Snoop Dogg has announced a partnership with The Sandbox, an upcoming Ethereum-based metaverse game that allows users to modify and share 3D experiences.
In the game, Snoop will have his own custom-themed world, complete with a mansion, playable Snoop avatars, and plenty of marijuana-themed artwork. There will be more NFT drops in the future, as well as an in-game concert, as seen in the trailer below.
On Wednesday night, Snoop teased the announcement by telling his Twitter followers to “Follow the pocketbook.” The Snoop Dogg Private Party Pass, an NFT produced by The Sandbox, was discovered in the Cozomo de’ Medici wallet on the OpenSea marketplace.
Only 1,000 NFT party permits will be made available, with 650 of them accessible for purchase on The Sandbox’s marketplace.
The remaining 212 will be given away during airdrops to those who acquire LAND plot NFTs from the next Snoop LAND sale. Snoop has already given out a few on his Cozomo Twitter account.
Snoop Dogg stated in a statement, “I’m always looking for new ways to interact with fans, and what we’ve built in The Sandbox is the future of virtual hangouts, NFT drops, and exclusive shows.”
“We’ll have a new set of Dogg-style NFTs that users can include into game sessions to enhance this online experience to the next level for sure,” says the developer.
The Walking Dead, Atari, Gemini’s Winklevoss Twins, and the iconic Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT collection are among the many businesses and creators who have teamed with The Sandbox.
Later this year, The Sandbox hopes to launch a public alpha test for people to get a first look at the 3D areas, which LAND NFT owners can personalize, sell, and share with other players.
An NFT functions as a deed of ownership for a rare digital item—in this example, one of 1,000 passes to a private party within The Sandbox’s game environment, as well as 3D avatars that users can manage within the game.
Snoop’s NFT wallet was examined using DappRadar’s portfolio tool, which revealed a collection worth more than $17 million and primarily concentrated on Ethereum NFTs.
Nine of the extremely valuable CryptoPunks, including one believed to be worth $4.6 million on its own, are among the highlights.
Snoop also has a large collection of Art Blocks NFTs, including pieces from the Chromie Squiggles and Fragments of an Infinite Field series.
He also has several Rare Pepes, which are early NFTs that were first issued on the Bitcoin-based Counterparty network.
They’re unauthorised NFTs based on illustrator Matt Furie’s iconic Pepe meme, which he used to target other unauthorized Pepe-based NFT efforts this year.
