Tellor is a permissionless oracle protocol that powers apps on smart contract platforms like Ethereum, Polygon, and Algorand. It is a transparent and permissionless way for smart contracts to easily get any data whenever they need it.
Tellor’s oracle works by incentivizing data reporters to put valid data on-chain while also disincentivizing bad reports via disputes and slashing. Becoming a reporter requires no verification process i.e. permissionless. Anyone anywhere in the world can be a reporter using open-source software, a unique characteristic among blockchain oracles.
