MetaZone, a platform enabling creators to mint NFTs for 3D digital content and apps in the metaverse, has raised $3 million in a seed round co-led by Sfermion and CMT Digital, with participation from other industry leaders and web3 funds.
MetaZone announced today the completion of its US$3 million seed round co-led by metaverse industry leaders, Sfermion and CMT Digital, to expand their tokenized app platform pioneering the META, (Metaverse Enabled Tokenized Application). Top web3 funds Tess Ventures, IOSG Ventures,IVC (Infinity Ventures Crypto), Polygon Studios, MHC Digital, and LucidBlue Ventures also participated in the round.
MetaZone is the first and only platform that enables creators and developers to mint non-fungible tokens (NFTs) for functional 3D digital content and apps that can be distributed in the metaverse. Using the MetaZone platform, each creator’s META is assigned an NFT that represents its value, ownership, and access rights. These NFTs can be purchased and used to install each app on digital land where it can be utilized by the owner and visitors of that land.
MetaZone is at the forefront of a revolutionary shift, opening up new revenue streams for developers and creators through the distribution of their content across the metaverse. To date, US$2.5M has been generated by MetaZone’s creators, representing what MetaZone envisions as the beginning stages of a new digital economy that will rival the economic outputs of real-world nation-states. Many of MetaZone’s creators have generated thousands USD through the sale of their content, while several top creators have generated 6 figures in revenue.
Charlie Sandor of CMT Digital explains “The metaverse has the potential to usher in a new era of economic opportunity for a wide variety of participants. However, an aspect of its success relies on enabling creators and developers to generate content that is more impactful, functional, and engaging to ensure the metaverse produces experiences and future utilities that make it worth visiting.”
CEO of MetaZone, William Gomez adds that “The application layer will be the driving force behind the trillion dollar metaverse, providing the framework for a vast array of immersive experiences and services that will transform exciting economic activity into a virtual economy.”
MetaZone’s mission is to harness the application layer of the metaverse to onboard a billion citizens. MetaZone is the first content distribution platform designed to facilitate the open digital economy. At its core, creators are enabled to submit Metaverse Enabled Tokenized Applications (METAs) that anyone can own, experience, and deploy in any virtual world.
