That’s right; it is happening. The little Belgian blue elves will now feature on The Sandbox through a partnership with Animoca brands.
Lazy Smurf, Smurfette, Grandpa Smurf and all others will be turned into NFTs by The Sandbox.
The Smurfs negotiated a deal with The Sandbox to get “large digital spaces, known as LANDS.” These are 3D interpretations of the Smurfs’ native forest, “complete with Smurfs-themed environment, attractions, games, and buildings with which to interact.”
The blue Belgian elves will share their home with the Care Bears, CryptoKitties, Shaun the Sheep, and all others. You can trade them for money on secondary markets when The Sandbox publishes in December 2020.
On November 12, The Smurfs will inhabit 11.5% of the total map, and 19,200 LANDS for sale.
Véronique Cullifords is the Founder and President of IMPS, the licensor of the Smurfs, and the daughter of Pierre Culliford, creator of The Smurfs.
