PwC Hong Kong Buys Land In The Sandbox

The Sandbox, a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, has announced that “PwC Hong Kong has acquired a LAND site in The Sandbox metaverse.” Animoca Brands and its various subsidiaries develop and publish a broad portfolio of blockchain games, traditional games, and other products, many of which are based on popular global brands, such as Formula 1, Disney, WWE, etc. 

Animoca Brands is also a prolific investor with over 100 investments in NFT-related blockchain companies, including Sky Mavis (Axie Infinity), Dapper Labs (NBA Top Shot), OpenSea, Harmony, Bitski, and Alien Worlds.”

In August 2020, Binance Research described The Sandbox as:

The Sandbox is a virtual world built on the Ethereum blockchain, where players can build, own, and monetize their gaming experiences… The SAND token is an ERC-20 utility token that is used for value transfers as well as staking and governance… Players can create digital assets in the form of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), upload them to the marketplace, and integrate into games with Game Maker.

The Sandbox team recently described SAND and LAND as:

SAND is the utility token used throughout The Sandbox ecosystem as the basis for transactions and interactions. It is an ERC-20 utility token built on the Ethereum blockchain. There is a finite supply of 3,000,000,000 SAND.

They noted that the Sandbox Metaverse comprises LANDS owned by players to create and monetize experiences. There will only ever be 166,464 LANDS available, which can be used to host games, build multiplayer experiences, create housing, or offer social experiences to the community.


Ethereum Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

Looking at the Ethereum price chart, we can see that ETH had dropped during the current session. If ETH can find support at this level thanks to the 20-day SMA, we could see ETH recover and rise to $4100. However, if sellers manage to pierce this level of support, we could see ETH drop to $4000.
