Introducing the Metaprints Social Hub Passes — Your Gateway To Incredible Experiences
Metaprints is the gateway for brands to accelerate their presence in numerous metaverse ecosystems in one simple step. Now, with Metaprints’ new Social Hub Pass, metaverse explorers can hang out and meet like-minded users through unique branded experiences built to bring their favorite brands to life within The Sandbox.
“The Sandbox Social Hub Pass gives holders exclusive access to a brands’ Social Hub Experience in The Sandbox before the general public,” said Bondly CEO and Metaprints Founder Harry Liu. “Fans who own one of these exclusive passes get to be involved with branded experience creation at the development stage, with the ability to pass along creative feedback, in addition to discounts on asset minting and entry into a dedicated branded experience within The Sandbox metaverse.”
Backed by Animoca Brands, Metaprints has a unique network of the biggest metaverse projects in the space that allows it to facilitate the creation and curation of branded assets across multiple platforms through one partnership.
In a nutshell: Metaprints is creating an NFT ecosystem flywheel where we make it easy for people to access digital assets of a certain brand, like real estate, characters, fashion, and more, across multiple metaverses.
Metaprints’ Recent Genesis NFT Sale
To achieve our aim of creating a symbiotic relationship between brands and their community, we launched our Genesis NFT sale on 19th December 2021, selling 1,000 NFTs for each of 10 exciting brands initially centered around the crypto industry.
Metaprints Genesis NFTs are branded asset ‘blueprints’ sold to buyers to facilitate the creation of 3D assets required in metaverse platforms by some of the best digital artists and animators. Genesis NFT holders also receive rewards equating to 20% of all sales of that brand’s assets in the metaverse, ensuring everyone through the chain including fans of each brand benefits from the model. Genesis NFT ownership also provides early whitelist access to asset sales from the brands they love.
Next Milestone: Social Hub Pass Sale
At Metaprints, we understand that there are fans of certain protocols who are looking for new ways to engage, such as owning Sandbox assets of the crypto project, or deciding what events should be held in the metaverse.
Metaprints makes this a reality. We are organizing a Social Hub Pass sale in May for our 10 Genesis brands, giving holders exclusive priority access to that brand’s customized branded experience within The Sandbox, including:
*Note: The Social Hub Pass corresponding to the brand will only give you access to that brand’s Social Hub within The Sandbox — 1 pass for 1 project’s Social Hub. For example, owners of the Polygon Social Hub Pass will not be eligible to enter the Kylin branded experience, only the dedicated Polygon one.
More details will be announced in due course, but let’s walk through some basics of the Social Hub Pass sale.
Why are we building social hubs for brands?
By providing exclusive experiences in The Sandbox to Social Hub Pass owners, we hope to leverage Metaprints as a vehicle to enhance community engagement for the 10 selected projects. Their respective communities will be whitelisted for the Social Hub pass sale and gain exclusive access to metaverse experiences. Brands and projects can interact with their fans in a virtual world with 3D assets and accessories, all managed through each project’s DAO.
What are social hubs? What can users do there?
We believe the metaverse experience should mimic real-life experiences. We are developing these social hubs to create an epicenter of all activities for real fans of the brands to gather and socialize. Within these social hubs, our brand partners will offer various events and experiences. For example, users may have the ability to:
- Attend events (AMAs, conferences, talks, etc.)
- Visit art galleries and music festivals
- Collect branded items in the metaverse for a discount on a service/program in the real-world
- Play games
- Interact with other users and get information about what the brands are currently working on (their latest products, news, etc.)
What can these Social Hub Passes do? Do users need an Alpha pass to access the Sandbox?
- Users only need to hold a Metaprints Social Hub pass in their wallet to access the Social Hub of the 10 affiliate projects within the Sandbox
- No need to hold a Sandbox Alpha pass to access
Three utilities are attached to the Social Hub Pass:
- Enjoying exclusive access to a project’s Sandbox Social Hub Experience
- Premium Sandbox Assets whitelist + 10% discount, in the form of cashback*, applicable to the first three sales for that brand. Assets include avatars, vehicles, and items that can be used in the metaverse. More details will be announced in due course for the asset sale.
- Vote on the creative direction of assets being created in the Sandbox for the brand(s) that you support by owning their Social Hub Pass(es).
*The 10% discount for each brand’s sale will be redeemed via ‘cashback’ in the token of purchase, airdropped to each buyer within 14 days of the sale. We will continue to investigate options to allow discounts to be applied at point of sale for users in future.
How can users benefit from the Social Hub Pass sale?
The biggest supporters and investors of each of our brand partners will now have the chance to experience each project and interact with them in a completely new way.
The exclusive access offered by the Social Hub Pass gives a select group of people the ability to interact and network with each other, participate in events of the hosting project, interact with members of the project’s team, and receive future perks and alphas offered by each project, such as potential token airdrops, exclusive access to sales or other events, and more.
In addition, sales of each brand’s Social Hub Pass will be conducted in both $BONDLY and that partner’s token, helping both communities and providing increased utility for everyone.
It should be noted that in order to enter each Social Hub experience you will require a separate NFT specific to the contract format used by The Sandbox platform. This NFT will be airdropped to Social Pass holders at a later date to be announced, prior to the launch of the branded Social Hub experiences. Be sure to hold the Social Hub Pass NFT minted on the sale date in order to airdropped your special pass compatible with The Sandbox.
Social Hub Passes will be limited, so be sure to continue following our social channels for the latest updates on whitelisting and the sale!
