PwC Comes To The Sandbox

Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC), a multinational professional services network, has acquired a LAND site in the Sandbox metaverse. LAND is an NFT representing a plot of virtual real estate in the game. However, the announcement shared by Animoca Brands, the firm behind Sandbox, didn’t specify which plot PwC bought or for how much.

However, recent data shows LAND has sold for over $10,000 per plot. In detail, PwC is a global network of firms in 156 countries, employing more than 295,000 people. PwC’s Hong Kong division acquired the Sandbox real estate.

The metaverse is open for business. We welcome PwC Hong Kong to experience how The Sandbox fosters new immersive experiences and ways for brands to connect with customers. It’s an exciting time – and PwC is at the forefront of this emerging frontier.

Sebastien Borget, COO of The Sandbox, said in the announcement.

The onboarding of professional services firms like PwC paves the way for other organizations interested in joining Web 3.0. In addition, PwC can help firms less familiar with Web 3.0 technology by providing advisory services.
