There’s a good chance that you’ve never heard of the The Sandbox. So I’ll give you a quick intro. At a high level, The Sandbox is a play where you have the chance to play, create, own, and govern in a virtual world made up of players.
From the NFT-side, it could represent one of the early metaverse land grands. So what land is being sold? Here’s a map:
As you can see, there are a lot of small, 1×1 properties, and some larger properties like PONG from Atari who announced their partnership last year:
Atari® — one of the world’s most iconic consumer brands and entertainment producers — has announced a new partnership with Animoca Brands and its subsidiary TSB Gaming Ltd — the creators of the revolutionary blockchain-based gaming metaverse, The Sandbox. Hit Atari properties such as Asteroids®, Centipede®, Pong®, and RollerCoaster Tycoon® will be brought to life within the 3D voxel world of The Sandbox, an interactive virtual world that launches this year on the Ethereum blockchain.(Source – Atari)
On the map above you can see Atari has some pretty badass property both for PONG and Rollercoaster Tycoon. Other companies in the crypto world like Binance and CoinMarketCap have premium real estate. Which leads to the NFT real-estate I’m looking at, CMC connected 1×1’s.
Translation – 1 tile by 1 tile plots of land, connecting to the CMC (CoinMarketCap) property. Or in other words, land directly connected to Disneyland (or its Metaverse alternative).
Now what CMC puts on their land will impact the price of the land around it, but if The Sandbox does takeoff, this is like buying property alongside the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Or it could be a total waste of money and every penny you invest could turn into zero pennies. Just to be clear, investing in anything I’m talking about would be a massive risk, and you shouldn’t look at this as investment advice. Nobody would think this is a safe or sound investment.
While I’m not going all-in on NFTs or anything close to that. I do want to have solid exposure in projects I’m excited about and believe in. I think The Sandbox looks super interesting and I’m going to dive in, buy some land, maybe another couple in-game NFTs and take it from there.
Oh and if you want to go deeper and really follow me down this rabbit hole, check out this video:
As for where I’m buying land on Sandbox, I’m looking here on OpenSea.io. There are over 77,000 Sandbox NFTs available on OpenSea.io, and yes – I’m more interested in the land right now than the token itself…for now at least 🤷♂️
Okay, time for bed, thanks for reading 🙏 🚀
