After two profitable variations, PoolTogether launched Model three replace on Thursday, permitting customers to create their very own new video games implementing their very own guidelines.

Chainlink VRF is a decentralized randomness generator helpful in bettering lotteries, playing, and gaming methods – each conventional and decentralized. Regardless of at present having full deal with implementing VRF on Ethereum mainnet-based platforms, the builders are trying ahead to implementations to different blockchains.

Over 10 tasks have labored on the testnet variations, whereas others akin to PoolTogether used it on the mainnet.
“And I additionally know that quite a few the chains that we’re integrating into, curiously sufficient, whether or not they’re gaming-focused or not, have already got individuals lined up to make use of it after we’ve finalized our integration to that chain.”
In accordance with Sergey, Chainlink VRF is switching its focus to gaming and gambling-specific blockchains as rising Ethereum charges scare away gaming dApps from the platform. He stated,
“And plenty of customers for gaming have now began to maneuver to different extra gaming-specific, which is then additionally the place we’ll have Chainlink VRF quickly as effectively.”
PoolTogether makes use of Chainlink VRF on Ethereum mainnet
As talked about earlier than, PoolTogether is the primary use case of Chainlink VRF on Ethereum mainnet. The decentralized playing platform goals to provide customers a “lossless” random sport. The platform makes use of Chainlink VRF to randomly choose and reward one winner with crypto every week from a pool of savers. Properly, it’s possible you’ll marvel, how does nobody lose on this playing platform?
On the floor, PoolTogether collects Dai stablecoins in trade from gamblers for raffle tickets and swimming pools the tokens collectively.
