Ethereum gets verifiable randomness through Chainlink, others kept in sight

Verifiable randomness of function (VRF) of Chainlink, has got a place secured in the main net of Ethereum. A random decentralized source decentralized the ecosystem of the projects. For several applications a source trustworthy enough for randomness, like, industries of gaming and gambling, is pivotal. As told to Cointelegraph by Sergey Nazarov, the co-founder of Chainlink, that since it was only testnet there were announced 20 to 10 users. He claims already there are a lot of people eagerly awaiting the integration of gaming based and other chains.

Testnet deployment of the function involves the use of a verifiable randomness of the function case. PoolTogether is a gamified application on the mainnet Ethereum that encourages the users of the application to save money. Having a reliable source of randomness is very crucial. The co-founder of Chainlink, Leighton Cusack said that a genuine money lego is constructed by the V3 PoolTogether Protocol for games with no loss prize. The verifiable randomness of Chainlink allows the users to shift smoothly to a decentralised system from a centralised version with a lot less security features involved in the process.

What is VRF? And it’s association with Chainlink

It is known that verifiable randomness of function is an application with intricate technicalities. It is of far more cost in case of Ethereum fee terms compared to oracles of regular Chainlink. Sergei Nazarov said that it has been over a few years since the team is dealing with VRF. he also says a lot has altered in the field of Ethereum during this time. As the dynamics of gas price was quite different during that time, there were several games on Ethereum as well. So, Nazarov says that the Chainlink VRF is going to embark upon its journey successfully with quite a number of users on the mainnet Ethereum. But these will be the users who are using Ethereum for gaming till date. Therefore, Nazarov hopes to soon move Chainlink verifiable randomness of function to an arena more specialised for gaming.

Nazarov said that a proper integration with different blockchains which are EVM-compatible will turnout to be easy going with the verifiable randomness of functions of Chainlink. He finds the initial use of this new technology will be incorporated from a space of the blockchain which in the future will make connections with other relevant industries. Presently, several of these use their specific strategies to initiate randomness. 

Also they are not very keen to take up methods of decentralization. Nazarov says that in times of complications established firms always look for alternative methods of solutions. Hence, it is clear that there is a desirable demand for verifiable randomness of functions of Chainlink from other chains like Matic and it has made its place in the Ethereum mainnet.
