Sony Files a Blockchain and NFT-Related Patent

Sony has a new patent that will allow them to track changes in ownership, metadata, and visual appearance of digital assets.

These assets could be moments of gameplay, in-game characters, or items.

According to the patent, Sony can track the history of the in-game items and see all its previous owners.

They want to use a blockchain to record these items and include a token with a unique identifier.

Last year, PlayStation (owned by Sony) filed this patent before gamers started losing their minds about gaming NFTs.

Still, Sony and PlayStation have played around with NFTs in the last few months.

During the EVO 2022 event, Sony asked fans what kinds of NFTs they would want to buy.

Also, Sony partnered with Theta Labs to launch an NFT collection.

PlayStation has its own Stars rewards program that features digital collectibles.

The company has said that these items "are not NFTs" because you can't trade them.

But with the new patent, it looks like Sony plans to explore and experiment on the blockchain.

This is ultra bullish for the blockchain gaming space because Sony is one of the biggest game publishers.
