Idea behind the conception of The Sandbox

The primary motive of this gaming platform is to successfully integrate blockchain technology into mass volume games, thereby creating an innovative “play-to-earn” model.

This enables its users to be both players as well as creators.

Moreover, the native SAND token makes transactions simple on the platform.

According to the CEO of The Sandbox, Arthur Madrid, the new partnership with the metaverse would popularise the gaming project among Meta users, which would increase the number of The Sandbox users manifolds.

Moreover, all the users including the Meta users can access the online world of gameplay with any additional registration.
