  • The experience will host the first green metropolis in The Sandbox, among other immersive experiences such as interactive landmarks, art spaces, and more. 

The international hotel chain aims to raise awareness about sustainability and create a diverse green ecosystem in its new experience. From 10th January until 28th February, The Sandbox users can visit eco-friendly facilities, complete quests, and have the chance to play and earn SAND from the reward pool.

Raising Awareness With Immersive Experiences

Regal Hotels has pioneered strategic partnerships with Hong Kong-based institutions and retailers to build this experience. These include Hang Seng Bank, UOB Hong Kong, City Super Group, and The Mills.

The international hotel chain’s Web3 experience will include numerous unique interactive landmarks, including an Eco-friendly Regal Hotel, UOB Art Space, Hang Seng Bank’s Metaverse Branch, and retailers such as Citysuper, LOG-ON, and The Mills.

The first phase of the experience will host a green hotel, a shopping mall, an art park, and a green open space for performance. Moreover, during the event, players can play exclusive green-themed games, learn more about living a green lifestyle, and earn SAND while at it.

The Sandbox will allocate a 50,000 SAND reward pool and distribute rewards to players who complete every quest in the green metropolis. The experience is open-to-all and free to play. Players can learn about a sustainable lifestyle and earn rewards.

Here’s What MetaGreen is Hosting

Regal Hotels is hosting the first eco-friendly hotel in MetaGreen. The hotel will showcase a 360-degree view of the green metropolis scenery, along with luxury suites, bars, restaurants, wellness zones, and more.

Players can explore the eco-friendly hotel, gain awareness about sustainable living via NPC interactions, and enjoy an immersive hotel experience by playing games.

In collaboration with Hang Seng Bank, Regal Hotels is launching the Hong Kong-based bank’s metaverse brand in MetaGreen. Players can explore the double-story bank branch, interact with NPCs, and learn about ESG investments.

Players can participate in exciting mini-games, learn about green NFTs, and get a chance to earn rewards upon completion.

In partnership with UOB Hong Kong, MetaGreen will host the art academy’s coveted art space in the metropolis. Players can participate in the experience by helping NPCs to find missing artwork and win rewards. Besides the mini-games, the experience will showcase NFT artwork created by winners of the UOB Art in Ink Awards.

To raise awareness of ‘crafting a better lifestyle,’ City Super Group is joining hands with MetaGreen to host interactive games to educate users about a sustainable lifestyle, responsible shopping, and more.

Finally, in partnership with The Mills, MetaGreen will host MetaGreen Mall. The experience will educate players about tech-style innovations that minimize garment waste, reduce production pollution, and more. Players can participate in fun treasure hunts, complete quests, earn rewards, and redeem up to $150 worth of e-coupons.
