Monsters Clan is Integrating Chainlink VRF to Help Power Battle Modes
We’re excited to announce that Monsters Clan — a novel third person, user controlled NFT game — is integrating Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF) on the Polygon blockchain. By integrating the industry-leading decentralized oracle network, we can obtain access to a tamper-proof and auditable source of randomness needed for unbiased matchmaking between two players or clans fighting in Monsters Clan NFT game. Ultimately this creates a more exciting, transparent, and fair user experience, as random players will be able to compete against each other in PVP or Clans fighting modes with the help of Chainlink VRF.
Monsters Clan is a unique third-person NFT game that allows players to own, train, and use their monsters to fight in battles to win and earn rewards. The whole NFT game is based on Monsters and their unique lifestyle. $MONS is a BEP 20 token that will be used to buy, sell, and rent game NFTs through Monsters Clan NFT marketplace.
In order to bring transparency and fairness to PVP and clans fighting mode, particularly starting random fights between players or clans , 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 derived from blockchain data like block hashes can be exploited by miners, while data derived from 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 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 Monsters Clan smart contract will only accept the random number input if it has valid cryptographic proof, and the cryptographic proof can only be generated if the VRF process is tamper-proof. This helps provide our users with automated and verifiable assurances directly on-chain that Monsters Clan is provably fair and was not tampered with by the oracle, outside entities, or the Monsters Clan team.
“We are excited to integrate Chainlink VRF into our NFT Game because we believe in providing a fraud-proof, highly reliable, and transparent gaming experience to our users” Shahzaib Ali, CEO at Monsters Clan.
