- Chainlink Functions, a serverless developer platform to easily connect smart contracts with Web2 APIs, is now live on the Avalanche Fuji testnet.
- Smart contract developers building on the Avalanche ecosystem can now use Chainlink Functions to connect Web2 APIs and cloud services in their smart contracts.
Chainlink Functions unlocks new Web3 and Web2 integrations
Chainlink Functions is a serverless developer platform that enables the connection of smart contracts to any Web2 API, making it possible to access social media signals, messaging services, AI computation, and more. Before Chainlink Functions, Web3 developers couldn’t connect their smart contracts to existing Web2 APIs, while Web2 developers couldn’t use their infrastructure to build a Web3 app. Chainlink Functions bridges the gap between Web3 and Web2 by providing the infrastructure needed to build advanced and sophisticated applications.
Avalanche ecosystem developers can combine Chainlink Functions with other services
Smart contract developers building in the Avalanche ecosystem can combine Chainlink Functions with other high-quality Chainlink services, including Chainlink Data Feeds, Chainlink VRF, and Chainlink Automation. Avalanche developers can also use Chainlink Functions to connect their smart contracts to existing Web2 APIs.

Chainlink Functions offers extensive connectivity and customization
Chainlink Functions aims to make it easy for Web3 developers to connect their smart contracts off-chain in minutes, unlocking new possibilities for advanced Web3 applications that combine traditional systems’ value and blockchain’s transparency, security, and efficiency. It acts as a decentralized compute runtime that allows developers to test, simulate, and run custom logic off-chain for Web3 applications. With Chainlink Functions, developers can connect smart contracts to any data, device, or system, ranging from public and password-protected APIs to IoT devices and enterprise systems.
They can also aggregate and transform their data using scalable and customizable serverless runtime environments.
Chainlink Functions offer trust-minimized security and self-service
Chainlink Functions offers trust-minimized security by building upon the time-tested decentralized infrastructure that helps secure billions of dollars for Web3 apps. Moreover, it is a self-service platform that allows developers to fulfill their external data and compute needs without having to interface with node operators. Developers can get started in minutes with Functions’ serverless developer solution, which features a CLI, starter kits, and a debugging environment.
