Jeanne Lim launched a virtual anime version of the humanoid last month called Sophia beingAI

  • The human-like bot will now be a part of the metaverse
  • Sophia co-creator had released an anime version of the robot last month
  • The auction of Sophia’s NFT will commence on December 16

Sophia, the popular humanoid robot, is now set to enter the metaverse as an “intelligent non-fungible token (iNFT)”. The human-like bot will be part of the metaverse project called the “Noah's Ark”. The tokenised version of Sophia will be released on Binance for auction on December 16. Along with Sophia, 99 more iNFTs will be put up for auction.

The development comes after Sophia co-creator Jeanne Lim launched a virtual anime version of the humanoid last month and named it “Sophia beingAI”. Lim was promoting her new artificial intelligence (AI) venture called “beingAI”.

Now, beingAI has partnered iNFT production firm Alethea AI to bring 100 tokens to life for the metaverse including Sophia on NFT marketplace Binance. The iNFT will be part of Alethea AI's project, Noah's Ark.

Noah's Ark is an “intelligent metaverse” which aims to preserve and evolve the culture and collective intelligence of the human species.

“We are excited to bring Sophia beingAI to life as an iNFT,” Lim said.

Now, while NFTs are digital collectibles like game characters and artwork inspired by real life entities, iNFTs are embedded with the intelligence of an AI personality. While NFTs are controlled by their owners in metaverse, iNFTs can independently interact with people in real-time inside a gamified universe.

The auction of these 100 iNFTs will conclude on December 21.

Recently, a virtual mega yacht, called the Metaflower Super Mega Yacht, featuring two helipads, hot tubs, and a DJ booth among other lavish facilities was sold off for a whopping $650,000 (roughly Rs. 4.8 crore) in The Sandbox metaverse.

In November, a plot of land was sold for $2.43 million (roughly Rs. 18 crore) in Decentraland.

Bloomberg Intelligence expects the market opportunity for the metaverse to reach $800 billion (roughly Rs. 59,58,719 crore) by 2024.
