The role of Autograph would be to release a series of Hawk’s career-inspired NFTs, iconic skateboards, equipment, and apparel. Among these digital collectibles lies the legendary skateboard of Tony Hawk that he used to land the 900 in 1999 at the X Games.
The Sandbox will turn the high-adherence assets into 3D voxel counterparts by making the Autograph NFTs interoperable in the Sandbox’s open Metaverse. This will contribute significantly to the functionality and utility.
Tony Hawk also took the news to his official Twitter handle and revealed that he is helping in the creation of the biggest skatepark in the Metaverse. Meanwhile, Autograph shared on Twitter that they are excited to join the ride alongside The Sandbox and Tony Hawk.
