Decentraland, an open platform for gaming and socializing, gives players the opportunity to traverse an ever-expanding and engaging virtual world. With the introduction of Avatars, players can now appreciate an immersive experience on web and mobile devices that fosters self expression and creativity.
When creating their Avatars, players take charge of their virtual identities – will they design a visual representation of themselves, or will they forge a path as someone completely new? The opportunities are endless with the Avatar Creator, where players can choose between dozens of different physical traits, clothing options, and accessories. With this simple tool, anyone can explore Decentraland with style and swagger.
Truly unique names
Players can register a one-of-a-kind name on the blockchain by burning a small amount of MANA, Decentraland’s ERC20 token. By selecting a unique name, players secure forever an exclusive identity with which to explore a vast virtual world. Players will also use their Avatar name to sign in to the various platforms within the Decentraland ecosystem.
Passports to the next virtual world
Along with Avatars, Decentraland has introduced Passports, which act as a secure, single sign-on for Decentraland. With Passports, Decentralander users will find an even more cohesive and streamlined experience for their metaverse travels.
Sign up early for perks and rewards
Players who sign up for Avatars are automatically entered in a lucky draw, and fifty lucky winners will be randomly selected to receive limited edition NFT backed accessories for their avatars. Because names are completely one-of-a-kind and minted on the Ethereum blockchain, unique and interesting names are coveted.
Anyone who signs up for Avatars will also be given early access to Decentraland before the full launch later this year.

More about Decentraland
Decentraland is a virtual reality platform built on top of the Ethereum network, making it possible for individuals, brands, and studios to develop rich, interactive 3D content hosted on a decentralized platform.
By dividing the 3D space of Decentraland into a finite supply of virtual parcels of land (LAND), with each parcel corresponding to a non-fungible token, Decentraland gives its users full control and ownership of their own digital space, assets, and experiences.
The web and mobile client allowing users to connect to and view the virtual world is still being built with an intended release date of early 2019, but Decentraland has an established community of developers already building games and experiences.
