User Checklists

These checklists are designed to guide you through the necessary preparations & processes for using the Tellor oracle.
Find below 2 checklists:
*Development - actions for the security of your code / integration.
*Maintenance - actions to help make sure the data flowing into your contracts is properly checked & monitored.

Development Checklist

Communicate what oracle data is needed, the desired frequency, & how the feeds will be funded
This helps the Tellor team & reporters to better understand your needs. Feel free to ask for help & advice! This can be done by making an issue in the dataSpecs repo, or by reaching out in the Tellor discord.
Build in a delay to allow time for disputes on bad values
Tellor is an open & permissionless oracle, which means a reporter can submit any value at any time if they are willing to forfeit their staked TRB tokens. by delaying use of a value, or by delaying the finality of functions that use the latest Tellor value, you can prevent the use of inaccurate data. This repo is a great reference for integrating Tellor.
Ensure that functions do not use old Tellor values
In the event where a Tellor value is disputed, the disputed value is removed & previous values remain. Prevent potential attackers from going back in time to find a desired value with a check in your contracts. This repo is a great reference for integrating Tellor.
Share code with the Tellor team for security review
This step ensures the security of your code & allows the Tellor team to provide you with valuable feedback.

Maintenance Checklist

Hold TRB for disputes
This ensures that you are ready to dispute any incorrect values that may occur in the oracle data feed.
Hold TRB for staking reporters (as insurance)
In the event of a critical situation, this allows you to act as the reporter of last resort for your protocol.
Monitor the data
Monitoring clients like the Disputable Values Monitor / Auto-Disputer can be found in the Tellor github.
Become Familiar w/ Telliot
Telliot is currently the standard open-source tool for reporting and interacting with Tellor's oracle network.
Communicate Questions/Concerns
To address your specific monitoring needs, it is important to communicate any questions or concerns that arise with the Tellor team and they’ll be happy to address them all.
Remember: Communication and careful planning are key to a successful integration!
