Our core game mechanics, such as breeding, race matching and rewards distribution will be fully on-chain. Given the complexity of and the need for constant contracts interaction, we need to ensure an instant and efficient full stack scaling solution. There are dozens of solutions on the market today, but we have some very good reasons for selecting Polygon:
- Interoperability. Polygon is the leading platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development.
- Scalability and performance. Polygon ensures instant and deterministic transactions with low expenses.
- Developer friendly ecosystem. Polygon offers an extremely flexible bridge and new powerful developer tools are released regularly.
- Maturity. Polygon is a mature, well-tested and proven solution that has all of its “teething problems” already ironed out.
- Eco-friendly. Polygon blockchain allows each interaction within Roach Racing Club to have a low carbon footprint.
These are the main reasons we’ve chosen Polygon to provide the best blockchain gaming experience.
Roach Racing Club gaming experience is dependent on data flows and in order to achieve a fully transparent and trusted source of data we integrate Chainlink oracles.
- By integrating Chainlink VRF, we now have access to a tamper-proof and verifiable source of randomness needed to fairly distribute randomized traits during our genesis drop and in-game Roach breeding.
- We are integrating Chainlink oracles into our core game mechanic, which we call the ‘Dynamic Universe’. We believe dynamic game settings powered by real-world data will provide a rather exciting experience than programmed pseudo-randomness. We connect race results with real-world data feeds and eventually we envision multiple dynamic gameplay aspects that allow users to compete for the best strategies, defined by which a unique roach can have better race results in rain or snow, or during seasons such as summer or winter, bear or bull market conditions.
We have selected Chainlink because it’s based on cutting-edge academic research, supported by time-tested oracle infrastructure, and secured through the generation and on-chain verification of cryptographic proofs that prove the integrity of each random number supplied to smart contracts. Chainlink currently secures tens of billions of dollars across DeFi, insurance, gaming and other major industries, and offers global enterprises and leading data providers a universal gateway to all blockchains.
