Chainlink Price Feeds, the most widely used decentralized price oracles in DeFi, are now live on the Avalanche testnet, giving Avalanche developers seamless access to high-quality, tamper-proof price reference data across a variety of asset classes, including cryptocurrencies, foreign exchange rates, stablecoins, commodities, and numerous other data types.
The integration was made possible by a Chainlink Community Grant awarded to Protofire — a leading development workshop and Avalanche validator — who, beyond this initial testnet launch, will also adapt, test, and implement Chainlink Oracles natively into the Avalanche mainnet.
The Chainlink Price Feeds currently available on Avalanche testnet include AVAX/USD, LINK/USD, ETH/USD, LINK/ETH, BTC/ETH, and USDT/USD, with plans to continually roll out new ones to meet ecosystem demand. As the most time-tested and fully-featured oracle infrastructure, developers building externally-connected DeFi applications on Avalanche can trust Chainlink Price Feeds to be accurate and reliable.
Not only does Chainlink save development teams considerable time and resources getting their products to market, but it mitigates oracle infrastructure risk by relying on pre-built oracle solutions that are battle-hardened and proven to secure billions of dollars in value for leading DeFi applications.
We encourage Avalanche ecosystem developers to start testing and building today using the Chainlink developer documentation.
