- $13M raised by Ready Player Me which is a metaverse avatar platform
- Metaverse Fashion Week: Decentraland with UNXD has announced its first fashion week to be held in March 2022
While some people are sitting on the fence about the Metaverse, the rest of us are diving in with great enthusiasm. The avatar that you use in the metaverse is important. The way you create and style your avatar in the digital world is a channel for self-expression that is similar to appearances in the physical world. The fashion-conscious are equally attentive to their appearance in both worlds. Ready Player Me has thought about people’s identity and appearance needs in the Metaverse. Decentraland and UNXD are celebrating fashion through their first fashion week in March.
Avatars With Ready Player Me
Avatars are not new to those who are familiar with the gaming world. Avatars are essential in the virtual world. As the Metaverse grows, there is a need for a person to maintain their identity across different games. While Real Player Me (RPM) is primarily a cross-game avatar platform it can be used in any of the virtual environments. With over 500 customizations, it gives users room for creativity and self-expression. RPM is also compatible across many platforms such as Android, iOS, Unreal, Unity and WebGL. RPM has proved itself with its integration across multiple games as well as apps across many applications. Investors have seen the value in the need for the same avatar across the Metaverse and RPM has successfully raised over $13M from investors.
To quote Jackson Vaughan, partner @konvoyventures and board member @carry1st @edgegap:
In the future, RPM will offer the ability for apps to monetize premium assets, automating a core rev stream & solving the X-platform interoperability problem encountered today. As the network of apps & userbase grows, RPM will only become more valuable to everyone involved.
Metaverse Fashion Week In March
Decentraland and UNXD together have called on designers, brands and fashionistas to participate in the Metaverse Fashion Week from 24th – 27th March 2022. The fashion week will feature pop-up shops, catwalks, immersive experiences and after-parties.
UNXD is a curated marketplace that has taken on the task of presenting the best of digital culture by ‘intertwining’‘ the physical and digital worlds. It was created by the team that is behind the international editions of Vogue and WIRED. So, get set to immerse yourself in the first Metaverse Fashion Week and experience the best of fashion in the Metaverse.
Appearances matter regardless of whether you are in the physical or the virtual world. As the Metaverse evolves, you can have fun with appearances and fashion in both worlds. Both RPM and the Metaverse Fashion Week highlight that human nature and attitudes towards how we present ourselves to others is very important in both worlds.
