Today marks a very special day for us. Since we raised 3.5 million last November, we’ve been dreaming of this day, where we see our product come to life. We dream of the next social media platforms where you are no longer bound to one identity but are freely able to choose between any avatar.
In our last post, we talked about the importance of avatars in the social metaverse. Over the last year or so, we saw the surge in popularity of PFP culture through a couple of different means. NFTs become much more than a picture, these were ways for people to express themselves and join communities with like-minded people. On social media platforms like Twitter, people started to build their identity by changing their profile picture to a Bored Ape or CryptoPunk. Taking it one step further, PFP project teams like Clone X recently released 3D files for all their holders. From our perspective, this signal a new era in Web3 where people can create their own brands, following, and step into the social metaverse using their PFP identity.
What appears to be a simple JPEG is now transforming into new digital identities and we’ve built a stepping stone to help you revolutionize your NFTs into something more.
Introducing MYTY Kit…
Built for Unity, MYTY Kit is the first truly open-source and free-to-use SDK for the Social Metaverse. We built it this way because we truly believe that this allows for maximum creativity and potential in the Web3 space. By using the MIT open source license, we grant the freedom to anyone who chooses to use the SDK as they please.
We know that PFP project teams are always looking to increase utility for their project and we wanted to make it as effortless as possible. MYTY Kit is specifically optimized for large 10k PFP collections and project teams have the freedom to transform all ten thousand 2D files into a beautifully animated version in a short few simple steps. Once you have created the avatar files in Unity, it can be used to build apps for Web, iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows.
Download MYTY Kit from our website and check out our Gitbook to learn how to use it. We also provide hands-on support if you have any questions through our MYTY Discord channel.
But wait, there’s more?
Introducing MYTY Camera.
A truly one-of-a-kind camera application that is integrated with all your favorite applications that have any camera input stream such as Zoom, Google Meet, Twitch to even Discord. It has live facial motion tracking technology that allows the camera to follow the user’s head and facial expressions. Your PFPs can now express a variety of emotions ranging from smiling, frowning, to even acting surprised. We believe that this is the first entry into the social metaverse as you’ll be able to increase the social utility of your community by increasing engagement among holders.
After you finish using MYTY Kit, you can contact the MYTY Team to upload your collection into our Avatar Registry. This Registry stores all the Avatar’s AssetBundles which then instantly allows your community to use MYTY Camera after these 3 straightforward steps.
For your holders:
- Visit MYTY’s website and find the Camera section

And voila! That’s it! Imagine the array of possibilities once you provide this application to your community.

Please note, that we currently only support Metamask and WalletConnect wallets specifically for CryptoPunks and Ghostsproject holders. If you’re a general holder of other projects, feel free to tweet us at @myty_offical or join our discord channel to let us know your favorite PFP that you want to see up next!
