The Sandbox continues to make progressive strides forward
The Sandbox and World of Women have announced a partnership to bring the NFT collective into The Sandbox. The move is seen as an effort to promote inclusivity and equality in the metaverse.
Following DappRadar’s report of Billboard and World of Women’s (WoW) collaboration, The Sandbox has teamed up with WoW to make the metaverse a space where anyone, regardless of gender, can feel welcome. This move by Animoca Brands (parent company of The Sandbox) isn’t the first one they’ve made with a shrewd eye on the potential commercial opportunities of the metaverse.
By making the new blockchain-based marketplace as welcoming of women as possible, it opens up a whole new audience to sell its products to. Why sell to half the world when you can sell to everyone?
The partnership will see:
- The creation of a WoW Foundation. The foundation will have a $25 million grant to promote women in decentralized online space.
- The partners work together to curate an interactive world within The Sandbox dedicated to women-centric causes.
- A WoW museum built on a 2×2 plot of LAND and a WoW University which will offer guidance and tutorials on how to get started in web3.
Animoca Brands will now also be able to leverage its new relationship with WoW and potentially involve the feminist NFT community in more of its many other blockchain platforms.

The Sandbox and WoW partnership announcement coincides with the game’s March 3rd launch of Alpha Season 2.
