A community-driven platform where creators can monetize digital assets and gaming experiences
The Sandbox Project aims to bring cryptocurrencies into mainstream gaming. It is a 3D, multiplayer platform that uses Ethereum blockchain technology to offer a virtual world where players can build, own, and monetize their gaming experiences. Players can create digital assets in the form of nonfungible tokens (NFTs), upload them to the marketplace, and integrate these into games using The Sandbox Game Maker. The Sandbox virtual world is made up of LAND, digital pieces of real estate, that players can buy to build experiences on top of. The platform’s utility token is SAND.
The Sandbox is attempting to change the dynamics of the gaming market by rewarding creators for the content they make in virtual worlds. It aims to attract both crypto and non-crypto game enthusiasts by offering the advantages of true ownership, digital scarcity, monetization capabilities, and interoperability across games. The Sandbox has secured over 60 partnerships to develop content on the platform, including brands such as Smurfs and Shaun the Sheep, game studios such as Dapper Labs (CryptoKitties), investors such as Square Enix (Final Fantasy, Tomb Raider), and iconic game companies such as ATARI (Rollercoaster Tycoon, Pong).
