Did you know that there are over 3.2 billion gamers around the world and that the average gamer spends $100 - $200 per year on gaming?
Cryptocurrencies have been competing to get in on the gaming industry and one of them, The Sandbox recently went interstellar after launching its metaverse that offers virtual real estate, called Land NFTs.
Much like the real world, investors can buy property and develop their assets where users can then create avatars and meet, work and play.

At the beginning of this year, The Sandbox announced that its first wave of public LAND sales broke NFT record sales with nearly $3 million dollars raised.
By early November 2021, The Sandbox announced that it had raised a staggering $93 Million in a funding round led by one of the biggest investment companies in the world, SoftBank.
