Here’s your host Crypto Travels Michael.

Did you know that the price of the soul token from Solana was $1.86 per token one year ago? Today? It’s about $217 Each. Pretty phenomenal, the crypto industry. Today’s another one in the crypto gaming series that I’m doing and it’s all about what is Sandbox? So there’s been a lot of buzz and hype right lately about Sandbox, and some people are wondering more details and information about it. So without further ado, let’s jump into it. Sandbox is a virtual world where players can Build, own and monetize their gaming experiences in the Ethereum blockchain, using SAND the platform’s utility token. The team’s vision is to offer a deeply immersive Metaverse, in which players will create virtual worlds and games and collaborate without any central authority. They are aiming to disrupt the existing game makers like Minecraft and Roblox and some others by providing creators true ownership of their creations in the form of NFTs are non fungible tokens and rewarding their participation with the utility token conveniently named SAND that’s S-A-N-D, is the ticker symbol. In the current game market, the centralized ownership and control of user generated content limits creator rights and ownership. central control over the trading of virtual goods created by players restrict them from generating fair value for their creations.

Compounding this it can be difficult to prove creative ownership of works, especially as content is copied, altered and built upon. With the Sandbox, the team aims to overcome these limitations while accelerating blockchain adoption to grow the blockchain gaming market. They will do this by building a gaming platform where creators are able to craft play, share, collect and trade without central control, and they’re enjoying secure copyright ownership with the ability to earn cryptocurrency in the form of the SAND token. Let’s break down some of the benefits and features. One of them is called VoxEdit. And this simple to use yet powerful free 3d. Vox modeling package or voxel, allows users to create and animate 3d objects such as people, animals, foilage, and tools and export them into the Sandbox marketplace to become game assets. So let’s unpack what the marketplace is. The Sandbox web based marketplace allows users to upload, publish and sell their creations (their assets) made in the Vox edit as tokens, both ERC 721 and ERC 1155 tokens.

So let’s break down the game maker. Anyone who owns assets, either by making them in VoxEdit or purchasing them can utilize them with the third and most important ecosystem product, the game maker and the game itself. This product when launched in Game Maker mode, enables users to place in us their assets within a piece of land and ERC 721 token that they can own in the virtual world. Users can decorate their land with assets and more importantly implement interesting gameplay mechanics by assigning predefined behaviors to the assets through visual scripting nodes, turning a land from a decoration experience into a potential full game experience. So let’s unpack the NFT integration. The Sandbox virtual world uses blockchain technology and NFTs to empower the players and creators. NFTs are an emerging segment in the global game market virtual tokens for digital scarcity, security and authenticity, each NFT is distinct or unique in that it is indivisible. And it is not interchangeable from one to another, if you will. Through the use of NFTs the Sandbox users will be able to benefit from true digital ownership, from security, from trading, from cross application, interoperability, and many more benefits.

So who are the founders of Sandbox? Well, it’s three people. One of them is named Arthur Madrid, Sébastien Borget, and Marcelo Santurio. Let’s break down the SAND token for a moment. SAND is an essential part of the Sandbox platform. And the Sandbox is working on establishing key mechanics that make its intrinsically tied in the Sandbox platform and its value. SAND is an ERC 20 utility token built on the Ethereum blockchain that serves as the basis for transactions within the Sandbox. It has the following uses: access the Sandbox platform player spend SAND in order to play games, buy equipment, or customize their avatar character, and can potentially collect SAND through gameplay. Creators can spend SAND to acquire assets, lands, and through staking. Land sells drive demand for SAND to purchase lands. Artists spend SAND to upload assets to the marketplace, and buy gems for defining rarity and scarcity.

SAND is a governance token that allows holders to participate in governance decisions on the platform using a DAO structure, they can exercise voting rights on key elements, such as a foundation grant, attributions to content, and game creators, SAND owners can vote themselves or delegate voting rights to other players of their choice. There’s also staking; SAND allows for staking which allows for passive revenue on lands, you get more SAND by staking it. This is also the only way to get valuable gems and catalysts needed for asset creation. So I hope this has provided more value for you in an overview for another one in the crypto gaming series.

Today’s discussion will be about a crypto game known as The Sandbox and how it incorporates the Metaverse. Let’s dive right in! 

What Is The Sandbox? 

The Sandbox is a virtual world where players can build, own, and monetize their gaming experiences in the Ethereum blockchain.

The Sandbox blockchain gaming infrastructure is made up of three products that work together to deliver a complete user-generated content (UGC) production environment. Users will profit even more from the merged goods because they will be able to ensure copyright ownership for their user-created material using blockchain and smart contracts.

The Marketplace 

Users can upload, publish, and sell their VoxEdit-created NFT creations on the Sandbox’s NFT marketplace. To ensure decentralized storage, creations are first uploaded to an IPFS network, and then recorded onto the blockchain to verify ownership. 

Once this is done, works become ASSETS that can be sold by posting a first sale offer on the marketplace for potential purchasers to purchase.

The Game Maker

The Sandbox Game Maker is a free tool that allows anyone to create fantastic 3D games. Simple visual scripting tools eliminate the need for coding, allowing you to build spectacular 3D games in minutes. Creators like you help to build a large metaverse full of incredible engaging creations and experiences. 

What Is LAND? 

In The Sandbox metaverse, a LAND is a digital chunk of land that users can purchase to create interactive experiences. You can populate a LAND with Games and Assets once you control it. Each LAND is a one-of-a-kind (non-fungible) token that exists on the Ethereum network (ERC-721). 

Within The Sandbox, there will be a maximum of 166,464 LANDS, each housed within a map that makes up The Sandbox metaverse. 

What Is SAND? 

SAND is a key component of The Sandbox platform, which debuted on the Binance trading system in August of 2020. We’re focused on building essential mechanics that will relate SAND to The Sandbox platform and its worth. 

SAND is an Ethereum-based ERC-20 utility token that will soon be used to carry out transactions within The Sandbox. 


VoxEdit is a free 3D voxel modeling and NFT creating application for PC/Mac that lets users design and animate 3D objects like humans, animals, cars, greenery, tools, and stuff. 

Voxels, which are square 3D pixels that look like building blocks, may be edited with VoxEdit to achieve stunning results quickly. Objects can be transferred from VoxEdit into The Sandbox marketplace to become NFT game ASSETS once they’ve been produced. 


Catalysts are ERC-20 tokens used to determine the tier and scarcity of your ASSET in the Marketplace. Catalysts expand your NFTs by adding empty sockets that may be filled with Gems; the higher the Catalyst’s quality, the more sockets are accessible for your ASSET. 

To put it another way, the higher the tier, the less scarce the ASSET is, and the more effective and useful it is.

Through the use of NFTs the Sandbox users will be able to benefit from true digital ownership, from security, from trading, from cross application, interoperability, and many more benefits.

Final Thoughts

They’re developing the first tools, processes, and mechanisms that will use blockchain technology to truly boost content creation and usher in a new era of decentralized content creation, consumption, and monetization.

The Sandbox will be remembered as a groundbreaking project that relinquishes power and authority from gaming companies to artists, crypto-enthusiasts, and gamers who are directly involved in the game’s success.
