Virtuals worlds in the land of blockchain
The Sandbox is the latest example of a blockchain-based VR project that allows its users to purchase a limited supply of virtual land. As Cointelegraph reported in a recent analysis of similar projects, the users of Ethereum-based VR world Decentraland have spent over $1 million on digital land.
The Sandbox has recently announced its third land presale after its mobile creation game has seen over 40 million downloads. The game has also attracted the attention of the gaming industry veterans Square Enix, known for releasing the Final Fantasy franchise. The video game giant has invested $2 million in the project.
