Wrasslers is a new NFT gaming platform launched by 0xEssential that depends heavily on Chainlink VRF—a verifiably tamper-proof random number generator. The Wrasslers alpha release allows players to choose any Ethereum-based NFT they own as the basis for creating a Wrassler with statistical attributes that describe the Wrassler’s skills. Players can then compete in turn-based matches against Wrassler’s blockchain CPU characters. Chainlink VRF is already live on Polygon mainnet and being used to randomize a Wrassler’s starting stats, as well as to provide a randomization seed to each match, allowing for increased variance in gameplay and match outcomes.
“Using Chainlink VRF for Wrasslers was a no-brainer,” said Sammy Bauch, founder of 0xEssential, the parent company behind Wrasslers. “Chainlink was a big help on my first NFT project CryptOrchids, and Chainlink VRF is even more reliable, fast, and cost-efficient on the Polygon network.”
