Avatar company Metaverse Ready Player Me has raised $13 million in an A-Series funding round. Information about this appears in a press release.
- This investment round of the project was led by co-founder Wise Taavet Hinrikus and co-founder of Teleport Sten Tamkivi. The developer also received funding from Samsung Next, NordicNinja, Konvoy Ventures, Gmoney, and GitHub co-founder Tom Preston-Werner.
- The startup team plans to use the funds received to implement the project’s expansion plans.
- Ready Player Me develops tools for creating virtual avatars to showcase participants’ personalities in the virtual world. Developers pay attention to the versatility of their designs. Ready Player Me avatars can be “transferred” between applications, keeping the format chosen for presenting yourself in the metaverse.
- To create their own virtual reflection using platform tools, users just need to upload their photos to the platform. You can also use ready-made “templates” for the formation of an avatar.
We remind you that the Baidu team previously said that the creation of their metaverse might take 6 years.
