Alchemix x Chainlink Keepers Integration

Alchemix announced a new integration with Chainlink Keepers for Vault Harvesting and Launches new price feeds for DeFi.

In order to enable automation, someone needs to trigger the yield harvesting and debt repayment functions in the smart contract on a regular basis. This is because smart contracts are not actually autonomous, but instead are “asleep” by default and need to be “woken up” by an on-chain transaction in order to run their coded logic.

Pushing this transaction triggering process onto the users is a non-starter because it’s a poor user experience and the gas costs involved make it impractical for all but large whales. Alternatively, running our own server to trigger this process would require us to build, manage, and deploy our own DevOps solution over the long term, which could be prone to downtime, involves additional trust assumptions, and sucks up a large amount of time from our developers that otherwise would be building core business logic for Alchemix.

“Strengthening our integration with Chainlink was an obvious choice given the proven security, reliability, and diversity of their decentralised services. As a result, we are able to create a self-paying loan solution that is decentralised and automated end-to-end, as well as quickly bootstrapping adoption for ALCX within other DeFi protocols. Both of these features were only achievable in an efficient yet highly secure manner due to the permissionless composability in DeFi,” Scoopy Trooples.
