GAMERS looking to claim their stake in the metaverse have got a chance this week with The Sandbox Mega City Land Sale.
Announced in a blog post, the sale is set for Thursday, January 13 and the land is in a new neighbourhood called Mega City.
As always, remember that crypto investments are super risky, so be sure to do some research to understand what you're investing in.
The region already has some land owners, and the hub is home to Hong Kong partners from industries including gaming, finance, real estate, film, music, and entertainment.
When is The Sandbox Mega City Land Sale?
The Mega City Land Sale is taking place this Thursday, January 13 at 1pm UTC, which is 5am PT / 8am ET / 1pm GMT.
The Sandbox land sales take place on the Map of the Sandbox website.
Mega City's land sale is split into lands, premium lands, and estates with the quantity and price of each as follows:
- 61 Lands at 1,011 SAND each
- 95 Premiums at 4,683 SAND each
- 7 Estates to be sold at auction
Based on the current rates, that's £3,316.81 / $4,558.34 for each land, and £15,363.61 / $21,114.45 for each premium land.
How do I buy land in The Sandbox?
You'll need both SAND and ETH to buy land in The Sandbox; SAND covers the land price while ETH is needed for gas fees.
That means you need to set up a crypto wallet and we have our top picks of the best crypto wallets so you can have a peruse before committing to one.
Crypto wallets with official Sandbox support include MetaMask, Bitski, and Venly.
As outlined on The Sandbox blog, you'll need to make sure you're logged in and have your wallet connected.
On the land tab, you can select the plot of land you want to buy (green are taken) and hit 'buy land' or 'buy estate'. And that's that!
But otherwise, head to the map website in plenty of time before the sale starts.
The land will undoubtedly get snapped up fast so plan ahead to figure out what you want to buy.
Being a land owner also comes with benefits like being eligible for an Alpha Pass for beta access to The Sandbox's play-to-earn features.
You have a couple of days to do your due diligence so make sure you swot up before investing in crypto, NFTs, the metaverse etc.
