In a world-first, trailblazing new social entertainment platform YAHAHA has partnered with Dabeeo, a Korean startup technology platform, to launch the Artificial Intelligence Mirror World Project. Through this exclusive partnership with Dabeeo, users can now quickly build 3D maps and landscapes from the real world in YAHAHA. To launch the collaboration, YAHAHA is hosting a new challenge on its platform, where creators can win a prize of up to $2000 with a total prize fund of $4600. Get involved in the challenge here.
Available to consumers for the first time, Dabeeo’s innovative technology creates maps using positioning and geospatial data technology integrated with AI and satellite imagery. Previously each building and object from the real world would have to be built manually, but now this process has been simplified, supporting YAHAHA users around the world to create realistic scenes from real cities quickly. The 3D creation platform has future plans with Dabeeo to create a mirror world, where everything we can see in cities and streets can be re-created in YAHAHA.
An easy-to-use social entertainment platform, YAHAHA supports participants to create, publish, share and play content. YAHAHA’s priority is to make 3D content creation available for users of all levels, lowering entry levels with no-code creation, premade assets, and tutorials. Its unique Studio tool makes content creation as easy as drag and drop, so there are no barriers for new creators to overcome.
YAHAHA is passionate about interoperability in gaming, especially as the world continues to move toward a more digital lifestyle, where real and virtual life merges in all sorts of different ways. This aligns with Dabeeo’s vision to integrate technology and real-life experiences. With Dabeeo’s technology, YAHAHA creators can purchase newly designed assets and begin experimenting with this technology to create real life features in different scenes.
The first real world scene that Dabeeo will introduce in YAHAHA is Hongdae Club Street. This street in Hongik University area, Seoul, South Korea is known as the mecca for clubgoers, as it is packed with hip-hop, jazz and dance venues. As part of the launch of the Dabeeo partnership, YAHAHA is hosting the K-Club Street Creator Challenge. From September 1st creators can compete to win prizes up to $2,000 by adding their own details to scenes in the YAHAHA platform – the world’s first ever contest campaign with a real world-based template. There will be an indoor music space and an outdoor busking area for users to customise, with YAHAHA and Dabeeo awarding prizes for the best environments. Sign up to create your unique creation here.
Pengfei Zhang, Co-Founder, COO at Yahaha Studios, says: “We are really happy to announce our partnership with Dabeeo, and to bring an exclusive new way of creating to the YAHAHA platform. This fascinating AI technology is providing users with exciting, real life features to make their creating experience easier and more life-like.
“The YAHAHA community can showcase their skills with the K-Club Street Creator Challenge whilst exploring these new features and will help to push the boundaries of what Dabeeo’s AI technology can do. We can’t see what they create!”
Dabeeo will ultimately use the mirror world technology in multiple major cities, enabling YAHAHA users to interact with new exciting scenes. Dabeeo also plans to extend the use of its AI technology to provide more scenes from across the world on YAHAHA, giving users access to parts of the globe that they can interact and create with, all within its social entertainment platform.
Juhum Park, Founder and CEO of Dabeeo, said: “Partnering with YAHAHA allows Dabeeo to unlock a new world of creating, expanding our reach and developing our technology on a wider scale. YAHAHA’s audience of creators means our data can be used in many different ways, including the unique creations that users design. We hope that our technology will help to bring a new level of entertainment to the YAHAHA platform and we are greatly excited for our future plans.”

NYX Soulmate Launches Match for Web3
NYX, a Web3 startup leveraging NFTs, is excited to announce the launch of Soulmate, an AI-powered match platform for Web3. NYX Soulmate utilizes a proprietary artificial Intelligence (AI), and hard science to match users based on who they are, not how they look.
Lee, Chief Executive Officer at NYX Soulmate, said: “Web3 avatars and PFPs are nothing but empty shells if they can’t convey to Metaverse entities who we are. Immersion is incomplete without individuation. NYX opens up a world of possibilities towards the individuation of web3 experiences by way of (through) matchmaking.”
Each Soul NFT contains biodata that the AI uses to suggest compatible matches. The platform also rewards participants when they choose to interact socially.
Zr0, Co-founder and Chief Product Officer at NYX Soulmate, said: “We want to leverage web3 to make a positive impact on the fight against the loneliness epidemic.”
Leveraging blockchain technology and smart contracts, SOUL NFTs can be privately owned and integrated across platforms. It breaks the silo, creating a layer of socialization that can be experienced by the user in any NFT community, game or metaverse of their choice.
Soulmate takes users through a process of self-discovery, incorporates fine art into the experience and suggests like-minded people to connect.
Su, Chief Data Scientist at NYX Soulmate, said: “If we look at references like Ready Player One or Snow Crash, they predict a Metaverse that doesn’t rely on selfies. We are building a matchmaking AI to support that.”
Key features and benefits of NYX Soulmate:
- A way to personalize the web3 ‘face’ you show in the Metaverse.
- Make connections with like-minded individuals through matchmaking algorithms.
- Network in business and personal endeavors with a more informed knowledge of others in the Soulmate ecosystem.

APE white paper on metaverse for casino resort marketing
Hong Kong-listed Asia Pioneer Entertainment Holdings Ltd (APE) has issued a “white paper” on the advantages for casino operators in using new-generation 3D digital imaging known as the “metaverse” for consumer marketing. The company has been mainly known as a distributor and technical support provider for third-party casino equipment sold into Macau and other Asia Pacific markets.
In March, Asia Pioneer said it had formed a new unit to develop business related to the metaverse. The latter is a network of virtual worlds presented via 3D imagery (APE example pictured), and focused on social connection. Such technology is already used by retailers and other service providers to offer an alternative to simply either in-person shopping or browsing a service provider’s standard website.
In June, Asia Pioneer launched what it termed a “Mini Macau metaverse experience”, which it says allows people to experience virtually, online, the city’s main tourism attractions. Players can also complete in-game challenges and earn prizes that can be redeemed when they visit Macau, according to the firm.
Asia Pioneer’s newly-issued white paper discusses what it terms its “Resortverse project”, which it said it has been “developing to bring resort and travel destinations into the metaverse”.
The company noted that the Covid-19 pandemic and its disruption to travel and tourism had seen the contraction of traditional sales channels such as office-based travel agents. It added that even online travel agents typically offered little interactive content for consumers.
Resorts and hotels engaged in “post-Covid recovery can no longer rely on traditional channels for business generation,” suggested the document.
Resort operators “need to upgrade their marketing strategies to attract a new generation of direct travellers by upgrading the direct booking experience by adapting to new metaverse experience,” and employing so-called ‘Web 3.0’ strategies, enabling would-be customers to make a virtual tour of the property.
This would help “to get the marketing message out more effectively,” wrote the report’s main authors, Tony Chan, chief financial officer of Asia Pioneer, and Allen Huie, the firm’s chairman and executive director.
Property operators could also use the metaverse to offer consumers points of brand engagement such as video and other games, including the possibility of earning reward ‘points’ for use in the real-life resort.
“Prior to Covid-19… the market for tourist bookings was dominated by online travel agencies which accounted for around 70 percent of all travel bookings,” said the white paper.
“However, online travel agencies are becoming more transaction focused as their websites are very much stuck in Web 2.0 theme.”
It added: “Whereas guests only had photos, text, and reviews to go on before, with the metaverse, users are digitally immersed in a 3D view of resort and facilities. Digital assistants are able to give guided tours and take virtual bookings.”
