What is Chronicle Protocol?

Chronicle Protocol is a trailblazing Oracle solution that has exclusively secured over $10B in assets for MakerDAO and its ecosystem since 2017. With a history of innovation, including the invention of the first Oracle on Ethereum, Chronicle Protocol continues to redefine Oracles. A blockchain-agnostic protocol, Chronicle overcomes the current limitations of transferring data on-chain by developing the first truly scalable, cost-efficient, decentralized, and verifiable Oracles, rewriting the rulebook on Oracle data transparency and accessibility.

Chronicle’s Key Developments:

  • Cost-Efficient Oracles: Chronicle has developed a smart contract called Scribe, which via an optimistic Schnorr hybrid design delivers gas fee savings of over 60% on L1 and 68% on L2. With this development, cost-efficient push Oracles become a reality.
  • Scalability: Due to this huge reduction in operational costs of Oracles, Chronicle can scale to deliver real-time and precise data.
  • End-to-End Verifiable Data: Using the on-chain Dashboard called The Chronicle, anyone can provably track where every element of data has come from, creating the first censorship-resistant layer for data transmission.
  • Accessibility: Chronicle Oracles have been designed to be blockchain agnostic, with a plug-and-play interface for those currently using Chainlink or Maker Oracles.
  • Unrivaled Security: Underpinning the protocol is a community-powered consensus network of 22 Feed node operators that includes trusted protocols such as Infura, Etherscan, dYdX, Gnosis, Argent, Gitcoin, Maker, and more.
  • Resilience: Relays transfer data over multiple transport layers on and off-chain, including Secure Scuttlebutt and Tor. This ensures if a layer, Feed, or Relay were to go down, the protocol would continue operating as long as a quorum can be reached.

From September 2023, Chronicle, the previously exclusive Oracle to MakerDAO, will be made available to all Web3 builders.

Keynote, Workshops, and Presentations

Every day at ETH Warsaw you can take part in one of Chronicle Protocol’s workshops, or listen to a presentation.

This is your chance to understand how implementing Chronicle Oracles can bring down your operational costs and increase your protocol’s security, decentralization, and verifiability.

Nik Kunkel — Keynote — Chronicle Protocol: Verification is the Ultimate Form of Trust
