We’re excited to announce that Blue Kraken Online is officially joining the Chainlink BUILD program. As a part of BUILD, we aim to accelerate ecosystem growth and the long-term adoption of play-and-earn gaming by gaining enhanced access to Chainlink’s industry-leading oracle services and technical support, as well as incentivizing greater cryptoeconomic security, in exchange for a commitment to provide network fees and other benefits to the Chainlink community and service providers, including stakers.

Blue Kraken Online has long been an active participant and believer in Chainlink. Our participation in BUILD provides priority support from the Chainlink ecosystem and stronger incentive alignment between the Chainlink and Blue Kraken Online communities.

We’re confident that through enhanced support, secure off-chain services, and the backing of Chainlink’s vibrant community, we can accelerate awareness of Blue Kraken Online and realize the adoption of an economically sustainable play-and-earn game.

Blue Kraken Online: A Sustainable Play-and-Earn Game

Blue Kraken Online’s mission is to create a play-and-earn game that is truly economically sustainable, delivering evidence that inflation-proof game economies are feasible, and thereby banish the biggest obstacle for non-crypto gamers to mass adopt crypto gaming. As players fight, loot, craft, and dance in Blue Kraken Online’s open-world pixel art game, they earn rewards that are either NFTs (rare & can become SBTs) or tokens.

Blue Kraken Online’s fast-paced action, mix of novel character classes like the Timetraveler, Wolfpack or the Shark-Man-Man-Shark with yet unseen skills, and open-world design make it ripe for exploration. As players earn rewards through the game, they can level up their unique character class by gathering experience and crafting stronger items and equipment. Players can also advance a broad range of skills — from fighting to dancing — and earn rewards while getting to the next skill level.

Why We Joined Chainlink BUILD

Blue Kraken Online joined BUILD to maximize the benefits of security and reliability that Chainlink’s oracle infrastructure provides. As part of BUILD, Blue Kraken Online will receive key benefits, including access to and integration of secure, verifiable randomness through Chainlink VRF, seamless automation of critical on-chain functions through Chainlink Automation, and access to new Chainlink product alpha and beta releases, among other benefits.

In exchange for these services, Blue Kraken Online will make a percentage of its native token supply available to Chainlink service providers, including stakers, over time. These mutually aligned economic incentives enable both communities to support one another.

“We already incorporated some of Chainlink’s features into our code on testnets even before we were in contact with Chainlink Labs and were immediately blown away by how well everything works and how well documented everything is. Now that we are joining the BUILD program we feel like getting super powers! The access to industry-standard oracle services and the opportunity to test, plan and build for the newest upcoming technology via early access combined with the technical support is going to give us wings. The BUILD program will empower us to build the on-chain elements of Blue Kraken Online with time-tested oracle services that will serve as the foundation for seamless gameplay and ecosystem interoperability. We look forward to continuing our collaboration together and we welcome the passionate Chainlink community into the Blue Kraken Online ecosystem.” — Nicolas Wind, Co-founder, CEO and Lead Developer at Blue Kraken Online.
