Apologies for the technical details below! :see_no_evil:

The ballot process relies on a pseudorandom number generator (PRNG) and a predetermined seed. :robot: To summarise from these links:

  • A pseudorandom number generator is an algorithm for generating a sequence of numbers whose properties approximate the properties of sequences of random numbers.
  • The generated sequence is completely determined by a relatively small set of initial values called the seed.

The secret values are combined and used as the pseudorandom number generator’s seed, and therefore determine the outcome of the ballot. :game_die: The pseurorandom number generator is then used to shuffle the list of pledges, which in turn determines which pledges will be successful.
