Challenges I ran into

While building PredictFlow, I encountered a few challenges that helped me learn and grow as a developer:

Importing external libraries: Hardhat does not support imports via HTTPS, which initially caused issues when attempting to import the Gelato library. I resolved this by downloading the required contracts and importing them locally.

Smart contract interaction: Understanding the interaction between multiple smart contracts and off-chain sources, such as API3 and Gelato, required thorough research and experimentation. By studying the documentation and engaging with the developer community, I was able to implement the necessary interactions between the contracts.

Gas optimization: As with any blockchain-based application, managing gas costs was a crucial aspect to ensure a cost-effective solution for users. I spent time optimizing smart contract functions and evaluating the trade-offs between different implementation approaches to strike a balance between gas efficiency and functionality.

Testing and debugging: Writing tests for the smart contracts and addressing edge cases proved challenging at times. I overcame these issues by diligently testing each function, implementing best practices, and seeking feedback from peers to ensure the robustness of the smart contracts.

By persistently working through these challenges, I gained valuable insights into blockchain development
