Xiaomi, one of the biggest mobile phone and tech companies in the world, has introduced a patent that implements blockchain technology for the creation of its own virtual characters. The patent, introduced in China, mentions that the creation of these characters will be randomized thanks to the introduction of a gene sequence, responsible for determining the looks of the character.
In the patent, the company established that their own virtual characters will be generated using different gene sequences, which will be used to determine the images that will identify these characters. The method determines that each one of the characters will be unique and unpredictable. This method might be leveraged by Xiaomi to create its own metaverse experience in the future, though no statements have been made about this.
The part that mentions blockchain in the patent has to do with the storage of the created character. According to the filing, the characters would use this decentralized ledger technology to store their gene sequences, so the unique combination is preserved against destruction. While the patent does not mention NFTs, the description it makes about the usage of blockchain hints at the utilization of this or other, similar technology.
