Gala Games Integrates Chainlink VRF to Access Verifiable Randomness in NFT Drops
Chainlink’s Verifiable Random Function will be used by Gala Games to ensure fun and fair gameplay.
We’re excited to announce that Gala Games has integrated Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF) on Ethereum mainnet. By integrating the industry-leading decentralized oracle network, we now have access to a tamper-proof and verifiable random number generator (RNG) that can help power truly random VOX drops and item distribution from Snoop Stash Boxes. Additionally, as the Gala Games Ecosystem and metaverse accelerates, Chainlink VRF acts as a future-proof source of randomness needed for all RNG-based functions — giving users high assurances that Gala Games is committed to creating fun and fair gameplay.
Gala Games aims to build an Ecosystem of AAA games that can bring blockchain-based Web3 games to the mainstream. Our core philosophy can be boiled down to three essential elements:
1.Games First — We are gamers first, and we believe that an incredible gaming experience is an absolute necessity, especially when pioneering into the world of Web3 gaming. That’s why we have centuries of AAA gaming experience on our team.
2.Owned by Players — Hard work should result in equivalent rewards, so many items earned or won in Gala Games will always belong to the players as blockchain-minted tokens. Ownership means the freedom to play and earn with, or even sell your assets when you choose.
3.Community Rules — Games can not be created in a vacuum. Gala Games builds and updates games based on real time community and player feedback. We practice open communication and transparency, and we always listen to our community.
In order to build a true player-owned Ecosystem, we needed access to a verifiable random number generator that could help power the fair distribution of in-game rewards. Whether in loot boxes or other events that require randomness such as dungeon drops or player performance rewards, a verifiable RNG gives users confidence that the game they’re playing is fair and treats all players equally.
The ultimate solution to this problem comes in the form of Chainlink VRF, which 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. Gala Games smart contracts 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 helps provide users with automated and publicly verifiable proof directly on-chain that each randomness-needing game that uses Chainlink VRF for randomness is provably fair and cannot be tampered with or predicted by the oracle, outside entities, or the Gala Games team.
“Chainlink VRF has proved itself as the standard for verifiable random number generation. As a result of this integration, players can traverse our extensive game Ecosystem with confidence that our team is dedicated to creating a fun and fair environment for all.”

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.
