The Sandbox artwork header

The Sandbox is a virtual world in which players own and customize the 166 thousand different land parcels its made out of. On those land parcels, which are represented as non-fungible tokens on the Ethereum blockchain, the landowners can do whatever they want: build games, virtual museums or other creative creations.

The world of The Sandbox is made out of voxels. From that perspective it’s very similar to Minecraft. However, in The Sandbox everybody can make a game, can design fashionable characters or earn SAND tokens by completing quests. Everybody in The Sandbox contributes to the game’s ecosystem, and therefore everybody earns rewards. That’s a true play-to-earn business model.

Creating in The Sandbox

The Sandbox provides free tools to create assets. VoxEdit is a free creator to make voxel assets, including for example game characters or non-player characters. Creations made in VoxEdit can be sold on an open and player-driven marketplace, and other people can then use those assets to decorate their lands.

Aside from VoxEdit, The Sandbox has free software GameMaker. This software can be used to make games or other interactive installations. To make these, creators can use non-fungible tokens (NFTs) made with VoxEdit. Once the game installation is complete, all used assets are saved into one ERC-1155 non-fungible token. In essence this means that these interactive creations can also be sold as separate games within The Sandbox.
