July 13, Tony Hawk, one of the world’s most popular and recognized skateboarders, is teaming up with the blockchain-based virtual world The Sandbox to build the largest virtual skatepark ever made.” This would be the latest of a large list of Top level partnerships for The Sandbox.
In a video posted by The Sandbox and shared by Hawk, Hawk’s metaverse will not only have a marketplace to deal with skateboards and skate accessories but will also provide users access to editing tools to make the skatepark of their dreams.
Get Ready Largest Virtual Skatepark In The Sandbox
The “Tony Hawk LAND” will feature 36 plots of land, which is enough merit to earn it its title as the world’s largest skatepark ever created in the Sandbox metaverse.
Tony Hawk expressed that the skatepark will be something that has been never seen before. Powerful words, considering that his “Tony Hawk Pro Skater” game series grossed over $1.4 billion and features a lot of skateparks and routes.
The skateboarder also mentions that he has been a fan of emerging technologies all of his life, from the first videogames and home computers with CGI abilities, and hence is fascinated by the metaverse, and keen to bring the skateboarding culture into the virtual landscape of The Sandbox.

Dillon Rosenblatt, co-founder, and CEO at Autograph expressed that the company was excited to work with both The Sandbox and Tony Hawk to create new immersive experiences that would be inconceivable to create outside of the metaverse.
