Lumenswap, a decentralized exchange based on the Stellar blockchain has launched the first-ever decentralized lottery model also built on Stellar. The idea behind creating such a lottery was to provide its community with a fully transparent and fair experience of participating in a decentralized lottery rather than the traditional type.

Lumenswap’s Innovative decentralized lottery

On october 22nd, lumenswap team made an official announcement about kickstarting the first round of Lumenswap decentralized lottery which has already been dubbed as a part of web 3.0 revolutionary plan. This lottery which might look similar to any old-school lottery functions the same way. There is a pre-determined timeframe, a ticket of participation, and a sufficient prize to be won by the winner paid by the Lumenswap team in the end.

But the lumenswap lottery is different from any traditional lottery due to the nature of its prize. The ultimate lottery prize for a lucky winner is pegged to the equivalent value in Stellar token (XLM). Even the ticket used in the lottery is planned to be in a digital form. Once participation closes, the organizers of the lumenswap lottery will choose the winner through a decentralized mechanism. Whereas in other cases, a person is in-charge of making such an important mission.

This would ensure that every participant has an equal chance of winning in this open, fair, and fully transparent digital lottery. All of the steps mentioned above would occur on a distributed network that uses immutable records. To be fair, this is the first time any decentralized project has come forward to create and offer a globally accessible and fair lottery platform using the transparency of blockchain technology.

To get the participation ticket, one must transfer their Lumenswap tokens (LSP) to a particular address manually or using Lumenswap. The hash of that transaction will become the participant’s ticket ID.

For a maximum number of inclusions, the Lumenswap team will be responsible for setting ticket prices for every single round. These ticket prices would also be announced in an article called “Round Introduction”.

How winners will be chosen?
