The year 2021 was important for the metaverse and its future. It has also been the most important year for Ready Player Me. There are now almost 1000 companies who joined us on the mission of building an interoperable and open metaverse. We couldn't be more excited for the next year and things to come.
Since it's our last product update this year, we would like to take the opportunity to wish you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
As for December, here's everything new with the Ready Player Me platform.
Ready Player Me featured on BBC and CNBC
A few months ago, we partnered with OZ who are building video creation tools with avatars like Ready Player Me. We got to work together to create an avatar for BBC's Marc Cieslak and his material on the metaverse, featuring interviews with executives from Meta and Microsoft. Watch the full video here.
Ready Player Me was also featured in CNBC's Squawk Box show about what's coming to the metaverse in 2022. Watch it here.
The Head5 collection is live
Earlier this month, we officially launched support for the Head5 collection on our platform. Users who own deadmau5's collectibles can verify their assets and use them in supported apps and games, like Somnium Space, CybrXR, MoNA, and Blind Chihuahua. As we announced last month, 50% of our revenue share from sales of Head5 assets will be distributed between our eligible Partners.
We have another project coming soon that involves the original Cryptopunks. Follow us on Twitter to stay up-to-date with it.
