Chainlink brings Keepers and VRF to the Avalanche blockchain

Blockchain oracle platform Chainlink (LINK) launched two of its services, Chainlink Keepers and Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF), and integrated them into the Avalanche Primary Network, a special subnet within the Avalanche platform.

In the announcement sent to Cointelegraph on Thursday, the Chainlink team emphasized that the integration with Avalanche is to support developers within the platform. Chainlink Keepers will allow developers to automate smart contract functions in a decentralized manner. On the other hand, Chainlink VRF will provide a random number generator (RNG) that can be used in many decentralized applications (DApps) that require randomness.

Emin Gün Sirer, the founder and CEO of Ava Labs, expressed his belief that the integration is a major milestone for those building in Avalanche. According to Sirer, this will “simplify both the developer and user experience.” Apart from that, the Avalanche manager noted that this will also improve the functionalities and designs within DApps. He said that:

“The Avalanche community is filled with tireless developers, and their ability to rapidly build and ship applications at scale just got easier.”

Chainlink co-founder Sergey Nazarov also commented on the new development. He explained that the integration will allow developers to create smart contract apps with end-to-end automation and apply a verified RNG to any application within the platform.

Back in February, Chainlink launched the second version of its VRF feature. With the feature, the Chainlink platform delivers random numbers and presents cryptographic proof that the number was determined by combining block data and an oracle’s private key.

In early June, Chainlink also rolled out its price feeds feature on the Solana (SOL) blockchain. This feature allows developers within the Solana platform to use the BTC/USD, ETH/USD and USDC/USD price feeds in their applications.
