Tony Hawk and The Sandbox are collaborating to build the world’s largest skatepark inside the Metaverse
Tony Hawk, The Sandbox, and Autograph are developing a comprehensive Web3 experience for skaters, crypto fans, and gamers worldwide.
The games based on the metaverse continue to attract the interest of individuals who want to discover a virtual place where everyone can have a unique and enjoyable experience outside the boundaries of the real world, despite the bitcoin market’s precipitous drop.
Tony Hawk, one of the world’s most prominent skateboarders, announced his cooperation with blockchain-based virtual environment The Sandbox on July 13. This would be the most recent addition to The Sandbox’s extensive roster of Top-tier collaborations.
According to a video made by The Sandbox and shared by Hawk, Hawk’s metaverse will not only have a marketplace for the sale of skateboards and skate gear, but it will also provide users with the ability to modify their own skateparks.
The Sandbox’s Largest Virtual Skatepark
According to The Sandbox, “Tony Hawk LAND” will consist of 36 plots of land, which is sufficient to qualify it as the biggest skatepark ever developed in the metaverse.
Tony Hawk said in a presentation that the skatepark will be “unprecedented.” Significant words, given that Tony Hawk’s “Tony Hawk Pro Skater” video game franchise made more than $1.4 billion — and has several skateparks and routes. Neither The Sandbox nor Tony Hawk disclosed when this skating metaverse would be released.
Autograph will develop NFTs and avatars based on Tony Hawk as well as his most memorable skateboards, gear, and clothes, such as the one he wore at the 1999 X Games when he performed his renowned 900 (2.5-lap) turn, an “immortal” feat in the realm of skateboarding.
Dillon Rosenblatt, co-founder and chief executive officer of Autograph, said that the firm was thrilled to collaborate with The Sandbox and Tony Hawk to develop new immersive experiences that would be hard to produce outside of the metaverse.
