In decentralized systems, blockchains like the Ethereum Virtual Machine and Bitcoin now offer users the ability to place wagers, create complex logic, and even adjudicate judgements such as wills. When these ‘Smart Contracts’ execute, they rely on Oracles to access real-world data.
The Goldfish Oracle program
Our new initiative brings together the Public URL project and the FreeWeb archive project to allow users to receive a highly-verified* and filtered data set on a public endpoint.
Perfect for betting, better for accountability
While this is mostly an experiment right now, it’s our hope that through the success of this program, we’ll be able to help build a decentralized, peer-governed data archive with WebFree. As the blockchain projects begin to use Goldfish, we hope we can help them make it a home.
