as a single gateway to sell data to any current or future blockchain.
- Widely Adopted — Chainlink is the most widely used oracle network in the blockchain industry, providing access to a vast addressable market of potential data consumers.
- Provably Secure — Chainlink is thoroughly audited open-source software that already secures billions of dollars in value, showcasing its ability to trigger the automation of high-value smart contacts live in production.
“Chainlink provides some of the most critical infrastructure for the Web3 economy. Becoming a node operator in the Chainlink Network gives us the opportunity to help developers securely and reliably fetch real-world data in order to build exciting new decentralized applications across DeFi, insurance, gaming, and other sectors. Moreover, running a Chainlink node helps us expand our revenue streams and further our goal of participating in all major Web3 value flows.” — Nick Everett, Partner Artifact Staking
Chainlink is the industry standard for building, accessing, and selling oracle services needed to power hybrid smart contracts on any blockchain. Chainlink oracle networks provide smart contracts with a way to reliably connect to any external API and leverage secure off-chain computations for enabling feature-rich applications. Chainlink currently secures tens of billions of dollars across DeFi, insurance, gaming, and other major industries, and offers global enterprises and leading data providers a universal gateway to all blockchains.
