Sandbox and Coincheck Are Building New Metaverse City

According to a report on January 31, Sandbox, a well-known company that promotes the use of Gaming Metaverse and Crypto service provider Coincheck announced that the two companies have started building a new Metaverse city.

The project, called Oasis TOKYO, is a near-future city being built on Coincheck land. According to the company, details of the new city will be announced in spring 2022.

Coincheck stated that Oasis TOKYO is a Metaverse and Non-Fungible Token (NFT) community platform that presents the concept of a near-future city in the year 2035 and aims to provide a forum for artists from different fields and their fans to communicate and, at the same time businesses to encourage them to develop their communities.

In September 2020, Coincheck and The Sandbox partnered to promote The Sandbox’s advertising and brand awareness in the Japanese market. Additionally, the two companies worked together to increase land sales on the NFT marketplace called Coincheck NFT.
