“Our partnership with The Sandbox adds a new layer of possibility in the metaverse, with the ownership of the virtual real estate. As a first-mover, Warner Music has secured the equivalent of beachfront property in the metaverse. On the LAND, we’ll develop persistent, immersive social music experiences that defy real-world limitations and allow our artists and their fans to engage like never before”
Moreover, the “virtual estate” will also act as a “hybrid space” accommodating a virtual musical theme park and a concert venue.
“As a former entertainment executive, I’m very excited to have one of the biggest music companies in the world with some of the most talented artists joining The Sandbox to create talent-oriented experiences,” as stated by Bertrand Levy, VP of Global Partnerships at The Sandbox
The Sandbox is known to have established several partnerships with leading names traversing different industries including Snoop Dogg, Steve Aoki, and Adidas. According to Coingecko, The Sandbox currently ranks as the third leading game cryptocurrency after Decentraland and Axie Infinity with an average market capitalization of $3.2 billion.
