As CEO, Daren Tsui, explains, “Virtual worlds will be the next generation social platform connecting people in a way that exceeds both face-to-face connection and the curated feeds of Facebook and Instagram.”

Of four million users, more than 50,000 people earn money on IMVU by creating virtual products, selling them for IMVU credits and converting those credits into fiat money. Now, IMVU will integrate the Kin SDK and marketplace to give its user base native ways to earn cryptocurrency in the broader digital world.

  • From there, they can buy more IMVU Credits (using fiat currency) or earn them by completing tasks, taking surveys, or engaging in certain activities in the app.

“We really look to our Creators’ success as a mark of the platform’s success,” says Victor Zaud, senior vice president of marketing at IMVU. “Our Creators are incredibly creative, so we try hard to focus on empowering them further through content programs that reward their content creation.”
