The goal of Kenshi Oracle Network is to enable developers to build their oracles using the technologies they know, while taking care of everything else from event sourcing to data delivery.
To allow maximum flexibility, we require you to create the logic part of your oracle and host it on your own infrastructure. The logic part needs to implement the following:
  1. POST: HTTP endpoint accepting POST requests.
  2. Request Body: Events are sent to this endpoint for processing. The events are in JSON format.
  3. Response Code: You must return a HTTP success code, otherwise the Kenshi event dispatcher will attempt retries.
  4. Response Body: You must respond with the instructions on how to process the event and what data should be sent to your smart contract on the blockchain. Respone body should be JSON formatted.
You are free to use the technology of your choice to implement the above protocol.
