Data on decentralized blockchain protocols is very secure and almost immutable. However, most dapps and smart contracts require information from the real-world to trigger a certain action on the blockchain. Since blockchains cannot access off-chain data, a secure, trustworthy bridge between off-chain and on-chain data is needed. Blockchain oracles serve as bridges between blockchains and outside world and provide smart contracts with external information. Blockchain oracles can be centralized or decentralized and may leverage reputation, voting & other trust models.
