Last Week’s Recap
Lympo x Vanquish Partnership
One of the most exciting events of last week — our partnership with Vanquish.
We have entered into a partnership with Vanquish and together we’ll work on building stronger connections between athletes and their fans.
Vanquish — a sports and entertainment agency and a business developer is working on connecting top-class athletes with partnership and business opportunities.
This is an exciting partnership because we and Vanquish aim for the same — allowing sports fans from all around the world to connect with their favorite athletes.
With this partnership, we’ll introduce numerous world-famous sports athletes to our platform — starting with 11 brilliant female football stars.

We weren’t the only ones with an exciting week. The Sandbox, one of our dearest partners, entered into multiple new partnerships last week. First of which — Design Egg, bringing the Pat a Pat Como into the Sandbox Universe.
Design Egg is a creative digital content company based in Korea. Together with Design Egg, The Sandbox will be building “Como Tiny World”.
In the virtual space, players will be able to explore magical places such as a toy castle and a pirate ship in the fishbowl, take action, solve puzzles and enjoy the metaverse.
CFDA Enters The Sandbox
The Sandbox has also partnered up with CFDA — The Council of Fashion Designers of America.
The aim of this partnership is to establish a web3 blueprint for American fashion in the metaverse with a mission to educate, innovate, and create a community in a digital world.

Animoca Brands Acquires Two Major Video Game Publishers
Animoca Brands, the parent company of Lympo and The Sandbox, has announced the acquisition of two major video game publishing companies — Eden Games and Darewise Entertainment.
Eden Games is a publisher of popular racing games including the Gear.Club and Test Drive series. The company has strong experience in developing award-winning racing games across the mobile, console, and PC platforms and over 13 million game boxes sold and over 60 million app downloads worldwide.
