In partnership with top brands like Paris Hilton, TIME, Tony Hawk, Snoop Dogg, Cut the Rope and FaZe Clan, these LAND sales will give patrons the ability to host parties near the Playboy Mansion, create an experience of living near Cipriani or immerse yourself in the world of Nipsey Hussle in Marathon City.
The Sandbox, a decentralized virtual world and subsidiary of Animoca Brands, today reveals the sale of 1900 lots of LAND. Future owners of LAND will effectively own their own property and will have a selection of 14 major brands and celebrities as neighbors, effective November 24, 2022 at 13:00 UTC. A global leader in virtual real estate, The Sandbox will sell lots of LANDs among its 166,464 LANDs that already make up its mertaverse valued at over $1 billion based on the average price of the 100,000 LANDs sold to date.
This sale will run in three distinct waves from November 2022 until early 2023. Each of these sales will be themed around a particular district with carefully selected partners and brands. Examples include Tony Hawk, FaZe Clan, Playboy, The Marathon, Cipriani, TIME, Paris Hilton, L’Officiel, Cut the Rope, Voxies, Dogami, Playground Studio and Hermit Crab. Each wave will contain standard and premium LANDS, as well as larger exclusive ESTATES that will be auctioned directly on OpenSea. An exclusive ESTATE located right next to Snoop Dogg’s LAND will also be auctioned off on OpenSea, giving users yet another chance to get closer to the SnoopVerse.
Premium LANDS close to each major brand are exceptionally rare and include an exclusive selection of premium digital collectibles aimed at fans of these major brands. Premium LANDS also increase wagering rewards and allow owners to use their collectibles in Game Maker to create unique experiences.
To ensure a democratic purchasing process, opportunities to participate in LAND Standard and Premium sales will be granted through:
- A lottery system that will ensure fair access to LANDs
- A KYC process, which will validate that all participants are individuals with enough SANDs (at least 1011 SANDs) on the Polygon network to acquire a LAND on their account.
- All sweepstakes will play out the same way for each wave, where an individual can register for either standard or premium or both.

First of all there is Dreaming Californiarepresenting California-themed brands such as Playboy and The Marathon, the arts district Gallerywhich brings together partners such as TIME and Paris Hilton, and finally Voxel madness, a video game-focused neighborhood featuring Voxies and Dogami.
