Raffle Randomness

Here's a breakdown on how winners are selected for our XP Store raffles.

We are using this ISAAC CSPRNG implementation

This is a cryptographically secure pseudo random number generator, which is deterministic when a seed is provided. (Learn More)

The Process

1) We Fetch the raffle entries ordered by date ascending and store them in an array.
2) We get the current (latest) Ethereum block hash and use it as a seed.
3) We get a random integer with a range from 0 to (array length - 1).
4) We use that number as the index of the entries array and select the winner.
5) If more winners are required for the raffle, we remove all of the current winner's entries from the entries array as to not select the same winner twice.
6) We repeat the process until we have the required number of winners
