What are AccuWeather and Chainlink?
AccuWeather is an American company that delivers weather data, forecasts and warnings to over a billion people worldwide every day. In addition to its own channels, the operator works with third-party sites and applications (more 200 thousand business partners).
Thanks to the Chainlink node, all these services will now be able to transfer information across multiple blockchains. They will have their own cryptographic signature that confirms that the data belongs to AccuWeather.
Chainlink is a decentralized network of oracles that allows blockchains to download information from any third-party services. It has become a key part of the DeFi ecosystem.
Chainlink is now forging close ties with both cryptocurrencies and real companies. In October, they began collaborating with the Associated Press – now media data is transmitted to all connected blockchains.
