Chainlink Weekly Roundup: Degis, Overtime and Potluck Labs

July 16, 2022


Chainlink founder Nazarov: “They’re all seeking to compete on the scalability and the cost efficiency of their system.”

Expanding on Avalanche, Fantom and Optimism

New protocols across the space leverage Chainlink’s oracle networks as they become increasingly cost-efficient.

After peaking in 2021, oracle costs are now declining, allowing blockchain projects to become more scalable and decentralized.

In this week’s roundup:

“Whether they’re more established blockchains or new blockchains, they’re all seeking to compete on the scalability and the cost efficiency of their system,” Chainlink founder Sergey Nazarov said in a recent presentation. “This competition has already led more and more Chainlink oracle networks to become profitable on the blockchains known for their cost efficiency like Polygon or BNB.”

Degis, an all-in-one DeFi protection protocol, integrated Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF) on Avalanche mainnet.

“​​With VRF, our users can now directly verify that Treasury Box winners are selected in a provably fair manner,” said Degis’ founder and CEO Andy.

Treasury Box is a game that gives users a chance to win rewards. To play, users buy lucky tickets with $DEG for the opportunity to win more $DEG. To help ensure that this process is fair, the protocol uses Chainlink’s random number generator that any user can independently audit. 

Chainlink VRF combines unknown block data with the oracle node's private key to generate a random number and a cryptographic proof. The protocol will only accept the random number if it has a valid cryptographic proof. This assures users that Treasury Box winners were not influenced by the oracle, outside entities or Degis’ team.

Overtime Market

Overtime Markets, an on-chain sport Automated Market Maker (AMM), integrated Chainlink oracles on Optimism mainnet.

The AMM can now access Chainlink sports data to provide real-time on-chain odds and results to resolve its sports markets.

 At the moment, the sports data covers the following leagues: 

  • NCAA Men’s Football
  • NFL
  • MLB
  • NBA
  • NCAA Men’s Basketball
  • NHL
  • WNBA
  • MLS
  • EPL
  • Ligue 1
  • Bundesliga
  • La Liga
  • Serie A
  • UEFA Champions League

Overtime wants to disrupt current sport markets platforms as a decentralized platform that doesn't gather personal information or take custody of user funds.

Potluck Labs

NFT incubator Potluck Labs integrated Chainlink Price Feeds and VRF on Avalanche and Fantom mainnets. 

The team integrated Chainlink Price Feeds for pricing conversions because they are hyper-resistant to data manipulation attacks and single points of failure, helping ensure NFT prices reflect accurate market rates. The incubator will also leverage Chainlink VRF to allow artists to launch collections and distribute NFTs in a verifiably random way.

“Integrating Chainlink Price Feeds and VRF for enhanced functionality and security was the next logical leap for Potluck Labs as it continues to scale into a leading NFT incubator available on multiple chains. Chainlink trust-minimized services are helping create more seamless user experiences for projects launching on Potluck Labs and for users purchasing NFTs through the platform,” said True Voodoo, Potluck Labs’ Chief Vision Architect.
