The Revolution Populi team announced on Jul 14 that they have partnered with Chainlink, to utilize the platform’s proprietary decentralized data oracle technology. The company’s digital ecosystem will use Chainlink’s oracles to record, secure and issue digital payments. Plus, the Chainlink infrastructure will be used to securely connect any DApp to the Revolution’s decentralized public blockchain, with democracy as the basic tenet, since the aim is to challenge the social media giants like Facebook, Twitter etc. who misappropriate user data.
