Bullish sentiment for 2022 on High Performance Blockchain (HPB)

High Performance Blockchain (HPB) could finally be in a position to realize the potential that many industry experts predicted for the chain back in 2018. The HPB chain is a layer 1, main-net Ethereum EVM-compatible chain, but it's unique feature is that it combines dedicated, custom-developed blockchain hardware, with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) software.

The custom hardware, known as the "Blockchain Offload Engine" (BOE) accelerator card, is in some ways similar to a computer graphics card, only the BOE card was developed from the ground-up by HPB CEO Xiaoming Wang, to specifically run the HPB blockchain network. It is currently the only blockchain the world to fuse hardware and software in this way.

The BOE card is what allows HPB to run at 5000tps (transactions per second) when compared to the Ethereum Network which runs at 15tps.

In addition, the associated "Gas" fees with the HPB chain are around $0.0001 per transaction, compared to Ethereum's $50 per transaction at certain times of the year.

HPB is faster, cheaper and more eco-friendly than Ethereum, utilizing a Proof of Performance (PoP) consensus mechanism, but the real jewel in the crown is the "Hardware Random Number Generator" , referred to as HRNG.

The reason people in the industry are becoming so bullish on HPB right now is because many industry experts predict that "GameFi" will be the next big thing in blockchain. Gaming, with connections to blockchain, is estimated to be worth $55 Billion USD in 2022 according to - One of the elements critical to the success of GameFi, is the ability to harness PROVABLE random numbers, which are used to allow games to be completely non-deterministic and unbiased.

Up until now, blockchains have typically used "pseudo" random number generators (PRNG) which are flawed. They used a seed value to generate random numbers, and these random numbers are based on mathematical calculations and algorithms. The issue with this type of mechanism, is that if someone knows what the seed algorithm is, then they can ultimately deduce the "random" number derived from it. Quite simply, users could not trust a platform where the random numbers are not truly random.

There is room for misuse with this type of pseudo random number generator, and it is part of the reason why games, casinos and lotteries have struggled to make an impact thus far in the blockchain industry.

HPB aims to solve this issue with HRNG which is known as a "True" random number generator (TRNG) as instead of deriving random numbers from a software-calculated seed value, it derives its seed value from the BOE accelerator card hardware. TRNG's can only be certified as provably fair if the seed value comes from naturally-occurring phenomena. High Performance Blockchain use their BOE card to monitor tiny micro-voltage fluctuations (down to 0.0001 volt) on the ever-changing power-draw of the BOE card, and then use an analog-to-digital hardware chip to convert those values into a 256-bit hexadecimal string. This constantly-changing string is then used as the seed value to generate truly provable random numbers.

Better still, the random numbers can be generated for free by software developers wishing to develop DApps on the HPB chain. Unlike competitor oracle solutions such as Chainlink (LINK) VRF, which can cost up to 0.2 LINK tokens per random number called (approximately $5 in early 2022), the HPB HRNG supplies the provable random numbers at every 6-second block for free.

This could revolutionize the blockchain industry, and DApp developers will be looking to take advantage of HPB random numbers as the GameFi sector matures.

In addition, HPB are now making strides to provide the necessary developer tool-sets that DApp developers come to expect, and they are also developing a decentralized Random Load-Balanced (RLB) crypto bridge to connect to other EVM chains including Polygon, Binance Smart chain, Avalanche, Fantom, Tron and others.

To put some perspective into upside potential of the HPB project, the current MCAP of High Performance Blockchain is £3 Million USD - It is a layer 1 main-net blockchain and the only chain in the world to fuse hardware (BOE card) with software. This is in comparison to a layer 2 sidechain such as Polygon which cannot generate TRNG random numbers on chain, and has a current MCAP of £11 Billion USD - So in effect, HPB would need to 4000x in value to reach parity with a chain that many blockchain technical experts believe to be an inferior chain to HPB.

HPB is also running a hackathon competition on DevPost in May, inviting developers from all around the world to come and try out the chain. The HPB Global Telegram community have never been this bullish.
