McNuggets Enter Metaverse and OpenSea’s New Deal

The metaverse has become the next big thing where every brand eager to explore new audiences and ways to keep them engaged wants to set foot in. The popularity it has gained over time is immense.

In this context, the latest cryptocurrency news on the collaboration of OpenSea, a marketplace for Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), and the giant fast-food chain, Mcdonald’s has led to a stir in the cryptocurrency community. The announcement of the partnership with The Sandbox is primarily to land the McNuggets in the metaverse.

The virtual realm of the metaverse, where users can socialize, interact and create in an online space is an innovative merge of blockchain technology and NFTs. Among the companies harnessing its power, OpenSea remains at the centre of popularizing digital collectibles to the masses.

OpenSea’s New Deals

OpenSea, one of the world’s leading platforms for Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) has recently announced the launch of a new feature called the “Deals”. The “Deals” enables collectors to trade NFTs directly with one another and also include WETH (Wrapped Ethereum) to make the add-on more lucrative. With the advent of every new feature in the space of digital collectibles, transparency, and convenience are enhanced. 

The primary reason behind the launch of Deals is to reduce the risk imposed by scammy messages. It shields the collectors from the potential fraudulent schemes which are seen to arise on having direct access to private messages. The new feature promises enhanced security to its community members.

The perks of this do not end here!  The feature also charges minimal fees. There is no fee involved in the peer-to-peer swap but the standard gas fee to execute the swap if the involved party accepts the offer. 

OpenSea rightly identifies the need of the hour and has swiftly incorporated it through “Deals”. The security and the seamless user experience it promises are of alluring nature, enabling users to feel more confident and tempted to be a part of the trading space.

The Launch of “McNugget Land”

Another groundbreaking development is the collaboration of the fast-food chain Mcdonald’s and The Sandbox. McDonald’s has successfully entered into the world of metaverse by announcing the launch of the “McNugget land” in the Sandbox, a metaverse platform celebrating the 40th anniversary of its Chicken Nuggets.

In the words of SandBox CEO, Sebastian Borget, the metaverse platform has touched new heights of mass adoption with the collaboration between them and McDonald.

On entering the McNugget land, the users are greeted by Coach McNugget and Assistant Coach McNugget. These are nothing but pixelated McNugget characters guiding the user to the next step of the game. The game starts by searching for four McDonald’s signs.

As per a recent press release, the players are awarded enticing rewards of SAND and mystery boxes as the game unfolds. The initiative is led by the Hong Kong arm of Mcdonald’s with the sole purpose to deliver innovative and happy experiences to its growing community.

The launch of OpenSea’s new feature, Deals, and Mcdonald’s journey into the Metaverse with the Sandbox comes as top news in the cryptocurrency world.  Alongside providing several new opportunities to its users, it continues to tackle the problem of scalability, environmental concerns, and enhancing the user- experience keeping their security intact. 

These setbacks are seen to be worked upon as the technology evolves, soaring metaverse to the heights of growth and adoption.
