Message from the Founder
Sebastien Borget, COO of The Sandbox
Japan is a very important market for The Sandbox and we have been strengthening our efforts in Japan since the first half of 2020. In particular, we have entered into a strong strategic partnership with Coincheck in 2020, and have been working with Coincheck NFT (beta version) to sell the LAND needed to start "The Sandbox" game. With the focus on the metaverse on a global scale, we are very excited to be able to offer this opportunity for people to experience the metaverse first-hand.

Coincheck launched Coincheck NFT (beta version), an NFT marketplace integrated with its crypto asset trading service, in March 2021, and has been strengthening collaboration with "The Sandbox" to expand awareness by selling LAND as the first step. As a second step, we will create and foster a community on LAND. NFT is highly compatible with the metaverse, and we believe that "The Sandbox", a metaverse that already incorporates NFT and blockchain, will be one of the most influential metaverses in the world. We believe that The Sandbox will be one of the most promising metaverse in the world. I am very excited to support the creation of a community that connects artists, companies, and fans on the metaverse, and I look forward to working with Coincheck and The Sandbox on this joint effort. I hope you will enjoy this joint effort between Coincheck and The Sandbox.
