Say hello to Decentraland Avatars!
The Metaverse just got personal.
After several months of development, seemingly endless tweaks and iterations, we’re beyond proud to announce the arrival of Decentraland Avatars.
Avatars allow Decentraland users to create their own special look, customizable through thousands of different combinations and be issued with a Passport, enabling them to set off on unlimited adventures in the Metaverse.
Claim your name before it’s gone!
Users can go on to claim a unique name on the blockchain. Your identity in Decentraland, it helps friends and newcomers alike make contact. Since they can’t be duplicated by another user, every name is unique so make sure you get yours before somebody else does.
Special offers for first Avatars
Every user who creates a Decentraland Avatar will be shortlisted for access to our private World Explorer Beta. World Explorer allows users to explore the Metaverse and view content created by fellow Decentraland inhabitants.
The first 4,000 people who go on to claim a name will receive a limited-edition blockchain wearable from the addictive Ethereum blockchain-based battle game, MyCryptoHeroes. These can be traded in open marketplaces throughout Decentraland.
It usually costs 100 MANA to claim a name, but for the first 1,000 people claiming a name with cryptocurrency wallet, Trust Wallet, it’s completely free. What’s more, Trust Wallet and exchange partner Binance will stump up the gas fee.
