In the midst of GameFi euphoria, another “Play-to-Earn” ecosystem advances its verifiable randomness with Chainlink (LINK) tools.
Polygon-based Wrassler’s game begins with Chainlink’s VRF.
Chainlink’s random number generator has empowered its technical design, according to an official announcement shared by the Wrasslers team.
.@wrasslersgg is leveraging #Chainlink VRF on @0xPolygon to access a verifiably tamper-proof source of randomness, which is then used to fairly assign character stats, determine in-game moves, and settle match outcomes in its #NFT-based wrestling game.

The VRF module by Chainlink will be used in new releases of this popular game to fairly assign character specifications, determine in-game events, and customize match outcomes.
Because Wrasslers uses Polygon (formerly Matic Network) smart contracts, Chainlink VRF instruments will incorporate this platform.
According to Sammy Bauch, founder of Wrasslers’ developer 0xEssential, adding Chainlink VRF was a natural step for his team and was required to build a fair and inclusive gaming ecosystem:
It was a no-brainer to use Chainlink VRF for Wrasslers. Chainlink was extremely helpful on my first NFT project, CryptOrchids, and Chainlink VRF is even more dependable, fast, and cost-effective on the Polygon network.
Why are VRFs important in the GameFi segment?
Wrasslers has positioned itself as an ecosystem for NFT products since its inception. Wrasslers and the Metaverse Wrassling Federation will onboard every NFT product that adheres to the Wrassleable standard, rather than creating a gaming environment around a single game.
Wrasslers fans will be able to play a single-player mode with battles against blockchain CPU in the game’s early releases.
Chainlink VRF will ensure the randomization of key in-game features such as match outcomes and player data, which will be unaffected by the Wrasslers team or third-party oracles.
