What is The Sandbox (SAND)?

The Sandbox is a community-driven platform where creators can trade their digital assets and gaming experiences on the Ethereum blockchain through their SAND token. Users can create digital assets and upload them to the marketplace where they can be integrated into games with Game Maker.

When a user owns a piece of virtual piece of land (a LAND is a digital piece of real estate in The Sandbox), they can populate it with digital assets and games.

How does it work?

The platform consists of three products that combined provide a complete experience for the production of User Generated Content (UGC). Due to NFT standards, the platform allows users to have secure copyright ownership of UGC.

# VoxEdit. VoxEdit is a software tool that allows you to build your own voxel models and animate them, such as; avatars, animals and tools. Voxels are the equivalent of 3D pixels, similar to building blocks.
# Marketplace. Through the Sandbox marketplace, users can easily upload, publish and sell/trade their digital assets made in VoxEdit.
# Game Maker. Through the Sandbox Game Maker users can build 3D games, with the support of visual tools, no coding knowledge is required.

Use Cases

# Gameplay: through gameplay, users can collect SAND and spend it, for example, on customizing their avatar or purchase equipment.
# Community: by holding SAND users can participate in voting on the Sandbox platform.
# Stake: through staking users can earn rewards such as GEMs and other Digital Assets.

Can I earn money with SAND?

Yes, you can earn money by selling & buying the SAND coin. Sell for a higher price than what you've bought them initially for. The SAND token value has increased a lot, but also had some significant losses. On August 14th, 2020, the Sandbox rate peaked at €0,072667 per SAND. Be aware that SAND has proven to be volatile, so losses can follow profits. Always trade responsibly.
