Xiaomi Introduces Blockchain in Character Generation Patent

More and more industries are including blockchain in their new products due to its decentralized and immutable characteristics. Xiaomi, a Chinese company known for its cellphones and gadgets, has unveiled a patent filing that includes blockchain in the process of generating its virtual characters. The patent, titled “Virtual character processing method, device and storage medium”, which was filed in January 2022, was recently disclosed by the company.

In the patent, the company has established that its own virtual characters will be generated using different gene sequences, which will be used to determine the images that will identify these characters. The process determines that each of the characters will be unique and unpredictable. This method could be leveraged by Xiaomi to create its own metaverse experience in the future, although no statement has been made about this.

The part that mentions the blockchain in the patent concerns the storage of the created character. According to the file, the characters would use this decentralized ledger technology to store their gene sequences, so that the unique combination would be preserved from destruction. Although the patent does not mention NFTs, its description of the use of blockchain hints at the use of this technology or another similar technology.

However, this is only a patent application, and the application of the concept is still pending. Some have speculated about the possibility of Xiaomi launching its own metaverse platform with these virtual characters as the main attraction, but there have been no official statements on the subject. However, if that happens, it wouldn’t be the first time that Xiaomi has flirted with the world of crypto. In 2018, the brand launched its first collection of NFTs, which it called Crypto Rabbits. However, the project was dropped in March due to low popularity, according to local sources.
