Elevating Blockchain Security and Web3 Gaming Experience with Ancient8 and ARPA

We are excited to announce our partnership with ARPA, a leader in the world of permissionless threshold signature services. This collaboration signifies a big step forward in our efforts to find innovative solutions for the challenges of securing decentralized systems. As we start this joint venture, the combined expertise of Ancient8 and ARPA converges to establish a robust framework, ushering in a future where blockchain security reaches unprecedented levels of resilience and trust.

Understanding ARPA’s Core Properties

ARPA, recognized for its efficiency in the blockchain space, is a permissionless threshold signature service provider. At the core of its network lies the Threshold BLS Signature Scheme (TSS-BLS), showcasing properties that make it an outstanding solution in the blockchain security domain.

  • Decentralization: ARPA achieves decentralization, allowing anyone to participate in the network and reinforcing its strength, tamper-proof nature, and reliability.
  • Flexibility: Users of ARPA enjoy the flexibility to customize signature policies based on specific computing functionalities and security levels required for different blockchain applications.
  • Non-interactivity: ARPA introduces a non-interactivity model, eliminating the requirement for all involved node groups to be online simultaneously. This ensures lower latency and higher throughput.
  • Verifiability: ARPA emphasizes verifiability, crucial in scenarios such as NFT minting and whitelisting, where end users must be able to verify that the results are not manipulated.

Randcast: ARPA’s First Application

Envisioning a fair, secure, and privacy-preserving blockchain ecosystem, ARPA facilitates developers in building applications involving on-chain verifiable randomness generation, secure key management, anonymous transactions, cross-chain messaging and quorum approval. The introduction of Randcast, a decentralized, efficient, and verifiable randomness generator, serves as a cornerstone for various applications, including metaverse gaming, lotteries, NFT minting, key generation, and blockchain validator task distribution.

How Ancient8 and ARPA Amplify Each Other's Capabilities

  • Improved Security: Ancient8 strengthens its gaming infrastructure by teaming up with ARPA's secure signature services. ARPA's advanced security aligns well with Ancient8's commitment to safe Smart Accounts, making the gaming environment more tamper-proof.
  • Flexible Customization: ARPA's adaptable signature services and ARPA Randcast's ready-made randomness functionalities empower Ancient8 to customize Smart Accounts for various scenarios. This flexibility ensures a versatile and user-friendly gaming experience tailored to different needs.
  • Faster and Efficient Transactions: ARPA's system, working without all nodes simultaneously, enhances Ancient8's focus on speed. This collaboration ensures rapid and cost-effective transactions, providing users with a smoother gaming experience.
  • Transparency and Fair Outcomes: ARPA Randcast’s emphasis on verifiability suits Ancient8's commitment to transparency. Together, they create a gaming ecosystem where users can trust and verify outcomes like blockchain achievements and ownership confirmation.
  • Decentralized Identity Verification: ARPA's privacy-preserving computation solutions enhance Ancient8's vision for a decentralized gaming environment. This partnership supports secure and private identity verification, building trust within the gaming community.

In summary, Ancient8 and ARPA's collaboration creates a synergistic partnership, combining strengths to innovate, enhance security, and prioritize user-friendly solutions in the web3 gaming.

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.
