Another partner Confirmed: Umbrella Network

What are the odds that you didn’t catch us rambling about this Hackathon? We just can’t help ourselves. We will give you just the highlights, promise!

  • It runs from the 7th to the 31st of January;

Now, with this out of the way, let us tell you: this Hackathon somehow just keeps on surpassing our expectations!

If we had a penny for each new amazing partnership in this hackathon… Well, we will not bore you with maths, as we ourselves are losing count.

But now we get to add Umbrella Network!

Why are we excited? We’re so glad you ask, let us tell you all about it.

Umbrella Network is a community-owned Layer 2 oracle network providing secure, low cost, and massively scalable data solutions for blockchain applications. It uses Merkle tree technology to write multiple data points on a single on-chain transaction, making batching data to smart contracts more accurate and cost-effective.

It connects real-world data to the blockchain and allows devs to pull data from theAPI and verify it on-chain with smart contracts.

“ For this hackathon, we’re excited to give game devs a first shot at implementing our newly released Random Number Generator. Random Number Generators are a critical element for a lot of different needs, particularly in blockchain based gaming. As game devs know, randomness supports things like fighting between parties (i.e. damage taken), offering random items in things like lootboxes, for doing things like generating random attributes for NFTs, and much more. Umbrella Network’s uRNG generates random numbers as layer 2 data for faster retrieval, higher throughput, and a smoother user experience. “

Whether it’s data feeds, price feeds, random number generators, or beyond, it’s amazing to see how decentralized oracles can support participants’ visions for their new blockchain games.

What is that we hear? You would like examples? Well, we have examples.

  • PlayMining, a global GameFi and NFT entertainment company, is a recent partner of Umbrella Network using price feeds, you can read about them here and view their price feed on the block explorer.

“The future of Web3 and blockchain gaming depends on being able to handle complex game logic and huge amounts of data with real speed, security, and cost-effectiveness on-chain. It’s crucial to operate at the speed of gaming, with a dedication to trust and transparency. We can’t wait to see what the hackathon participants bring to the table.” John Chen, President, Umbrella Network.
