Integration with Chainlink
DeFi applicants will also obtain conclusive online documentation of the fully-backed WBTC collateralization. BitGo will collaborate with the Chainlink team to streamline the auditability of the WBTC reserves to boost the stability of the WBTC and meet the increasing demand.
BitGo has implemented the proof-of-reserve system of Chainlink to improve the reliability and auditability of Wrapped BTC, the most wrapped and used type of Bitcoin on the market.
This function is particularly useful for decentralized applications which use WBTC to safeguard other digital assets. User confidence improves on the entire sector, and DeFi implementations have more options for protection against unequal changes by automating the audit protocol and increasing clarity for WBTC collateralisation.
DeFi applications at Ethereum will be linked to a Proof of Reserve Contract, which has continuously been modified by a decentralized oracle network operated by Chainlink, in order to provide clear and fully automatic readings of WBTC 's reserves on-demand.
In order to automatically check that any WBTC coin is completely endorsed with an equivalent BTC balance in the Bitcoin blockchain custodial address, smart Ethereum contract application will then ask the Reserve Proof of Contract.
If the proof of reserve contract is different from the amount of WBTC published, applications can use customized logic such that username funds can be easily and safely protected.
It is critical that the oracles be tamper-proof against some sort of exploitation or downtimes to ensure that property data from the Bitcoin blockchain is accurate and distributed to the Ethereum network in a timely manner.
