DeFi Warrior Integrates Chainlink Price Feeds to Help Boost Character Strength in its DeFi game
We’re excited to announce that DeFi Warrior — a crypto character and crypto galaxy game — has integrated Chainlink Price Feeds on the Binance Smart Chain mainnet. By integrating the industry-leading decentralized oracle network, DeFi Warrior now has access to high-quality, tamper-proof price feeds needed to boost character strength. This will help provide our users with strong assurances that character stats and battles are fair and in accordance with real-time global markets.
In DeFi Warrior, each Warrior has special stats referred to as a Buff Chart. Essentially, the Buff Chart is part of determining the Warrior’s strength. Each DeFi warrior character represents a real crypto and its strength in battle is based on price changes within 4-hour time periods as supplied by Chainlink..
In other words, a Warrior’s strength is based on price changes in the market. For example, say there are 2 characters, BTC and ETH. Within a 4 hour candlestick, the BTC price changes 10% and the ETH price changes 5%. Then, the BTC character will have stronger hitting powers in comparison to ETH during a battle.
We chose Chainlink as our go-to oracle solution because its infrastructure is seamless to integrate and time-tested in production. Chainlink already helps secure leading DeFi protocols responsible for tens of billions of dollars in smart contract value, maintaining robust security and high availability even amidst unexpected events, such as exchange downtime, flash crashes, and data manipulation attacks via flash loans.
DeFi Warrior is a blockchain-based game inspired by the cryptocurrency economy. In DeFi Warrior, each blockchain is a planet and each crypto is a Warrior. The planet is the place where Warriors build their coin mining factory, as well as fight against bosses or enemies for rewards. Such game dynamics aim to achieve two essential goals: bring the world of crypto to the masses through gaming and pique the curiosity of both gamers and crypto users.
Each Warrior is an NFT that represents a real crypto. By owning Warriors, players can participate in game modes, including farming, mining, player vs player battles, and championships. The Warrior can also be leveled up to maximize the benefit for Warrior owners. The Warrior’s strength is driven in part by the movement of cryptocurrency prices, which will make the battles more dramatic than ever.
In order to secure the boosting of character strength within our DeFi game, we needed access to fresh asset prices that are supplied directly on-chain in a highly reliable manner. Fair market asset prices should reflect a volume-weighted average from all trading environments. Thus, we needed to make use of an oracle to fetch aggregated price data off-chain and deliver it on-chain to be consumed by our application.
After reviewing various oracle solutions, we integrated Chainlink Price Feeds because they provide a multitude of critical features such as:
- High-Quality Data — Chainlink Price Feeds source data from numerous premium data aggregators, helping ensure price data that’s aggregated from hundreds of exchanges, weighted by volume, and cleaned of outliers and wash trading. Chainlink’s data aggregation model helps generate accurate global market prices that are inherently resistant to inaccuracies or manipulation of any single or small set of exchanges.
- Secure Node Operators — Chainlink Price Feeds are secured by independent, security-reviewed, and Sybil-resistant oracle nodes run by leading blockchain DevOps teams, data providers, and traditional enterprises with a strong track record of reliability, even during high gas prices and infrastructure outages.
- Decentralized Network — Chainlink Price Feeds are decentralized at the data source, oracle node, and oracle network levels, generating strong protections against downtime and tampering by the data provider or the oracle network.
- Reputation System — Chainlink provides a robust reputation framework and set of on-chain monitoring tools that allow users to independently verify the historical and real-time performance of node operators and oracle networks.
“Chainlink Price Feeds offer us highly secure, reliable, and accurate price data that we can use to assign character strength in our ecosystem, as well as to easily calculate the TVL in our staking contracts. We also plan to apply the Chainlink Price Feeds solution to help power our native cross-chain DEX and DeFi platform in the future.” — Mark Dao, Founder DeFi Warrior.
