# Entropy Generation
Paralink provides hardware based source of entropy for use in smart contracts.
Unlike the real world data ingress, the entropy generation is a trusted service. We believe that having stronger guarantee of true randomness from inherently stochastic, natural processes is more valuable than a quorum based, potentially weakly seeded pseudo-random process.
Paralink Entropy as a service can also be used as a seeding mechanism for 3rd party PRNG's.
