Derby Stars, an NFT horse-racing metaverse game, happily announced today, Mar. 24, the integration of Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF) on the Ethereum mainnet to help randomize horse breeding.
By integrating the industry-leading decentralized oracle network, Derby Stars now has access to a tamper-proof and auditable source of randomness needed to help randomize the horse breeding process.
“We’re excited to integrate Chainlink VRF, a staple of the Web3 gaming space. Chainlink’s oracle service helps us provide a better experience for our users by helping us randomize the horse breeding process.” — Sean Hahm, Founder/CEO of Derby Stars.
About Derby Stars
Derby Stars is a horse racing metaverse game where players can breed, grow, build, and trade. It is created by a team of game veterans, aiming to provide a high-quality player experience never seen before in an NFT game.
The game revolves around horse racing, horse NFTs, in-game assets, and rewards. All players can train and race their horses. They can also get new horses by breeding them. Breeding horses is done through a system in which the parental characteristics of the horses are passed on to the offspring through a well-thought-out algorithm.
About Chainlink VRF
Chainlink VRF is a highly secure and provably fair source of on-chain randomness for all kinds of blockchain-based applications, NFTs, and games. Random Number Generation (RNG) is a mechanism for unpredictability.
RNG secures the outcome against reverse engineering. However, it’s vulnerable to miner attacks, and it requires complete trust in the data provider when it comes to off-chain implementation.
Chainlink VRF is explicitly designed to support smart contracts’ needs, providing them with an open-source and easily integrated RNG solution directly auditable on-chain by any user via cryptographic proofs. With this technology, even the oracle provider or the project developers can’t tamper the outcome
