The Sandbox

Let's talk about The Sandbox.

Nonfungible tokens (NFT) and blockchain games have quickly become popular trends in the cryptocurrency industry. By presenting cryptocurrency through an innovative, fun, and engaging platform, The Sandbox brings blockchain to the masses. It's an exciting time of growth and innovation in the industry, with the SAND token reaching new all-time highs and The Sandbox games becoming more popular than ever.

What is the Sandbox?

Through the Sandbox, players can design their own worlds in what is a virtual reality game. The Sandbox has been available on iOS and Android mobile devices since 2012 and was also included in Apple. Animoca Brands developed The Sandbox platformer with Voxel-style graphics similar to other popular games like Roblox or Minecraft. However, the blockchain-based protocol allows users to build their virtual worlds and economies, taking The Sandbox to a new level.

Players of The Sandbox now have complete freedom to monetize their digital world through nonfungible tokens (NFT) and blockchain. What allows this funtions to coexist is the Ethereum blockchain, an immutable public ledger that shows accurate records of all transactions. The Sandbox platform has been implemented on Ethereum to have the security and strength of the second-largest blockchain. As a result, the Sandbox creates the opportunity for players to create games collectively and independently, worldwide, without central control. This could be a possible new way to earn passive income with decentralized finance (DeFi). Below we have published a quick tutorial for you to learn how to play the game:
