VCOIN — the first currency to allow users to buy, gift, earn and, for the first time, transfer their digital assets off the IMVU platform, to convert into fiat.

Virtual Currency. Real World Value.

VCOIN is a new digital currency designed for the Metaverse. Launching in January on the IMVU platform VCOIN will provide another digital currency for users on the platform. Yet unlike the usual in-game currency, VCOIN is a cryptocurrency built on the Ethereum blockchain and adhering to the ERC-20 standard — which opens up more possibilities for users, earners and anyone that participates in the virtual economy. Users can purchase, earn, and exchange VCOIN within the IMVU platform — and for the first time, transfer it off of the platform and convert into cash.

Why Create a New Digital Currency?

I started playing on IMVU about 2 years ago and around the summer of 2019 is when I decided to start my modeling service. Currently I model clothing for Creators and post photos to advertise that clothing to the broader IMVU community. I also advertise Creator items through my streams.

Hello, my name is Lync!

I’m an IMVU Producer and I do edits. I’ve been playing VU for about 2 years now, and soon after joining I started making edits and posting stuff up on my Instagram. Not professionally but just as a hobby at the time. I love creating memorable images and cool poster-like pieces that kinda transcended the visuals you could create on-platform. I really fell into the Producer role by accident you could say. When posting my edits on Instagram, all of sudden people started messaging me asking for prices. They assumed I was a business…

This month we kicked off our #IAmAProducer Campaign in order to highlight and support the various Producers that are currently earning VCOIN in the IMVU metaverse. At the moment we have over 60+ Producers actively requesting and earning VCOIN on-platform.
