In his monumental Smart Contract Summit #1 keynote, Chainlink Co-founder Sergey Nazarov discussed the inherent flaws of brand-based agreements and explained the superiority of smart contracts—next-generation digital agreements backed by cryptographic truth.
Nazarov also announced the mainnet launch of Chainlink Keepers, a secure off-chain service that enables dApp developers to automate key smart contract functions in a highly reliable, decentralized, and cost-efficient manner.
Nazarov culminated his keynote by introducing the Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP), a new open-source communication standard that enables interoperability between public/private blockchains, layer-2 networks, and existing systems.
