    The Purpose of Integrating Chainlink

    The purpose of bringing Chainlink into this collaboration is to ensure that data published on Everipedia’s official channels come directly from the internal system of the news agency, Associated Press.

    The report says:

    “The Everipedia Chainlink node will provide smart contracts access to U.S. election data backed by a cryptographic proof that can be used to verify the data from our node comes directly from the original Associated Press API to which Everipedia has exclusive, authenticated access.”

    Associated Press’ Involvement In United States Elections

    Since 1848, the Associated Press has been counting votes in the United States national, state, and local elections in all 50 states.

    The Associated Press will be able to sign and publish election data concurrently across multiple blockchains through Everipedia’s integration with Chainlink’s decentralized infrastructure. In this regard, the news agency will gain the ability to provide strong guarantees of verifiable and tamper-proof records of election results.
