As we all know, we need some interaction of safenet with external world. For Example MAID OMNI to SNT is such an example, where our safnetwork could easily perform automatic conversion from OMNI to SNT. This is called crosschain/crossproject aproach.
I have previously suggested to implement not only compute layer, but plugin layer, that will enable external plugins to run and bring such external data from other blockchains or clearnet to the safenetwork.
Safe network has a huge advantage of cheap native storage compared to other blockchain project, so it is a natural place where such external data could be gathered and mixed and allow other projects to benefit from that.
Safe network has solved decentralization already, so bringing computation layer, plugins, oracles etc on top of it should be super easy compared to what was already done.
I would like to show an example of what I was talking about, when I was talking about plugins. Chainlink is a project, that made it to 18billion market cap from 180 million market cap during last 2 years. And it in fact does what I proposed for plugin system. They called it Oracles.
And such oracles process external data, like price ticker of some stocks, or Bitcoin transactions, or any external data processing. They have adapters on top of it, that allow data processing, etc.
So my suggestion is, to look into chainlink oracle implementation and in my humble oppinion we should have such system on Maidsafe.
If creating such custom system is too complicated, we could at least implement a single native plugin, that would allow calling chainlink api. With Chainlink plugin native to safenetwork, safenetwork would simply clone whole chainlink blockchain in real time. With that, there would be native trusted decentralized external source of data for whole safenetwork. It would be super easy to create an exchange, since we would know all price tickers. We would be able to call for example ETH transactions via Chainlink Oracles. This Is How Chainlink Oracles Work on Ethereum | by Alex Roan | The Startup | Medium
Simply implementing native Chainlink plugin would bring us insane amount of options.
