As an example, Sony cites the unique appearance of an in-game character in the form of NFT, which can be used in other video games and even across different gaming platforms. The company’s patent allows for the possibility of exchanging and reselling NFTs on the secondary market.

Another example of the use of NFTs in a video game describes access to unique in-game items. For example, a player who defeats a boss in a game gains the right to use a rare weapon by owning a unique NFT. Also, with the help of a non-fungible token, Sony offers to monetize the experience of the characters. The company first applied for a patent back in May 2021, but it only became publicly known the other day, VGC notes.
The company that owns the rights to the Pokémon brand, The Pokémon Company, is also interested in non-fungible tokens. It was previously revealed that the company is looking for a new corporate director with NFT and metaverse skills. The candidate must have a “deep knowledge” of Web3, including blockchain, NFTs, and the metaverse.
In addition, the future top manager must have connections in the venture capital market with an emphasis on Web3, the vacancy notes. For what exactly the candidate needs knowledge in the field of NFT / metaverses, the company did not specify. The Pokémon Company offers a successful candidate a salary in the region of $150,000 to $224,000 per year.
- Despite the rapid decline in market activity around NFTs, investors in the crypto market predict a great future for digital collections based on the Bitcoin blockchain. Venture capital firm Galaxy Digital predicts Bitcoin-NFT capitalization will rise to $4.5 billion by 2025.
