Application: Digital asset transfers in a virtual environment based on a physical object (Patent ID: US20230360044A1)

The patent filed by Bank of America Corp. describes an apparatus and method for transferring virtual resources using non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in a virtual environment. The system involves authenticating NFTs based on data stored in them, which is associated with physical objects, and authorizing interaction sessions between avatars to transfer NFTs between digital folders of different users. The process includes searching blockchain records, analyzing transfers, updating records, and conducting interactions to facilitate the secure transfer of NFTs.

The apparatus and method outlined in the patent enable users to securely transfer NFTs representing physical objects in a virtual environment. By authenticating NFTs based on stored data and conducting interactions between avatars, the system ensures the integrity and ownership of the transferred virtual resources. The use of blockchain technology, search queries, and hash information verification adds layers of security and transparency to the transfer process, while also allowing for real-world interactions based on the presence of NFTs in digital folders. Overall, the patent describes a comprehensive system for managing and transferring virtual resources using NFTs in a virtual environment.
