Benchmark Protocol Integrates Chainlink

Benchmark Protocol recently announced that it deployed Chainlink Keepers on the Ethereum blockchain to execute fully decentralized rebase functions for the MARK token. The crypto is a supply-elastic collateral utility designed to inject liquidity during high volatility times in correlation with global equities markets. Benchmark is a supply elastic collateral and hedging device platform.

The community can now dictate when rebases occur, thus decentralizing the underlying Benchmark Protocol Network even further. The integration of Chainlink Keepers takes a critical function (calling the rebase) and automates it based on triggers at certain time intervals. Every 12 hours, the rebase will be called automatically. 

However, with the upcoming launch of the BEND token, the platform can adjust the rebase window and the trigger to whatever the majority of users select. It will then be possible for rebases to occur every minute, every second, or for every single transaction in the future. 

The company said:

"Benchmark Protocol has chosen to work with Chainlink again because Chainlink has a proven track record of helping manage tens of billions of dollars in assets through its secure oracle solutions. Chainlink decentralized infrastructure continues to prove itself as robust, tamper-proof, and reliable even during times of extreme volatility and network congestion."

Benchmark said that it continues to work on the launch of its governance token, BEND, and its P2P Marketplace. Underlying these two innovations will be its MARK token, which is now more decentralized than ever and ready to scale. Chainlink Keepers will help ensure a consistent and trustless rebase event.

Chainlink Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

Looking at the Chainlink price chart, we can see that LINK has fallen drastically during the current session, with sellers pushing the price even lower. If sellers maintain the current bearish sentiment, we could see the price drop to $26.
