Wolf3D announced today that it has closed a round of funding for its Metavers avatar platform, Ready Player Me. He raised $ 13 million through a round led by Taavet + Sten, a firm led by Wise co-founder and teleport co-founder Stan Tamkiwi. Other fundraising investors include Convoy Ventures, NordicNinja and GitHub co-founder Tom Preston-Werner.

Ready Player Mino aims to offer users customized avatars that will carry across Metavers. Players can create pictures or avatars from scratch and then use them in 900+ apps and games. The company plans to use the funds to establish its location as the “Default Avatar System for Metavers”.

Ready Player Meena CEO Timmu TK said in a statement, “2021 has been a breakout year for Ready Player Me – our capacity to adopt the Avatar platform has grown from 25 to 900 companies. By incarnating people traveling in the virtual world, we can make Metavers more connected. Metavers is not a place or a platform, it is a network of thousands of experiences. With funding, we will further scale our partner network and develop monetization tools to help developers make money with Avatar Customization Assets and NFT. Our goal is to become the default system for metavars. “

One of the company’s future projects includes NFT wearables and virtual fashion for avatars. The company has previously partnered with Dior and New Balance and most recently with Deadmau5 for the “Head5” NFT collection.
