Chainlink releases new whitepaper in a shift toward smart contract computations

In its new vision, Chainlink would allow anyone to deploy an arbitrary executable on its network. Chainlink (LINK) has unveiled its new whitepaper on Thursday, which details a planned expansion and pivot into creating oracle networks for computation. The proposal would see Chainlink generalize its oracle network into a “meta layer” of Decentralized Oracle Networks, or DONs.The new architecture supports a larger selection of use cases, expanding its suite of services to off-chain computation of data. In Chainlink’s vision, these computational oracles would create a class of “hybrid smart....
