BLOCKLORDS Will Use Chainlink Oracles for Off-Chain Gaming Solutions!


3 years ago

BLOCKLORDS, the first medieval grand strategy game designed around blockchain technology, is collaborating with Chainlink around the goal of deploying new gaming-related use cases that provide users with safer, more functional blockchain games. Leveraging the full potential of Chainlink oracles will enable the transmission of secure data inputs and outputs to and from the various smart contracts used to power BLOCKLORDS. Not only will this improve the game's performance and user experience, but it also enables the creation of new decentralized features that were previously not feasible.

An Epic Journey That is Just Beginning

Having already launched its first game on the NEO and TRON blockchains, Arctic Seascape (the studio behind BLOCKLORDS) is dedicated to building a future where games provide real-world value to dedicated users, while helping to spread mainstream blockchain adoption. With BLOCKLORDS 2.0, the aim is to build a decentralized game with deeper gameplay by incorporating a scalable layer-2 solution that makes it possible to offer free and fast transactions to users, significantly improving their experience.

BLOCKLORDS & Chainlink

Games are about as complicated as it gets when it comes to building dAPPS. Users have to interact with smart contracts, call multiple servers, and play on a game client interface. This means that each user has their own real-time datasets that need to maintained and computed at any given moment.The many sources of inputs and outputs make securing data a crucial part of the process as a discrepancy in the data sent to and from the smart contracts can have significant consequences. With Chainlink oracles, the off-chain data created within BLOCKLORDS can be securely transmitted to and from the various smart contracts that determine battle outcomes, item quality, EXP rewards, resource generation, market trades, and much more!

Transmitting BLOCKLORDS data safely to and from smart contracts

David Johansson, CEO & Creative Director at Arctic Seascape, says “In early iterations of BLOCKLORDS, we wanted to put as much logic as possible on the chain. But we quickly realized that this significantly decreased the user-friendliness of the game. Moving forward we knew we needed to take certain elements out of the smart contracts to improve efficiency but still wanted to keep that data decentralized. Chainlink oracles will allow us to transmit all off-chain data securely, making the user experience much smoother while protecting the economic interests of player assets. Finding the perfect balance between storing data off-chain and on-chain while keeping everything safe and decentralized will pave the way for better blockchain games and unlock an unlimited potential of gameplay possibilities.”

One of many features made possible with Chainlink

“We're thrilled to work with BLOCKLORDS on pioneering a completely new gaming industry using blockchain technology. By providing BLOCKLORDS with secure and reliable off-connection via Chainlink oracles, we're confident that blockchain games will make great strides in user experience and gameplay functionality, while still maintaining the critical property of decentralized security,”stated Daniel Kochis who works on business development for Chainlink.

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. Chainlink is consistently selected as one of the top blockchain technologies by leading independent research firms such as Gartner. It is well known for providing highly secure and reliable oracles to large enterprises (Google, Oracle, and SWIFT) and leading smart contract development teams.
