Chainlink Functions Now Live On Base

Last year, Chainlink announced the beta launch of Chainlink Functions, a serverless, self-serve web3 development platform that seamlessly delivers web2 data onchain. During a presentation at ETHDenver, Chainlink Labs Product Lead Bryan Jowers called the occasion “web3’s serverless moment,” as Functions gives developers tools for the industry to truly take off.

Today, Functions went live on Base, a fast, scalable, developer-friendly L2 incubated by Coinbase and secured by Ethereum. Base joined Chainlink SCALE soon after launching last year to accelerate the growth of its ecosystem by giving developers low-cost access to Chainlink’s industry-standard infrastructure.

Last August, Base integrated Chainlink Price Feeds to enable externally connected DeFi applications. In September, Chainlink’s Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP) went live on Base, unlocking decentralized applications that can securely transmit digital assets along with data and messages between distinct blockchain networks.

Functions leverages Chainlink’s time-tested oracle network, which has enabled more than $10.5 trillion in transaction value, to give developers access to trust-minimized compute infrastructure that allows them to fetch data from APIs and perform custom computation.

“Base is continuing to show itself as a fast performing and sophisticated L2 that is empowering developers to build at scale in the blockchain ecosystem,” said Thodoris Karakostas, Head of Blockchain Partnerships at Chainlink Labs. “Functions will help give developers on Base increased maneuverability, provided to them by Chainlink’s highly secure infrastructure.”

During a fireside chat with Chainlink Labs’ Niki Ariyasinghe at last year’s ETHDenver, Base lead Jesse Pollak underscored Chainlink’s critical role in allowing Base developers to cultivate real-world utility that attracts the next billion users to web3. Ariyasinghe also outlined high expectations for what developers will build on Base with Functions, which “goes to the heart of connecting web2 to web3.”  

Tom Vieira, Head of Product at Base, echoed this outlook in today’s announcement. “We’re excited to see Chainlink Functions go live on Base, enhancing developer capabilities and showcasing the continued integration of Chainlink’s trusted technology.” 

Developers can get started with Functions by accessing the Functions documentation, experimenting with the Chainlink Functions Playground, and creating a subscription.
