ABSTRACT

Metaverse is expanding its service field with the development of computer graphics such as games and cultural development of SNS and is expected to evolve into a form that encompasses SNS gradually. The element that users recognize as the most important in the metaverse is the digital human (avatar). It is a subject that interacts with other users and objects in the metaverse and is created directly or used through the avatar market trading platform to express the user's own personality. However, in creating and trading avatars, ownership management such as modelling and design is not sufficiently performed, resulting in serious problems such as unauthorized use and production of secondary creations. Avatars are an essential asset that represents the user's personality and identity, so it is necessary to manage the ownership of avatars. Therefore, in this study, we propose an ownership management technique using NFT (Non-Fungible Token), a decentralized token, to guarantee the ownership of avatars. Through this, ownership of avatars on the metaverse can be managed and traded transparently, which is expected to contribute to the expansion of the metaverse market, including the avatar market.
