Sons Of Mars Integrates Chainlink VRF
Sons Of Mars Integrates Chainlink VRF to help randomly select a winner in a NFT battle royale experience.
By integrating the industry-leading decentralized oracle network, we now have access to a tamper-proof and auditable source of randomness needed to randomly eliminate Roman Warrior NFTs during Battle Royales. Ultimately this creates a more exciting and transparent user experience, as users are faced with provably fair and unpredictable in-game outcomes.
Sons Of Mars is an evolving experience aiming to grow from a single Roman Warrior NFT collection to include multiple collections and physical media. The current Roman Warrior NFT collection gives holders royalties on specific creations such as graphic novels, games, and television media.
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 Sons Of Mars 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 provides our users with automated and verifiable assurances directly on-chain that Battle Royale eliminations are provably random and were not tampered with by the oracle, outside entities, or the Sons Of Mars team.
Chainlink 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 Sons Of Mars
SOM is an NFT collection unlike any other you have ever seen. 5555 Roman Warriors will engage in provably random fights in the arena of OpenSea. Over 40 days, all but one of the warriors will perish and forever be transformed into a classic Roman statue. The last one standing will be crowned Mars Incarnate. After the experience, the owner of Mars Incarnate has a fateful decision to make; either they hold onto their victorious NFT or sell it back to the project for 200 ETH.
