Paris, March 9, 2022 — Dogamí, the Tezos blockchain-powered mass-market play-to-earn (P2E) nonfungible token (NFT) game, has signed a partnership with The Sandbox to bring its dog avatars into the metaverse.
The partnership marks a significant milestone for the Dogamí project and a first for The Sandbox that, until today, only had four-legged avatars as non-playable characters. This is a new step in The Sandbox experience for all pet avatar holders.
NFTs are taking off on the Tezos blockchain, courtesy of Dogamí. After launching its Dogamí Generation Alpha NFTs — limited to 8,000 tokens — the project noted a floor price of nearly 280 Tezos (XTZ) and a total volume of almost 700,000 XTZ. The collection has less than 10% of its assets listed for sale on Objkt, suggesting that early supporters intend to support Dogamí for the long run.
This first partnership between Dogamí and The Sandbox confirms momentum is growing for the pet avatar project on Tezos. Dogamí has acquired a three-by-three Estate S-Land to establish a community hub and introduce the first-ever pet-friendly experience in The Sandbox.
Before the end of the year, Dogamí NFT holders will stroll around with their Dogamí voxel avatars, skate in the Doga House Skatepark and socialize with other Dogamers. Together, they will discover various hidden secrets and easter eggs about the Dogamí project, its vision and history. Additionally, the skatepark will feature the purchase of voxel accessories through the Doga House virtual shop.
Dogamí and The Sandbox will host two separate giveaways to commemorate this crucial milestone.
Dogamí Discord members can win five Sandbox Alpha passes.
The Sandbox community members can win five limited-edition Dogamí voxel avatars.
"We welcome the Dogamí pet-lovers community to The Sandbox. We are pleased to allow Dogamers to play with their virtual dog companions — the Dogamí NFTs. We hope to expand their creative universe with our no-code gamemaker creation tool, inspiring new types of adventures and experiences alongside their virtual companions,” said Sebastien Borget, co-founder and chief operating officer of The Sandbox. “As part of this partnership, the Dogamí team is also unveiling the first application of a cross-chain interoperability bridge between Tezos and Ethereum. We’re really thrilled by the possibilities.”
Dogamí is the first mass-market NFT P2E augmented reality mobile game where players adopt and raise 3D dogs to earn DOGA tokens in the Petaverse.
It was co-founded in mid-2021 by CEO Max Stöckl, chief technology officer Bilal El Alamy, chief operating officer Adrien Magdelaine and chief business officer Kristofer Dayne Penseyres. The project is supported by a European team of more than 30, including art director Gregory Magadoux, who previously worked at Ubisoft.
The company has successfully raised $6 million through world-famous investors such as Ubisoft, Animoca Brands and XAnge Venture. Dogamí’s first NFT drop of 8,000 dog avatars sold out in merely a few hours, propelling them to the number-one rank in volume traded on the major Tezos NFT platform Objkt.
