Creating a future powered by universally connected smart contracts

Building an Economically Fair World for Everyone
A cryptographically enforced system of contracts will take both our daily lives and the world’s emerging markets into a new age of economic fairness, transparency and efficiency—one driven less by vague brand promises and more by the real value created by individuals and institutions.

Through a fusion of principled academic research, together with an industry focus on user needs, Chainlink Labs’ mission is to empower the next generation of smart contracts. We believe that oracle-powered, universally connected contracts will become the dominant form of digital agreement, ensuring a superior and globally accessible system of contracts for all.
