History of The Sandbox

Since its inception in 2012, Sandbox has grown to over 40 million global installations on mobile platforms. With the start of January 2018, The Sandbox project began developing a 3D, multiplayer version running on the Ethereum blockchain to provide players a virtual world where they can use their imagination to own, build and monetize game experiences using the SAND token.

In the past several years, The Sandbox has established a 100% ownership economy for players and creators through NFTs and LANDs. Their team has already introduced many robust creation tools in beta after raising $3.41 million USD from several key investors. With over 60 partnerships, the Sandbox has been able to develop content on the platform with brands such as Smurfs, Shaun the Sheep, dApp game developers like Dapper Labs, Square Enix (creators of Tomb Raider and Final Fantasy), and iconic gaming companies such as ATARI.

Problems the Sandbox (SAND) Solves

As a pioneering technology in the NFT world, The Sandbox offers a lot of aspects that make it unique. A major barrier to gaming - locked funds - is tackled and solved by the platform. Traditionally, when you play centralized games, all assets you earn and investments you make are locked within that game. When you quit playing, you can't access and use those funds again until you rejoin the network.

The Sandbox solves this dilemma by providing players with numerous ways to create value and earn assets, while having the ability to transfer it to other games, or even out of the gaming ecosystem itself. The developers of the Sandbox maximized the technology of NFT to make sure players keep track of their creations.

Remember: NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) are blockchain-based currencies that represent in-game assets. They can be transferred and verified via the blockchain network.

Uses of SAND

An ERC-20 token, SAND is used to buy assets and virtual pieces of real estate represented by ERC-721 non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in the Sandbox ecosystem. SAND tokens can also be used for staking to earn more SAND.
