Chainlink (LINK) has been in the crypto news quite a bit recently as it has been noted out as one of the best performing crypto assets of 2019. Its year-to-date return on investment is currently well over +600%. Meaning it is one of the only token/coin among the top 20 (by market cap) that has been consistently in the green.
The main problem Chainlink has set out to solve is that smart contracts cannot access any external data on their own. As the blockchains that power smart contracts do not usually support any methods of native communication with external systems. Currently, developers of smart contracts use centralized oracle services when needing to query external data. This is great, but what happens when the oracle provider has a failure? Your dApp would stop working! Chainlink markets itself as a decentralized oracle network to ensure this would not happen.
