Ready Player Me, a metaverse platform of customizable avatars, has announced a new collection of 3D avatars for the CryptoPunks NFTs owners. The so-called "Ready Player Me Punks" collection consists of 10,000 avatars with unique Punk attributes.
Players could use the avatars on a variety of different platforms, including DeepMotion, Mona, and Somnium Space. The team behind the platform notes that the sale will last for a limited time and only for CryptoPunks owners. The minting price is 0.33 ETH (~$1,075).
The developers claim that half of the proceeds (including sales on the secondary market) will go to developers behind apps and games compatible with the Punks and other NFT-based assets.
We are doing this to boost the growth of the metaverse and support our growing network of Partners using the Ready Player Me platform.
The move comes after Ready Player Me raised $13 million in a Series A funding round led by Taavet+Sten, the co-founders of Wise and Teleport. Other investors, such as Tom Preston-Werner, Co-Founder of GitHub, Samsung Next, NordicNinja, and Konvoy Ventures, among many others also participated in the funding.
