owned by Animoca metaverse The sandbox announces the arrival of combinations: in this case, the consulting firm PwC Hong Kong.
The Sandbox team said on Thursday that the business council bought LAND, virtual real estate represented as a non-fungible token (NFT). A representative from PwC Hong Kong did not say what land he bought or at what price. Recent sales have seen LAND go for around $ 10,000 a pop, according to blockchain data.
“We will leverage our expertise to advise clients who wish to embrace the metaverse on the range of challenges presented by this emerging global digital phenomenon,” said William Gee, partner of PwC Hong Kong, in a statement.
That didn’t stop digital prospectors from taking hold if the hordes started arriving en masse soon.
“The metaverse is open for business,” Sandbox COO Sebastien Borget said in a statement. “We invite PwC Hong Kong to discover how The Sandbox fosters new, immersive experiences and new ways for brands to connect with customers. “
LAND sales have grown steadily since late October, or around when Facebook changed its name to Meta.
The Sandbox’s native token, SAND, also rode the wave of consumer curiosity – from around 80 cents before Facebook’s announcement to an all-time high of $ 8.40 on November 25.
SAND was trading at $ 6.01 at time of publication, up 14% in the past 24 hours, according to the data site CoinGecko, PwC news appearing to be contributing to the price spike.
