Co-founder of Immutable X, Robbie Ferguson, shared:
“We are thrilled at the partnership with IMVU. With Immutable X’s technology, we are offering scalability to every user in IMVU metaverse and allowing them to trade their NFTs seamlessly on Ethereum without compromising on the security of their assets.”
Immutable and StarkWare created Immutable X as a new construct in the world of NFT. The platform guarantees asset trade in an affordable, decentralized, and transparent ecosystem. A partnership between Immutable and Trace will let IMVU users create content without leaving a carbon footprint.
Strategic future milestones
Together Labs is planning a number of key milestones in the context of building the next generation metaverse economy, which includes NFT integration that leverages the Immutable X platform. VCOIN, a transferable digital currency IMVU launched in January this year, is being sold as a non-security with specific relief from SEC.
Sanjay Wahi, senior director of strategy for blockchain at IMVU, said:
“IMVU users are very accustomed to creating for and buying from our virtual goods marketplace today. With the addition of NFTs and the ability to leverage the Immutable X platform, we will be able to enhance this experience in a seamless way that should drive even more adoption from both creators and users.”
