Just recently, Decentraland unveiled Decentraland Avatars, a place where players are able to create and customize their virtual selves. With avatars, players will be able to connect with other members on Decentraland and experience the digital world in a whole new way.
What Are Decentraland Avatars?
Decentraland avatars will act as digital representations of Decentraland community members.
By creating a virtual self, you'll be able to show people who you are and allow them to recognize you in an instant. Decentraland Avatars also allow you to create, customize and manage your virtual identity, which should also help you to better manage your virtual possessions.
Emphasis on Customization
Decentraland is all about allowing people to express themselves in new and creative ways. The team is well aware of how important it is for people to design their virtual selves, which is why they'll provide their community members with a simple and easy-to-use design tool.
With it, users will be able to choose between hundreds of characteristics, from facial features like hairstyles and facial expressions to skin tone and outfits. Above all, a user that chooses to create an avatar will also tie to it a truly unique name.
Once you sign up for this project and pay a minimal fee for avatar creation, you'll be able to choose your name. Keep in mind that, once you confirm the name of your avatar, it will forever be stored on the blockchain; you won't be able to change it, and no one else will be able to choose the same name.
In addition to avatars, the Decentraland team is also preparing Decentraland Passports. So, when you create an avatar, you'll also receive a unique passport that will grant you access to all experiences on Decentraland.
Decentraland Passport will also allow you to connect your Builder projects with your LAND on the Marketplace, as well as to manage your virtual goods. In essence, Decentraland Passport will be your key to the Decentraland universe.
Decentraland Avatars are still in development, but you can already sign up for the project via this link; the sooner you sign up, the better your chances are for joining the project early. Also, Decentraland will reward 50 lucky winners with unique accessories provided by one of their partners (the partner is yet to be revealed).
