We are excited to introduce you to the DinoX Lottery / Raffle system, which will be going live on our Portal on August 17th at 4pm UTC. You will be able to find it under the category “Lottery” in the main menu.
The DinoX Lottery is a weighted chance raffle event, where randomness and fairness is provided by ChainLink VRF. Each user is able to put in as many Lottery tickets as they have available on their DinoX Wallets.
The lottery will be open for 72 hours and closes on August 20th at 4pm UTC. We will then do a live draw to announce the winners. These winners will then be shown on the DinoX Portal and, at the same time, the list of winners and their positions in the draw will be marked in the blockchain for verification.
Selection of the winners will happen inside the contract of the lottery system by the mechanism called “weighted chances”, meaning chances of winning are split evenly through all the tickets included in the lottery contract. Therefore, users with more tickets entered will have a slight advantage for the chance of winning. Although, every ticket entered has a chance to be a winning lottery ticket.
Once the winners are selected, all the tickets that participated in that lottery are then burned.
Moving forward, the lottery will open every Friday at 4pm UTC for 72 hours and the draw will occur every Monday, at 4pm UTC.
There will be 20 winners of the first lottery draft, and there will be multiple prizes to be won. Each winning entry is going to get one of the following:
What are DinoX Lottery Tickets
The DinoX Lottery tickets are the first available DNXI items. As stated in our whitepaper and explained through the articles, DNXI are erc1155 standard, meaning that tokens of a certain ID can be of multiple amounts. And our DNXI tokens are available on Polygon network to lower the need of users paying high gas fees.
In the future, when there will be a smart development on bridging erc721 and erc1155, there’s a chance you will be able to use these tokens cross-chain. For now, they will only be available on Polygon.
Lottery tickets serve only this one specific purpose: they are to be used in the lottery system. Although, as all tokens, they are transferable and tradable. You can find the existing list of DNXI (only lottery tickets of the time of publishing this article) on this OpenSea link:
