Fantom General Update | August 23 2021

Your bi-weekly update of the Fantom ecosystem.

Smart Contracts can now utilize Chainlink’s decentralized oracle network for high-quality, tamper-proof, and low latency price feeds. Accurate price feeds empower many DeFi functions, such as rebasing mechanics of algorithmic stablecoins, settling futures and options contracts, determining accurate staking rewards in liquidity pools, calculating collateralization ratios in lending and borrowing protocols, decentralized liquidation engines and much more.

This native integration was made possible by a grant given to block42 through the Chainlink Community Grant Program.
