Where can I pay with chainlink?

Since bitcoin was launched in 2009, cryptocurrency has become more and more widespread. Because of that, more places - primarily abroad - have begun accepting cryptocurrency as a legal payment method, including chainlink (also called LINK).

As of 2022, it’s still very few stores and websites who accept cryptocurrency in Denmark. If they do, it’s usually the most popular cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and ethereum .

Chainlink actually wasn’t developed to be a payment method in the classical sense, such as bitcoin for example is. Chainlink is a token, while cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin (BTC) or ethereum (ETH) are coins.

You can easily buy and sell chainlink in the same way as other cryptocurrencies - but the whole idea behind chainlink is that it’s a token, which is to be used to pay for certain activities on a blockchain.

The difference between coins and tokens

Cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and ethereum are coins. They’re coins, because bitcoin is connected to bitcoin’s blockchain, and ethereum is connected to ethereum’s blockchain.

Chainlink is a token, because it was originally built on top of ethereum’s blockchain. This means that chainlink doesn’t have its own technical system to handle and validate transactions. Instead, it uses ethereum’s existing technology. 

In short, chainlink doesn’t have its own blockchain, but instead it uses an existing blockchain. That’s the primary difference between coins and tokens. 

On top of that, chainlink is special, because it’s not developed with the purpose of being a payment method, like bitcoin was. Instead, it’s developed to activate certain features in a blockchain.

Example:

Imagine you’re in a good old-fashioned laundromat, where you need to buy tokens to use the machines. You’ll exchange your Danish kroner for laundromat-tokens and the only feature these tokens have is to activate the washing machines and dryers.

That’s kind of how chainlink tokens work as well.

Instead of a laundromat it’s a blockchain. Instead of laundromat tokens, it’s chainlink tokens. And instead of a washing machine and a dryer, it could be smart contracts and NFT’s .

But it’s also possible to exchange the laundromat-tokens back to regular money, and the same goes for chainlink tokens. When you have a Lunar Bank account, you can get your token’s value paid out directly to your bank account via your phone.
