Unstoppable Domains Partners with The Sandbox to Launch Metaverse Experience

Web3 domain names and digital identity provider Unstoppable Domains has joined hands with decentralized metaverse The Sandbox and Web3 gaming collectives Tuschay Studios and BoopGoop to launch Unstoppable Experience.

Per the press release making the crypto news rounds, this is the first live community competition involving a major Web3 brand inside The Sandbox.

It stated that,

“Unstoppable Experience represents Unstoppable Domains’ entry into metaverse creation for the first time, providing users with tools to own unique avatars and digital assets usable across all games in The Sandbox.”

Each collectible represents the player’s identity and accomplishments within the game.

The high-octane contest is a live multiplayer game where up to four players compete to top the scoreboard by painting the most tiles in the MetaCube with their avatar. No two games are ever the same.

Players will be able to interact in real time within a game. There is an exclusive hangout lounge on Unstoppable Domains’ land for UD domain holders to connect and collaborate.

A marketplace features exclusive wearable items for avatars. Also, the first-week participants will receive a free collectible.

Per Sandy Carter, COO and Head of Business Development at Unstoppable Domains, “this venture celebrates how digital identity can become a dynamic part of the gaming universe.”
