Chainlink VRF

A verifiable random function is a pseudo-random function whose output is unique and can be publicly verified.

ChainLink has implemented their VRF using public key cryptography. It works like so:

  1. The user creates a β€œseed” value

  2. A ChainLink operator, who has publicly committed to a keypair, uses their secret to sign the seed value.

  3. The user is able to verify that the operator has signed the seed value, and consume the signature as the β€œrandom number”.

ChainLink VRF Documentation: https://docs.chain.link/docs/chainlink-vrf​

This approach has some benefits in that the operator cannot β€œlie”: they must sign the seed using the secret they have committed to. The algorithm is also instantaneous: there is no delay or waiting period to get the answer.

Usage

To use the RNGChainlink RNG service, create a new prize pool using the service or set it on an existing pool.

🚨🚨🚨 Chainlink RNG requires 2 LINK tokens per RNG request 🚨🚨🚨

🚨🚨🚨 You must deposit LINK into the PRIZE STRATEGY 🚨🚨🚨
