Metaverse as the latest buzzword has attracted great attention from both
industry and academia. Metaverse seamlessly integrates the real world with the
virtual world and allows avatars to carry out rich activities including
creation, display, entertainment, social networking, and trading. Thus, it is
promising to build an exciting digital world and to transform a better physical
world through the exploration of the metaverse.
In this survey, we dive into the metaverse by discussing how Blockchain and
Artificial Intelligence (AI) fuse with it by investigating the most related
studies across the metaverse components, digital currencies, AI technologies,
and applications in the virtual world, and blockchain-empowered technologies.
We believe that the further exploitation and interdisciplinary research on the
fusion of AI and Blockchain in metaverse require collaboration from both
academia and industries.
