Future plans of Apex Athletes
In fact, this collaboration is the first in a series of utilities that nWay has planned for Apex Athletes. As nWay continues to develop new projects, it plans to collaborate with other Animoca Brands projects.
In addition, The Sandbox has mentioned ongoing discussions with nWay to create an “Apex Athletes winter park.” It will also be built in The Sandbox metaverse, “where players will be able to shred on the snowboard halfpipe or showcase the quad axel jump on the ice skating rink.”
Built on the Ethereum blockchain, The Sandbox is a virtual world where users can create, own and monetize gaming experiences. Lately, the platform has continuously populated its metaverse space with celebrities and notable projects.
