Virtual reality and Blockchain

Blockchain brings us together

When a breakthrough is made in any field, no matter how minuscule, it must be shared with the community at large. Scientists across the world are working simultaneously on the same problems, and if one unintentionally neglects to update the community, others waste time, energy, and funding trying to solve a piece of the puzzle that may already be answered elsewhere. The blockchain is a perfect solution to this problem, as its ledger-like network capabilities require all participants to remain on the same page, at the same time.

Besides a responsive network, this kind of blockchain construction also founds an undisputable timeline of creation, so that everyone responsible for progress in the field receives their share of the credit. Those with new ideas can quickly ascertain the advances of their predecessors and peers and join the collective think tank where their skill set is appropriate. This will knowingly hasten the speed of growth, and by inspiring participation, will naturally expand the size of the network (and the STEM field) accordingly.

How does virtual reality fit in?

Whereas STEM was once run on pencils and paper, it has moved to tablets, laptops, and smartphones. Virtual reality (VR) occurs with the support of this technology, namely to help us intellect the world that is being predictable upon us. Instead of tapping out letters on a keyboard, it stands to reason that study in STEM fields will follow in technology’s footsteps. There previously exist communicating platforms for practical study inside virtual environments, and though the output may look entirely diverse from what is visible with a laptop, the input is all still data. Naturally, this makes blockchain a suitable home for storing and disseminating VR research files as well as traditional data formats.

It may look obscure at first glance but will ascertain more useful than most expect. The blockchain capacity to instantly disseminate information, combined with VR, will make it easy to study subjects that benefit from an ‘experiential’ component. A recent astral event offers an appropriate example: the disintegration of two dead, orbiting neutron stars. LIGO, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Observatory, detected the gravitational waves generated by the collision (known as a kilonova) and quickly triangulated the area of space where the yet-unwitnessed explosion was likely to have originated from. They then emailed important viewpoints, one of which was fast sufficient to find the explosion and witness it before it's light died.

Had these institutions been connected via blockchain, relevant participants would have been notified immediately, and collaborative triangulation efforts would have likely given more observatories additional time to study the spectacle. There was a tremendous amount of luck involved in this principal viewing and had a single factor been different, it was likely that humanity would have missed this important phenomenon

VR as an App for Blockchains

VR to Exchange about how to reasonably produce the “Metaverse”?—?the name for an immersive virtual reality world taken from Neil Stevenson’s 1992 VR novel Snow Crash. The idea is simple: if people start living in VR, its rules and systems will be just as important as the “real” worlds.

To show why imagine if everyone lived in World of Warcraft or the practical world that Facebook is building. People’s social lives, assets, and jobs will be tied up in this world. And that resources that the central company running the world could take it all away on a whim should it match them.

This is the source of a massive plot hole in the recent popular novel Ready Player One. It describes a virtual world, OASIS, where people spend most of their time. A huge company named Innovative Online Industries owns and turns the OASIS. A race to find a treasure in the world ensues. Normal people end up battling employees of IOI to find it. While the book is diverting, since IOI owns and panels the OASIS’ servers and databases, they could do whatever they want: delete other people, access any information, change the rules of the world, and print themselves infinite currency.

Blockchains are an answer to many of these hard problems. If your possessions are on a blockchain, no only functioning of a world can take them from you. If your uniqueness lives on the blockchain, you can’t be deleted.


By the help of this writing piece, we introduce the intense topic of virtual reality and blockchain. And how blockchain work as a perfect digital ledger. Hope above description can help you to understand the difference between blockchain and virtual reality. Our aim is to aware you latest trend of cryptocurrency market-related topics.
