The Sandbox has decided to add another two weeks to the weekly Summer Jam land sale events. During these weekly sales they will sell 1,508 regular land parcels, 569 premium ones and 18 estates, starting on August 5th. The two sales moments basically split the number of lands.
The next two weeks The Sandbox will organize a weekly land sale. Next week the development team will sell 752 land parcels and an additional 267 premium lands. They premium spots are around six partners, including NFT collectible project Cyberkongz, social gaming platform Gamee, the Meebits DAO and digital fashion house The Fabricant.
On August 12th the remaining land will go for sale. This time The Sandbox is partnering with NFT Swapper, NFT project Wicked Craniums and the old school Moon Cats.
The Sandbox has been organizing a series of land sales in the past weeks, giving the virtual gaming world lots of attention in the NFT industry. More interesting are the partnerships they established. For example, The Walking Dead will come to the Sandbox. In addition to team will embrace Polygon blockchain for its NFTs, improving the user experience.
What is The Sandbox?
The Sandbox is one of the blockchain-powered virtual worlds currently in development. The virtual world of The Sandbox consists out of lands, and voxels fill up each of those lands. Visually it will remind many gamers of Minecraft, as both games have this Lego-inspired look to them. However, players are able to buy virtual land and implement any form of monetization. These virtual lands can become mini-games, adventures, virtual shops, extensions of actual webshops, a space for social gatherings, and so on.
The Sandbox is providing free tools for developers, gamers and content creators. Creators can use VoxEdit to make objects. In addition the Game Maker allows users to create interactivity on their virtual land. The Sandbox will also create a meta gaming experience. Players can for example do daily quests or weekly quests for their guild. This will earn players SAND, which they can sell or use to buy in-game items or virtual land.
