Every day, the market for digital assets presents new innovations, changes and alliances that allow it to continue to expand, while improving or updating services and functions already available.
This is the case of the decentralized platform OVR, which recently announced its unification with the decentralized oracle network that aims to connect smart contracts with real-world data, Chainlink.
Such a merger will allow OVR to make use of the verifiable randomness feature of Chainlink (VRF), which means that you will have the ability to choose in a fair and crystal-clear way who will be the creditor to get a special grant fund from the list of participants that are part of the next OVRLand (OVRL) and of the Treasure Hunt.
Likewise, the team that makes up OVR intends to take advantage of the Chainlink oracles present throughout the platform, with the sole purpose of being able to connect the physical world to the OVRLand digital metaverse, which will result in having a virtual experience that is intimately linked to and affected by the real world.
Chainlink y OVR
Due to the integration that this OVR service raises, there are some doubts on the part of users, such as knowing if there is the possibility of fitting decentralized logic within the OVRL and NFT, or if it is possible to take geographic data found in the outside of the chain, and use them in the blockchain in order to interact within this metaverse.
It is right at this point where it comes into action Chainlink, as It gives OVR the ability to completely securely connect a series of real-world events to blockchains, with the goal of dropping smart contract executions.
All existing data in the outside world and that respond to random events, such as geolocation and weather, can be integrated from existing sources outside the chain and supplied in it through decentralized Oracle networks, which are powered by Chainlink.
To be more clear about this process, we can give an example of the most immediate use of OVR, which is the ability to be able to benefit from randomness, simply to set the metaverse events.
Nevertheless, said source of randomness must have certain characteristics, since it must among other aspects, gto guarantee the impossibility of being manipulated or of predicting events, this with the aim of avoiding unfair advantages, especially when randomness is responsible for the movement of real economic value.
This is why OVR decided to opt for Chainlink VRF to establish the winner of the final 15k OVR token extraction award, which functions as a community reward for treasure hunters, and to participate in the broader 50k for OVRLand buyers. .
It should be noted that the extraction process will be carried out by means of a public and deterministic algorithm to select a winner in a fair and transparent manner.
What is OVR?
To have a better clarity of the implications of this integration it is important to point out that OVR basically It is a platform designed to provide geolocated AR (Augmented Reality) and VR (Virtual Reality) experiences, which are based on the Ethereum blockchain, with the vision of integrating the physical and virtual world, so it allows its users to develop, host and visualize personalized Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality experiences, in specific geographic locations.
This is possible because The platform has a division in charge of designing the digital world in hexagons of 300 square meters, which are known as OVRL, whose purpose is to make a representation as faithful as possible of real geographical locations.
Likewise, each OVRLand is tokenized through the use of the ERC-721 NFT standard on the Ethereum blockchain. Similarly, each owner of one of these OVRLs and NFTs has the ability to determine the AR viewing experience for the specific geographic location that their NFT represents.
