Tokens.com Corp a publicly-traded company that invests in Web3 crypto assets and businesses linked to the Metaverse and NFTs, is pleased to share that its subsidiary, Metaverse Group, has signed a lease agreement with Canada SailGP Team for its Metaverse headquarters. Tokens.com portfolio company, Metaverse Architects, has provided the design and architecture services for the installation, which is now live in Decentraland.

Canada SailGP Team is the newest team in the ultra-competitive SailGP circuit - the world’s most exciting race on-water with national teams battling in short, intense races at iconic stadium-style venues across the globe, building to the grand final – and a top prize of US$1 million. The high-tech, high-speed racing features sailing’s best athletes competing in identical hydro foiling F50 catamarans, flying at speeds approaching 100 km/h.

“I am very excited for this collaboration,” said Fred Pye, owner of Canada SailGP Team. “SailGP is at the cutting edge of its domain in a similar way to how Tokens.com and Metaverse Group each are dedicated to pushing what’s possible in their own realms. Our collaboration is aimed at helping form the new standards of how physical world firms engage in this new digital frontier and I look forward to what we will do next.”

The headquarters consists of two structures, which include the Canada SailGP Team head office. The team has commissioned Metaverse Architects to develop a display of live streams of Canada SailGP Team’s leading edge technology and create the Canada SailGP Team NFT collection. The headquarters is situated on the equivalent of 60,000 square feet of flat land. Visitors will be able to explore structures, get information on future races and spend time in dedicated meeting rooms that will showcase the Canadian team racing.

“Canada SailGP Team’s Metaverse presence bridges the gap between the physical and virtual world,” commented Andrew Kiguel, Tokens.com CEO and Executive Chairman of Metaverse Group. “We are proud to have them as a tenant and provide them with design development on our property. Metaverse Group is a one-stop shop for brands seeking to enter this new realm. We are excited to launch Canada SailGP Team’s presence in the Metaverse and showcase the team to a new audience. We look forward to cheering on the Canada SailGP Team in their races in the future.”
