Weekly Wrap: This Week In Chainlink October 5 - October 11
Announcements and Integrations ?
@renprotocol adopts Chainlink’s Proof of Reserve mechanism to improve the transparency & auditability of its cross-chain assets, starting w/ renBTC, renBCH & renZEC. Eth DeFi dApps can now automate checks on the current collateralization of Ren assets.
@AuctusProject's DeFi options platform @ACOFinance is using Chainlink’s ETH/USD Oracle live on mainnet in its 1st pooled liquidity model for options. It leverages the Black Scholes equation for pricing and uses Chainlink to set the current price of ETH.
DeFi-focused layer-1 platform @Radixdlt is integrating Chainlink oracles to provide its developers w/ high-quality off-chain data. Instead of provisioning complex & time-consuming oracle infrastructure, Radix devs can offload it to the Chainlink Network.
Decentralized liquidity aggregator @orion_protocol is integrating numerous Chainlink Price Feeds. They will serve as reference prices for issuing temporary loans from its decentralized brokerage & performing collateralization checks on outstanding loans.
Decentralized digital advertising platform @AdEx_Network is using & supporting a new Chainlink ADX/USD Price Feed live on mainnet to power its elastic issuance staking model. The oracle sets APY rates dynamically in their loyalty pool based on market data.
AI-focused blockchain @Fetch_ai is using Chainlink’s decentralized gold and silver price feeds live on mainnet. Chainlink's data will settle commodities derivatives contracts on the upcoming @Mettalex DEX built on the http://Fetch.ai Network.
@DarwiniaNetwork's cross-chain enabled game Evolution Land will use ChainlinkVRF to securely and efficiently mint in-game characters with randomly selected gene attributes, fairly distribute NFTs as random rewards for various in-game actions, and more.
@StaFi_Protocol will use Chainlink to provide exchange rates in its new staking derivatives solution rTokens—synthetic tokens representing staked assets. Chainlink oracles ensure that creating, trading & redeeming rTokens is based on fair market pricing.
@CryptoApis is now providing blockchain & crypto market data on-chain through their own official #Chainlink Node. DeFi developers can now access a wide variety of new datasets like volume, market cap & more, w/ origin signing guarantees for added security.
@UniLend_Finance integrates ChainlinkVRF to bring verifiable trustlessness to their sale participant selection. Using Chainlink VRF guarantees fairness and transparency with provably fair on-chain randomness.
The Chainlink Grant Program is making $100,000+ grants available to skilled developers that successfully integrate #Chainlink into new blockchains. We're now accepting proposals for the first grant, Solana, co-sponsored by @solana & @ProjectSerum.
Featured Videos & Educational Pieces ?
In our latest technical blog, we show developers how to implement time delayed smart contract functions using a #Chainlink alarm clock to control a blockchain voting dApp. This feature can be used to facilitate on-chain voting such as in DAO-based projects.
Virtually any asset can be tokenized on-chain & managed in unique programmable ways using smart contracts. In our latest blog, we examine tokenized assets & how Chainlink plays a key role in the minting, collateralizing, trading & pricing of these assets.
Rewatch our live Q&A with TrustSwap CEO, Jeff Kirdeikis. We will be speaking about TrustSwap's recent integration of Chainlink and its use of decentralized oracles to grow the DeFi ecosystem.
