Chainlink oracles are now integrated into Axie Infinity playground
By Inkarias - 2020-11-16
Chainlink’s team recently shared its new partnership with a well-known crypto game in the market: Axie Infinity. The addition of Chainlink features such as decentralized price feeds and verifiable randomness function introduce provably fair random elements into the Axie universe while ensuring a high-standard for the users. In short, Axie is a crypto game where creatures that love to battle, build and hunt for treasure in a full-online blockchain-based game. In the Axie universe, every player can search, gather and collect a great number of different Axies to use them across an entire ecosystem.
Chainlink choice and associated added-value for the network
After launching its own governance and fee sharing token, AXS will then be using chainlink price feeds/sources, switching from a fully centralized server-managed feature to the whole set offered by Chainlink. Thus Axie will benefit from a 100% uptime for marketplace’s all-important ETH/USD price feed and the network in general. The second feature introduced from Chainlink is VRF, highly secure source of randomness that is permissionless and auditable on-chain by all users and which constitute a solid protocol to support and manage Axie needs. VRF also brings a new layer of security with the cryptographic proof that all random elements cannot be manipulated by a third-party entity.
As the Axie’s team previously shared regarding this information:
We’ll be using Chainlink VRF for the generation of Origin Axies from Axie Origin Coins (AOC). The number of Origin Axies in the game is capped at 4088. Each time 5 AOC are burned, an Origin Axie is born with a chance of possessing Mystic parts. The chance of an Axie possessing Mystic parts when they’re born from AOC will soon rely on the VRF from chainlink
