upd8 (read as "update"; Japanese: アップデート appudēto) was a project started in June 2018 by Activ8. It supports "Virtual Talents" such as Virtual YouTubers (but not restricted to them) by offering entertainment industry-related contacts and services, in exchange for a portion of the talents' earnings.
