The independent news organization Associated Press has announced a partnership with Chainlink, a decentralized oracle network, to host a variety of journalistic data on the blockchain.

Now developers of decentralized applications will be able to receive data in near real time. Chainlink node allows you to broadcast external data to the blockchain. We are talking about financial and sports data or, for example, data on the course of political elections. Associated Press (AP) Director of Blockchain and Data Licensing Dwayne Desaulniers

“As AP has become an important and trusted source of trusted data around the world, we see a need to provide blockchain users with access to data and information they can trust. Blockchain-based networks are a fundamentally important technology, as they not only provide the ability to broadcast truthful data, but also require truthfulness. ”

Interestingly, AP’s collaboration with the Chainlink network of decentralized oracles was reported back in the fall of last year. Then the goal of the partnership was to find fake and inaccurate news. In addition, in March this year, the agency, in collaboration with startup Everipedia, began publishing basketball results on the Ethereum blockchain.
