Leading blockchain oracle solution API3 announced the release of “the first true random number generator for smart contracts” dubbed API3 QRNG. Now live, API3 QRNG renders randomness by employing quantum mechanics, unlike previous mathematical-based random number generators.
API3’s True Random Number Generator
At this time, a considerable amount of decentralized applications (dApps) rely on pseudo-random computer algorithms. While verified (pseudo) random functions are accessible, they frequently require high fees and still risk failing. API3 QRNG uses random numbers generated by measuring a fluctuating quantum system to guarantee erratic randomness.
“The laws of quantum physics guarantee that certain measurement outcomes must be random. This allows us to generate a fast stream of unbiased random numbers that cannot be predicted beforehand.”
