Gaming testing laboratory BMM Testlabs announced Friday that Chainlink VRF, a blockchain standard for verifiable randomness in gaming and NFTs, has received the GLI-19 compliance certification.
Chainlink VRF (Verifiably Random Function) is the blockchain industry’s most widely adopted random number generator (RNG), enabling smart contracts to access random values without compromising security or usability, BMM said in a press release.

VRF is used for minting NFTs, randomizing in-game features, and more. Since it first launched, VRF has served a cumulative 7.9 million randomness requests. VRF V2 launched in February this year, reducing transaction fees and “empowering smart contract developers to build the next wave of provably fair and scalable NFT and gaming applications.”

Maria Romero, Business Development Manager for iGaming at BMM Testlabs, commented: “As one of the first certifications in the blockchain industry, BMM is paving the way for companies developing blockchain-based gaming solutions to become certified in a secure and compliant way that was previously unavailable.”
“By using this certified random number generator for iGaming applications, developers can rely on the security best practices built into the Chainlink VRF offering,” BMM said in a press release. This ensures that the randomness is both verifiable and tamper-proof using a trust-minimized approach, reducing the potential for human error.
