Avaxcells Will Integrate Chainlink VRF to Secure their PvP Battle Arenas and Tournaments
We’re excited to announce that Avaxcells — an NFT collection and Player vs Player RPG card game — will integrate Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF) on the Avalanche blockchain. By integrating Chainlink’s industry-leading decentralized oracle network, we can obtain access to a tamper-proof and auditable source of randomness needed to allow players have a fair way to start each battle, using Chainlink Verifiable Random Function, we will use the returned data to determine which player attacks first on the PvP Battle Arenas and Tournaments. Ultimately this creates a more exciting, transparent, and fraud-proof user experience, as users can rely on a verifiable source of truth that the PvP game and Tournaments count with fair mechanics each fight.
Avaxcells aims to bring utility to your NFTs — you can collect them as a hobby, but you can also battle them, giving you the opportunity to earn our in-game currency. We want to create a fun and fair game that will keep you entertained but also give you the option to earn cryptocurrency while playing it.
We will feature different game modes, also ranked and unranked tournaments where players around the world will get together to test the power of their Avaxcells, have fun and most importantly earn great rewards on the Avalanche blockchain.
In order to have fair PvP games and tournaments, we need access to a secure random number generator (RNG) that any user could independently audit. However, RNG solutions for smart contracts require several security considerations to prevent manipulation and ensure system integrity. For instance, RNG solutions using on-chain data like block hashes can be exploited by blockchain miners, while off-chain RNG solutions like traditional data providers are opaque and don’t provide users with definitive proof about the integrity of the process.
After reviewing various solutions, we selected Chainlink VRF because it’s based on cutting-edge academic research, supported by Chainlink’s time-tested oracle infrastructure, and secured through the generation and on-chain verification of cryptographic proofs that guarantee the integrity of each random number supplied to smart contracts.
Chainlink VRF works by combining block data that is still unknown when the request is made with the oracle node’s pre-committed private key to generate both a random number and a cryptographic proof. The Avaxcells smart contract will only accept the random number input if it has a valid cryptographic proof, and the cryptographic proof can only be generated if the VRF process is tamper-proof. This provides our users with automated and verifiable assurances directly on-chain that the PvP Battle Arenas and Tournaments are provably fair and cannot be tampered with by the oracle, outside entities, or the Kaizen Group team.
Chainlink is the industry standard oracle network for powering hybrid smart contracts. Chainlink Decentralized Oracle Networks provide developers with the largest collection of high-quality data sources and secure off-chain computations to expand the capabilities of smart contracts on any blockchain. Managed by a global, decentralized community, Chainlink currently secures billions of dollars in value for smart contracts across decentralized finance (DeFi), insurance, gaming, and other major industries.
Chainlink is trusted by hundreds of organizations, from global enterprises to projects at the forefront of the blockchain economy, to deliver definitive truth via secure, reliable oracle networks.
