Sandbox is a virtual world that is built on the Ethereum blockchain where players can build their own assets and also monetize their gaming experience.

It basically solves the issues of the games like Minecraft etc where the assets that you create in the game, you don’t actually own them in real. But using the Sandbox platform you can actually own and monetize these assets.


Sandbox


Using Sandbox players can create NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) and import these tokens to the marketplace and integrate them into the Games using Game Maker.

Land in Sandbox

A Land in Sandbox is a digital piece of real estate that players will be able to buy. Once the player has bought the land he/she can build games and assets on that land. Multiple lands can be combined in order to form an Estate.

A total of 166,464 Lands will ever be made available which will be available in a map that will form a Sandbox metaverse.


Products in Sandbox

Sandbox platform currently consists of three working products that together work and provide a comprehensive experience for the production of user-generated content. Sandbox also allows the asset creators to secure copyright ownership of the assets by the implementation of the NFT standards.

1. VoxEdit

It is a 3D voxel modeling package that allows users to create and manipulate 3D assets like animals, people, etc.

2. Marketplace

It allows users to upload, publish and sell the assets that are made using VoxEdit.

3. Game Maker

It allows users to build 3D games for free and the best part is no coding knowledge is required for this task.


How can users Monetize their assets? 

Users can monetize their time on the Sandbox platform by:

1. Selling Assets​

Users can create and sell Assets on the marketplace as Non-fungible tokens

2. Owning a Land

Users can buy Land in one of the Land Sales. These lands can also be rented and in case if you want to increase the Land value you can populate that with valuable content.

3. Building Games on the Game Maker

Build and Monetize games using the Game Maker on the lands owned by the players.
