The Sandbox: number of events and games in the metaverse grow

The Sandbox continues to grow in popularity with events featuring Gucci and Playboy and artists such as Paris Hilton and Snoop Dogg leading the way.

Moreover, even in the gaming sector, The Sandbox’s metaverse offers a wide range of games to its users in a decentralized way. Despite this, SAND has followed the general trend of crypto, recording a 10% price dump in the past 7 days.

The Sandbox and the metaverse events by Gucci, Playboy and more

The Sandbox‘s famous metaverse continues to grow in popularity mainly due to events and entertainment organized by the world’s most famous brands.

Among the many, there is the fashion house Gucci, which after purchasing a LAND in The Sandbox last November, then launched the Gucci Vault Land event, which has been live for two weeks.

A way to access a special, virtual storefront, which saw the fashion brand display as many as eight voxel digital collectible garments for use in the metaverse.

In addition to that, Playboy, the famous US adult magazine, also made Metamansion, its virtual space on The Sandbox. And indeed, there were scheduled events, games and experiences using Playboy’s library of content on the metaverse, including somewhat hot NFT collectibles. Obviously, the content was not for everyone, but the experience was largely appreciated!

Even artists have enjoyed and continue to enjoy The Sandbox. Among the many, there is undoubtedly the famous American rapper Snoop Dogg who has created his own area in the metaverse. Where he can meet some restricted users and throw parties worthy of his lifestyle.

The special thing is that in order to access this space, users must possess the Snoop Dogg Party Pass, which is nothing more than an NFT, purchasable on OpenSea.

Moreover, Paris Hilton has just created Parisland and that is a section of The Sandbox dedicated to users who feel like interacting with each other, who knows maybe even managing to find their soulmate. An original way to celebrate Valentine’s Day on a kind of dedicated virtual reality show. 

Top 3 games in the world reminiscent of the “metaverse” style

Before the emergence of The Sandbox, there were already some open world games that somewhat resemble the new metaverse’s game dynamics, albeit much more advanced.

In this regard, Minecraft remains the number one game precisely for those who want to be left alone to literally do whatever they want. And indeed, Minecraft that starts with character creation, then leaves the user free to do whatever they want.

In essence, there aren’t that many rules and users can immerse themselves by exploring caves, doing monster fights or building a farm or even just traveling the world.

In addition to Minecraft, the Red Dead Redemption 2 game also satisfies users. For example, for those who like themed environments and complete experiences of a historical era, they will definitely find a lot of them in this game.

What’s more, users can help decide, for example, the type of person Arthur Morgan will become as he meets some of the most eccentric characters of the dying Wild West. Impressive attention to detail even by Rockstar’s standards.

The third game is Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V). Like RDD2 it is also part of the Rockstar Games house and seems to be a real sales champion, probably because of the ability users have to decide their own adventures in Los Santos.

From performing missions, competing with friends or simply going out looking for trouble. The online community of this game, in particular, is something to see for yourself.

The Sandbox (SAND) and the 10% price dump in the past 7 days

Over the past 7 days, the general trend in crypto has been slightly bearish. In the case of SAND, the price dump has been 10%.

Indeed, looking at the chart for the last week, SAND would touch $0.93 and then return to $0.73 and be, at the time of writing, priced at $0.67.

The metaverse crypto is 49th in market capitalization in the overall cryptocurrency ranking, with over $1 billion in market cap.

Moreover, in the past 5 days, The Sandbox has been given a bearish rating in InvestorsObserver’s Sentiment Score. In essence, the Sentiment Score measures SAND’s performance based on volume, price movement, and overall market sentiment.

This score can be useful for both short-term investors looking to ride a rally and longer-term investors looking to buy pullbacks.
