Tony Hawk has been long known to be into crypto, previously skating at the Bitcoin 2021 pop-up skate park.
Now his team is working with The Sandbox Game to build a large metaverse style skate park.
As of right now, The Sandbox Game has not had any real “skating” ability since it is only in Alpha. This will be the first time a skateboarding feature will be introduced. It could be a combination of hanging out with other fans and skating around.
The key questions will be how varied the skating gameplay will be. If you can only do the same 3-4 tricks over and over, it could get boring fast.
The old school Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series was a big hit due to the amount of tricks and abilities you could use.
It would be interesting to see if skateboards become desirable NFTs. Only time will tell!
