What is The Sandbox (SAND)?
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.
# 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?
