Three Birds, One Stone
Zeus Finance integrated Chainlink Keepers, Price Feeds, and VRF to power its decentralized financial suite.
- Keepers automates rewards distribution within the staking suite,
- Price Feeds help convert prices for accurate fee estimations, and
- VRF supports randomized airdrops of the ZEUS token.
“Chainlink was the obvious choice for us. Chainlink trust-minimized services are the industry standard for DeFi and help make our platform as robust as possible,” said Frank, CEO at Zeus Finance. “Chainlink Price Feeds, Chainlink Keepers, and Chainlink VRF all work in tandem to give our users a consistent and transparent experience.”
The DeFi suite also plans to use Chainlink to support other upcoming features, like automating bonding rewards and randomizing the airdrops of an NFT collection centered on Greek Mythology.
Integrating a Liquidity Hub
KyberSwap integrated Chainlink Price Feeds to facilitate its DeFi and DAO operations.
Kyber Network integrated the price feeds on Arbitrum, Avalanche, BNB Chain, Ethereum, Optimism, and Polygon. This will help ensure KyberSwap rewards are reliably distributed to KyberDAO members.
“Chainlink Price Feeds underpin the DeFi economy with highly secure, reliable, and decentralized market data, including on KyberDAO, where they facilitate our distribution of rewards. We’re excited to continue using Chainlink to support developers, traders, and liquidity providers across the multi-chain DeFi ecosystem,” said Victor Tran, CEO of Kyber Network.
Here’s how KyberSwap is integrating Chainlink Price Feeds:
- Chainlink provides KNC price data to DeFi lending platforms. This enables lending platforms like QiDAO, Benqi, and Aave to support $KNC as a collateral type.
- KyberDAO is using the KNC/USD and KNC/ETH Price Feeds.
- Kyber is running a Chainlink node to help secure their oracle network.
Iron Bank integrated Chainlink Price Feeds on Optimism.
The decentralized lending platform recently launched on Optimism, a low-cost Ethereum layer-two blockchain. This integration will help ensure that users’ collateralization ratios are based on accurate, tamper-proof market data.
“To ensure accurate pricing, we’re using Chainlink Price Feeds. As one of the industry’s leading and most well-known market data solution providers, they have helped secure tens of billions of dollars in value for leading DeFi protocols across multiple chains,” the Iron Bank team said on their blog.
