We are excited to announce that the Chainlink Keepers Open Beta is now opening up for initial users, community review, and feedback.
Chainlink Keepers provide smart contract developers, decentralized applications (dApps), and decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) with a highly reliable, decentralized, and cost-efficient method of automating smart contract functions and regular contract maintenance, creating a never-before-seen form of fully decentralized DevOps capabilities. Smart contract applications can use Chainlink Keepers to strengthen the uptime guarantees of critical on-chain functions and achieve end-to-end decentralized automation without relying on an additional layer of trust. The result is DeFi and the broader smart contract economy having more robust infrastructure to scale and secure higher amounts of value for users.
Chainlink Keepers is currently in Open Beta with initial users, so we can gather final feedback and continue to improve the decentralized service’s experience based on user needs.

- Mint tokens when reserves increase
- Harvest yield from vaults
- Rebase elastic supply tokens
- Trigger automated trading strategies
- Liquidate undercollateralized loans
- Release locked assets after periods of inactivity
- Top up token balances falling below a minimum threshold
As a new decentralized service available through the Chainlink Network, DeFi and other hybrid smart contracts can use Chainlink Keepers as hyper-reliable automation bots for various smart contract operations, initially on Ethereum. Since the Chainlink Keeper Network leverages the same time-tested and battle-hardened pool of professional ...
