  • Chainlink (LINK) is one of the crypto industry’s most active projects, with the decentralised Oracle network turning its attention to tokenisation and interoperability.
  • The blockchain’s founder, Sergey Nazarov, spoke at the recent Web3 Festival in Hong Kong to highlight Chainlink’s current goals while keeping an eye on the future.
  • Nazarov identified several key trends in the current market, including the necessity for interoperability while also noting that tokenisation was a key factor for institutional entry.
  • In the future, Nazarov believes Chainlink will be a key player in creating an interconnected web of blockchains that support simple cross-chain communication.

Last week’s Web3 Festival hosted in Hong Kong brought together some of the blockchain scene’s brightest minds to discuss the future of the industry. Perhaps one of the most highly-anticipated speeches came from Chainlink founder Sergey Nazarov. The decentralised Oracle network has been one of the hottest protocols of late, forming strong partnerships and constantly developing new technology. During his speech, Nazarov mused on how Chainlink planned to propel the Web3 world forward, while focussing on several challenges the network will overcome.

Interoperability and Secure Asset Transfer Imperative for Web3 Progression

Nazarov took centre stage last week and kicked off his keynote speech by identifying three major trends in today’s capital markets and how they relate to crypto.

  1. Data has become directly connected to value. This can be achieved through various means, but in the blockchain industry, this is mostly through real-world asset tokenisation. Chainlink is a pillar of the tokenisation industry and plans to play a big role here going forward.
  2. Blockchains becoming more and more connected, allowing efficient transfer across a web of chains. Interoperability has long been vital to achieving mainstream adoption across the industry, with Chainlink’s new bridging tech an example of the strides taken in this area.
  3. Crypto has transformed into a payment and an asset transfer system (thanks to tokenisation). Supporting this while maintaining a high level of security is another major challenge for the blockchain industry to solve.

Tokenisation was no doubt the emphasis of Chainlink’s future goals, but there are several other solutions the network is trying to provide. As a decentralised Oracle network, Nazarov discussed the benefits Chainlink has on decentralised ecosystems. The protocol can inject data into assets, help assets move across chains (and improve interoperability) and ensure that all data and tokenised assets are up-to-date in terms of ownership, flow and price.

Looking to the future, Chainlink’s founder pictures an interconnected ecosystem where public and private blockchains can interact in a “compliant” way. This will allow institutions using their own blockchain networks to assist capital flow onto DeFi markets, and vice versa. By reducing the number of onboarding requirements through interoperability, the door will be opened for Defi and Web3 to become a staying power in modern finance.
