    May 2021 Recap: Chainlink Announces 55 Integrations, LaMelo Ball Dynamic NFTs, Two-Year Mainnet Anniversary

    Building on April’s momentum, May was a record-breaking month for Chainlink. The Chainlink ecosystem added 55 new integrations, including the forthcoming launch of NBA star LaMelo Ball’s dynamic NFT collection in collaboration with Ether Cards. With Ether Cards and Chainlink, Ball will become the first professional athlete to commemorate career achievements through dynamic NFTs that create new, exclusive value for fans.

    Chainlink also awarded a Chainlink Community Grant to Green World Campaign, whose hybrid smart contract application, AIRS, uses satellite data to automatically dispense tokenized regenerative carbon assets to those practicing regenerative agriculture.

    Chainlink Community Grant recipient TheLinkMarine said he is especially enthusiastic about Green World Campaign integrating Chainlink to scale critical environmental initiatives.

    “The rate of integrations this month was just astounding, with 55 announced in May alone. As always, every integration is exciting to learn about, but I’m particularly impressed by The Green World Campaign and their usage of Chainlink in showcasing how hybrid smart contracts can be leveraged to reverse the effects of climate change.” 

    Other noteworthy integrations include decentralized prediction market platform Augur Turbo, which launched using Chainlink’s decentralized oracle networks (DONs) to ensure immediate settlement of global sports prediction markets, and DAFI Protocol, which integrated Chainlink’s Cryptocurrency Data Feeds to power its algorithmic rewards distribution model that helps decentralized projects avoid hyperinflation and reward long-term users. 

    Chainlink Labs also became the first Web 3.0 member of Hedera Hashgraph’s Hedera Governing Council. As the council’s first crypto-native firm, Chainlink Labs will join 21 top global enterprises and organizations, including Google and IBM, to oversee distributed governance of the Hedera network. Hedera will also integrate Chainlink into the Hedera Token Service (HTS) and use Chainlink as its preferred oracle service. 

    Rounding out an integrations-filled month, Chainlink celebrated its two-year mainnet anniversary on May 30th. Co-Founder Sergey Nazarov recorded a video thanking the community for its enduring support in building a “new vision of the world” where DONs can democratize the ability to control one’s economic destiny.
