MANDOX is excited to announce that we have integrated Chainlink Automation into the upcoming Ethereum-based EVA NFT collection smart contract, the 5th tribe to be released out of 10 total tribes. By integrating the industry-leading decentralized oracle network, we can transparently automate the NFT collection reveal and DevOps, helping give our supporters strong assurances of a Secure and reliable NFT mint.
NFT Reveals With Chainlink
There are 10 different MANDOX tribes, each with its own unique NFT collection. When releasing the 5th collection, we aimed to create a better NFT drop experience for users supporting the MANDOX mission.
After reviewing various solutions, we selected Chainlink because it's based on cutting-edge academic research, supported by a time-tested oracle network, and secured through the generation and on-chain verification of cryptographic proofs that prove the integrity of each function supplied to smart contracts.
Chainlink Automation integration into the Eva ERC721Psi contract works by combining block data and continual checks during mint with the oracle node and in-contract custom logic to execute as necessary. The MANDOX NFT smart contract will automatically perform maintenance tasks and management functions throughout the mint process when set parameters are reached. This provides our users with automated and verifiable assurances directly on-chain that the NFT reveal and continual management is provably fair and was not tampered with by the oracle, outside entities, or the left exposed to potential vulnerabilities.
Executing the NFT Reveal With Chainlink Automation
Smart contract functions require an external entity to trigger them and NFT reveals are no different. Rather than rely on centralized infrastructure, our goal was to use a high-performance automation service that could execute NFT reveals in a secure, reliable, and decentralized manner.
Chainlink Automation was the perfect solution. The Chainlink Automation Network enables smart contracts to outsource regular maintenance tasks to professional DevOps teams, which serve as trust-minimized, hyper-reliable, economically incentivized, and decentralized automation nodes. It allows users to define Chainlink Automation jobs, which are performed for a fee using a professional network of node operators, which rotate taking on these jobs.
Some critical features of Chainlink Automation include:
Highly reliable, performant, and decentralized automation - Chainlink Automation ensures transactions are identified and confirmed quickly even during periods of heavy network congestion by leveraging Chainlink's battle-tested transaction manager.
Time-tested infrastructure that helps save costs - Chainlink Automation enables us to eliminate in-house automation infrastructure costs, reduce resources spent on DevOps, and increase speed and efficiency.
Built to enable faster scaling - Chainlink Automation enables us to scale faster and avoid the challenges that come with building and maintaining the infrastructure needed to reliably automate across multiple chains.
Unlocks new use cases - With smart contract automation, we're able to explore new use cases and unlock capabilities that would otherwise not have been possible.
Easy-to-use - Developers are able to schedule time-based automation jobs in seconds using the Chainlink Automation Job Scheduler's no-code UI.
In the future, MANDOX plans to work on further integrations of Chainlink Automation including Chainlink VRF (RNG random number generator) to maximize our developers' time spent on operations in order to increase the overall project efficiency bringing security and true verifiable randomness.
"Composability is a core component of Web3 and it's amazing that we can seamlessly use the time-proven Chainlink Network to outsource key parts of our NFT infrastructure in a secure way and save valuable development time. This is what Web3 is all about." - Luke Humpries, CEO of MANDOX.
About EVA by MANDOX
EVA is the 5th Tribe out of 10 tribes of the MANDOX Ecosystem. Each tribe has its own unique NFT mint and collection. EVA focuses on empowering women in Web3 and around the world. Headed by and ran under the Boss Girls name, EVA empowers all women to speak their voice, reach for those things they wouldn't have had before, and show the world the power of women. Boss Girls utilizes the Eva NFT collection to showcase how women in Web3 use intelligence, empowerment, education, encouragement, and teamwork to step into foreign territory, and encourage women to use their voice to build a better future for all women in Web3.
The MANDOX NFT Collection of 10k is very unique, bringing utilities not normally seen in the NFT space. The MANDOX.Farm Staking platform allows investors to receive native token through passive rewards by staking NFTs. MANDOX is also producing a comic series that will include the 10 tribes along with a GameFi platform that is in beta testing. These NFTs will also be showcased on their own innovative NFT marketplace known as Create. MANDOX brings a whole new meaning to "bridging the gap" between cryptocurrencies and NFTs.
Chainlink is the industry-standard Web3 services platform that has enabled trillions of dollars in transaction volume across DeFi, insurance, gaming, NFTs, and other major industries. As the leading decentralized oracle network, Chainlink enables developers to build feature-rich Web3 applications with seamless access to real-world data and off-chain computation across any blockchain and provides global enterprises with a universal gateway to all blockchains.
