Potluck Labs Integrates Chainlink Price Feeds and VRF To Support Enhanced NFT Mints

NFT incubator Potluck Labs - a subsidiary of Potluck Protocol — is excited to announce that it has integrated Chainlink Price Feeds and VRF on the Avalanche and Fantom mainnets.

Potluck Labs is initially referencing the AVAX/USD Price Feed on Avalanche and the FTM/USD Price Feed on Fantom to help NFT buyers make informed decisions by displaying accurate price conversions. In addition, Potluck Labs has integrated Chainlink VRF to help ensure NFT projects launching on the platform have full access to a source of tamper-proof randomness, giving them the ability to fairly distribute rare NFTs to their community members in a seamless manner.

Potluck Labs was launched by Potluck Protocol in December 2021. Since that time, Potluck Labs has seen over 30 unique NFT mints, including from projects such as Astrokids, Bot Squad Chickens, and Swol Chads. A unique aspect of the NFT incubator is that wallets holding NFTs from Potluck Labs-approved collections gain a small number of LABS — Potluck Labs’ native token — on a second-by-second basis. Currently, Potluck Labs is live across Avalanche, Fantom, and Polygon, though there are plans to expand to additional blockchains in the future.

The Potluck Labs team decided to integrate Chainlink Price Feeds for pricing conversions because they are hyper-resistant to data manipulation attacks and single points of failure, helping ensure NFT prices reflect globally accurate fair market rates with a high level of reliability.

Additionally, being an NFT incubator, one of the requests coming from users was that they needed a verifiably random way to distribute rare NFTs when launching collections on Potluck Labs. Thus, we decided to integrate Chainlink VRF because it is the fairest, most transparent randomness solution available in the blockchain space.

Chainlink VRF works by combining block data that is still unknown when the request is made with the oracle node’s pre-committed private key to generate both a random number and a cryptographic proof. The Potluck Labs smart contract will only accept the random number input if it has a valid cryptographic proof, and the cryptographic proof can only be generated if the VRF process is tamper-proof. This helps provide users with automated and publicly verifiable proof directly on-chain that NFT drops using Chainlink VRF for randomness are provably fair.

“Integrating Chainlink Price Feeds and VRF for enhanced functionality and security was the next logical leap for Potluck Labs as it continues to scale into a leading NFT incubator available on multiple chains. Chainlink trust-minimized services are helping create more seamless user experiences both for projects launching on Potluck Labs and for users purchasing NFTs through the platform,” stated True Voodoo, Chief Vision Architect at Potluck Labs.
