Skate Park in the Metaverse
As part of this partnership, Tony Hawk Inc. and The Sandbox will work together on Tony Hawk's 6×6 LAND to build the largest virtual skate park ever created. In addition, Autograph will create Tony Hawk avatar NFTs based on Tony Hawk and his most iconic skateboards, gear and apparel, including the legendary skateboard that helped Tony Hawk land the 1999 at the 900 X Games. The Sandbox will make these NFTs interoperable in their open metaverse, transforming Autograph's full-fidelity avatars into 3D voxel versions that have in-game experience capabilities, providing additional utility and value to their owners.
Tony Hawk is a legendary skateboarder, entrepreneur and founder of The Skatepark Project. He became a professional skateboarder at 14 and was considered the best competitive skateboarder in the world at 16. He was world champion for twelve years in a row, continues to perform at international demos and exhibitions and remains the world's most famous extreme athlete. For him, skateboarding is a sport, an art form and a way of life. Among countless other accomplishments, he was the first skateboarder to land a 900 - one of skateboarding's most technical tricks. Hawk was inducted into the Skateboarding Hall of Fame as a charter member.

This has made him a skateboarding legend and a successful entrepreneur,” comments Sebastien Borget, COO and co-founder of The Sandbox. "We share his passion for innovation, creativity and the drive to constantly create something new: this is the energy that drives our entertainment metaverse. What better way to anchor skateboard culture in The Sandbox than to follow the lead of the greatest skateboarder of all time, whose legacy stretches from the sport's and lifestyle's early days to the present and beyond.”
"At Autograph, we strive to create otherwise impossible experiences for fan communities, and this is a step toward our goal of connecting them to Tony Hawk and each other in unique ways and at scale," said Dillon Rosenblatt, co-founder and CEO of Autograph.
