About LINK:
Chainlink (LINK) is a decentralized oracle network that connects smart contracts on blockchains with other networks and the real world. This allows developers to incorporate data and conditions from the outside world into their smart contracts. Chainlink is built on Ethereum and supported by its own native token, LINK.

About USDC:
USD Coin (USDC) is a stablecoin pegged to the US dollar developed by the Centre consortium. It is issued and maintained by a network of Centre’s regulated partners, who guarantee its stability by keeping an equivalent amount of USD in their reserves.

About OMG:
The OMG Network (OMG) previously known as OmiseGO, is a payment system built on top of Ethereum that supports multiple digital assets. It allows users to access, manage and transact with Ethereum-based digital assets more efficiently without sacrificing the blockchain’s security benefits. The network’s native token is OMG.
