- Chainlink’s cross-chain protocol is now integrated with Coinbase’s base.
- The move improves decentralized finance interoperability.
- The collaboration hints at a future with seamless cross-chain transactions.
After posting significant growth just months before its launch, the Base Network continues to impress investors. Most recently, the decentralized oracle network Chainlink announced its integration with Base. The move will give Coinbase’s network access to real-world data, boosting its utility.
Chainlink Extends Oracle Network to Coinbase
On Wednesday, September 27, Chainlink announced its decision to extend its cross-chain protocol to Coinbase’s base. This integration aims to enhance the interoperability between blockchains, ensuring smoother and more efficient transactions.
Chainlink, known for its decentralized Oracle network, bridges the gap between smart contracts and real-world data. Its network will enable Base developers to build innovative decentralized applications (dApps) that can function across multiple blockchains.
“Developers now have access to the leading interoperability protocol, allowing them to build cross-chain applications and services easily,” said Johann Eid, Chief Business Officer at Chainlink Labs.
Base creator Jesse Pollak added that the launch will let developers “securely build cross-chain applications, empowering them to experiment further and unlock new use cases.”
What’s Next for Base?
Just one month after its launch, Base experienced an unprecedented surge in transactions and unique addresses.
The most notable achievement for Base is its triumph over Solana in terms of Total Value Locked (TVL). On Monday, September 25, Base boasted a TVL of roughly $374.43 million, overshadowing Solana’s $306.93 million.
Built as a Layer-2 network on the Ethereum framework, Base aims to offer faster transactions, scalability, and reduced gas fees. While it swears on decentralization, Base has a strong backer: Coinbase, one of the largest crypto exchanges in the world.
On the Flipside
- Base’s recent surge in activity and popularity is likely due to applications like FriendTech and Aerodrome Finance.
- As a Layer-2 solution built on the Ethereum framework, Base benefits from Ethereum’s established network effects and user base.
Why This Matters
The partnership between Coinbase and Chainlink could lead to the development of new dApps and platforms. In turn, this would boost blockchain use cases and adoption.
