Ethereum’s Sandbox game announces the second presale of 6,192 pieces of virtual lands bringing in 800 ETH, or approximately 206,000 USD.
Our second LAND presale SOLD OUT over the weekend! We thank all our supporters that got one of the 6,192 pieces of the metaverse and all of the 19 amazing partners that took a stake on our second LAND #presale. Check out the presale summary: https://t.co/25fp43vbXD#Blockchain — The Sandbox (@TheSandboxGame) February 17, 2020
The game has 166,464 pieces of LAND in total, meaning about 5% of the available space has already been sold in these presales.
According to Decrypt , among the major buyers are other gaming companies such as:
My Crypto Heroes
Old Skull Games
Games with nonfungible token technology like TSG are the key to the mass adoption of crypto. What started as a mobile creation game with more than 40 million downloads has become one of the most coveted blockchain games on the market.
COO and cofounder Sebastien Borget said:
“The success of the first two presales of The Sandbox strongly validates our approach to building a gaming metaverse, showing the growing interest from creators and gamers in the benefits of true digital ownership that will allow them to monetize their future creations within an open economy. We can see without any doubt that users are ready to jump into our vision of the Metaverse.”
Blockchain-based games like The Sandbox (TSB) are fulfilling these needs for a new generation of users, and Ethereum has been quick to capitalize on its success.
The Sandbox is expected to launch in late 2020. However, a third presale of the highly desired LAND may be announced in the near future.
