Online Identity And The Power Of Digital Objects With Eternal CEO Reggie James

March 9, 2023

In this episode of NEWFORUM, we were thrilled to have Reggie James, co-founder, and CEO of Eternal, as our special guest. Reggie's fascination with the next wave of identity and the evolution of social media led him to co-found Eternal with his partner. Initially, they focused on developing avatars and worlds on mobile with a raw Metaverse thesis, but the pandemic brought a shift towards supporting artists in the new tech landscape. Their platform combines ticketing and artist services to create a seamless experience for creators and fans alike. They have developed a 3D ticketing app and turned the avatar social product into a virtual venue, allowing artists to perform virtual shows and traditional live events.

Topics discussed include:

How did you come to founding a Eternal?
