Chainlink, the decentralized oracle network, and Arbitrum, a leading layer 2 scaling solution, announced today the mainnet beta release of Chainlink Functions on the optimistic rollup chain Arbitrum One.
This integration marks a significant milestone in the evolution of smart contract capabilities, allowing developers to connect their dApps to any API with trust-minimized computations.
“Making Functions available for Arbitrum users is about connecting Web2 and Web3 developers and bridging the gap to allow for shared collaboration, growth, and a shared sense of community,” said Johann Eid, Chief Business Officer at Chainlink Labs.
Chainlink Functions provides a decentralized compute runtime similar to serverless offerings like AWS Lambda, enabling Web3 applications to run custom off-chain logic.
The launch of Chainlink Functions on Arbitrum One is poised to enhance the developer experience by providing low-cost computation and easy access to Web2 data.
Developers can now explore the Chainlink Functions documentation, try out the Chainlink Functions Playground, and create a subscription to begin integrating these capabilities into their applications.
