On Tuesday, a renowned blockchain-based strategy and trading game, Planet IX integrated the Verifiable Random Function (VRF) of Chainlink on Polygon mainnet. The protocol announced the development in its latest blog post. Occasioned by this integration, Planex IX now have access to a tamper-proof and auditable source of randomness, used to randomize player rewards when prospecting waste in EternaLabs.
Notably, the integration with Planet IX allows for a more exciting and transparent user experience. This, according to the protocol, will allow players to become confident that the odds of certain outcomes are accurate. Meanwhile, in recent times, Planet IX integrated Chainlink VRF to help randomly select IXT CAT RAFF winners, and Chainlink Automation to help automate weekly draws. However, with the latest development, Planet IX expanded its VRF integration. This thus allows players to verify the integrity of its random in-game mechanics for themselves.
Worth noting that Planet IX seeks to give players a unique gaming experience. It plans to achieve this by offering true digital ownership through NFTs. Currently, the blockchain-based trading game boast of over 190,000 connected wallets. Also, it possesses an immense and dedicated community to cement its place at the vanguard of NFT gaming.
Planet IX justifies its choice of Chainlink VRF
Now, Planet IX said its choice of Chainlink VRF manifested because it is based on cutting-edge academic research, supported by a time-tested oracle network, and secured through the generation and on-chain verification of cryptographic proofs that prove the integrity of each random number supplied to smart contracts.
According to Planet IX, Chainlink VRF usually combine block data that is unknown when the request us made with the oracle node’s pre-committed private key. This thus helps to generate both a random number and a cryptographic proof. Meanwhile, Planet IX smart contract only accept just the random number input if it possesses a valid cryptographic proof. As revealed, the proof is usually generated if the VRF process is tamper-proof. This thus avail users with automated and verifiable assurances directly on-chain.
Meanwhile, the CEO of Planet IX, Karl Blomsterwall reacted to the development. According to the CEO, randomness remains an essential element of multiplayer games. Blomsterwall believes Chainlink VRF, has, over time, cemented its place as the industry-standard RNG for Web3 gaming. Further, the CEO expressed the delight of the team to expand the use cases of the gaming firm. This, according to Blomsterwall, will help to ensure a fair distribution of certain in-game resources and items.
