Gaming Platforms FlickPlay, The Sandbox Moves Toward Metaverse

Gaming platforms FlickPlay and The Sandbox have announced a new partnership that will allow players to use a blockchain asset on both platforms.

The partnership will bring people one step closer to realizing the Metaverse, a collective virtual open space created by the convergence of virtually enhanced physical and digital reality.

FlickPlay and The Sandbox will solve an important factor in the actualization of the metaverse which is interoperability. Interoperability simply means that people can move freely between virtual worlds on different platforms.

FlickPlay, an app that combines the physical and virtual worlds, announced its first collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) called Flicky. Flicky includes the design of an anthropomorphic chameleon wearing different clothes.

The deal between FlickPlay and The Sandbox allows users who purchase a Flicky to use it as an avatar on The Sandbox.

According to Pierina Merino, founder and CEO of FlickPlay, Flicky owners will first unlock a version of the chameleon to use on The Sandbox. Later, and later they will be able to use the exact version of the digital assets that are stored on the blockchain in both games.
