Unstoppable Domains partners with Ready Player Me to improve interoperability for decentralized identities

NFT domain provider, Unstoppable Domains, has teamed up with Ready Player Me to improve interoperability for decentralized digital identities.

Partnership to boost web3 decentralized identities

Ready Player Me, a digital avatar creation platform, allows users to create and transport avatars across various platforms. Users have the flexibility to take their avatars with them wherever they go in the virtual world. 

In a recent partnership with web3 domain provider Unstoppable Domains, Ready Player Me users now have the added benefit of using their avatars as their profile pictures (PFP) on the Unstoppable platform. Users will be able to connect their existing Ready Player Me account or upload a photo of themselves to auto-generate an avatar with their likeness.

The collaboration expands the nature of both platforms’ users’ Decentralized Identity (DID). Decentralized Identifiers are a type of digital identity that is stored on the blockchain. They are designed to be self-sovereign, meaning that individuals have full control over their own digital identities and can use them to authenticate themselves without the need for a centralized authority.”

DIDs are made possible through NFT domains. NFT domains are a type of non-fungible token (NFT) that represents ownership of a unique domain name on a decentralized naming system, such as the Ethereum blockchain. These domains can be used to create decentralized websites and identities, as they can be linked to decentralized identifiers (DIDs) and other decentralized protocols. 

This allows for more control and ownership of one’s online identity, as well as the ability to create decentralized websites that are not controlled by any centralized organization. Essentially, NFT domains allow for decentralized and self-sovereign ownership and control of digital assets, including online identities.

Pioneering the future of NFT domains and decentralized identities

This partnership is the latest in a series of moves by Unstoppable Domains to expand the use cases and access for NFT domains and web3 decentralized identities. 

Following a series A investment round back in August 2022 where the company raised $65 million at a $1 billion valuation, Unstoppable Domains made a significant leap forward by releasing an iPhone app. The app put Web3 technology in the hands of users and made it more convenient for them to create and manage their NFT domains and to connect with decentralized applications (dapps), metaverses and games. 

Later, in November 2022, Unstoppable Domains announced the formation of the Web3 Domain Alliance, a cross-chain coalition of leading blockchain and Web3 players. The group aims to prioritize interoperability in Web3 domains and protect the naming space on the web3. The alliance includes participants like Bonfida, Tezos Domains, Polkadot Name System, Hedera, Syscoin, and Klaytn Name Service. 

Prior to that, Unstoppable Domains joined the Open Metaverse Alliance, a group of blockchain-based metaverses and Web3 platforms working to overcome interoperability challenges in the NFT industry, specifically on digital identity and avatar standards across metaverses. The latest collaboration with Ready Player Me is a clear effort towards furthering the Open Metaverse Alliance’s agenda.
