Dapper Labs has acquired Brud on October 4 2021.
We've reached a crossroads. Brud may have made virtual humans real - but you made them matter... You, the community of fans who've inspired us all along, have always been the most important part of this equation. But we're all stuck in Web 2.0, where platforms exploit, platforms extract, and brands tell us all what to do.
