What are NFTs

NFTs on IMVU come in two forms. 

  • NFT Exclusives are unique, one-of-a-kind items that can only be owned by one person. 
  • Limited Edition NFTs are rare, collectible items that can be owned by a set number of people determined by its total quantity. 
  • Owning an NFT unlocks an exclusive gold NFT badge and other special benefits.
  • Compared to regular products, NFTs on IMVU can be bought and resold with VCOIN. As a Creator, you also earn VCOIN from the initial sale and resale of your NFT products.
  • Check out the NFTs on IMVU that have been sold so far in our NFT Marketplace, many of which are made by Creators just like you.
  • Learn more about the basics of NFTs on IMVU here and learn how creating NFTs on IMVU will work here.

In addition, Creators can apply to our Alpha Tester program, where Creators can test NFT capabilities and other IMVU Studio features before they are introduced to the general IMVU Creator Community.

Creating NFTs on IMVU is similar to making regular products! To participate in this contest, submit your products in the same way you normally submit for the regular IMVU catalog. See additional contest rules below.

  • Submissions must be from your own imagination. No copyrighted or branded material is allowed.
  • Submissions in IMVU Studio are highly encouraged but not required.
  • Submissions must be in one of the categories below. Only clothing and avatar products are allowed. Stickers and badges will not be considered.

Judging Criteria

  • Creators can submit multiple submissions, but only one product and its Creator can win either the Grand Prize or Runner-Up Prizes.
  • Submissions will be judged based on the following criteria:
    • Overall originality of submission (30%);
    • Aesthetic appeal of submission (30%); and
    • Level of Detail and Technical Quality of submission (40%)
  • Winners will gain early access to the creating NFT features and the IMVU team will help winners with the publishing process. 
  • All other contest participants and Creators will still be able to publish their submission as an NFT and sell their NFT for VCOIN once this feature becomes available to everyone on IMVU in the near future.
