Quick take:

  • Alibaba Cloud has partnered with Avalanche to build a metaverse launchpad for its clients.
  • Cloudverse aims to help businesses customise, launch and maintain their own metaverse spaces on Avalanche.
  • Metaverse middleware MUA DAO will help implement the integration and customisation for metaverses.

Alibaba Cloud is doubling down on its web3 strategy with a metaverse launchpad built on Avalanche. The Alibaba Group’s digital technology and intelligence division has collaborated with the Layer 1 blockchain company to build a metaverse launchpad for its clients.

According to the announcement, metaverse middleware MUA DAO will help implement the integration and customisation for metaverses. Alibaba’s latest web3 product is part of a move meant to answer a rallying call from its clients.

“[Alibaba Cloud] partners are asking to be part of web3,” John Wu, president of Ava Labs, told TechCrunch. “So we will be dedicating resources to make it easy for them to make their own SDKs on top of ours.”

Through this partnership, Alibaba Cloud clients will also be able to use Cloudverse to create customizable blockchain solutions. This infrastructure is supported by Avalanche’s node network, which allows developers to deploy application-specific blockchains on the main blockchain.

Avalanche believes giving businesses the tools to launch metaverses quickly could open the doors for enterprises that do not have the time and resources to build their own metaverse spaces.

Emin Gün Sirer, the founder and CEO of Ava Labs commented: “You and I can create a metaverse right now. Within 15 minutes, the chain is up; within hours the wallet is up and the turnkey is up, adding that the technology is very “easy to use” and the tools have been made open source.

Those looking to launch their metaverse spaces on Cloudverse can expect to receive support with visuals, metaeconomics, interactive functions, events, and continued operations, among others.

Cloudverse allows users to reduce the process of launching a live metaverse space to about a month after the initial outreach, the Ava Labs execs told TechCrunch.

Avalanche will be giving more than 4 million Alibaba Cloud customers and about 10 million developers an opportunity to become node operators with Cloudverse. “It’s a great way for Asian users to manage and validate nodes, and now we’re extending this partnership with Cloudverse,” Wu said.
