The Sandbox and Affyn are planning to redefine what interoperability means for metaverse platforms.
The Sandbox, a leading gaming virtual world and subsidiary of Animoca Brands, has just teamed up with Singaporean brand and Web3 company, Affyn. Together, these incredible brands will be supercharging the interoperable metaverse experiences with a pioneer community-focused open metaverse.
This interoperable metaverse is aimed at uniting a community of creators. Their collaboration will build strong ecosystems that merge both physical and virtual worlds.
The Sandbox’s partnership with Affyn would popularize the idea of the metaverse as a continuous shared digital space that is constantly evolving. It aims to sell the dream of the metaverse as a place where worlds blend with each other, and people make a difference.
In a statement, George Wong, the Head of Singapore Sandbox, said that The Sandbox has always loved the ideals of “interoperability and decentralization”.
They are excited to be at the forefront of making this happen. They also hope that more platforms will consider embracing interoperability as it would boost creativity and provide more use-cases to improve metaverse experiences for fans.
Commenting on the development, Lucaz Lee, the CEO and co-founder of Affyn, shared the team’s excitement over their collaboration with The Sandbox.
He stated that both teams love the idea of an open metaverse. This is why they are excited to collaborate. He also added that this open metaverse would give gamers and people who love to explore the virtual world “an even more immersive and interactive experience”.
