Along with the rise of the term metaverse, recently, a game called The Sandbox which is reported to be very similar to the game Minecraft is on the rise. Even more amazing, reportedly, players of this game can reap crypto assets in it, you know!
The Sandbox is a decentralized virtual world game that runs on the Ethereum blockchain which allows its users to interact in the virtual world using non-fungible tokens or NFTs.
Founded in the year two thousand and eleven by Pixowl, sandbox can be categorized as one of the most popular decentralized applications on the Ethereum blockchain.
On this platform, each player can create any game and experience they want and can be accessed by other players. For example, players can create NFTs, display their NFTs on their lands, explore different lands with their avatars, and interact with other players and brands.
In the game, players can collect SAND tokens, an ERC-twenty utility token that is used for all transactions in the game.
The three main products that make up the ecosystem are:
- VoxEdit, where users can create Three-D objects in The Sandbox metaverse
- Sandbox Marketplace, which is a ‘marketplace’ for players to peddle and buy products.
- Sandbox Game Maker, where players can create their own Three-D games for free.
Now, they’ve also partnered with more than one hundred and sixty-five top brands, including Snoop Dogg, The Walking Dead, The Smurfs, Care Bears, and Atari, to create voxel versions of their worlds and characters in The Sandbox!
Until this video was made, there have been around nine hundred and twenty million SANDs circulating in the world and it is predicted that it will reach around three billion SANDs.
