Ever since the Metaverse word has made it to the internet, every user has been curious about its creation and adoption. Genies a company founded in 2017, lets users create their own digital avatars for the virtual world. The company is very famous among the celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Lil Nas X, Cardi B, and more which makes it trending among the netizens. However, Genies claim that it has secured 99% celebrity avatar market share.

Its adoption by the celebs and its online presence helped Genies to land a deal with both Universal Music Group and Warner Music Group. The company will partner with both giants as ‘official avatars and digital goods NFT provider.’
