Randcast Launched on Base: Propelling ARPA Network’s Multi-Ecosystem Advancement

On November 30th, ARPA Randcast was officially launched on Base! This marks the beginning of our expansion into OP Stack chains, and it also aligns with our goal to provide a more immersive experience for developers and users in the realm of fully on-chain games and Autonomous Worlds.

Games can play a crucial role in building a successful public chain ecosystem. However, competing in the on-chain gaming arena requires overcoming several challenges, such as performance limitations, poor game design, and a high entry threshold for new players. One of the main issues that contribute to these challenges is the lack of reliable and developer-friendly tools. Randcast is strategically positioned to address some of these problems by offering effective and user-friendly on-chain randomness oracle solutions.

ARPA Guide: Cryptography 101

Have you always wanted to learn more about Cryptography? In this opinion piece published on November 20th, we delve into the fascinating world of cryptography, an age-old practice of sending secret messages that have evolved significantly over the centuries. From its origins dating back to ancient Egypt and India, where philosophers recognized the value of concealed messages, to the rudimentary Caesar cipher, cryptography has come a long way. While classical ciphers relied on simple substitution techniques and were susceptible to decryption with enough time and effort, modern cryptography, which emerged around 1970, has ushered in a new era of complex encryption methods. With technological advancements, public key encryption systems now allow for secure communication by sharing encryption keys widely while keeping decryption keys private. Today, cryptography plays a crucial role in various applications, from blockchain technology to end-to-end encryption and hash functions, ensuring the protection of information in an increasingly interconnected world.

ARPA CTO Spoke at Komorebi Hacker House Event

On November 17th, our CTO participated in a hacker house event hosted by Komorebi and sponsored by ARPA Network. The event brought together leading projects in the fields of Autonomous World and Fully-On-Chain-Game. In this event , builders from IOSG, Starknet foundation, Optimism, and Mask Network, among others, shared and discussed ideas related to what they were building. With collaborations and sharing happening between builders, we can expect new breakthroughs sooner rather than later.

ARPA Hosted Istanbul Nightopia

On November 16th, ARPA hosted Istanbul Nightopia with CyberConnect, DWFLabs, DODO, and EthSign. Held at an event venue with a rooftop view of the Bosphorus, Istanbul Nightopia connected community leaders, KOLs, leading projects in Autonomous Worlds, DeFi and Web3 Venture Capitalists. A big thank you to our sponsors, Bella Protocol, Particle Network, Delysium, and Owlto. With a live band, breathtaking view and top projects, Istanbul Nightopia gave all attendees a night to remember.

ARPA Co-Hosted AW Day With AW Research

On November 14th, ARPA co-hosted AW Day with AW Research. AW Day was one of the biggest Autonomous Worlds events held during Devconnect, bringing together leading builders, projects and venture capitalists in this field. AW Day featured panel discussions around exciting topics, such as Fully-On-Chain-Games, Tooling & Infrastructure, World Building, and AW Ventures.

In addition to the panel discussions, projects gave demos of their products and new releases. There were several exciting new developments, including game features and infrastructure tools, that got us excited about the future of Autonomous Worlds. One highlight was the demonstration of Randcast by our BD Lead, Jason Zhao, to all the attendees at the event. This helped to increase awareness of Randcast among fully on-chain game builders.

Check out this Twitter thread by AW Research compiling the exciting developments that were unveiled on AW Day. A big thank you to Starkware network, Adventure Gold DAO, Particle Network, and DODO for sponsoring this event.

ARPA Released Randcast Playground and Hosted Lucky Draw

On November 10th, we released the Randcast Playground, our latest demo that showcases the on-chain verifiable randomness oracle. This release makes on-chain randomness easily accessible to the user. With Randcast Playground, users can execute commands such as “draw” to select lucky draw winners and “cast” to roll a D6 die. Watch the video of a lucky draw using this tool, or try it out yourself at

CoinDesk Publishes Felix’s Opinion Article: In Crypto’s Autonomous Worlds, Creators Are Architects and Users Are Stakeholders

In an opinion piece published on CoinDesk on October 31st, ARPA CEO Felix Xu delved into the shortcomings of Web 2.0 and the re-emerging challenges associated with centralization. He underscored the adverse effects of the extraction model on various stakeholders, including users, businesses, developers, and creators. This model often led to limited revenue-sharing opportunities and the constant threat of deplatforming.

He also emphasized the pivotal shift towards decentralized Autonomous Worlds as a solution, where digital ecosystems operate independently under transparent parameters, enabling true user agency and unmediated creator-consumer interactions. In these novel environments, the distinction between creators and consumers blurs, fostering collaborative, community-driven content creation and equitable profit distribution. Autonomous Worlds not only embody the essence of Web 3.0 but also promise a return to the internet’s collaborative roots, empowering users to architect their digital experiences.

About ARPA

ARPA Network (ARPA) is a decentralized secure computation network built to improve the fairness, security, and privacy of blockchains. ARPA threshold BLS signature network serves as the infrastructure of verifiable Random Number Generator (RNG), secure wallet, cross-chain bridge, and decentralized custody across multiple blockchains.

ARPA was previously known as ARPA Chain, a privacy-preserving Multi-party Computation (MPC) network founded in 2018. ARPA Mainnet has completed over 224,000 computation tasks in the past years. Our experience in MPC and other cryptography laid the foundation for our innovative threshold BLS signature schemes (TSS-BLS) system design and led us to today’s ARPA Network.

Randcast, a verifiable Random Number Generator (RNG), is the first application that leverages ARPA as infrastructure. Randcast offers a cryptographically generated random source with superior security and low cost compared to other solutions. Metaverse, game, lottery, NFT minting and whitelisting, key generation, and blockchain validator task distribution can benefit from Randcast’s tamper-proof randomness.
