We’re excited to announce that Union Avatars has officially joined Polkadot Base Camp, Outlier Ventures web3 accelerator program focused on supporting teams in the metaverse ecosystem, building in Web 3 industries.
Union Avatars was one of the teams handpicked to participate in the program along with other teams around the world. Check out the full announcement.

About Union Avatars
Union is the company blurring the lines between the virtual world and reality.
As digital transformation accelerates, Union leads the production of realistic 3D avatars for virtual worlds.
Right now, most companies are focussing exclusively on the creation and development of immersive environments but the key actors are left behind, users.
What about virtual identity? What about our data, privacy and rights as users? Do we want the new Web 3 and the metaverse to inherit the same liabilities that we have in web 2 and social media?
Our mission is to help shape the future of virtual identity in the metaverse. We provide avatars solutions so you can have a realistic and trustworthy representation of yourself in video games, social media, virtual reality, immersive worlds or gamification.
We believe in a decentralised metaverse that leaves no one behind. In Union Avatars we root for assets portability and user data ownership.
We are working to offer interoperability and portability for our user’s assets among platforms, and we intend to do it through our 3D realistic avatars.
The coming months will be full of challenges and hard work, and we can’t wait to get into it!
