Yes, you heard it right; Decentraland has introduced Avatars for their platform. The users can project their personalities in a virtual way with ‘one of a kind’ Avatar on the gaming platform. Since the platform allows the users to create 3-dimensional environments, offering them special Avatars is a great way to spice up the process of monetizing the digital content.
With the introduction of the Avatars, the users can interact with other users in a more interesting and a personalized way. While exploring the ‘Genesis City’, the user can claim a virtual presence of themselves and their friends through these Avatars by creating a virtual identification.
These Avatars can be customized as per the preference of the user, you can choose the details such as design and colours, and you can even have a unique name to your chosen Avatars. These Avatars will be soon introduced.
We're excited to introduce Avatars for Decentraland! Express your virtual self and explore the metaverse in style with a truly one-of-a-kind avatar. Find out more at https://t.co/g24dIcDu8l pic.twitter.com/0UKfA5kUtH

Build Your Own Avatar:
As per the official blog of Decentraland, building your own Avatar will include a lot of variety that will cover all the requirements of the user. Here is an excerpt from the blog-
“A simple but powerful tool will allow you to mix and match between hundreds of different characteristics. Choose between facial features from eyebrows to smiles, try on different hairstyles, pick the perfect skin tone, and put together an outfit just the way you want it.”
With the help of blockchain technology, the possibility of owning a unique name to your Avatar has become possible. Once the name is selected, it is there permanently. In order to get a truly out-shining name, the user can pay in MANA. The company invites for early sign-ups to ensure one of a kind name.
The Decentraland Passport:
The Avatars get a passport which acts as a single log on for every activity on the platform. The user can combine various projects, use them in the marketplace and the rest of the metaverse.
