In February, Chainlink announced 34 new integrations alongside the launch of Chainlink Off-Chain Reporting (OCR), while new dApps and gaming platforms integrated Chainlink VRF (Verifiable Randomness Function) to generate non-fungible tokens as NFTs hit mainstream news. February was action-packed, but March was even more prolific, with Chainlink announcing 39 new integrations.
Co-Founder of SmartContent and Chainlink Today contributor @ChainLinkGod said March marked a milestone in “significant diversity of integrations” across the Chainlink ecosystem, including the creation of provably rare NFTs for projects like Illuvium and Ether Cards, new data provider-run oracle nodes like The Rundown and SportMonks, secure price feeds for DeFi protocols like Rari Capital and SushiSwap, and even an integration with the decentralized storage network Filecoin.
“Thanks to the scalability improvements provided by OCR and an increased selection of oracle services like VRF, the pace of integrations is seriously beginning to ramp up quickly and it’s very exciting to see the Chainlink Network continuing to scale to meet the needs of the smart contract economy,” he said.

There is now a total of 475 integrations in the Chainlink Ecosystem, including:
204 DeFi projects
60 node operators
40 data providers
Yesterday, we published a feature about one of Chainlink’s March integrations, Jarvis Network, a DAO-owned set of protocols on Ethereum for universalizing and “uberizing” financial products and markets. Jarvis’ CEO, Pascal Tallarida, said OCR – which enables up to a 90% reduction in gas consumption – substantially accelerated Jarvis’ go-to-market strategy: “OCR ultimately allowed half of our small team to work on the core of our project instead of focusing on building our own system.”
Here’s a complete list of March’s integrations, which may foretell an even more expansive April.
