The Sandbox today announced a partnership with TIMEPieces, TIME’s NFT community initiative, to build a “TIME Square” in the Metaverse. Remarkably, this is TIME’s very first objective in the virtual world. Inspired by New York City’s iconic neighborhood, TIME Square will be a place for gathering, art and commerce. Let’s take a closer look at the TIME x The Sandbox partnership.
About TIME x The Sandbox Partnership
TIME President Keith A. Grossman announced the partnership during the Sandbox event this week NFT.NYC Conference. In addition, he published an open call for architects to design the upcoming TIME Square in the Metaverse. The team is looking for a visionary architect who can recreate the iconic travel destination in a voxel avatar.
“Our goal is to create a destination that will be at the heart of the Metaverse,” said Grossman. “We are happy to be able to use this now [TIMEPieces] community as we try to find the architect designing TIME Square in the metaverse.
He added that the destination will offer an immersive experience. It will also create a “natural bridge” between TIMEPieces’ virtual community and TIME’s global relationships. It will also bring together the unique IPs of TIME Studios, TIME for Kids and their IRL events.
What is TIME Square?
TIME’s Sandbox and TIME Square will serve as integrative destinations that offer unique experiences to TIMEPieces holders. This includes access to discussions, events, demonstrations of TIME Studios projects and educational experiences.
Essentially, the destination will bring to life the spirit and energy of New York City’s iconic Times Square. If you want to apply to be an architect to create this virtual space, keep your eyes peeled TIMEPieces website.
