Chiliz (Binance: $CHZ), the leading digital currency for sports tokenization and world leaders in blockchain-based fan engagement, today announced an integration with Chainlink — a secure decentralized oracle network which enables the development of auto-executing smart contracts based on real-world data and events.
This integration will enable Chiliz to mint Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) for partners on their fan voting and rewards app Socios.com in real time, based on data securely provided by Chainlink’s decentralized oracle network. Additionally, Chiliz will launch and support a Chainlink Price Reference Contract for CHZ/USD to provide accurate on-chain pricing for conversions between $CHZ and USD. This key price feed is secured by an aggregation of seven nodes that each source data from different data-aggregating APIs, ensuring the highest reliability for CHZ token conversions.
Platform partners already include major football clubs FC Barcelona, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Atlético de Madrid, Galatasaray, A.S. Roma, CA Independiente, and back-to-back Dota 2 esports champions OG. Chiliz is targeting 50 IPs by the end of 2020 from sports, esports, and the entertainment industry.
Thanks to this integration, Chiliz can create dynamic NFTs that are responsive to real world, real time sporting events and mint limited availability collectible tokens to commemorate them. For example — the minting of a limited amount of tokens when a soccer player scores a hat-trick during a game.
In early February, Chiliz made their first major move into branded collectibles by announcing a partnership with blockchain ecosystem developer Enjin to mint Ethereum-based collectibles for partners on Socios.com.
Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO & Founder of Chiliz & Socios.com said: “NFTs will be key to expanding the utility of $CHZ in 2020 and beyond.
“We’ve already got an amazing roster of partners and will be adding many more as the year progresses, creating multiple opportunities to mint limited-edition licensed collectibles.
“The Chainlink integration enables us to be responsive to real world sporting events in real time, allowing us to mint limited availability NFTs to commemorate moments that can’t be predicted or recreated, giving these tokens real collectors value.”
Chiliz ($CHZ) is a digital currency for sports and entertainment platforms.
