Planetarium Plans Integration with Leading Oracle Solution Chainlink

We are excited to announce our collaboration with Chainlink, a leading oracle solution linking smart contracts with the real world.

Chainlink is a decentralized oracle network using smart contracts for safe access to the off-chain data feed, web API, and existing online bank payment system. It recently introduced Verifiable Random Function(VRF) for on-chain operation for game developers, providing randomness that is both verifiable and fair in their decentralized applications at low cost.

VRF on Chainlink

Planetarium is an open-source gaming platform set to transform the longevity and the profit model of games. By utilizing Libplanet, a library for distributed P2P gaming network, developers can create and deploy a massively-multiplayer online world without centralized servers.

Nine Chronicles is the first reference game backed by Libplanet, and it is open-sourced and 100% decentralized. All in-game actions from crafting an item to complex battles take place fully on-chain, and gamers participate as miners of the blockchain to form a global decentralized network that cannot be shut down.

Nine Chronicles, the First Open Sourced, Decentralized MMORPG

Through this partnership with Chainlink, Planetarium plans to integrate off-chain data feed and bridging technology which could enable Libplanet-based blockchain networks to exchange information with existing blockchain networks through smart contracts.

Applications can include, but are not limited to:

  • Accessing global raid and event progress from any Libplanet-based games.

The initial implementations will be applied to the Nine Chronicles network, which has 70,000 players on the waitlist and will be launching its mainnet in October.

Also, we are exploring Chainlink’s VRF (Verifiable Random Function) to create randomized NFTs that can be imported into Libplanet-based networks, which will allow studios to mint and sell items with random properties on the Ethereum network. Later, players can import these items to the specific mainnet to enjoy fully decentralized gaming. These items, though created from a separate network, will still retain provable fairness due to Chainlink’s tamper-proof RNG.

These integrations will enable Planetarium to tap into the vast possibilities that Chainlink’s ecosystem has to offer. We look forward to investigating further opportunities to connect Libplanet-based networks with Chainlink’s oracle technology.

About Chainlink

Chainlink is a decentralized oracle network that enables smart contracts to securely access off-chain data feeds, web APIs, and traditional bank payments. It is well known for providing highly secure and reliable oracles to large enterprises (Google, Oracle, and SWIFT) and leading smart contract development teams such as Polkadot/Substrate, Synthetix, Loopring, Aave, OpenLaw, Conflux, and many others.

About Planetarium

Planetarium is a blockchain company pioneering the ecosystem for community-powered online games. Planetarium’s Libplanet technology equips developers with powerful tools to create fully decentralized, cross-platform blockchain games that can live forever on networks powered by the players. The team is also developing Nine Chronicles, an open source, decentralized role-playing game set to launch in 2020.
