Bruce Lee Avatar Reunites with Fans on Metaverse

The 50th anniversary of the iconic martial artist and actor Bruce Lee, who died in 1973, will be commemorated in the metaverse.

Fans will get the chance to learn martial arts from Bruce Lee in the metaverse during a memorial event hosted by a social entertainment platform.

The Metaverse project, Byte City, announced on July 26 that anyone interested in interacting with an avatar of the late actor could join the event by creating an avatar on Ethereum and Polygon. The creation of avatars is set to start at 9:00 AM US time on July 27 for Polygon, and at 9:00 AM on July 28 for Ethereum.

Individuals who successfully mint an avatar using Ethereum or Polygon will gain the ability to employ their freshly minted playable characters in the Byte City metaverse game, 24 hours post-minting. The game will be accessible via desktop browsers and mobile devices on both iOS and Android platforms.

In preparation for the commemorative event, Byte City has partnered with Bruce Lee’s daughter, Shannon Lee, and Samsung Gaming.

Shannon Lee has previously stated in a press release that the game is designed to provide an immersive experience, enabling fans to celebrate her father’s legacy in a distinctive manner.

The memorial event by Byte City is not Bruce Lee’s first online presence. The Bruce Lee Foundation, led by Shannon Lee, collaborated with the NFT video platform Shibuya to release an NFT collection called The House of Lee on April 12.

While The House of Lee NFT collection brought in about $730,000 in revenue, NFT owners later found out that only one NFT in the entire collection was unique. This discovery led to a significant drop in the collection’s base price, falling from the original minting price of 0.008 Ethereum (ETH) to 0.002 ETH.
