    Hedera Hashgraph And Chainlink

    Hedera Hashgraph’s mainnet recently upgraded to v0.14.0.  In a move towards decentralization, the upgrade brought two pre-existing nodes, 13 and 15, online. The upgrade also included two brand new nodes, 20 and 21, partly operated by Chainlink Labs.

    Hedera is a public distributed ledger built for the development and deployment of dApps and microservices. The distributed ledger runs atop their distinctive hashgraph consensus algorithm. It consists of permissioned nodes under the Hedera Governing Council, “a group of term-limited enterprises that lead the network’s direction.” 

    The network aims to morph into an entirely permissionless model. The addition of the Chainlink node in the recent upgrade is a step in this direction. One of the most notable features of Hedera’s v0.14.0 upgrade is the addition of two nodes (20 and 21) partly operated by Chainlink Labs.

    The developers provide secure distributed ledger middleware that enables users to leverage smart contracts. The network will provide Chainlink integration with the Hedera Token Service (HTS). This development marks the ledger’s move towards a fully permissionless model, as Chainlink steps into the ecosystem and onboarded to the Council. 

    In a statement on Twitter, the smart contract provider announced the partnership, which aims to “bring its proprietary agricultural data on-chain, enabling sustainability-focused DeFi & insurance dApps based on farm credit assessment scores & land monitoring reports.”

    Chainlink Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

    The Chainlink price is breaking towards the $23 support wall. A break below this line will take LINK to the $20 psychological level. However, the decreasing price volatility could prevent such drastic drops from happening.
