Manchester-based startup MoveStreets, a property portal founded by UK businessman Adam Kamani, has acquired digital land on The Sandbox metaverse.
The Sandbox is a virtual gaming world where players can build, own, and monetise experiences in the metaverse.
MoveStreets believes it will ‘change the way we search and view homes.’
Adam Kamani, CEO and Co-Founder of MoveStreets, said: “We’ve seen how the digital disruption brought by the online property portal has dramatically improved the buying and selling process, allowing prospective buyers to search anywhere in the nation in far greater detail from the comfort of their home.
“We believe the metaverse will be the next step in this user journey and so we made the decision to set up shop in The Sandbox to plan for the future and further our consumer offering.
“While it is still very early days, we’re very excited about the possibilities we’ll be able to provide The Sandbox users.
“This experience is set to be far more immersive compared to anything currently available and should take the concept of virtual viewings to a whole new level.
“Of course, physical viewings will always play a role but there’s no reason that searching for a home online can’t be fun.”
The news comes after the CEO announced a £5m investment into the property portal app in December, 2021.
