OVR.ai is announcing a live and ongoing integration with Chainlink, the marketing-leading decentralized oracle network that provides smart contracts with secure and reliable off-chain data and computation. The current integration involves the use of Chainlink Verifiable Randomness Function (VRF) to fairly and transparently select a special grant fund winner from the list of participants taking part in the upcoming OVRLand Treasure Hunt. Additionally, the OVR team plans to leverage Chainlink oracles throughout the platform to connect the physical world to OVRLand’s digital metaverse, enabling a virtual experience that’s impacted by the real world.
OVR is a decentralized platform for geolocalized Augmented Reality (AR) / Virtual Reality (VR) experiences, with a vision to merge the physical and the virtual world through AR. OVR allows users to build, host, and visualize AR/VR experiences that are customized to specific geographic locations.
This is accomplished by OVR dividing the digital world into 300 sqm hexagons called OVRLands, which each represent actual physical geographic locations. Each OVRLand is tokenized using the ERC-721 NFT standard on the Ethereum blockchain. The owner of each OVRLand NFT can assign the AR visual experience for the specific geographic location that their NFT represents.
But what if you could embed decentralized logic into OVRLand NFTs? What if you could take off-chain/geographic data and use it on the blockchain to supercharge interactions within the OVR decentralized metaverse?
Here is where Chainlink comes to play, allowing OVR to securely and reliably connect real-world events to blockchains in order to trigger smart contract executions. Data such as randomness, geolocation, weather, and more can all be fetched from off-chain sources and supplied on-chain via Chainlink-powered decentralized oracle networks.
The most immediate use case for OVR is leveraging randomness to determine metaverse events.
