Smart Contracts in Metaverse: A Closer Look

3 mins read

Modern developments have paved the path for technological changes at an accelerated rate. This digital world has seen advancements and innovations that were never imagined before.

Innovating segments of technology we got to see concepts of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality which further facilitated the emergence of the Metaverse, a virtual universe that is much more than only an interconnected web of the virtual world.

Apart from AR and VR, many technologies have contributed to setting the base for establishing a metaverse like Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Blockchain, etc. thus, making it a pioneering innovation of the digital age.

There are many new and revolutionary projects undertaken and launched concerning Blockchain, NFT, Crypto, and Metaverse, including a decentralized metaverse that is predicted to drive businesses with a myriad of benefits.

Blockchain in Metaverse is one of the most workable use cases of Metaverse where blockchain and its aspects provide decentralization of the virtual world where digital entities and assets will have no intermediary control, improved governance, interoperability, and much more.

Furthermore, the demand for smart-contract-enabled platforms is high as smart contract-capable blockchains are seen to improve and enhance many metaverse aspects.

Metaverse Smart Contracts

The metaverse smart contract is like any other smart contract in the metaverse that is there to automate operations in Blockchain and ensure that metaverse functions or events are carried out with secure transactions that transpire as per the set rules and standards.

In the metaverse, smart contracts are essential as in their essence they enable the application/platform to trigger actions only when some predefined conditions are met, thus, providing high-end security to user data and digital assets

Minting an NFT smart contract for NFTs within a metaverse is also considered a metaverse smart contract.

Does Metaverse Need Smart Contracts?

Since the metaverse is the virtual depiction of the real world, activities run in the real world are possible to be done in the metaverse. Trading and exchange, music, gaming, crypto, and NFTs, all are feasible aspects of a metaverse.

“Smart Contracts are fundamental to storing records and converting them into
immutable on-chain data.”

As smart contracts have many practical use cases and applications implemented within business projects, likewise, metaverse smart contracts are needed to regulate the trade and exchange in the metaverse with robust authenticity and transparency.

Supporting the blockchain systems in the metaverse, smart contracts will ensure that transactions and transfers are automated, operated, and executed according to the predefined rules that ensure the safety and privacy of the metaverse users and their digital assets within the virtual space.

Smart contracts regulate blockchain-powered solutions and because of the decentralized nature of the blockchain petitions, metaverse smart contracts are the most relevant and viable to encourage transaction expendability. And this proves that the role of smart contracts is integral in the decentralized metaverse.

Decentralized Metaverse Potentially Solves Major Challenges of the Centralized Metaverse

Certainly, a centralized metaverse will be governed by an authority where users have to get permission and submit their data to enter the metaverse. Additionally, the interactions will be limited to the horizon of a single metaverse and won’t be able to connect with users of the parallel metaverse and its activities.

A decentralized metaverse on the flip potentially addresses the interoperability issues by creating an open-source space that facilitates interconnected virtual worlds regulated through smart contracts.

With enhanced security provided by the smart contracts, users will be able to enjoy cross-metaverse trading without any fear of compliance or data loss, in a blockchain-powered metaverse, users can decide governance, have asset control and decision-making power, and will be able to perform all crucial roles via smart contracts.

Metaverse Smart Contract Development

Develop smart contract metaverse following the development process that includes:

Create a bug-free workflow for your smart contracts as a single error can destroy the entire service of a smart contract and make data vulnerable to exploitation. Building a strong architecture for the smart contract will augment its power to be used in any kind of metaverse.

Design and Development
Best design and development practices are needed to be performed using robust programming languages. Solidity and Rust can be used to compile the smart contract code and deploy it to architect metaverse smart contracts.

Audits help analyze testing procedures and eliminate any anomalies and vulnerabilities posed to the smart contract’s development and deployment.

Errors found are resolved and the metaverse smart contracts are optimized to the greatest extent to make them efficient and aligned with the business logic and vision.
