They consider themselves a bridge between reality and virtuality. This company has its origins in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
This space of Kun will be effective on November 6 with the games promised by him, in which he will be the Host and will play with his fans.

Within the NFT collection there will be 5 different types of avatars, which will represent each of the stages of the Argentinean’s professional career: Football Kuns, E-Kuns, Future Kuns, Robot Kuns and Special Kuns. Each of these avatars has a different level of rarity, with the Football Kun having a higher percentage than the others.
Although the space will be available on November 6, The Sandbox is already offering early access through a whitelist that can be found on Kun Agüero’s official Discord. On behalf of The Sandbox, they announced that those who sign up in that whitelist before the date, will be able to access to a pre-sale of NFTs one day before the public sale. On the other hand, in order to contribute to a fair distribution of avatars, The Sandbox will limit the sale of NFTs to a maximum of 5 NFTs per wallet.
Kun Agüero argues that Web3 and the metaverse make it possible to open up infinite universes to connect with people all over the world. In addition, many virtual communities can be created, in which everyone has the freedom to create their avatars as they wish.
