Chainlink has announced strategic initiatives to bridge the gap between traditional finance (TradFi) and blockchain technology. The crypto oracle provider plans to expand the Cross Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP) for seamless cross-chain transactions, supporting the virtual tokenization of Real World Assets (RWAs). Chainlink also introduced Chainlink Data Streams, providing low-latency data to decentralized applications (dApps), and Chainlink Functions, allowing smart contracts to connect to any API for enhanced utility and customizability.
