To become a node operator in the Chainlink Network and begin delivering external data to smart contracts, there are a few technical requirements within the Chainlink node setup to ensure a smooth and reliable operation. The core components include:
Chainlink Node client software – Open source infrastructure that a node operator runs, which bridges the on-chain and off-chain environments.
Data source subscriptions – The off-chain data source APIs a Chainlink node connects to and fetches data from on the behalf of requesting smart contracts.
On-chain oracle contract – The Chainlink node’s smart contract that monitors for data queries and forwards responses back to the requesting user’s smart contract.
External monitoring systems – Peripheral off-chain infrastructure that monitors the performance and reliability of a Chainlink node in real-time.
Each Chainlink node operator interacts with these components on a regular basis. Together, they make up a Chainlink node and enable the secure delivery of data to any blockchain.
How Nodes Sell Data To
The Chainlink Network’s flexible framework supports two Chainlink node models, which supports both the existing need to rapidly onboard off-chain data providers with little-to-no integration work, as well as the long-term transformation of data/API infrastructure into delivering its own signed data directly to smart contracts.
