he Sandbox is a P2E Metaverse game that was originally launched in 2012 as a mobile game on iOS and Android. Six years later in 2018, Sandbox had a master plan to develop a new version of the game, built on the Ethereum blockchain.
How does Sandbox work?
Sandbox has created the perfect ecosystem for gamers. Users can create/craft their own Avatars and items, earn SAND tokens by playing/staking, buy/own Land and trade on the marketplace! All assets within the ecosystem are limited to availability and tradeable.
Also note, that it isn’t necessary to own land if you want to play in the Sandbox game. However, if you are interested there are various forms known as LANDs ESTATEs and Premium LANDs. There are a total of 166,464 LANDs and roughly 1,297 slots of LANDs left for sale.
So far there are over 22,200+ users who own land in the Sandbox Metaverse. There is currently a floor price of 0.99 $ETH or 4K SAND. You can choose to buy land on the Ethereum or Polygon networks. If you fancy buying some land next to Snoop Dogg or Ubisoft, go check it out!
The Sandbox Game has over 39K active daily users, with a total of 4.1 million wallets connected and over 2.5 million hours played, must be addictive…
If you’re wondering how to make money within the Sandbox, you will have to create and/or trade assets. Don’t be put off because it can be very profitable. If you put in the time, you will eventually earn a lot of SAND which can be turned into FIAT ($).
Decentraland vs Sandbox
In comparison, competitor Decentraland only has around 8.5K maximum, active daily users. Sandbox also has a higher supply of land, with over 150K ploys that users can own and even group into estates.
Both are great in their own ways, but the Sandbox seems to be the clear winner in terms of statistics.
Over the few years that they have dominated the P2E and Metaverse industry, The Sandbox has managed to land historical partnerships with Snoop Dogg, Adidas, Atari, The Walking Dead, Hell’s Kitchen and many more of which own land in the Sandbox Metaverse.
Get your shovels out! Let's take a deeper look through the sand:
Native Sandbox Marketplace
Explore a wide range of NFT Collections, Equipment, Avatars and all kinds of assets! Everything is paid for using the SAND tokens and the marketplace is home to the Ethereum blockchain, so gas fees can be expensive when the GWEI is high.
This amazing software allows ANYONE to create, rig and animate a custom voxel-based NFT. They can be anything from Avatars, Vehicles, Equipment or whatever your imagination brings forth. Any voxel-based NFTs can be sold and traded on the marketplace!
Ever thought about making your own game? Well, Sandbox’s Game Maker allows anyone to design and develop games for free and without any experience in coding! Once you have a playable game, you can share it with the world!
How to Get Started on Sandbox
To get started on Sandbox, you will need to set up a free avatar to explore and play games. At the moment, Sandbox has just released limited edition Playboy party people avatars, celebrating their 69th anniversary.
Remember that custom avatar skins will cost ETH and are tradeable on Opensea. You can buy amazing skins from collections such as BAYC, Snoop Dogg’s ‘The Doggies’, Steve Aoki, Moonbirds and many others! Avatar skins can vary from $1 and over $100, depending on budget.
The SAND token is the utility token that powers the entire ecosystem and is used to pay for transactions and interactions within games and the marketplace.
It’s great news that SAND is deflationary as it is limited to a Total & Maximum supply of 3 Billion tokens. There will never be more. Web3 gaming is about to take over traditional gaming and Sandbox is the current leader in this space…
How to Buy Sandbox (SAND)
The SAND token is available on the Ethereum, Polygon and Solana networks and on 99.99% of major centralised exchanges.
There are two main ways to buy SAND, but you will always go through a centralised exchange (CEX). Here are the options:
Option 1- Centralised Exchange
We recommend using one of these centralised exchanges when buying or trading the SAND token. Here is a list of CEXs with a few delicious promotions:
- Binance - The most popular CEX in the world
- ByBit - EARN UP TO $30K in DEPOSIT BONUSES
- BitGet - Trade on BitGet and receive 0% Deposit Cashback + $5,000 DEPOSIT BONUSES
- Coinbase - Spend $100 and Get $10 back!
Option 2 - DeFi Wallet & Decentralised Exchange
To get started you will need a DeFi wallet and make sure to secure your seed phrase with a hardware wallet (Trezor):
If you are buying SAND through your DeFi wallet, we recommend using the Polygon network which requires MATIC tokens for gas fees. Alternatively, you can use the Solana network which is also cheap in gas fees (SOL). If you haven’t set up the Ethereum, Polygon or Solana networks, you can follow our YouTube tutorials down below. Here are the essential links:
At the time of writing, the SAND token is sitting at a price of $0.29 with a market cap of $611M, which ranks SAND the 60th largest cryptocurrency. Sandbox has seen an ATH of $8.44 and reached a market cap of $7B!
Considering many large corporations and individuals are partnered with Sandbox and own lots of land in their metaverse, I believe they have a very strong and exciting future ahead. If Minecraft players knew about The Sandbox Game, their life would change…
