Accelerating Digital Creator Economies

Built by the team at Second Life to power its own digital economy, Tilia is the leading payment platform for game publishers, virtual environments, and creator economies globally.

Born from Linden Lab, the pioneers who have steered Second Life's virtual cosmos for two decades, Tilia emerged from a vision to infuse tangible value into virtual assets. Our journey began with recognizing the untapped potential of in-game economies to transcend the digital realm.

In a world familiar with payment processing and virtual wallets, Tilia's breakthrough lies in our legally compliant framework, enabling users to seamlessly convert virtual earnings into real-world currency.

Leveraging deep insights from virtual ecosystems, we've engineered a comprehensive suite of tools to facilitate payments, oversee digital transactions, and ensure smooth conversion to fiat currency, crediting directly to users' bank accounts.

Simultaneously, Tilia has cultivated an elite cadre of legal and security experts dedicated to navigating the complexities of regulatory compliance, safeguarding transactions, and pioneering cutting-edge fraud management strategies.

As we continue to evolve, Tilia remains committed to empowering users and developers alike, fostering an economy where digital and real-world finance converge with trust, ease, and innovation.
