Unity is a world-renowned company in the gaming sector. The company produces gaming engines used by major games worldwide. The Danish parent company Unity Technologies ApS has now applied for a patent for a blockchain solution that provides digital objects with a unique ID.
The patent was revealed through documents from the US Patent and Trade Brand Office. It is described as follows; “There is no current solution for assigning objects a unique identifier, which allows change transfer, trade or connection to the location.” Furthermore, the patent shows that it is not possible to share objects across platforms, users, and applications.
Enjin, a blockchain based gaming platform for Gaming, released a Software Development Kit (SDK) that allows developers to create and integrate ERC155 tokens on the Ethereum network this week.
ERC155 is a standard developed by Enjin in collaboration with Ethereum. This standard allows developers to provide an infinite amount of objects unique identifiers through a single smart contract.
It is said that Enjin and Unity are working together on such a solution.
Cool – but what does this really mean?
Trading digital objects with such identifiers between users create some interesting opportunities. This means that digital objects players acquire, whether it be a sword, a FUT card or other, can have a real value that can easily be transferred between players. The compensation comes in the form of tokens, which can easily be exchanged to Fiat currency such as USD or EUR.
