The Metaverse is going to be a vibrant space that will allow people from all over the world to come together and meet each other in a virtual place. While many sceptics thought that all of this is just going to be a playful idea and a niche, things have changed. The Metaverse is probably going to be the biggest thing in the next few years because it not only creates digital worlds but also new and mostly tokenized markets.
There are two versions of the Metaverse. The first one is a corporate structure that you already know from social media apps. Facebook is aiming to become such a place by rebranding into Meta and offering its users a new way to interact.
The second version of the Metaverse is decentralized. It offers its users to be part of a virtual world and own digital goods and content through tokenization and NFTs. This part of the metaverse will be secured by blockchain technology. The Sandbox is one of many gateways to the decentralized part of the Metaverse.
It is a virtual world that will allow players to interact with each other and even own land through NFTs. Similar to Decentraland, players need an in-game currency to interact with the world and buy or sell items using the SAND token.
But the Sandbox is not only a place to trade content. It will be also possible to create your own content such as items, buildings, and cloth. This opens a lot of room for companies to enter a new digital age and new product lines.
It was yesterday that Adidas announced via Twitter that the company will start the “adiVerse” in cooperation with the Sandbox. It is yet unknown what Adidas has planned exactly but the choices are obvious. They might opt for a digital headquarter that can be visited by customers. This wouldn’t be too much of a surprise after Barbados announced that it is going to open a virtual embassy in Decentraland.
Another possible option would be a digital product line for Adidas sportswear. It is highly likely that people will dress and equip their avatars with items that they really love. And who knows, maybe there will be a special edition of sneakers that will only be available in the Metaverse.

Ripple has been fighting against the SEC in court since December 2020. Some analysts believe that the case could conclude this year, while others argue that each party could try to appeal the court’s decision. Whether the subject is finally settled, all believe the first verdict will provide essential guidance in the US judicial system. Should the SEC lose, then many other crypto projects could be strengthened. Winning the case could mean the SEC could go after many other cryptos.

Today the Bitcoin Cash network will go through a voluntary hard fork to implement an upgrade. One particular part of that upgrade is highly interesting since it introduces tokens on the Bitcoin Cash blockchain. Tokenization has been a topic for several years and it seems that Bitcoin Cash is late for the party. However, Ordinals have proven on Bitcoin that even a late arrival can still unleash a storm and create a billion-dollar market.
