Kryptomon Integrates Chainlink VRF to Help Power Verifiably Random NFT Lucky Draws
Kryptomon is excited to announce the official integration of Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF) on the BNB Chain mainnet. By integrating the industry-leading decentralized oracle network, Kryptomon has leveraged a tamper-proof and auditable source of randomness that helps guarantee an unbiased selection of winners in its weekly lucky draw. Ultimately this creates a more exciting and transparent user experience, as users can rest easy knowing that Chainlink VRF helps ensure each user has a fair chance in the lucky draws.
Often described as “the living NFT game” where the best of Pokemon meets Tamagotchi, Kryptomon has taken the blockchain gaming space by storm with its consistent output of quality content as well as its powerful collaborations and partnerships. From the monthly “Walk-To-Earn” mobile Treasure Hunt events to its recently launched NFT Breeding and P&E Questing update, it’s no wonder that the Kyptomon community is seeing a surge in growth.
However, the Kryptomon team has made no secret of its vision to allow for any gamer to become a Kryptomon trainer. This is in part accomplished by its weekly lucky draws, where winners can walk away with in-game items and, if they’re really lucky, their very own Kryptomon egg.
In order to help ensure winners are truly chosen at random, access to a secure random number generator (RNG) that any user could independently audit is required. However, RNG solutions for smart contracts require several security considerations to prevent manipulation and ensure system integrity. For instance, RNG solutions derived from blockchain data like block hashes can be exploited by miners/validators, while off-chain RNG solutions derived from off-chain APIs are opaque and don’t provide users with definitive proof about the integrity of the process.
Enter Chainlink VRF. Because it is based on cutting-edge academic research, supported by a time-tested oracle network, and secured through the generation and on-chain verification of cryptographic proofs that prove the integrity of each random number supplied to smart contracts, it is little wonder that the Kryptomon team chose Chainlink VRF as its preferred RNG.
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 Kryptomon smart contract will only accept the random number input if it has valid cryptographic proof, and the cryptographic proof can only be generated if the VRF process is tamper-proof. This provides users with automated and verifiable assurances directly on-chain that the selection of Kryptomon lucky draw winners is provably fair and was not tampered with by the oracle, outside entities, or the Kryptomon team.
With the new Chainlink VRF integration in place, Kryptomon expects to continue exploring opportunities that leverage other trust-minimized services from Chainlink for enhanced functionality, including the potential to automate the lucky draw using Chainlink Keepers — a hyper-reliable smart contract automation service.
“Chainlink VRF helps create a level playing field for Kryptomon’s lucky draws, which is something that is important both to our team and also our rapidly growing community. Anyone can verify the on-chain randomness to independently check that lucky draws were fair, and this level of transparency is simply unparalleled in the blockchain space.” Umberto Canessa Cerchi, Kryptomon Founder and CEO.

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.
Kryptomon is an NFT Play-and-Earn blockchain game, where Pokémon meets Tamagotchi and CryptoKitties.
Breed, Train and Fight with your NFT Kryptomon. It’s a new world where trainers can live a new adventure on Blockchain.
Set in the Kryptomon metaverse, community members play as ‘Trainers’ of their own individual monsters — Kryptomons — each of which is a completely unique digital asset connected to an NFT. Each has a unique but mutable genetic code made up of 38 randomized parameters that determine all of the aspects — physical and behavioral — of the creature.
This not only ensures that each Kryptomon is unique but also brings to life each Kryptomon as a digital companion in the Kryptomon metaverse. They are capable of learning, falling sick, getting hungry, and protecting their trainers when out on an adventure in the physical world. In turn, trainers will have to care for, feed, and train their Kryptomon partners in order to grow and prepare for the battles ahead.
Kryptomon creates the next step in the evolution of crypto-gaming by using advanced blockchain technologies, digital genetics, and location-based technologies.
So what are you waiting for?
Play and participate in the Kryptomon league to become the Kryptomon Metaverse Champion!
