Avatar creator Ready Player Me partners with Mzaalo
Avatar creation platform Ready Player Me has announced its latest collaboration with blockchain-based video streaming service Mzaalo. Starting today, Mzaalo will offer a special series of Ready Player Me avatars based on selected IP from iconic movies on the platform to all users across its iOS and Android apps.
Launched by Xfinite, Mzaalo is a new video on demand service which used Ready Player Me avatars earlier this year to promote the motion picture release of Haathi Mere Saathi. Rewarding users with Mzaalo Coins which are exclusive to the platform, in return for watching movies, the company plans to give users access to an even wider range of customization assets that will become unlockable for avatars using the in-app currency.
Vikram Tanna, COO, Xfinite said: "Digital avatars are a steppingstone to the metaverse revolution. We constantly strive to deliver immersive experiences to Mzaalo users, and our partnership with Ready Player Me enables us to take our gamified entertainment ecosystem to the next level. Mzaalo and Ready Player Me are powered by cutting-edge technology, and we are confident that this innovative collaboration will enhance user experiences for both platforms.
Ready Player Me CEO Timmu Toke said: “We are delighted to be bringing avatars from Ready Player Me to Mzaalo. With such a great blend of interactivity, gamification and entertainment, we feel this is the perfect partnership and will help our avatars reach a larger audience than ever before. This is our next step in connecting like-minded companies to the metaverse. We have more developments on the horizon and are excited to share what’s in the pipeline very soon.”
