Tony hawk skatepark in the Sandbox metaverse

They will construct the metaverse skatepark on a 6×6 parcel of Land in the Sandbox, thus the moniker, ‘The largest virtual skatepark ever made’. As part of the in-game functionality, gamers will be given the tools to create their ramp and skating challenges and unlock digital gear.

In the PR, Tony Hawk states his reason for his latest venture into Web3,

“I have been a fan of new technology all of my life – from the first video games and home computers with CGI capabilities – so I am fascinated by the Metaverse, and excited to bring our culture into the virtual landscape of The Sandbox,”
The Sandbox, a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, is a minecraftesque virtual world built on the Ethereum blockchain. Often, the gaming platform is described as part virtual real estate and a part amusement park in the Metaverse. It permits gamers to buy and build on virtual lands, and earn crypto via their gaming experience.

The Sandbox sees Tony Hawk as a perfect partner to add to the over 300 projects, including Snoop Dogg, on the platform.

Sebastian Borget COO, and co-founder of Sandbox, stated, “We share his passion for innovation, creativity, and the drive to constantly create something: this is the energy that powers our entertainment metaverse. There’s no better way to bring skateboarding culture to The Sandbox.”

As part of the partnership, The Sandbox will make any NFTs and digital gear interoperable in the Sandbox Metaverse. They will turn the accompanying 3D avatar NFTs into 3D voxel versions. According to the press release, the “3D voxel versions that have in-game functionality for experiences, adding utility and value for their owners.”
