The Sandbox whole premise is building a Minecraft game on Blockchain where you will be able to create games, buy and sell different smart models like guns, characters, etc and basically build a big world with voxel based buildings and games.
They are on the cusp of selling another 10% of land supply.
“Over 12,000 active participants. 66,000 rewards given to 6,385 distinct users 700k+ MANA, 590k ANJ, 82k+ MATIC, 10k+ wearables, 2k+ Cryptokitties, 33 Axies, 25 LAND and two HTC Exodus 1 phones found and bagged.”
We also noticed a lot of activity in the Discord and social media as people ran around trying to find these chests.
There definitely will be a big desire to ‘win’ things in Decentraland and other virtual worlds.
These have been some of the most fun meetups. Just letting loose and having fun to some great tunes!
I expect these meetups to hitting numbers of 100-300 within a year from now.
This one will be big as well.
We’ve already seen people make money buying and selling land, wearables, names and anything that can be tokenized really.
In time we will be able to tokenize full experiences.
Imagine building a game you can tokenize and only make 10 available to be deployed amongst different worlds.
Other can buy, rent and basically trade full scale businesses!
What Else I Want to See in the Metaverse Collaborative
Work Spaces – I think making along side of your colleagues in a digital way makes sense. Whether it be hold meetings, share work stations and basically disconnect yourself from real world work needs.
If I could share my work screen in real time with others, that would be pretty cool. Kind of like a work office.
And then walk out during ‘break time’ and chat/network with others.
Affiliate Marketing – What? Why? I’ll tell you why. Affiliate Marketing, or sending clients/leads to business was my main source of income for 3-4 years. And it worked amazing.
This should be implemented here eventually. Like my Art Gallery for example, Bring business to artists and larger projects who can incentivise me for business that comes from my marketing channels will help fund me to bring in even more business and grow the economy within the space.
This should be the case for any NFT. As a land owner, I could find ways to display and monetize projects that can give me a cut of their larger activities.
Non-Invasive Advertising – Ok, I don’t want to ‘see’ more ads but I want ads to be smarter. Having a rotating banner in a digital world catches your attention.
But if there was a way an Ad publishing company can create Ad management tools for advertisers and publishers so we can manage and see where our ads are being displayed and whether they are bringing in business, this will give land owners another way of monetizing their experience.
Kind of like Adsense does for websites.
Imagine having 50×50 or 250 x 50 ‘digital’ spots that you can fill, track who watched and monetize.
This will encourage land owners to focus on experience and not monetizing through sales but via ads. Again, in a non-invasive way.
Exploring – The simple act of logging into a digital world and walking around. This gets boring if there’s nothing new but with enough build momentum there should be something new to do everyday.
Non Realistic builds – I’ve seen a lot of builds that try emulate reality. That’s cool but would love to see more fantasy/cyber builds that push the boundaries of not being limited to real world physics.
Removing walls, maybe make experiences upside down, floating islands, or something completely new and whacky that’s never before been seen.
The above shows a lot of promise as we’re at such early stages at building a metaverse. In 2-3 years this space will be absolutely buzzing!
