The Sandbox announces multiple partnerships to build a metaverse megacity
While already a stand-out in the realm of the blockchain metaverse, The Sandbox has gone further this year. A recent press release from the team has announced multiple new partnerships with Hong Kong-based companies.
Featuring companies from industries ranging from film, music, entertainment, acting, professional services, finance, real estate, and gaming, their combined objective? Build Mega City – a cultural hub within The Sandbox, and the metaverse.
In total, the partnership has brought eight prominent names into the metaverse, each with a bullish view of the blockchain world:

- Sun Hung Kai & Co. Limited (SHK & Co) – A highly successful leader in alternative investments, including The Sandbox; having participated in its $93 million Series B funding round. SHK & Co will be building a range of online host investor events, exhibitions, exclusive parties, and private performances on the platform.
