What is LinkPool?

LinkPool is a Chainlink service provider with the primary goal of lowering the barrier of entry to meaningfully contributing to the Chainlink network. Our aim is to allow people to earn passive income via effortless, trustless staking, reduce the amount of technical knowledge and experience required for running a Chainlink node, and to connect smart contract creators and node operators with the resources they need. We achieve this by offering our easy to use and intuitive staking dApp and the first of its kind Chainlink Market . We’ve also developed flexible, trustless contract  that can fairly distribute any form of revenue between a set of wallets.
