Havas Group, one of the world’s largest global communications groups, has announced that they will be joining the metaverse after acquiring a plot of land in The Sandbox.
The Sandbox, an Ethereum-based decentralized NFT metaverse leading the charge into the virtual world, has been busy building bridges with the likes of Snoop Dogg and Warner Brothers after announcing partnerships to build exclusive virtual locations for both. Now Chain Games has joined the list after partnering with The Sandbox to get a slice of the virtual pie by agreeing to create an exclusive piece of land within the metaverse where Sandbox users will have access to play all their supported titles.
EverdreamSoft (EDS), a swiss-based company founded in 2010 as a game studio and morphed into one of the pioneering forces in the integration of blockchain tools within the domain of gaming and digital collectibles since 2014, is selling exclusive Premium LAND around the EverdreamSoft Estate in The Sandbox, a community-driven platform where creators can monetize voxel ASSETs and gaming experiences on the blockchain.
Hot on the heels of yet another record breaking performance, Golden State Warriors ace sharpshooter Stephen Curry has set his aim on the crypto world with his release of the “2974 Collection”, a series of 2974 non-fungible tokens featuring digital replicas of the shoes he wore when he surpassed Ray Allen on the all-time 3-point scoring record this month. Each unique NFT was priced at $499 and launched this Monday on 2974SC.com with the collection quickly selling out. Curry is planning to donate 100% of his profits to the “Eat. Learn. Play” foundation that he and wife, Ayesha Curry, established in 2019.
The Sandbox and its native token SAND have been seeing a steady inflow of new funds which resulted in the SAND token hitting an all-time high of $3.61 on November 17th. Since breaking out, the SAND token has given into selling pressure and has retreated back below the $3.30 support level. While further selling pressure is possible in the short term, the growing excitement surrounding the metaverse and virtual properties has driven the price of virtual land higher.
Hot on the heels of recent announcements from tech giants Facebook and Microsoft, the Metaverse has become the next big thing in both crypto and tech communities. While the venture into the virtual realm may be big and bold news for some of the largest corporations in the world, several cryptocurrencies have been built around virtual worlds from the ground up. One seeing recent gains due to all the talk surrounding the Metaverse is The Sandbox, a blockchain gaming developer that allows users to play, create, own, and govern their own gaming experience through owning virtual lands.
