Associated Press Mulling Over Launching Chainlink Node For Publishing Data

The Associated Press news agency recently declared that it would be launching its own Chainlink oracle node to make sure any data from its United States newspaper and broadcaster members would be cryptographically verified.

In a recent announcement, the Associated Press mentioned that smart contract developers would have admittance to the agency’s economic, sports, and race call data once the node was operational. As per the Associated Press, it will be publishing data on-chain for developers to access and reference in any pertinent applications, in addition to providing information on forthcoming elections and serving artists working with NFTs.

The director of blockchain and data licensing at the Associated Press, Dwayne Desaulniers mentioned,

“Chainlink technology is the ideal way to provide smart contract developers anywhere in the world with direct, on-demand access to AP’s trusted economic, sports, and race call data. Working with Chainlink allows this information to be compatible with any blockchain.”

It is to be noted that this is not the news agency’s first swoop into blockchain technology. The Associated Press was allegedly interested in prospecting methods to secure IP rights, assist ethical journalism, and keep track of content usage when it partnered with blockchain-based journalism startup Civil in 2018. Moreover, the Associated Press published the results of the controversial 2020 United States presidential election onto the EOS and Ethereum blockchains.
