We’re excited to announce that TotemFi — the innovative staking-based, non-punitive prediction markets platform — has integrated Chainlink Price Feeds on the BSC mainnet. By integrating Chainlink’s industry-leading decentralized oracle network, TotemFi has access to high-quality, tamper-proof price feeds needed to assess which of our users have made the most accurate predictions in the future price of BTC.

The launch of TotemFi’s Mainnet represents the culmination of the vision our founders laid out at the inception of the project; to provide the crypto community with a prediction market platform which doesn’t punish inaccuracy, and which incentivises users to harness the wisdom of the crowd principle to do the impossible — predict the future price of Bitcoin!

Fair market asset prices should reflect a volume-weighted average from all trading environments, so we need to make use of an oracle to fetch aggregated price data off-chain and deliver it on-chain to be consumed by our application.
After reviewing various oracle solutions, we integrated Chainlink Price Feeds because they provide a multitude ...
