Yesterday, Chainlink released price reference data for 25 of its decentralized oracle networks that together power more than $100 million in DeFi.

On this special interview episode, @nlw talks with Sergey Nazarov and Kain Warwick, the founders of Chainlink and Synthetix, respectively, about: 

  • The evolution and goals of Synthetix, a novel type of derivatives exchange where users can interact with any asset with a price feed 
  • The challenge Synthetix faced around spinning up their own oracles around price feeds
  • The history of their collaboration and how Synthetix came to work with Chainlink
  • Chainlink's approach to building decentralized oracles for data such as price feeds
  • Chainlink’s announcement yesterday about the new published price reference data for 25 oracle networks
  • The state of the idea of decentralization, and how what was previously a concept is becoming operationalized
  • One thing that gives them pause or scares them about DeFi and crypto and one thing that makes them excited for the future
