When you enter a MONA Space, you will be assigned a default Robot. Unless you have created a MONA account, you will be named as a 'Guest #' until you sign in.

To Customize your Avatar, click the Avatar Button or press 4 on your Keyboard. This will allow you to easily create an avatar with ReadyPlayerMe, or using fully custom VRM avatars.

Note: You you will need an account to save your Avatar when you return to MONA.

Name Your Avatar (Create an Account)

If you want to add a name to your Avatar, you will need to create an Account. Your Wallet is your account in Mona.

To create an account, you will need a crypto wallet, like Metamask or Wallet Connect. If you have a wallet, it's easy to create an account - just click "Login" on to start the process.

Note: Whatever name you use when setting up your account, this will appear as your Avatar name.

If you don't have a crypto wallet, learn how to do so at Setting up a wallet.
