If you missed the latest update from our previous announcement with Mantra DAO, the technical roadmap for The Sandbox has changed there will be a slightly longer wait for truly private, gated experiences for Social Hub Pass holders.
The ability to allow NFT-specific gating for experiences is on track for Q1 of 2023 and our first iteration of branded experiences, brought via The Sandbox’s Game Maker platform, will be open to explore for everyone.
For that reason, we’re making sure our Social Hub Pass holders get a whole lot more bang for their buck while they wait! Only Social Hub Pass holders will be able to win exclusive rewards from holding pass(es) and taking part in the games, in addition to receiving free, branded items airdropped to them!
New Utility: Token Rewards
Similar to alpha season pass, Social Hub Pass holders will have the opportunity to complete games and quests to rank in our leaderboard and earn enhanced rewards including $mSAND (Matic network), $mBONDLY, and other partner tokens!
Each brand partner’s Social Hub will have a pool of $1,000 USD worth of tokens per month that can be won by participants. We will have an updated winners board where players can check and see their ranking, with rewards distributed monthly using the following breakdown:
- Gold: $300 USD of $mBONDLY or $300 USD $mSAND
- Silver: $200 USD of $mBONDLY or $200 USD $mSAND
- Bronze: $100 USD of $mBONDLY or $100 USD $mSAND
- Fastest: $150 USD of $mBONDLY or $150 USD $mSAND
- 5 other winners, randomly selected by a 3rd part adjudicator- $50 USD each of $mBONDLY or $mSAND
Quests will be won by completing courses the fastest or collecting the most hidden items! (More details to come as we get closer to the launch of the Social Hubs.)
That means Social Hub Pass holders can really immerse themselves in the Play-to-Earn revolution sweeping GameFi and the Metaverse space.
New Utility: Monthly Item Drops
Holders can now expect not only a 10% discount on branded asset sales and priority access to these sales, but enhanced rewards including no less than 3 free, airdropped branded items on Polygon in Q3 (when permitted) on Sandbox and Decentraland.
As we prepare our users to hang out in the Social Hubs, we have planned monthly wearables drops that the community can flaunt in the Hubs while we slowly release more experiences in different metaverses.
The wearables, developed by the Metaprints team, will be dropped into your wallet as long as you hold a Social Hub pass. There will be something new every month for 3 months, ranging from wearables and weapons, to shields and vehicles. Because you deserve it!
These airdrops will commence after all sale phases have been completed and holders of all assets will also get legendary items. That good news also extends to holders of Genesis NFT(s) as they will receive a percentage of secondary sales as revenue in the months to come!
Vote on the creative direction of assets being produced in The Sandbox for the brand(s) that you hold pass(es) for.
What are the Eligibility Requirements and Sales Mechanics?
The second sale will take place on the Forj Launchpad (dapp.forj.network/market) on July 19th at 12pm EST/4pm UTC.
The following tiers will be eligible for prioritized purchase rights and can participate in our pre-sale:
The following groups will be eligible for prioritized purchase rights:
- Genesis NFT holders and those on the whitelist.
- Buyers who hold either $100 worth of $BONDLY tokens OR $100 worth of the partner’s native token ($ANKR) on our snapshot date (July 15th at 12pm EST).
*Note: Staked tokens do not count toward the $100 minimum. The Social Hub Pass corresponding to the brand will only give you access to that brand’s Social Hub within The Sandbox and Decentraland (once available) — 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.
What Tokens can be Used to Purchase Social Hub Passes?
Since the prices of the passes are denominated in USD, please make sure you have enough $BONDLY or the partner project’s token, $ANKR, that you plan on purchasing for.
The price of the passes in both $BONDLY and our partner project’s native token will be pegged on the morning of the sale. Don’t forget to also leave enough balance to pay for gas!
Social Hub Passes will be limited, so be sure to continue following our social channels for the latest updates on the upcoming sales!
