Chainlink price feeds to support secure and reliable gOHM bond pricing

Published Mon May 02 2022

We’re excited to announce that KlimaDAO—a project bringing tokenized carbon credits to the forefront of Web3—has integrated Chainlink Price Feeds on Polygon mainnet. By integrating the industry-leading decentralized oracle network, we now have access to reliable price data feeds that can help us securely offer gOHM/KLIMA bonds to users. Ultimately, this integration helps enable KlimaDAO to further align itself with Olympus DAO and provide a robust liquidity rail for the KLIMA token.

KlimaDAO is a black hole for carbon at the center of a new green economy. By incentivizing users to participate in the carbon economy, KlimaDAO increases access to, and demand for, carbon offsets. This is accomplished by offering a variety of bonds, in which users can bond carbon-based tokens that are then introduced into KlimaDAO’s treasury—a tool for accelerating the development of deeply liquid carbon asset pools.


As a central piece of the fast-growing green economy, KlimaDAO benefits from additional liquidity and further integrations with projects in the larger DeFi ecosystem. The introduction of gOHM/KLIMA bonds – as proposed by KIP-4 / KIP-4a – represents a low-friction way to add additional liquidity and utility to KlimaDAO’s token while aligning and sparking interest between both communities.

However, in order to securely offer our users gOHM/KLIMA bonds, access to high-quality, decentralized price data feeds that can accurately track the price of gOHM are required. KlimaDAO incentivizes the purchase of bonds through arbitrage-ready discounts, and a decentralized price data feed helps ensure that discounts are accurately reflected.

Chainlink Price Feeds are the most widely used price feeds in the blockchain ecosystem, and feature multiple layers of decentralization. They offer a multitude of mission-critical features, including:

  • High-quality data—Chainlink Price Feeds source data from numerous premium data aggregators, leading to price data that’s aggregated from hundreds of exchanges, weighted by liquidity depth, and cleaned of outliers and suspicious volumes. Chainlink’s data aggregation model generates more precise global market prices that are resistant to API downtime, flash crash outliers, and data manipulation attacks such as flash loans.
  • Secure node operators—Chainlink Price Feeds are secured by independent, security-reviewed, and Sybil-resistant oracle nodes run by leading blockchain DevOps teams, data providers, and traditional enterprises with a strong track record for reliability, even during high gas prices and extreme network congestion.
  • Decentralized network—Chainlink Price Feeds are decentralized at the data source, oracle node, and oracle network levels, generating strong protections against downtime and tampering by either the data provider or the oracle network.
  • Transparency—Chainlink provides a robust reputation framework and set of on-chain monitoring tools that allow users to independently verify the historical performance of node operators and oracle networks, as well as check the real-time prices being offered.

“Chainlink Price Feeds are a crucial piece of infrastructure for some of DeFi’s most prominent protocols. By using Chainlink Price Feeds to support KlimaDAO’s bonds, we’re giving users peace of mind that the bonds are accurately calculated and that their underlying price data has not been manipulated.”— Dionysus, KlimaDAO core member.
