FAMOUS SKATER WILL BE COLLABORATING WITH THE SANDBOX AND AUTOGRAPH!
The Sandbox, which describes itself as “part virtual real estate, part amusement park,” will soon house Tony Hawk Land.
It is based on the Ethereum blockchain and enables users to trade cryptocurrency to access virtual land plots and monetize voxel assets by exchanging in-game products for NFTs.
Tony Hawk’s skateboards, gear, and clothing will be the inspiration for NFTs made by Autograph.
The Autograph high-fidelity avatars will be converted into 3D voxel versions with in-game capability for experiences, giving utility and value to their owners, according to a press statement. “The Sandbox will make these NFTs interoperable in its open metaverse.”
“The first video games and personal computers with CGI capabilities got me interested in new technology.” Hawk declared: “The metaverse attracts me, and I am delighted to introduce our culture into the virtual world of The Sandbox.”
Over 300 agreements with brands including Ubisoft (Rabbids), The Walking Dead, Snoop Dogg, Adidas, Deadmau5, The Smurfs, Care Bears, and Atari already exist in the virtual world.
