Randomizer VRF roadmap update: Arbitrum Sepolia and zkSync Era
An overview of the upcoming updates for Randomizer
After a busy October for Randomizer on Arbitrum Nova, we’d like to update our developer community on our plans for the planned deployment of Randomizer Edge on zkSync Era and Polygon zkEVM, as well as our planned testnet deployment to Arbitrum Sepolia.
We're also introducing a new feature to Randomizer VRF, allowing you to reduce gas down to just 1/3rd!

Launching on Arbitrum Sepolia
Due to the Goerli testnet being sunset, we are currently in the process of deploying Randomizer to the Arbitrum Sepolia testnet. An update with the contract address wil be released shortly on our Discord.
Randomizer Edge for zkSync and zkEVM
Originally, we had planned to launch Randomizer Edge, the specialized version of Randomizer for zkEVMs, built on a new P2P protocol (and saving 80% gas), by the end of October 2023. However, we were unable to reach an auditable state of the protocol before this deadline, and due to Randomizer’s lead developer, Deanpress, having begun his relocation, the deployment of the smart contract has been postponed for a few weeks.
We remain committed to bringing Randomizer Edge to the zkSync and zkEVM community as soon as possible.
Gas savings with Single-Source VRF
In our continuous effort to enhance developer experience and efficiency, we're excited to share our work a single-source VRF feature within the Randomizer smart contract.
This feature allows smart contracts to optionally obtain VRF callbacks from a single beacon, rather than from 3 beacons, allowing Randomizer to offer the cheapest possible on-chain VRF callbacks alongside its highly secure and unpredictable VRF.
The advantage here is a significant reduction in gas fees – down to one-third of the regular multi-source Randomizer VRF gas.
This feature will be particularly beneficial for smart contracts that require rapid access to many RNG values, at a lower cost. However, for less frequent transactions, or transactions that involve large financial settlements, we still recommend using Randomizer’s standard multi-source VRF. The multi-source VRF provides an added layer of security and unpredictability, crucial for maintaining the highest standards of safety in high-stake transactions.
We appreciate your continued support and understanding during this phase of growth and transition. Stay tuned for more updates as we forge ahead, bringing groundbreaking solutions to the world of randomness.
Randomizer VRF is a pioneering random number protocol, currently making waves on Arbitrum and with plans to expand to zkSync and Polygon zkEVM. Our mission is to provide secure, efficient, and innovative random number generation solutions to the blockchain community.
