Revolve Games Integrates Chainlink VRF to Fairly Assign Random Traits to Character NFTs

Revolve Games is excited to announce we have integrated Chainlink VRF to enable the creation of unique, in-game character and vehicle NFTs involving an element of chance. When users mint new characters/NFT assets in the Revolve Games metaverse they will be assigned random traits using the verifiably tamper-proof randomness supplied by Chainlink VRF. However, users who stake more in the Revolve Games metaverse will have a higher probability of earning rarer traits. The integration is already available on BSC and Polygon, with plans to launch on other blockchains in the future.

This latest integration is in line with our vision for Revolve Games, which is to build a gaming ecosystem and DeFi economy that innovates, challenges, and redefines the gaming experience. By integrating Chainlink VRF, we are able to push the boundaries of what’s possible in blockchain gaming by bringing unprecedented transparency to the source of randomness creating entropy in the Revolve Games metaverse.

As a unique character-driven game, Revolve Games has a wide range of vehicle NFTs and character NFT traits such as skin type, helmet, boots, tattoos, and more. These will become an integral part of a character’s (r)evolution, making the mechanism of distributing those NFTs and traits crucial to fair gameplay. We view this integration as a natural progression in Revolve Games’ path towards decentralized gaming, further strengthening the two core components of the Revolve Games metaverse: user experience and security.

The Benefits of Chainlink VRF

Chainlink VRF (Verifiable Random Function) is an open-source, verifiable random number generator (RNG) solution purpose-built for smart contracts. Chainlink VRF generates a tamper-proof source of randomness in a fully auditable manner that users can then rely on to create unpredictable outcomes on blockchains.

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 Revolve Games 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 helps provide users with automated and publicly verifiable proof directly on-chain that each NFT mint using Chainlink VRF is provably random and was not tampered with or predicted by the oracle, outside entities, or the Revolve Games team.

Verifiable randomness aligns closely with our vision for the Revolve Games metaverse by helping ensure our applications always operate in an unbiased and provably fair manner!

How Revolve Games Uses Chainlink VRF

To take gameplay to the next level, we will reward players that stake more in the Revolve Games Metaverse. When a user generates a character, a player’s traits are randomized based on a weight system. The more you stake, the higher chance a player has of acquiring a rare trait over a common trait.

That means the more you stake, the more unique, powerful, and cooler your character will be in the Revolve Games metaverse! When it comes to generating these random traits, Chainlink VRF allows us to use the power of oracles and secure off-chain computation to make sure everybody is subject to the same rules when it comes to earning rare traits and NFTs! Importantly, the randomness is not exposed to common miner exploits while also providing transparency not present in most off-chain RNG solutions.

Pretty cool, right?! We think so, too!

On the integration, CEO of Revolve Games, Dan Jensen said “We take security seriously, thankfully so does Chainlink. Chainlink VRF helps ensure each random number generated cannot be manipulated while also providing proof of its integrity. It’s important to us that we are able to generate random traits for assets on our platform in a tamper-proof and transparent manner as it leads to fair and exciting gameplay!

This is the future of gaming!

About ChainlinkChainlink 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.

About Revolve GamesRevolve Games is redefining GameFi , with a play-to-earn blockchain gaming ecosystem where users earn staking rewards according to their in game performance. The Revolve gaming mechanics and token utility are delivered through the Revolve Games galactic metaverse.

Actionable assets in the ecosystem are tethered and representative of an RPG (the native token of Revolve) stake. Simply, these NFTs will need to be returned to the staking contract in order for players to withdraw the corresponding RPG staked. NFT staking contracts can also be bought and sold through the Revolve NFT marketplace. This model ensures that the value of NFTs is always contained within, and supports the value of the native token.
