What Is Tellor (TRB)?

Tellor claims to be a transparent, decentralized, and permissionless oracle protocol for smart contracts. The protocol’s purpose is to collect any data on demand. Yet, for many crypto gazers, words like permissionless, Oracle, etc., may seem alien. So, what do they stand for?

Permissionless, also called trustless, means it doesn’t require permission to participate. Oracle, on the other hand, refers to the bridge between the blockchain and the real world. Oracle connects smart contracts with the real world to collect off-chain data for on-chain smart contracts.
