Martial Art Legend Bruce Lee’s Avatar to Give Lessons in Metaverse
Summary: In honor of Bruce Lee's 50th anniversary, Byte City, a metaverse initiative, is hosting a memorial event featuring his avatar giving a martial arts lesson in the metaverse. The memorial event was created in collaboration with Samsung Gaming and Shannon Lee, Bruce Lee's daughter.
Byte City, a metaverse initiative, said on July 26 that those who want to interact with the late actor’s avatar may do so by minting avatars on Ethereum and Polygon. The Polygon minting will begin on July 27 at 9 am PST, while the Ethereum minting will begin on July 28 at the same time.
Honoring 50th Death Anniversary
In honor of the 50th anniversary of Bruce Lee’s death, a social entertainment platform is hosting a memorial event where the late actor’s avatar will give a martial arts lesson in the metaverse. Lee passed away in 1973.
Players who have created avatars on Ethereum or Polygon will get access to those avatars in the Byte City metaverse game the next day. The game is compatible with both desktop browsers and mobile devices running iOS and Android.
The memorial event was created by Byte City in conjunction with Samsung Gaming and Shannon Lee, Bruce Lee’s daughter. In a recent press release, Lee promised that the game will provide players with a unique opportunity to honor her late father’s legacy.
Not First Foray into Web3
Meanwhile, this wasn’t Bruce Lee’s first foray into the realm of Web3. The House of Lee, also directed by his daughter, is a collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) that were released on the video platform Shibuya on April 12.

Even though the sale brought in roughly $730,000, the NFT holders soon found out that there was only one really unique NFT in the whole lot. As a result, the collection’s floor price fell from its minting price of 0.008 Ether to about 0.002 ETH as of this writing.
