Exclusible, the dynamically growing marketplace for luxury NFTs and upscale metaverse real estate, announced it had sold 25 Private Islands on The Sandbox (SAND/USD) for 910 ether (ETH/USD), equivalent to $2.8 million at time of writing.
eToro was among the buyers
Global exchange eToro was one of the notable buyers, as were Paris Saint-Germain F.C. star soccer player Marco Verratti, FC Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman, former world No. 1 tennis player Ana Ivanovic, and FC Basel Co-Owner and Entrepreneur Dan Holzmann among other prominent public figures.
About the Islands
The islands are near one of the primary Sandbox lands and feature options for helipads, furniture, assets, a private harbor, and more. The last islands left were limited to buyers with at least 1 million followers on social media.
Thibault Launay, Co-Founder and CEO of Exclusible, commented:
We are thrilled and humbled to receive such an explosive reception for our Exclusible Private Islands. Selling out our stock of islands in only two weeks demonstrates the high demand for exclusive metaverse assets and experiences. We strive to continue our mission in bringing unique experiences to the metaverse.
Yoni Assia, Founder and CEO of eToro, added:
We are excited to join Exclusible in this venture into the metaverse. Deciding to join the Sandbox and purchase land from Exclusible was a clear choice in joining global innovators and trend-setters as we cross-over to the Metaverse. We look forward to welcoming eToro users and stakeholders to visit us there in the future!
Ana Ivanovic, who recently auctioned off an NFT to raise money for UNICEF Serbia, said:
I am thrilled to partake in this exciting metaverse project.
Kingsley Coman was introduced to Exclusible through his collaboration with CHMPS PARISSE, a French luxury streetwear brand. He said:
I am very glad to enter in the metaverse by joining this exclusive community and developing events and experiences.
Abdel Pom, Designer at CHMPS PARISSE, noted:
As designers and thanks to Exclusible, we strive to continue our mission to bring unique experiences to our VIP community, now in the metaverse.
