Blockchain platform GamerHash said it is integrating Chainlink data feeds for fair pricing, according to a partnership announced Tuesday.
The gaming-focused platform is the latest firm to onboard Chainlink’s oracles services. Its users, the announcement said, can share their idle CPU/GPU for mining crypto or earning crypto rewards through playing games. GamerHash said its decision comes after Chainlink’s “proven” ability to secure “over a billion dollars in value in DeFi as the most widely used oracle.”Chainlink’s verifiable pricing to benefit gamers

This is touted as the “first integration” (of verifiable price feeds) towards a much larger goal of “seeding NFT adoption in the mainstream gaming community.”
GamerHash said gamers are intimately familiar with interacting and trading valuable digital assets — presumably referring to the wide array of in-game currencies and digital tokens available on major games like FortNite. This makes them a “prime target” for digital currency usage and sparking “another wave” of blockchain adoption.Snapshot of the GamerHash studio. Image: Medium
The firm said its non-fungible token (NFT) rewards will be rolled out to over 480,000 users across 125 countries, with Chainlink’s Verifiable Random Function (VRF) used to distribute those randomized in-game rewards. Another use case is to mint “rare” NFTs, which can then be bought and sold on the GamerHash Marketplace.
