League of Entropy

Decentralized Randomness Beacon

The League of Entropy is a collaborative project to provide a verifiable, decentralized randomness beacon. A decentralized randomness beacon combines randomness from multiple independent high entropy sources to generate a truly unbiased random number for anyone that may need a public source of randomness. Please visit the project site at drand.love for the most up-to-date information on current operations.

What is the League of Entropy?

The League of Entropy is a consortium of organizations that are working together to produce a truly random beacon.

This is the first time that a randomness beacon has been run by several organizations in concert. Every other existing randomness beacon is generated by an individual entity. This means that an adversary needs to only take control of one party to tamper with randomness. The founding members Cloudflare, École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, Kudelski Security, Protocol Labs, and the University of Chile created the first unbiased beacon that can be cryptographically verified, an industry first. As more members join the League of Entropy, the guarantees grow stronger as any biasing attempt becomes significantly more difficult.

The League

The League of Entropy currently comprises the following organizations:

  • ChainSafe
  • cLabs
  • Cloudflare
  • C4DT
  • EPFL
  • Emerald Onion
  • Ethereum Foundation
  • Kudelski Security
  • Protocol Labs
  • PTisp
  • QRL Foundation
  • Tierion
  • University of Chile
  • UCL
  • StorSwift
  • IPFSForce

  • Automata Network

It also includes contributions from Nicolas Gailly, Philipp Jovanovic, and Ludovic Barman.

The League is not exclusive. If your organization would like to participate, send us an email to leagueofentropy@googlegroups.com and we'll get back to you.
