Frequently Asked Questions
What are Fantasy Islands?
Fantasy Islands are the first-ever 3D NFTs which include a parcel of metaverse real estate.
Each Fantasy Island is a 3D development with a unique villa that is ready for you to settle into. Fantasy Island owners will own both a parcel of digital real estate in the Sandbox and the development on top of it—bundled for ultimate utility.
Each Fantasy Island villa is a unique 1/1 NFT, with some attributes more rare than others.
Only 100 Fantasy Islands will ever be sold, so owners will become part of an exclusive community–and true landowners in the metaverse. This is utility for the next level of existence.
How do I participate in the sale?
Only 100 Fantasy Island access keys will be sold on Rarible, which entitles the access key holder to a unique 3D development (including the land) in the Sandbox.
What is an Access Key?
The access key is Fantasy Islands’ signature NFT reservation system. One access key is redeemable for one Fantasy Island. They can be purchased on the Fantasy Islands store on Rarible. Each access key is an ERC-1188 which will be held until being burned in exchange for the island and villa bundle.
After the access key sale, Fantasy Islands will be minted. Each access key owner will be randomly assigned a private island, each with its own unique characteristics and scarcity and a land parcel.
How big is each Fantasy Island?
Each Fantasy Island is a single plot of land in The Sandbox, which is 96 meters x 96 meters.
Where are the Fantasy Islands?
Fantasy Islands will be built on parcels of digital real estate in the Sandbox, a virtual world where players can build, own, and monetize their gaming experiences in the Ethereum blockchain. The Sandbox has sold millions of dollars of land parcels and partnered with well-known real-world brands including the Walking Dead, Atari, and the Smurfs and crypto-native brands including CryptoMotors, Whale Shark, Galaxy Digital and others.
Why would somebody buy a Fantasy Island?
As the owner of Fantasy Island, you can entertain your friends or just chill on your own. And when you want to mix with other island owners, you can head over to the members-only beach club to attend community events or host your own.
Fantasy Island owners will not only be a part of a community, but an economy within the Sandbox that allows them to upgrade their island and participate in metaverse game experiences.
Owners will receive an all-access pass to the members-only Fantasy Island beach club (image below).
