Many applications created on Ethereum (dapps) require some form of randomness. The current methods of generating a random number usually involve some form of manipulation of numbers generated by block headers. This presents a number of security challenges.

StarkWare is sponsoring two events focused on Ethereum Randomness.

  1. Hack the Randomness - a hacking event where we work with the community to outline security issues associated with current methods of randomness used in Ethereum dapps today.
  2. Stark-Powered random number generator accelerator - we will be working with dapp teams to implement Proof-of-Concepts and beyond using the StarkWare random number generator, VeeDo.

There will be cash prizes (details and dates will be published soon).
