CoinMarketCap, the world’s most-referenced price-tracking website for crypto assets in the rapidly growing cryptocurrency space, is supporting the adoption of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) by partnering with The Sandbox to release CMC Heroes NFTs.
The Sandbox, a community-driven platform where creators can monetize voxel ASSETS and gaming experiences on the blockchain, will create five exclusive ASSET NFTs with CoinMarketCap, inspired by CMC heroes: Brawler, Sage, Liquifier, Hothead, Protector and CoinMarketCaptain.
Once upon a time, in the LANDS of The Sandbox, an old man named Sage was approached by a mythical figure who foretold a prophecy that proclaimed that when all CMC Heroes met in one wallet, CoinMarketCaptain will appear to save the multiverse from a devastating war. Sage went ahead to gather this group of chosen heroes — Brawler, Hothead, Protector, Liquifier,and Sage himself — to bring an end to a devastating war that plagued the multiverse. It is now up to YOU to gather the CMC Heroes Guild into one wallet and summon the savior into The Sandbox – CoinMarketCaptain. Can you do it?
The CMC Heroes can be used within The Sandbox gaming virtual worlds by Creators, with no programming knowledge required.
How to Participate in the CMC LAND and NFT Campaign
The first public LAND sale of 2021 will launch on Feb. 11, 1pm UTC, and last for two days.
There will be 9 ESTATES and 1,200 PREMIUM LANDS available.
Each of the 1,200 PREMIUM LANDS will have two CMC exclusive NFTs.
If you obtain all five CMC NFTs — by purchasing at least three different PREMIUM LANDS — you can claim Captain CMC after the sale has ended.
The 9 ESTATES available in the first wave of sales for 2021 (seven M and two L) will be sold in auction on OpenSea.
The auction will take place in the following way:
- Each ESTATE will also include the six premium CMC hero NFTs
- Each ESTATE is near the CMC 24x24 LAND, making it easier for The Sandbox players to travel there
- The auction will follow the same rules as the UNICEF charity auction

What Is The Sandbox?
The Sandbox is a community-driven platform where creators can monetize voxel assets and gaming experiences on blockchain. A video teaser of the gaming virtual world can be seen below.
The Sandbox is building a unique virtual world where players can build, own and monetize their gaming experiences using NFTs and $SAND, the main utility token of the platform. The Sandbox’s vision is to offer a deeply immersive metaverse in which virtual worlds and games will be created collaboratively and without central authority.
The Sandbox has secured over 60 partnerships, including The Smurfs, Care Bears, Atari, CryptoKitties and Shaun the Sheep to build a fun, creative “play-to-earn” platform that offers virtual worlds and game experiences owned and created by players. The play-to-earn model gives players true ownership of anything they collect in the game, allowing them to trade it to other players (including outside the game on other websites), transfer it to other players, or even resell it.
In the future, CoinMarketCap plans to make more characters and even involve the top coins in NFTs.
"Following our successful $SAND token Learn & Earn campaign with CoinMarketCap, we're partnering with them to launch our exclusive new CMC NFT Hero characters that players and Creators can use to create their own adventures and stories,” said Sebastien Borget, COO and co-founder of The Sandbox. “This is our first contribution to making 2021 THE year of NFTs in collaboration with the world most-referenced crypto community and certainly not the last!”
Batuhan Dasgin, head of business development at CMC, said:
“Since the inception of Bitcoin, direct ownership of digital assets has been in the spirit of the crypto industry. NFTs encapsulate this idea and expand it to new frontiers. The Sandbox is one example where users can become a real part of its metaverse with ownership rights in the assets that come with it. Hence, CoinMarketCap is excited to partner with The Sandbox to participate in and support the fast growing NFT space by obtaining LAND and issuing CMC NFTs to The Sandbox & CoinMarketCap communities.“
