What is The Sandbox?

Built on the Ethereum blockchain and now migrating to Polygon, The Sandbox is a collection of user-created gaming and social experiences. The Sandbox consists of plots of varying sizes made of voxel-based blocks. Landowners build and customize their own experiences with block editing, hand-crafted assets, and a built-in scripting language. These virtual lands become adventures, virtual shops – whatever their owners imagine and build!

The Sandbox provides free tools for developers and content creators. Using VoxEdit, creators build voxel-based objects for use in-game. Additionally, with the Game Maker, users can create all sorts of interactive experiences. The Sandbox continues to announce new partnerships regularly and hosts regular play-to-earn events!
