For many people, talking about NFTs means uploaded “jpeg images” that you can buy and translate for a profit. However, the current hype and adoption surrounding digital art and collections has opened up a host of new possibilities and use cases for NFTs beyond imagery and art.
One of the most notable use cases for NFTs that has gotten a lot of attention lately is accessing the metadata store. So let’s take a look at how the metastore and NFTs are related and what happens in the store.
What is NFT and what is the Metaverse?
An NFT is a digital token that resides on the blockchain to record proof of ownership for the person holding it. Each token is completely unique because it has its own unique metadata that can never be copied or replaced with another.
The Metaverse is a three-dimensional virtual world, an online-existing space where you can do virtually anything you do in the physical world without the limitations of the real world. A world where you can have social interactions, have professional meetings, relax and shop. virtual worlds they even have a kind of economy of their own.
Those of you who watched James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’ might have an idea of what a virtual 3D alternate universe might look like with a little bit of Sci-Fi twist. You ‘connect’ to a device (in our case, wearable VR gear like Oculus) and then find yourself in a virtual world of endless possibilities.
Transparent and Fair Economy
Blockchain-based metadata centers need to be decentralized so that everyone is well represented and can enjoy a full experience. This means that items for sale, online objects, and even online real estate must be owned, sold, and transferred within the metadata warehouse without any oversight or permission from any central leadership or organization. NFTs will help everyone gain true ownership of digital objects and likewise, the concept of NFTs giving ownership of digital goods will streamline transactions in the metadatabase.
Not only that, NFTs will also help with the concept of metaverse gaming. With new crypto-economic models emerging, such as the play-to-win game model, the role of NFTs in the metadatabase will become more apparent. Players can use NFTs increase metaverse participation through the game. Also, win-win games give players full ownership and control of assets, ensuring a fair gaming experience.
For example, axis infinity, currently the largest game project in space, and also one of the largest NFT projects. Pokémon-like axes are adopted, trained and fought in the game. On the chain, each Axie is represented by an NFT. Axes represented by NFTs become more powerful as they gain experience and, as a result, more valuable.
In Axie Infinity, players fight and interact with each other. Axie Infinity is essentially a virtual environment where people around the world can communicate and interact via digital elements – a likeness to the metaverse.
In the Metaverse, partying, networking, or just meeting new people seems interesting even though we haven’t gotten to that bridge yet. NFTs offer community members, creators, and a better way for buyers and sellers to connect.
It is difficult to design social events without commercial infrastructure – for example, an office building for a meeting, an admission ticket for an event, etc. must. NFTs can make it easier for businesses to social encounters in the metaverse due to immutable public immutability property records.
Just like how a central financial institution tracks money and ensures that real fiat currency exists; NFTs will play a similar role in a more decentralized metadatabase.
Consider a device that could be called your passport, wallet and investment portfolio. NFTs would have the ability to take on the same role as this fictitious gadget. metaverse scales, focusing on your digital avatar, your metaverse wallet, and the digital art you own. Due to the immutability of the blockchain, NFTs will prevent identity theft and data manipulation in the metadata store.
Despite this, the metaverse is still in its early stages of development. Integrating NFTs opens up a multitude of social and economic options, allowing users to play, work, socialize, interact, trade and profit in brand new ways.
