World Economic Forum Names Chainlink a 2020 Pioneer

Chainlink has been included in a top list of technology pioneers by the World Economic Forum. The selection consists of some of the biggest names which are leaving their mark in several industries, including blockchain and other tech innovations.

Among The Most Promising Tech Integrators

Upon the 20th anniversary of the Tech Pioneers community, The World Economic Forum has chosen the top 100 technology-oriented companies, possibly able to shape industries. The pioneers are delivering technology to optimize fields ranging from agriculture to healthcare via AI, IoT, robotics, blockchain, biotechnology, and many more. 

The decentralized oracle network Chainlink is among the chosen trustworthy companies, recognized as a leader for its contributions to the world of blockchain technology.

According to a recent announcement, Chainlink was included among other early to growth-stage companies and start-ups dedicated to design, develop, and deploy novel technologies and innovations in a variety of fields. Renowned Technology Pioneers Community is an integral part of the broader Global Innovators community of start-ups at the World Economic Forum. 

Over the next two years, Chainlink and its CEO Sergey Nazarov will be participating in a number of key events and initiatives, partnering with policymakers and leaders from the private sector.

“We’re thrilled to be recognized as a Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum,” said Nazarov. “Using smart contracts on the blockchain to bring enforceable guarantees to contractual obligations has widespread social and economic benefits. We’re proud to play a role in bringing accountability and automation to global and local economies, and we look forward to contributing to Forum dialogues on this challenge.”

 Blockchain Technology Appreciation

Many business environments keep finding the perks of using blockchain technology. As CryptoPotato reported a few days ago, KNC’s KyberSwap started a partnership with Chainlink. The token swap network integrated the platform’s price feeds for its supported tokens. The agreement was considered as “further safeguarding against price manipulation by malicious parties.”
