  • Chainlink hosts some of the most valuable NFT collections

Metalink, a platform building the premier NFT social app for NFT communities and collectors, has integrated Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF) on Ethereum Mainnet to provide cryptographic randomness to platform giveaways, Bankless Times learned from a press release.

Tamper-proof randomness

Chainlink VRF equips smart contract apps with tamper-proof randomness, helping make sure that usres of the NFT social app can verify giveaway competitions independently.

Jake Udell, CEO and Founder of Metalink commented:

Metalink’s number-one priority is to provide our communities with a unique and safe NFT social platform. With Chainlink VRF, our collectors can enter giveaways in a single click, while also knowing we’re using a technology that prioritizes fairness and transparency to determine winners.

Chainlink VRF is an obvious solution to the problems NFT projects face when conducting raffles. We’ve incorporated Chainlink VRF into Metalink for each collection we support so that teams have easy access to verifiable randomness to conduct provably random giveaways.

Tomasz Wojewoda, Head of Global Sales at Chainlink Labs added:

We’re excited that the Metalink team chose to integrate Chainlink VRF for a secure source of randomness as Metalink hosts a large and growing collection of novel NFTs. Chainlink VRF will help ensure that each giveaway conducted on Metalink is both auditable and tamper-proof, bringing enhanced transparency to its community members.

Chainlink VRF ensures access without fear of manipulation

Access to collections by Metalink’s community is enabled by Chainlink VRF without any fear of manipulation or preferential treatment. Chainlink hosts some of the most valuable NFT collections. Its first 3,000 collectors accounted for more than $350 million of OpenSea’s $3.65 billion revenue last August, corresponding to just over 9%.

The integration of Chainlink VRF will premiere with a giveaway for Deadfellaz collectors. There will be a series of weekly Deadfellaz giveaways, the first of which is three pairs of custom designed Nike Air Force Ones by Sekure D. His work has been featured in the National Gallery of Victoria and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Deadfellaz founder Betty said:

We are thrilled to be able to provide our community with a fair and transparent way to enter giveaways and contests via Metalink’s integration of Chainlink VRF. Community safety is a priority for us at Deadfellaz, which is why we are so enthusiastic about the platform Metalink has developed and look forward to the Horde enjoying their dedicated Metalink server.
