The British Museum Awakens to The Sandbox Metaverse

Travel back in time as the British Museum, founded in 1753, opens up to the virtual world of The Sandbox (SAND). Thanks to an exciting collaboration, the British museum will present a digital collection of NFT collectibles, offering gamers a unique chance to discover human history and culture from a new angle.

Once upon a time, in 1753, in London’s Bloomsbury district, there was an iconic museum dedicated to the memory of mankind. The British Museum, custodian of over seven million objects from every corner of the globe, was about to write a new chapter in its history. That chapter was filled with pixels, blockchain and alternate realities – it was the advent of the metaverse.

In an innovative collaboration, the British Museum teamed up with blockchain game The Sandbox (SAND) to bring to life a one-of-a-kind experience. Beyond the stone walls and ancient past, the museum’s treasures would be adorned in virtual garb: digital NFT collectibles reflecting the riches of the British Museum since its inception.

Under the guidance of S├ębastien Borget, COO and co-founder of The Sandbox, the magic began to happen. Players of this virtual world would now be able to marvel at the British Museum’s incredible collections of history, art and human culture, no matter where they were in the real world.

A strong link with The Sandbox!

It was a new era, in which boundaries were blurring and the heritage of humanity was finding a place in an ever-evolving digital universe. Visitors to the British Museum, whether history buffs or novices, would experience an unparalleled adventure, buoyed by the innovation and audacity of an unlikely alliance between culture and technology.

And in this quest for the unknown, the British Museum, with all its grandeur and prestige, was not going it alone. The Sandbox had already established strong links with iconic names such as Havas, HSBC, Jamiroquai, Tony Hawk, Snoop Dogg, Playboy and Renault. Bold partnerships that redefined the boundaries of what was possible in the world of blockchain gaming.

But that wasn’t all, as The Sandbox also boasted over 300 other prestigious partners. Music giants like Warner Music Group, legendary universes like The Rabbids, fashion icons like Gucci Vault, and iconic pop culture figures like The Walking Dead, Deadmau5, and of course, the lovable CryptoKitties.

And as the adventure unfolded, the price of SAND in the real world experienced its ups and downs. From a high of $8.50 in November 2021, it had plummeted to $0.43, but the intrinsic value of this epic could not be measured in numbers. It was the culmination of a dream, a vision in which the real and the virtual merged to offer an unparalleled experience to enthusiasts the world over.
