The Sandbox Taps Hex Trust to Enable Secure Custody of Metaverse Assets

Hex Trust, an institutional-grade digital asset custodian licensed across global financial hubs, has partnered with The Sandbox, a decentralised gaming virtual world, to enable fully-licensed and highly-secure custody of assets such as LAND in the metaverse.

Hex Trust has fully integrated LAND into its digital asset custody platform, Hex Safe, which provides digital asset support, including cryptocurrencies, security tokens, and NFTs.

Additionally, The Sandbox has also added Hex Trust as a certified partner and to its directory list for custody services.

The integration enables institutional investors, brands, and corporations to store LAND assets with Hex Trust, instead of having to store these valuable virtual land assets in online hot wallets exposed to security and hacking risks.

Besides providing custody services for LAND, Hex Trust provides the service to buy and sell LAND, as well as financing solutions, including leasing LAND assets and virtual mortgages.

Hex Trust entered The Sandbox’s metaverse in 2022 and purchased an Estate in the ‘Web3 Zone’.
