What is Tellor?
Tellor is a decentralized oracle protocol that incentivizes an open, permissionless network of data reporting and data validation, ensuring that data can be provided by anyone and checked by everyone.
How does Tellor work?
Tellor wants to solve the problem of lack of a secure and decentralized data supply for DeFi applications on Ethereum by becoming a data-bank. Tellor is a data bank where miners compete to add data points to the Tellor platform in exchange for a reward of “Tributes” or TRB.
The platform will use a multi-layer verification system and a reward incentive mechanism to ensure that all Oracles provide reliable and verifiable off-chain information. Summary: Users will send data to Oracle (eg price of ETH/BTC or ETH/BTC,...) and pay fees in TRB —> Miners make requests of that data, stake 1000 TRB and have a chance to receive rewards.
