Wasder and Chainlink Join Forces to Pioneer Provably Fair Gaming And E-Sports Data Through Blockchain Technology
Stockholm, Sweden. (Sep 1st, 2021) — Wasder, a revolutionary and rapidly growing multi-social platform for gamers, announced today its collaboration with market-leading blockchain oracle solution Chainlink, as Wasder looks to pioneer the entertainment industry of mainstream gaming.
As the first platform of its kind, the effort paves the way for an exciting future where both publishers and gamers are winners, along with new built-in gaming industry standards for fair play, direct user ownership of in-game assets, and easily accessible global gaming marketplaces.
“With the explosion of blockchain technology in the gaming industry, Wasder aims to be the de-facto metaverse that all gamers go-to for finding community, friends, and people to play with and trade awesome collectibles like NFTs. Our commitment to Chainlink cements our vision of using blockchain technology to provide gamers with a truly fair standard that they can trust when it comes to important functions like randomly determining the contents of loot boxes, distributing rewards and collectibles of varying rarities, and creating overall exciting and unpredictable digital experiences.
Additionally, as we enter the world of esports, we can leverage Chainlink data to enable brand new ways of monetizing players and teams like never before, one in which players’ collective historical achievements are easily verifiable,” says Thomas Gronnevik, CEO of Wasder.
Chainlink VRF for Fair Play
Wasder intends on using the verifiable random number generator of Chainlink VRF for several reasons. It will be used to help ensure truly fair gamification, meaning players can unlock randomized rewards as part of their progression along the Game of Wasder, the native platform game. Chainlink VRF is valuable in this regard because it allows players to publicly audit the RNG algorithm, leading to unprecedented transparency and verifiability that in-game items are truly rare and their distribution is equally accessible to all players without any special backdoor privileges.
Chainlink’s VRF technology is not just for verified publishers either, but any content creator can use it to run tamper-proof competitions, raffles, and giveaways. This enables any community and/or user to run their own randomized reward competitions within their favorite games through a single simple interface, making the technology readily available for the masses.
Pioneering E-sports Data On-Chain With Minted NFTs
Wasder gives e-sports teams the opportunity to mint NFT Trophies based on their match and tournament victories. For example, users can earn exclusive NFTs and game rewards to display on their platform. Each victory can be recorded in the NFT with the data provided and each trophy can be digitally signed by the team members using team verified wallets. This provides long-term value to fans as E-sports players will be able to create a “medal vest” displaying all their awards and trophies. Fans and speculators then have a visible and shareable track record on players that they can verify as authentic before engaging with certain players.
“Fairness in gaming is absolutely essential to the long-term growth and health of the space. We are impressed by Wasder’s passion for truly fair and verifiable randomness on their platform and are excited to see it provide revolutionary benefits for both creators and consumers in the gaming industry,” stated William Herkelrath, Managing Director at Chainlink Labs.
