It's fun, exciting and very intuitive
Allows you to interact with other players as well as create your own world with a prebuilder that anyone can use
It has a large number of sponsorships and collaborations, so its security increases in terms of investment
In addition to the fact that users resell their properties at too high prices, the platform itself does not offer new lands at much more affordable prices
Its voxel appearance may not excite many gamers or investors
The official website is very confusing and lacks an intuitive order

Sandbox is available on iOS and Android mobiles since 2012. It was listed in the app store as the best of 2012 in the Hidden Gem segment. In 2018, the game was acquired by Animoca Brands. They developed The Sandbox with Voxel-style graphics similar to Minecraft or Roblox. With the blokchain protocol users can build their own virtual worlds and internal economies, fully evolving.
In 2023, The Sandbox will be completely decentralized and owned solely and exclusively by the players. The protocol will be managed by introducing DAO into The Sandbox.
It will allow holders of the $SAND / SAND token to vote on any major updates to The Sandbox.
The Game Maker is currently ideal for making role-playing games (RPGs), open world and adventure games. But other game types are, of course, possible. The Game Maker software is also regularly being updated with new features, providing more and more gaming opportunities.
$SAND is an ERC-20 token built on the Ethereum blockchain. It is the main utility token and the currency of The Sandbox's ecosystem. It is also a governance token.
As such, $SAND will be required for the buying and selling of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), such as LAND and ASSETs, from The Sandbox's marketplace.
You will also need to hold $SAND to participate in the governance of the metaverse.
Medium of exchange
$SAND is the medium of exchange in The Sandbox's ecosystem. It will be necessary for making purchases from The Sandbox's marketplace. It will be required to purchase:
GEMs and CATALYSTs
$SAND holders will be able to participate in the governance of The Sandbox's platform.
Selling your ASSETs
Voxel artists will need $SAND in order to upload their voxel creations to The Sandbox's marketplace to sell in order to monetise them.
$SAND is also used for staking onto LAND. In return, stakers will earn rewards, such as highly coveted GEMs.
Playing (some) games
Some games on The Sandbox's platform will be free to play (F2P). But not all of them. The game designer may choose at their own discretion to charge players a small amount of $SAND in order to play their games.
Players can potentially earn some $SAND by playing games. Simple as that.
Hiring designers and artists
You will be able to use $SAND to hire game designers and artists to collaborate on projects with you or commission them to design ASSETs for your project.
Some game designers may choose to give $SAND away as a reward in contests hosted on their LAND.
Foundation Fund & Staking Pool
From all $SAND transactions, a 5% transaction fee is applied. 50% of this fee is allocated to the Foundation Fund and the other 50% is allocated to the Staking Pool.
The Foundation Fund supports the ecosystem and allows us to offer grants to incentivise artists and designers to produce high quality games and ASSETs. The Staking Pool contains the rewards for token holders who choose to stake.
The number of companies within The Sandbox metaverse is very large. Some of these companies are :
RollerCoaster Tycoon World
Warner Music Group
