The Sandbox, NFT Metaverse, acquires two Moonbirds on Opensea
Sandbox adds to non-fungible tokens collection by purchasing two moonbirds at a record-breaking fee.
The Sandbox metaverse project recently purchased two moonbirds- moonbirds #9619 and moonbirds #2642 at 64.9ETH (worth $192,600) and 350ETH (worth $1,038,508), respectively on popular NFT marketplace OpenSea, thereby making Moonbird #2642 the most expensive moonbird ever sold.
Founded in 2012 by Pixowl co-founders Arthur Madrid and Sebastien Borget, The Sandbox is an Ethereum-based NFT gaming metaverse that enables non-tech savvy users to create, sell, and monetize their virtual reality NFTs.
Its ecosystem consists of three integrated products and services that facilitate user-generated content creation. These products include VoxEdit, a program for creating the NFT game assets; A Marketplace for selling and buying those assets; and Game Maker, which players use to build their own game experiences without coding.
In the words of Sebastian Borget,
"The Sandbox is emerging as the main NFT-based, open metaverse, where the content, economy, and governance will be in the hands of the players and creators who contribute to our virtual world."
Meanwhile, Moonbirds is a collection of 10,000 utility-enabled PFPs that feature a richly diverse and unique pool of rarity-powered traits.
Prominent American internet entrepreneur Kevin Rose created it as part of his recently established Proof Collective — a private members-only collective of NFT collectors and artists.
