This month, decentralized island project Satoshi Island joins forces with Chainlink for its debut Citizenship NFTs. The digital assets will offer exclusive perks to all holders, all related to the private island in Vanuatu.
In fact, the drop is a first step towards the project’s core goal: to turn Satoshi Island into the crypto capital of the world.
An insight into the Citizenship NFTs
In short, Satoshi Island will drop 21,000 Citizenship NFTs divided into 21 editions with Chainlink VRF integration. Editions 2-21 have different background colors. Meanwhile, the first edition NFTs features exclusive island images, colors, and other traits.
Of course, the release is a major step forward for the South Pacific-based project. Satoshi Island aims to become an ultra-modern city for crypto experts and enthusiasts alike.
The Citizenship NFT rarity system is essential for the project’s development. Nevertheless, the founders had to assure a fair launch for all collectors. It’s even more important since there are over 50,000 applicants wanting to live on Satoshi Island!
This has been the main reason why Satoshi Island chose to partner with Chainlink.
Satoshi Island teamed up with Chainlink to integrate its Verifiable Random Function (VRF) into the minting process. The innovative system uses a pre-committed private key to combine block data. Then, the program generates a random number along with cryptographic proof. Notably, the Citizenship NFTs smart contracts only accept the generated number if there’s a valid cryptographic proof.
As a result, Chainlink VRF allows collectors to mint Citizenship NFTs in a fair, safe manner.
“Chainlink VRF is integral to ensure the transparency and fairness of our Citizenship NFT minting process,” explains Satoshi Island Developer James Law. “The tamper-proof RNG with on-chain proof helps provide our community with the transparency it demands. Ultimately, we aim to create a truly democratic blockchain-based governance system for our island, making a verifiably fair NFT mint is a crucial first step.”
