Ready Player Me Raises $13m for Portable Metaverse Avatars

It makes no sense for users to create a new avatar for each game and experience. Your avatar should be able to travel with you across the metaverse.

As they announce on their blog Ready Player Me has raised a $13M Series A funding round.

The round was led by Taavet+Sten, the co-founders of Wise and Teleport, with participation from Tom Preston-Werner, the co-founder of GitHub, Samsung Next, NordicNinja and Konvoy Ventures, among many others.

They also state the core purpose and proposition of the venture:

“The metaverse is not a single app or a game – it’s a network of thousands of virtual worlds people visit to play, work, and collaborate. It makes no sense for users to create a new avatar for each game and experience. Your avatar should be able to travel with you across the metaverse.”

Their ambition is to build the best avatar system for developers across the metaverse, building out custom content creation tools, flexible avatar APIs and SDKs for improved developer experience and ease of integration, investing in avatar art through additional styles and body types, and improving avatar performance.

Their goal is also for Ready Player Me to become a revenue generator for developers, achieved through in-game asset sales and NFTs.

  1. I have been surfing online greater than 3 hours today, yet I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the net shall be much more useful than ever before. “I think that maybe if women and children were in charge we would get somewhere.” by James Grover Thurber.
