Land Deals and The Sandbox Launch Meta Hour in the Metaverse

    • Technology

This week there was some big news from the Metaverse. We look at the alpha launch of The Sandbox, which is a four-year in the making Metaverse that is geared towards building gaming worlds and land development for brands. There were also two big virtual land buys, one last week and one this week, each breaking the record for the largest single virtual land purchase. The first record breaking deal was last week for $2.43M by the Metaverse Group and was for 116 parcels of land in Decentraland. Then this week the Republic Realm purchased $4.3M of land in The Sandbox from video game developer Atari. We wrap up with responding to Bill Maher's closing comments on his show Real Time, where he downplays and says we need to avoid building Metaverses.
 
This week's Meta Hour cocktail is the Jalapeño Mezcal Metarita, a super spicy and smokey margarita that will make your mouth water.
