Citizen Finance Integrates Chainlink VRF Into a Multi-Chain Ecosystem
We are excited to announce the integration of Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF) into the Citizen Finance ecosystem. We are leveraging Chainlink VRF to help power randomly generated NFTs on the Sante Fe platform, with plans to expand the integration to Metalands, a blockchain-enabled FPS game.
Citizen Finance is a multi-chain ecosystem with the goal of providing NFT-based utilities in gaming, art, and decentralized finance (DeFi). By integrating Chainlink VRF, we are further committing to the core foundations of blockchain technology: transparency and fairness.
Chainlink VRF is being integrated into our multi-chain platform in two (2) phases:
Phase One (1); Santa Fe Integration
The early stage of the Chainlink VRF integration is live on Santa Fe — a DeFi and NFT gamification platform. Chainlink VRF helps ensure random NFT mints for NFT staking and blindbox gamification are tamper-proof and unbiased for all participants.
Phase Two (2); Metalands Integration
Metalands, a blockchain-enabled first-person shooter (FPS) game, will also integrate Chainlink VRF to support our loot box and airdrop mechanism. Players will be incentivized with random NFTs based on their activities, creating a more fun and entropic gameplay experience for users.
Why We Chose Chainlink VRF
After reviewing various solutions, we selected Chainlink VRF because it’s based on cutting-edge academic research, supported by time-tested oracle infrastructure, and secured through the generation and on-chain verification of cryptographic proofs that prove 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 Santa Fe smart contracts 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 Sante Fe’s NFT mints are provably fair and were not tampered with by the oracle, outside entities, or the Citizen Finance team.
Citizen Finance will also be exploring further Chainlink integrations in other products of the ecosystem such as Chainlink Price Feeds on Cifipowa and the Santa Fe DEX.
“Integrating Chainlink VRF into the Citizen Finance multi-chain ecosystem was a large step in furthering the transparency and fairness within all of our ecosystem protocols, bringing a true element of chance into gameplay,” stated the Citizen Finance team. “Chainlink VRF is secure and verifiable by anyone, helping create a more exciting and fun experience for DeFi users, gamers, and more.”
About Citizen Finance
Citizen Finance is a multi-chain ecosystem powering the next generation of nft-based utilities. The platform consist of an open world first person shooter game, a decentralized staking and lending protocol and an immersive nft marketplace with mobile application.
Chainlink is the industry standard for building, accessing, and selling oracle services needed to power hybrid smart contracts on any blockchain. Chainlink oracle networks provide smart contracts with a way to reliably connect to any external API and leverage secure off-chain computations for enabling feature-rich applications. Chainlink currently secures tens of billions of dollars across DeFi, insurance, gaming, and other major industries, and offers global enterprises and leading data providers a universal gateway to all blockchains.
