CJ ENM will leverage The Sandbox blockchain network to bring immersive content experiences to its massive user base in the Metaverse.

On Thursday, July 7, decentralized gaming ecosystem The Sandbox announced its partnership with global entertainment content leader CJ ENM. The goal is to bring diverse content to all the users within the Metaverse.

The Sandbox and CJ ENM

CJ ENM has been looking for ways to expand its content in the virtual world and provide an immersive viewing experience to customers. However, it plans to do this via a fan-participatory service by combining real-life and virtual experiences. Thus, within its television program, it will showcase CJ ENM content user’s activity in the metaverse. Cindy Lee, CEO of The Sandbox Korea said:

“We’re proud to be the partner of South Korea’s leading content company CJ ENM. CJ ENM covers all kinds of genres; dramas, movies, entertainments, musicals, etc. This diverse content will enrich the metaverse with many enjoyable experiences.”

CJ ENM will also be collaborating with The Sandbox to build “K Content Metaverse”. It will do it by using its Intellectual Property (IP) of globally popular television series and movies and bring new types of experiences to users. Sang Yeop Kim, Head of Content R&D Center of CJ ENM said:

“We will carry out various metaverse-related projects starting with our partnership with The Sandbox. CJ ENM will provide a new level of experience where users get to make their own content as the creators.”
