Chainlink VRF (Verifiable Random Function) is the blockchain industry standard for tamper-proof, publicly auditable on-chain randomness. As such, VRF powers over 400 projects in the Chainlink ecosystem, including NFT collections created by sports and movie stars like LaMelo Ball and Val Kilmer.
Such high-profile, multitiered NFT collections aim to ensure all collectors have a fair shot at minting a rare, top-tier NFT. Because Chainlink VRF delivers randomness on-chain with cryptographic proof, users don’t have to trust in the collection’s creator or any third-party randomizer to fairly distribute NFTs.
This week, UNXD, a curated luxury NFT marketplace, announced that its DGFamily Glass Box NFT collection, a collaboration with Dolce & Gabbana, is integrating Chainlink VRF to reveal three tiers of NFTs that entitle collectors to exclusive digital and physical fashion drops and experiences.
All Glass Boxes purchases during the DGFamily NFT sale will be revealed, in ascending order of rarity, as either Black, Gold, or Platinum, with the latter offering access to the rarest drops and intimate offsite events as “the pinnacle of the DGFamily community.”
Chainlink VRF will generate a unique random number that determines each NFT’s tier so that every collector has an equal opportunity to own the most coveted Platinum Box.
All 5,000 DGFamily Box NFTs are designed in the classic Italian Carretto style. Upon reveal, 4,250 will be Black, 675 will be Gold, and 75 will be Platinum.
In an official statement, the UNXD team said integrating Chainlink VRF is paramount to pushing the industry forward as a web3 company.
“In short, using Chainlink VRF will help us provide users with automated and publicly verifiable proof directly on-chain that the random reveal of DGFamily Glass Boxes is provably fair and cannot be tampered with or predicted by the oracle, outside entities, or the UNXD and Dolce&Gabbana teams.”
