The Sandbox — a decentralised community-driven gaming ecosystem where creators can share and monetise voxel assets and gaming experiences on the Ethereum blockchain — is extremely bullish about the UAE goverment’s robust plans to adopt Web3.0 technology.
Bertrand Levy, senior vice-president global partnerships, The Sandbox, attended Khaleej Times’ one-day event Metavision on Wednesday.
“We are a global brand with around 350 offices and have seen that luxury brands were among first to make their presence in metaverse. The key to success in Web3.0 is all about what experiences are you trying to create. The Web3.0 will open opportunities for creators and creativity,” said Levy.
Animoca’s brand, The Sandbox’s ‘Dubaiverse’ will be launched through local partners that include a UAE media group. Animoca Brand’s Dubai-themed metaverse will mirror the Sandbox’s Hong Kong ‘Mega City,’ a gaming metaverse and virtual cultural hub based on the Asian financial hub of Hong Kong. The Dubaiverse will reportedly be built through local partnerships, including firms in the film, music, entertainment, acting, finance, real estate, and gaming industries.
