The Verifiable Random Function (VRF) and Its Value Proposition in Crypto Ecosystems
The current blockchain ecosystem is facing a major challenge; how to introduce randomness in smart contract decisions. As it stands, most smart contract infrastructures are limited to deterministic inputs and outputs. While efficient to some extent, malicious players have been taking advantage of the predictability to manipulate on-chain decisions. A trend that has forced crypto innovators to come up with native solutions such as the Verifiable Random Function (VRF).
