The Sandbox Game - an overview of the virtual metaverse with opportunities to make money on NFT


Recommended Posts

After the emergence of the DeFi tool and the introduction of smart contracts into the blockchain, developers have a unique opportunity to create metaverses that allow users to monetize their gaming assets. One such project was The Sandbox. In this article, I will tell you in detail what this platform is and what opportunities it offers for making money on NFT.

Brief review of The Sandbox Game

The Sandbox is a virtual metaverse where players can play, create, own and monetize their virtual experience. The platform empowers artists, developers, and gamers to build the platforms they've always dreamed of, providing the means to unleash their creativity. This is exactly what the slogan on the main page of the platform sounds like.

In simpler terms, with the help of Sandbox you can create terrain maps, puzzles, mazes and other virtual worlds, and then share them with other users. At the same time, you are provided with all the necessary tools, which you can use even without programming knowledge.


All created assets within the Sandbox Game metaverse belong directly to users, as they are non-fungible tokens (NFTs).


The monetization of the created objects occurs with the help of the internal SAND token. At the time of writing, it ranks 37th in the Coinmarketcap rating, capitalization is $4.7 billion, trades at ~$5 on all popular cryptocurrency exchanges (Binance, Huobi Global, KuCoin, Gate.io and others).



The Sandbox gaming ecosystem consists of 3 elements:

  1. Voxel Editor is a complete yet easy-to-use 3D modeling package that allows you to create and animate 3D objects for export to the Marketplace to become game assets.
  2. Marketplace is an internal market where you can sell your created creations in Voxel Editor.
  3. Game Maker - Users who own game assets (either personally created or purchased from the Marketplace) can place them on pieces of land in the virtual world. Inside your land, you can implement various game mechanics and use assets in every possible way using scripts.

Land in The Sandbox

The entire Sandbox map consists of 166464 lands and is a 408x408 square. As I said earlier, by owning the land, you are part of the metaverse, you get the opportunity to create and monetize games. In addition, the land can be rented out, as well as place your advertisement on it.


By standard, the land has a certain landscape. However, the owner, at his own request, can edit it or entrust it to the players whom he invites. In the future, players will be able to combine their lands, thereby creating estates.

At the time of this writing, the price of the cheapest land on the OpenSea site is 0.8-1 ETH (3.3 - 4.1 thousand dollars).


Registration on The Sandbox and the process of earning

To become a member of The Sandbox metaverse, you need to go through the registration process. It is absolutely standard and free.

  1. Go to the official sandbox.game website and click the "Sing in" button in the top right corner.


  1. Choose to register with Metamask and just follow the instructions. If you have not yet installed this extension in your browser, I highly recommend doing so.
  2. Enter a valid email address and create a nickname.

From November 29 to December 20, The Sandbox alpha test takes place in the Play to Earn format (play to earn). If you purchase the Alpha Pass (1.8 ETH on OpenSea), you can play and earn rewards. By completing tasks, upon completion of the test, you can earn 1000 SAND and 3 NFTs. Look for all the details in the "Alpha" section.


In addition to buying the Alpha Pass, it can be obtained in two more ways - by winning a lottery among land owners or by participating in daily competitions. All information is presented in the "Home" section.


As the project moves to the next stages and new ways of earning are added, this article will be supplemented.

Conclusion + personal feedback

The Sandbox Game project has a huge potential for growth and development. Firstly, this is due to the fact that it is being developed by experienced specialists who have been involved in games since 2012. The team has already done a lot of work and clearly built a roadmap.

Secondly, The Sandbox looks very similar to Minecraft, which is one of the most popular games in the world. Only here you can not only spend your leisure time excitingly, but also make a fortune. Surely, many players will be interested in this, both old Minecraft fans and completely new users.

Thirdly, metaverses, DeFi, NFT - all this is now only gaining popularity. The Sandbox Game in the overall picture looks extremely fresh, because it makes really unique and interesting offers. So, in my opinion, it is worth taking a closer look at the project and investing your free funds in it.
