The metaverse was the new way of living and doing business, D.OASIS’ co-founders – CEO Sirikiat Bunworaset, Index Creative Village CEO Kreingkrai Kanjanapokin and Dhurakij Pundit University president Darika Lathapipat – told the “Thailand Metaverse Expo 2022” in Bangkok on Saturday. Speaking on the topic "Connecting Thailand with the Sandbox Community", they said that speed of adoption was the key to success in this digital economy era. Those who quickly learned and adapted to new technology would reap the opportunities at the forefront of their industries. The goal of D.OASIS was to establish the country's leading metaverse community, where Thais could learn, explore and experience the metaverse and its potential. The Sandbox metaverse also aims to be Thailand’s access point to the global metaverse community. D.OASIS CEO Sirikiat said the Sandbox allows Thailand, its businesses and people, to access the world while also allowing the world to access Thailand. This new type of interaction would open a fresh virtual landscape of opportunities for Thai businesses and users, he added. Already part of the Sandbox community are leading brands and celebrities including Gucci, Adidas, Snoop Dogg and Paris Hilton. The Sandbox is the third-largest Ethereum blockchain metaverse. Users can create, share, and monetise assets (such as real estate) and gaming experiences. They can own assets, play, build, and own properties on the virtual platform. Sandbox users can also sell their virtual assets for real-world money.
