With over 43 million transactions and a quarter million wallets on mainnet only two months after launch, IOST is cementing its position as one of the Big 4 blockchain platforms together with Ethereum, Tron and EOS. IOST puts significant emphasis on DApp development, as it is the foundation for a healthy and vibrant blockchain ecosystem. At present, there are already 15 Dapps on the IOST mainnet with thousands of active users and growing transaction volumes. IOST is expanding its Dapp platform by encouraging developers to create and build Dapps that are useful and relevant to the real world.

Chainlink — The Leading Oracle Solution For IOST

We chose Chainlink because it is the leading decentralized oracle solution. It is used by numerous top projects including Polkadot (Web3), Ocean Protocol, Streamr, Accord, and many others. Chainlink has also been covered by major publications including MIT Technology Review, Forbes and the Wall Street Journal. As the first decentralized oracle, Chainlink is the perfect fit for IOST compared to other centralized oracle solutions. Thus, partnering with Chainlink is aligned with the vision of IOST, which aims to build a truly decentralized blockchain platform. IOST prioritizes the safety and reliability of our ecosystem — Chainlink is also widely recognized by the industry for their excellence in these areas.
