The Associated Press (AP), the world’s most trusted news agency, will distribute race calls to Everipedia, a market leading blockchain knowledge company, which will publish them cryptographically on the blockchain through a new oracle product that is powered by Chainlink infrastructure. AP collects and verifies returns in every county, parish, city and town across the U.S., and this November will declare winners in 7,000 contests.
Everipedia will be offering AP’s race calls in a trusted and transparent manner through the use of oracles. AP will sign the data cryptographically and publish its cryptographic key through Everipedia’s official channels.
“AP is the gold standard in counting the vote and declaring election winners, and we are pleased to work with Everipedia to use our race calls in this innovative way,” said Dwayne Desaulniers, AP director of data licensing.
The “Everipedia OraQle” allows world class organizations to publish cryptographically signed data feeds directly to the blockchain so that they can be aggregated, computed, and used in any smart contract.
“Everipedia’s vision has always been to bring real-world knowledge to the blockchain and our OraQle product, powered by the IQ token, will advance that mission. We’re very excited to see the decentralized finance space leverage the important facts and data we are bringing on-chain.” explained Everipedia Co-Founder and President Sam Kazemian.
