Chainlink Unveils Keepers and VRF into the Avalanche Primary Network

Chainlink, a blockchain oracle platform, has unveiled two of its services on the Avalanche Primary Network. The Chainlink Keepers and the Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF) are integrated into the Avalanche subnet.

This development adds to the long line of strategic events that have happened recently within the Chainlink ecosystem. Chainlink recently unveiled Chainlink 2.0 and a roadmap to see how the network will achieve high scalability.

Chainlink reveals Keepers and VRF on the Avalanche subnet

The Chainlink team noted that the integration of the service on Avalanche was done to support developers within the ecosystem. Through Chainlink Keepers, developers will be able to automate how smart contracts work while focusing on decentralization.

The Chainlink VRF also generates a random number generator (RNG) which is adopted by several decentralized applications (DApps). The integration will be especially beneficial for the DApps that focus on randomness.

Ava Labs Founder and CEO Emin Gun Sirer noted that the integration of this service is a significant milestone that would support those building applications on the Avalanche network. Avalanche is an “Ethereum killer” because it offers low gas fees and supports those who want to build on a scalable network.

Sirer said the integration would improve the experience for both users and developers. Furthermore, he said that it would also improve the functionalities and designs of the network within the DApps.

“The Avalanche community is full of tireless developers, and their ability to rapidly build and ship applications at scale just got easier,” the announcement added. Chainlink co-founder Sergey Nazarov also got involved in this strategic development.

Nazarov said the integration would help developers build smart contract applications with end-to-end automation. These smart contracts would adopt a verified RNG for each application built within the network.

In February of this year, Chainlink released the second upgrade of its VRF feature. The feature allowed the Chainlink platform to offer random numbers, and it represents cryptographic proof that the number was realized after integrating block data and the oracle’s private key.

In June, Chainlink introduced a price feed feature on the Solana network. The feature allows developers within the Solana network to access various price feeds, making their applications easier to use. The price feeds support BTC/USD, ETH/USD and USDC/USD.

Chainlink introduces Chainlink 2.0

One of the recent developments within the Chainlink ecosystem is that it allows for throughput Chain link 2.0. Staking is a highly requested feature as it gives investors the opportunity to increase the size of their portfolios despite the development of the cryptocurrency market.

LINK recently experienced a price surge after the team revealed staking. Chainlink is the largest oracle network, and the adoption of staking could allow the network to see notable growth in the coming months.

Chainlink’s announcement states that through staking, the network could “enable ecosystem participants, including node operators and community members, to increase the security guarantees and user assurances of oracle services by supporting them with staking LINK tokens.”

By supporting LINK staking, nodes will also be able to get jobs and earn fees on the network. The Chainlink ecosystem will also benefit from the “increase in crypto security and user assurances.”

Chainlink’s new roadmap also introduced Proof of Reserves (PoR). PoR is a system that offers better protection to user funds within the network. POR allows easy auditing of the company’s cryptocurrency holdings using an automated process supported by smart contracts and oracles.
