Space SIP Integrates Chainlink VRF for Randomized NFTs and Chance-Based Outcomes
We’re excited to announce that Space SIP — one of the hottest blockchain-enabled NFT games — has integrated Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF) on Binance Smart Chain mainnet. By integrating the industry-leading decentralized oracle network, we now have access to a tamper-proof and auditable source of randomness needed to generate and distribute NFTs, reveal Mystery Capsules, and settle unexpected match results, with more use cases to come in the future. Ultimately this creates a more exciting, transparent, and fraud-proof user experience, as all users are given an equal chance to earn rare NFTs, win amazing prizes, and more.
In order to help ensure a fair outcome for all players, 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/validators, while off-chain RNG solutions derived from off-chain APIs 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 Space SIP 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 Space SIP game is provably fair and was not tampered with by the oracle, outside entities, or the Space SIP team.
Verifiable randomness is extremely important in blockchain gaming, as it determines the game’s trustworthiness. From the very first day, Space SIP has focused on how to ensure fair outcomes and randomness without compromising on security or usability, and Chainlink VRF is the perfect solution to help us with this. This integration shows our commitment to providing transparency and fairness to all players in all game activities.
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.
