On Tuesday June 23rd TSB Gaming will have another sale for 1458 land parcels for their upcoming virtual world The Sandbox. This will be the fourth out of six weekly flash sales. The previous three sales sold out within minutes. The sale on Tuesday starts at 16:00 GMT, which is 18:00 Central European time and 12:00 at lunch in New York and Florida.
These flash sales offer virtual land at a twenty percent discount. In order to prepare properly it’s advised to buy ETH in advance, put it in your Metamask wallet and pre-register on the official website.
This fourth sale takes place in the south east corner of the world of The Sandbox. It’s close to the gigantic estate owned by the NFT collector WhaleShark. If you would miss out this time, don’t worry. On June 30th and July 2nd the team will sell land parcels as well.
Atari dominated during pre-sale
The area these smaller sales are positioned around, is known from the third pre-sale The Sandbox did two months ago. The main attraction in that area was Atari. The gaming brand announced a partnership with The Sandbox, and will bring a variety of games to the blockchain-powered metaverse. At the center of it all is an Atari theme park. Land surrounding that theme park has already increased in value, merely based on speculation.
These land sales do very well for The Sandbox. During the third pre-sale the team made 470 thousand dollars within 24 hours. The average peer-to-peer trading price on OpenSea is 0.91 ETH, but this also includes bigger bundles of land. Currently the cheapest land parcel available costs 0.24 ETH, which is 52 dollars. During the pre-sale land will be priced $38.40.
What is The Sandbox?
The Sandbox is one of the blockchain-powered virtual worlds currently in development. This particular virtual world is supposed to launch its beta test later this year, but before that time there will be one more pre-sale. During this pre-sale gamers, businesses and investors can buy virtual land with a discount. You can now register, to make sure you’re not missing out. The upcoming moon doesn’t count as an official pre-sale, as it’s a smaller event.
The virtual world of The Sandbox consists out of lands, and voxels fill up each of those lands. Visually it will remind many gamers of Minecraft, as both games have this Lego-inspired look to them. However, players are able to buy virtual land and implement any form of monetization. These virtual lands can become mini-games, adventures, virtual shops, extensions of actual webshops, a space for social gatherings, and so on.
TSB Gaming is providing free tools for developers, gamers and content creators to add and monetize content in the virtual world. Creators can use VoxEdit to make objects and avatars, while the upcoming Game Maker will allow users to add game rules to their virtual land.
