The Sandbox and VulcanVerse Create Token Partnership

VulcanForged The Sandbox SAND PYR liquidity NFT farming

Users who provide liquidity for PYR and SAND tokens on the VulcanDex, can farm Charon, a VulcanVerse NFT character for in The Sandbox. In addition, users can earn the Sand Wizard from The Sandbox as a playable companion in the VulcanVerse MMO. The two gaming companies announced their elaborative collaboration on Monday.

Ultimately the campaign means to add liquidity for the SAND-PYR pool on VulcanDex. The more places players can swap SAND, the better it is for The Sandbox. Of course PYR, the native token for the Vulcan ecosystem, benefits from this as well, as it possibly brings a new audience and new eyeballs to the decentralized exchange. VulcanDex aims to only list game tokens.

Be contributing to the PYR-SAND liquidity pool, 200 wallets will receive NFTs. This can either be the earlier mentioned VulcanVerse companion based on the Sand Wizard, or VulcanVerse-inspired characters in The Sandbox. Simply provide liquidity on the VulcanDex for the PYR-SAND pool, then stake your LP tokens in the Farm, and you will become eligible for the NFT rewards.

There are 200 copies of the Sand Wizard, to use inside VulcanVerse. There are also 200 copies of Charon, to use inside The Sandbox. It’s still a bit unclear when the farming event needs to take place, but supposedly it will launch very soon.

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.

The Sandbox has raised $93 million earlier this week through a Series B investment round led by SoftBank Vision Fund 2, which will help the project to stimulate growth. They will use the funding to grow their development team, support content creators and involve more brands and IPs. The Sandbox already partnered with mainstream brands like The Walking Dead, The Smurfs, Care Bears, Atari and Deadmau5.

What is VulcanVerse?

VulcanVerse is a fantasy virtual world where land owners can build and create, while gamers play and interact. Players can use NFTs in multiple games across the VulcanVerse. This Greco-Roman virtual world features building tools, MMO gaming functionalities and interoperable NFTs.

They made the game world really big, 3km x 3km divided into four quadrants. At the center players can find Vulcan City. There are 9918 plots available in the Verse, and there will never be any more plots. The size of each plot is 20m x 20m and the land can be sculpted and built on by the owner with the available in-game building tools.

Landowners can level up there land, and unlock new building pieces. In addition users can terraform their land, allowing users to morph the grass, sand, soil or snow into any sculpture. Obviously caverns are also an option. Depending on the district where the land is, landowners have access to certain items and tools. Land can also be leveled up, the higher the level the more rewards players get. Starting from level 2 landowners earn rewards from staking PYR.
