One of the most-requested features of any exchange is more assets and more trading pairs. Today we’re providing access to two additional assets on the Blockchain.com Exchange: Stacks (STX) and Chainlink (LINK).
In January we announced that we’d support Stacks 2.0 and we’re happy to make STX available to Exchange users. One of the interesting things about the Stacks network is its unique connection to Bitcoin. This connection allows developers to build applications and smart contracts that make all funds in the Bitcoin network programmable through the Clarity programming language. Stacks creates a new way (Stacking) for people to earn BTC and has opened up all kinds of Bitcoin DeFi possibilities and progress.
We’re also pleased to offer trading access for Chainlink (LINK) which has become one of the top cryptos by market capitalization over the past year. The protocol aims to solve the issue whereby smart contracts on-chain seek off-chain oracles for price feeds, proof of reserve, and more.
Trading pairs available today are LINK-USDT, LINK-USDC, LINK-USD, STX-USDT, STX-USDC, and STX-USD.
About Chainlink (LINK)
Chainlink is a decentralized oracle network. It aims to serve as a middleware between smart contracts on smart contracting platforms and external data sources, allowing smart contracts to securely access off-chain data feeds.
Through a decentralized network of independent oracle node operators, Chainlink provides a wide range of decentralized services to smart contracts including Price Feeds (financial market data used to power a large portion of the DeFi economy), verifiable randomness (enabling the creation of dynamic NFTs and fair on-chain gaming applications), proof of reserve (providing proofof off-chain collateral that is backing stablecoins and cross-chain tokens), the Keeper Network (transaction automation bots that provide autonomous DevOps services), and more.

About Stacks (STX)
Stacks (formerly Blockstack) provides software for internet ownership, which includes infrastructure and developer tools to power a computing network and ecosystem for decentralized applications (dApps). Its focus is to replace the reliance on centralized cloud service providers and apps that harvest and monetize user information. The Stacks network allows users to directly own digital assets like usernames, domain names, computer programs, etc. On the Stacks blockchain, computing is done on the edges (i.e., client devices), and applications on the platform store data individually and use the blockchain only when necessary.
