Last June, we announced that we are working with Chainlink, the market leader in providing decentralized oracle networks to smart contract applications, to bring new innovations to the non-fungible token (NFT) asset class.

Our initial focus has been to bring Chainlink VRF (Verifiable Randomness Function) technology to Polyient Games Founder’s Keys (PGFKs) to provide a one-of-a-kind NFT reward experience.

Today, we are excited to unveil the first Chainlink VRF integration into the Polyient Games Ecosystem is live: a limited edition NFT reward for PGFK holders called the PolyAnt Queen.

The PolyAnt Queen is based on original artwork created by Diego Rodriguez, the popular independent crypto artist and co-founder of Polyient portfolio company Blockade Games.

Background

Polyient Games recently completed a $5M PGFK sale and launched V1 of the Polyient Games DEX (PG DEX), a decentralized swap protocol for NFT-adjacent fungible tokens that currently features a market for the Polyient Games Governance Token (PGT).

Chainlink is a decentralized oracle network that allows smart contracts to connect with data and systems existing outside the blockchain in a highly secure and reliable manner. It has been at the forefront of smart contract innovation for years and was recently recognized by The World Economic Forum (WEF) as one of the top 100 “early to growth-stage”’ Technology Pioneers for 2020.

Chainlink VRF-Fueled PGFK Reward

  1. Common
  2. Uncommon
  3. Rare
  4. Legendary
  5. Mythic (Highest rarity)
  6. Alpha (1/1 only for original artist)

Similar to the Wendex badge released last month, each rarity of the PolyAnt Queen has been assigned an undisclosed % yield boost that will amplify reward outputs for PGFKs, Polyient Games-supported fungible tokens, and PG DEX LP tokens (PGLPs) when they are staked inside the upcoming Polyient Games Vaults. Full details on Vaults and yield boosting will be unveiled later this year.

All eligible PGFK holders, based on the snapshot that was taken on 10/24/20 at Ethereum Block #11116194, will receive a PolyAnt Queen, where the rarity of the collectible is randomly determined using Chainlink VRF. The odds that a user will receive a rare PolyAnt Queen is a function of the number of PGFKs they are stacking in their wallet.

This methodology allows us to incentivize users to participate in the Polyient Games Ecosystem while keeping an element of gamification and chance via Chainlink VRF. Notably, Polyient Games NFTs that are generated using Chainlnk VRF will forever carry a Chainlink logo identifier in the top right of the collectible to highlight the novelty of their creation.

We selected Chainlink VRF as our source of Random Number Generation (RNG) because it provides our users with on-chain verifiable proof that all NFTs are randomly distributed in a fair and unbiased manner, which neither our development team nor any external entities can influence. This enables unforeseen levels of transparency and fairness to our NFT reward systems.

Using Chainlink VRF For Distribution

  1. We associate all PGFK holders with numbers that correlate to their “entries”
  2. For every 1 PGFK, a PGFK Member receives 1 numbered entry
  3. We then randomly obtain a number from Chainlink VRF that we use as the seed for our RNG
  4. We then generated a number between 1–14,939 from the RNG using our seed from VRF
  5. That number correlates to an address using the numbered entries for PGFK holders. This address is then a winner!
  6. That address and all subsequent entries are removed for the next round.
  7. New numbered entries are then given out to all remaining addresses.
  8. Repeat until all NFTs are won!

Looking Forward

Included in this roadmap is the addition of Chainlink VRF into the upcoming Polyient Games Vaults. Additionally, as we expand the number of DeFi protocols within the Polyient Games Ecosystem, we will be leveraging price and data oracles from Chainlink to assure a high-quality user experience and a fairly priced marketplace for NFTs and our supported fungible tokens.
