What is VERSE?
With over 35 million wallets created and more than 5 million active users, Bitcoin.com has played a leading role since 2015 in bringing millions of newcomers to Bitcoin, cryptocurrency and the greater Web3 industry. A trusted brand, Bitcoin.com serves as the first point of contact for newcomers to safely interact with and learn about this paradigm-shifting technology.
Verse is the next step in Bitcoin.com’s mission to establish blockchain as an integral component of society towards the goal of creating more financial freedom in the world. The VERSE token, currently on sale at getverse.com will provide utility in the Bitcoin.com ecosystem, while acting as a reward mechanism to encourage positive actions such as self-storage of assets. VERSE also refers to an ecosystem of decentralized applications (DApps) that will lead millions of people on their journey beyond Bitcoin, including into decentralized finance (DeFi), one of the fastest growing verticals in the Web3 today.
Why we joined Chainlink BUILD
Bitcoin.com joined BUILD to maximize the benefits of security and reliability provided by Chainlink’s oracle infrastructure and to help accelerate the adoption of the VERSE ecosystem.
As part of BUILD, Bitcoin.com will receive key benefits, including access to and integration of on-chain price data through Chainlink price feedsa verifiable random number generator through Chainlink VRFand decentralized smart contract automation throughout Chainlink automation. These proven services will serve as critical infrastructure for the Bitcoin.com Verse ecosystem. Bitcoin.com will also receive access to new Chainlink product alpha and beta releases and increased technical support, among other benefits.
In exchange for these services, Bitcoin.com will make several percentage points of the VERSE token supply available to Chainlink service providers, including stakers, over time. These mutually aligned financial incentives enable both the Bitcoin.com and Chainlink communities to support each other.
How Chainlink Services help power the VERSE ecosystem
