Mongol NFT announces ‘Ulaanbaatar in the Metaverse’ a Mongolian cultural center in the metaverse. Located in the Sandbox metaverse, the city will be the largest online center for promoting Mongolia’s culture and history internationally and creating opportunities for trade in goods and services.
With the advancement of cryptocurrency and NFT technology, the development of decentralised cyberspace is also gaining momentum, this can be seen with large corporations spending billions of dollars in investment into this sector. The Sandbox Metaverse is at the forefront of many digital world development projects. With Mongol NFT having purchased land on The Sandbox in November of 2021, we were able to build a multi-layer ancient, modern, and futuristic city in the Metaverse and in doing so compete with some of the world’s largest companies. The city plans to be a hub for Mongolian culture, history, and art.
In December of 2021, Mongol NFT announced a competition to create ‘Ulaanbaatar in the Metaverse’ aimed to envision Ulaanbaatar in “The Sandbox” using programs such as Minecraft and Sandbox Game maker. Following that announcement around 113 creations were submitted. From the 113 creations, the top 5 were to be recognised and receive prizes accordingly with the winning team receiving the prize money of $35,000.
