The Sandbox, a leading decentralized gaming virtual world and a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, has confirmed that it will host its first official summit in Singapore as part of the Web3 Matters event presented by Enjinstarter for industry conference All That Matters on Sept. 26 at *SCAPE.
"Understanding the metaverse is a must for established brands and Web2 businesses looking to integrate Web3, and Sandbox is a voice that needs to be listened to on matters Web3 and metaverse," said Prakash Somosundram, co-founder and CEO of Enjinstarter.
The summit will also play host to the launch of Metaverse for Good, an initiative by metaverse architecture firm Smobler Studios and a consortium of partners including Enjinstarter, Octava Foundation, a grant maker and Aventis Graduate School that recently launched its metaverse campus on The Sandbox. The Sandbox recently announced a US$1.2 million seed-round investment in Smobler Studios. Dr. Loretta Chen, co-founder of Smobler Studios, will be present to launch Metaverse for Good.
