The World’s First Decentralized NFT Museum Integrates Chainlink VRF
Today, Musee Dezentral announced that it has integrated Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF) to bring a tamper-proof source of randomness to its smart contract. With VRF, users can now mint provably random NFT frames beginning today on February 15th.
Musee Dezentral is the world’s first decentralized NFT museum. It will house 222 NFT frames that are both unique, provably random collectibles and also a space where frame owners can hang NFT art from their collection in Musee Dezentral’s massive 3 floor metaverse museum. The team had several challenges due to the complexity of connecting a project like Musee Dezentral to the Ethereum blockchain, and as a result had to build a custom smart contract. When faced with the need to implement true randomness, the team integrated VRF.
“When building innovative Web3 projects, there is no guidebook,” said Frank Hahn, the CEO of Musee Dezentral. “The process calls for creative infrastructural solutions such as Chainlink to help bring added security and functionality to your smart contracts. That’s why we integrated Chainlink VRF for a tamper-proof source of randomness to mint verifiably random NFT frames.”
Fabian Burghardt, the Product and Design Lead at Musee Dezentral added, “We plan to continuously build Musee Dezentral to be a massive decentralized cultural metaverse. We want this to be accessible to everyone all over the world, whether you have a VR headset or a basic smartphone. A place where people can immerse themselves in art. What direction it heads in and where it goes next, will be directed by our community.”
Musee Dezentral’s CTO, Tom Wendland stated that “NFTs have the power to transform how we conceptualize art and ownership. We at Musee Dezentral believe that NFTs can empower artists, musicians, and creators. The future of art is decentralized.”
If frame selection was done without Chainlink VRF, it’s possible that a tech-savvy person or bot could cheat the process to increase the odds of receiving a rare frame, which would be unfair to the Musee Dezentral community.
Although each of the 222 NFT frames is unique, some frames have rare qualities. In order to help ensure the minting process is fair, the Musee Dezentral team uses Chainlink VRF to generate a provably random number that corresponds to 1 of the 222 frames.
