Founded in 2020 by Chris Zhu (CEO), Pengfei Zhang (COO) and Hao Min (CTO), Yahaha Studios is a virtual user-generated content (UGC) metaverse where creators come together to combine virtual and real life in multidimensional ways. Created by a team of Unity veterans, with Yahaha, developers can build new games or monetize existing ones.
