According to Business Insider, the virtual yacht, which was created in the metaverse The Sandbox, sold for $ 650,000. It became the most expensive item ever sold on the platform.

According to etherscan, Metaflower Super Mega Yacht was bought for 149 ETH (ethers, about $ 650,000). She is described as an “ultra-luxurious mega yacht” with two helipads and a Jacuzzi and other amenities. Called Metaflower, the yacht also has three decks for guests’ entertainment. Who exactly became its owner is not reported.

The digital asset was released by Republic Realm, the developer of The Fantasy Collection, a line of luxurious NFT assets created specifically for The Sandbox platform. The Sandbox is a virtual world where players can create, own and monetize their gaming experience on the Ethereum blockchain. According to the whitepaper, users can also create digital assets like NFTs and upload them to the market. Those who own sand, the main service token of the platform, can participate in the governance of the platform through a Decentralized Autonomous Organization or DAO.

Ever since Mark Zuckerberg changed his social media company name to Meta, events in the metaverse have attracted a lot of media attention. Selling luxury goods in the new 3D iteration of the internet has become popular lately. As Futurism points out, buying this yacht or any other similar asset that is still available for sale as part of The Fantasy Collection is “a great way to burn money.” However, as noted by the media, for the person who bought the yacht, 149 ETH is most likely a small change.
