Introducing: Concurrence.io — Decentralized Blockchain Oracle
Traditional smart contracts are incredibly powerful, but are unable to communicate directly with APIs and other valuable data on the internet.
This problem is solved by oracles that make off-chain requests and deliver the content on-chain. However, only centralized oracles exist today and this is holding back the Ethereum ecosystem.
A decentralized Ethereum oracle is needed to power the next generation of smart contracts.
For the past few months I have been building out a fleet of smart contracts that facilitate this exact thing. I am now launching the exploration as https://concurrence.io and looking for community involvement.
If you are a developer, miner, or general blockchain enthusiast that would like to participate in this exploration into building a fully decentralized oracle network, please contact me.
