Decrypting MetaFi : Leverage Decentralized Finance (DeFi) Inside the Metaverse
MetaFi is a new concept that is blooming as a game-changer in the tech industry. Many budding entrepreneurs are interested in learning more about MetaFi. This blog will explain what MetaFi is, the future of MetaFi, how MetaFi works, and MetaFi application cases.
Let's dive into the post!
MetaFi - An Overview
Meta-Fi, or Metaverse Finance, is a word used to describe the protocols, products, and services that allow for the intricate financial interplay between non-fungible and fungible tokens (and their derivatives).
We are clear that Non-fungible Tokens, or NFTs, are a file format for transferring information or value on a blockchain, such as Ethereum. Most likely, your first encounter with NFTs was through graphics such as Jpegs, which you may have seen on digital avatars such as BAYC and Crypto Punks. The fact that it is on a blockchain means that this data lives and is tokenized on-chain, and it is non-fungible. Fungible refers to something that can be interchanged and is identical to another.
How does MetaFi function?
MetaFi takes advantage of the fact that most blockchains have information about assets to facilitate interoperability. A link to the accompanying image will nearly always be included in the metadata of an NFT. You can also add metadata to a bitcoin (BTC) transaction, which allows you to include unencrypted data.
Assets will be machine-readable and sortable due to metadata standards that can be used on any blockchain. If all blockchains display their metadata in the same way, an NFT marketplace might begin to analyze and categorize NFTs from all of them.
Use Cases for MetaFi
Once MetaFi is completely developed, it will have a significant impact on the possibilities of dApps in a variety of ways. Here are some possible applications,
We can possibly build marketplaces using MetaFi that list every single asset type that can exist in multiple chains, boosting the user experience of collectors by allowing them to access all NFTs in a single interface, making asset exchange more convenient and efficient.
2. Fan Tokens:
If standard information for different tokens and platforms is in place, MetaFi can streamline the process of minting, buying, and trading fan tokens. Currently, the technique and cost of establishing and exchanging them vary on every blockchain and platform.
3. NFT Yield Farming:
Rather than sitting idle in wallets, NFTs can be put to work as collateral for crypto loans, allowing you to renew the lent assets at a greater rate, earning you money. Depending on the issuer, the functionality of these NFTs may differ. Some NFTs, for example, can be rented out to others for use in games or access to special databases that they could not otherwise purchase.
Most metaverse concepts have as their long-term goal the creation of many and persistent shared interfaces where users can consume diverse experiences together and engage with one another for various purposes, such as socializing, trading, or playing games. However, once these virtual worlds come to life, interoperability will certainly become a major issue, similar to what happened with DeFi in its early days, when fragmented decentralized exchanges (DEXs) failed to owe to a lack of liquidity and trade volume.
The future of MetaFi
Although the future of MetaFi is yet unknown, a few use cases have begun to emerge. A decentralized identity management system will play a key role in MetaFi, providing users with easy access to their digital assets and identities.
Naming services are a tool for addressing the problem of long and complicated addresses. These services will aid in the reduction of human errors. Instead of entering a long Ethereum address, customers will be able to send their tokens to a simple address.
There are also metaverse projects in the works to link the real and virtual worlds so that people can meet, exchange ideas, build, and grow.
