LoserChick Integrates Chainlink VRF for Randomized NFT Drops
We’re excited to announce that LoserChick has integrated Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF) on the Polygon mainnet. By integrating the industry-leading decentralized oracle network, we now have access to a tamper-proof and auditable source of randomness needed to fairly randomize NFT drops to users. Ultimately, this creates a more exciting, transparent, and fraud-proof user experience as everyone has a provably unbiased chance at winning the rarest NFTs.
In LoserChick, there are 5 different tiers of NFTs, and all NFTs in each tier will be distributed to the users randomly. In order to keep this draw truly random, we needed 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.
After reviewing different 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 cryptographic proof can only be generated if the VRF process is tamper-proof. This helps provide our users with automated and verifiable proof directly on-chain that the LoserChick NFT drop is provably fair and was not tampered with by the oracle, outside entities, or the team.
“After reviewing several off-chain and on-chain solutions for random number generators, we think Chainlink VRF provides a more safe and convenient solution for our users during the NFT minting process.” — Shrug CEO
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.
