  • PMG’s Meltwater Champions Chess Tour is coming to The Sandbox metaverse!

    Metaverse chess incoming

    Chess, being one of the fastest growing e-sports, will certainly contribute to mainstream NFT adoption. The large number of professional and casual players, followers and fans will soon be able to enjoy a far more immersive experience through the metaverse.

    Lympo’s roadmap includes several interesting projects to develop metaverse chess. Firstly, they will focus on bringing the tournament into The Sandbox. The tournament will have social tokens for fans to interact with their favorite players. Holders will also be eligible to participate in voting sessions, lotteries, questionnaires, and polls.

    In addition, the sports NFT platform will create custom-designed and animated NFT collections depicting top chess players such as Magnus Carlsen, Anish Giri, and Hans Niemann. These individualized NFT digital collectible cards will be integrated into Lympo’s NFT ecosystem, offering additional utility.

    While both companies are working on a blockchain chess-inspired game centered around the tournament, PMG also has plans to create virtual experiences in The Sandbox’s open metaverse.
