PBSA Introduces Peerplays RNG
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Peerplays Blockchain Standards Association (PBSA) has introduced the next generation random number generator, Peerplays RNG, which allows both players and operators to verify the randomness of spins, actions, and games.

Peerplays RNG uses Graphene-based blockchain technology to generate a random number from secret hashes. The technology guarantees provable randomness that can be verified in real-time.

Peerplays RNG was designed with the belief that trusting randomness in private code simply was not good enough for the expectations of today’s generation. Utilising the latest blockchain technology to ensure complete and provable randomness, achieved via a distributed ledger interface that generates and stores random numbers on the blockchain, PBSA is confident in the RNG’s ability to transform the world of gaming on a global scale.

“At a time when the online gaming industry is facing something of a trust problem, Peerplays RNG can deliver verifiable randomness designed to show players and operators that games are fair. For too long, random number generation has been considered something of an afterthought by games suppliers. Peerplays RNG delivers a next generation RNG with added functionality that can bring incremental benefits to games suppliers, operators, and their customers,” PBSA said.

“We have already received considerable interest in the product from game developers who believe like we do, that verifiable, trustworthy solutions in games are what this generation of gamers deserve. The first of these innovators will be announcing their partnership in the coming weeks,” PBSA added.
