Recently, the game The Sandbox is on the rise, which is a game similar to Minecraft where players can earn crypto money in it. So what is The Sandbox?
The Sandbox is a game that provides a Metaverse experience in it, where players can gather in a virtual world, and besides playing, they can also create assets to sell using cryptocurrency.
The game itself is made on the Ethereum blockchain, one of the most popular cryptocurrencies today. In this game, the ‘currency’ used is $SAND, which is an ERC-20 utility token that can be used for various in-game transactions.
Digital assets created by players include various things related to adventures or stories, be it characters, in-game items, equipment, or digital decoration items, as quoted from IGN.
The game itself can be said to be similar to Minecraft, where players can create whatever they want. The goods they make can then be sold using the $SAND currency, and these assets can then be freely sold in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFT).
There are three main products that form the ecosystem of The Sandbox, namely:
- VoxEdit, where users can create 3D 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 3D games for free.
Even though it involves making various digital items, players don’t need to have deep knowledge about coding, because the software provided by The Sandbox is fairly user-friendly.
Recently, Adidas Originals has also marketed its products in the form of NFT and can be used exclusively in this game. Not only that, Adidas also bought a virtual plot of land, which they will fill with exclusive content and experiences for its users.
