Sony Publishes Patent To Monitor Digital Assets In Games
Global entertainment powerhouse Sony submitted a patent application in 2021 for a system that uses blockchain technology, more particularly, NFTs, to monitor digital assets in video games. On November 10, 2022, the patent became public.
Sony intends to use a distributed ledger, or blockchain, to store digital media assets, gameplay, and video clips and to include a special token for the digital item with a special identifier and metadata that would identify the properties of the digital asset, according to the application.
Even though the application is only for a patent, it demonstrates Sony’s interest in participating in the expanding NFT gaming market. The company stated:
“Changes to properties of the digital asset, such as ownership, visual appearance, or metadata, can be identified in a request to update the history. A new block can be generated for, and appended to, the distributed ledger identifying the changes to the history of the digital asset. The new block can include hashes of previous blocks.”
Sony’s pursuit of NFTs is not new, as seen by this patent. As Coincu reported, Sony Music had filed for trademarks linked to NFT and the metaverse in September.
