Popular cryptocurrencies witnessed millions of dollars in land transactions over the course of seven days, indicating that virtual real estate is thriving in the Metaverse. According to recent research issued by DappRadar, sales of virtual non-fungible tokens (NFT) land on top metaverse crypto assets, The Playground (SAND).
The Metaverse has been a popular issue in recent months, particularly since Mark Zuckerberg openly promoted it as part of his new enterprise. As a result, metaverse coins have risen in value as new investors find potential in the business. The Sandbox (SAND) has benefited directly from this. SAND has risen more than 5,000 percent from its low in June (from top to bottom). It is no surprise that they have major partners, such as Snoop Dogg and Adidas, who assist in providing basic value to the coin.
The Sandbox is one of the Metaverse's expanding ecosystems, with a total of 166,464 land pieces. Players who buy these land parcels may create, control, and monetize their virtual worlds. The Sandbox, in theory, creates a virtual economy in which stakeholders, such as creatives and gamers, may exhibit their content or games while collecting SAND token incentives for participation.
While the initiative has been in operation since 2019, the first play-to-earn season began on November 29. This achievement has resulted in a huge increase in the demand for land parcels on The Sandbox. According to September land sale rates, a plot of land might get as much as 1011 SAND ($7,153 at current values). The amount is likely to skyrocket with the launch of the 'Play The Alpha' programme, which will run through December 20.
As of December 9, 2021, SAND stays at no.39 with a price of $5.29.
- MetaFlower super mega yacht NFT sells for $650,000 in The Sandbox. The three-story yacht is outfitted with two helipads, a disco, hot tubs, and a DJ booth. It was created as part of The Sandbox's upscale NFT line.
- Other digital assets include private islands, speed boats, and jet skis. The collection of 100 private islands was completely sold out in less than 24 hours. A block of property in The Sandbox sold for $4.3 million, while a virtual luxury boat went for $650,000. The world of digital assets is clearly exploding.
- In the previous week, the four largest virtual worlds attracted a total of over 6000 merchants. The Sandbox leads the pack in terms of both the number of traders and sales. With almost $86 million in trading activity, it also recorded the biggest trading volume.
- The Sandbox offered new NFTs, expected sale on December 10, 2021.

As the world's rich and famous begin to take note of DeFi prospects, there has been a tremendous land grab for the greatest digital assets in some of the most prominent metaverse initiatives. Buyers are picking up sought-after assets on a weekly basis. This is a continuation of a tendency that can be found on all metaverse platforms. Buyers are establishing their place in the virtual world while sellers are cashing in. People are increasingly avoiding the actual world in favour of virtual joy. Why spend time in a reality where Covid is the centre of attention when you can hang out with other artists in a virus-free haven?
Notably, The Sandbox community has surpassed 15,000 users, with an additional 750,000 supporters from different social media networks.
