Chainlink (LINK) is an ERC-20 token used in the Chainlink platform to incentivise network operators and collateralise the network’s smart contract agreements. The Chainlink platform is a decentralised oracle network that securely connects blockchains with off-chain data. Enterprises that use Chainlink can access any of the major blockchain networks, including Ethereum, Solana, and Terra. 

While traditional oracles are centralised, Chainlink decentralises the process of moving data on and off blockchains through the use of hybrid smart contracts. LINK tokens are used to reward Chainlink network operators for retrieving data from off-chain feeds, formatting data into accessible formats, and performing off-chain computations. The Chainlink oracle network has been used to fairly distribute non-fungible tokens (NFTs), gamify personal savings, and facilitate recalibrations of cryptocurrency token supplies, among other applications.

Additionally, with the reintroduction of our Legacy Maker Rebates for Tether – margined contracts, users can now receive a rebate of 0.02% when trading LINKUSDT.
