Web3 games and wallets now use a quantum-based random number generator.

To provide unexpected randomness, the QRNG employs a fluctuating quantum mechanism, which may be employed in Web3 gaming and gambling.

The first Quantum Random Number Generator has been launched by researchers from Australia National University and AP13, a blockchain oracle service (QRNG).

Web3 organizations will be able to use a totally unexpected random number generating system that is both safe and free to use as a result of the collaboration.

Random number generators aren’t new, but the QRNG system is the first of its type to use quantum physics to create a random number. This is the first really random number process, as opposed to the present pseudo-mathematical systems, which may be manipulated or reproduced.

Gambling and lotteries, sports and contests, and sampling and statistics are all examples of conventional applications for random numbers. As more businesses embrace Web3, a tamper-proof and genuine random number generator that is not dependent on third parties will be necessary.

To ensure unexpected randomness and produce the numbers, API3’s QRNG monitors random quantum fluctuations in the phase and amplitude of an electromagnetic field in a vacuum.

Ethereum, BNB Chain, Arbitrum, Avalanche, Optimism, Polygon, Fantom, and Moonbeam are among the 13 blockchains for which the technology is now accessible as an application programming interface (API). The service is free to use, however, there will be a small network cost for contacting the API.

Web3 and metaverse gaming might benefit the most from these systems, as games rely on a certain amount of randomness and unpredictability to keep players interested.

A tamper-proof random number generator will also assist blockchain-based gaming applications, resulting in increased confidence in betting systems.
People may utilize random numbers for whatever purpose they wish, according to Tranter, from the creation of unique nonfungible tokens (NFTs) and artwork to automated decision-making.

They might also be used to generate crypto wallets, he said, because current pseudo-random number generators can frequently result in repetition or intricate patterns that could be exploited. “The rules of quantum physics ensure that a QRNG is genuinely random, closing this gap,” he noted.

A tamper-proof approach will also assist Web3 applications that need public engagement, such as random token distribution or chosen winners.

API3 QRNG is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) by the Australia National University Quantum Optics Group, and all data sent between servers is secured. Furthermore, the random numbers are destroyed after use, ensuring that the company never gets access to them.
