E&S Token Review: The Sandbox (SAND)


Hello Publish0x community and welcome back in this new article of my “Easy & Short Cryptocurrencies Made Accessible” area.

With this article we are going to introduce the 31st cryptocurrency of this section with the 68th “E&S” article.

Today we will talk about The Sandbox (SAND)!

In the last review, I talked about another crypto of the metaverse world. I’m talking about Decentraland (MANA). If you missed my last review, you can recover it here: https://www.publish0x.com/easyshort-cryptocurrencies-made-accessible/e-and-s-mana-the-first-ever-virtual-world-owned-by-its-users-xrnqzdv

Recently, the concept of Metaverse has begun to make its way in a rather insistent way, a term coined by Neal Stephenson in Snow Crash, a science fiction book with cyberpunk tones released in the early '90s, in which he imagines a sort of virtual reality shared via the internet, where you are represented through your avatar made in 3D.

Over the years, even the world of video games has been touched by the concept of Metaverse: just think of MMORPG, as well as particularly ambitious experiments such as Second Life or Active Worlds, able to give life to a sort of parallel universe (with all the limitations of the case), not to mention the ambitious but decidedly unfortunate PlayStation Home, a virtual community published by Sony Computer Entertainment for PlayStation 3 on the PlayStation Network back in 2008, a historical period in which the sharing, so to speak, social had not yet exploded for real.

With The Sandbox it seems that the universe of video games wants to get back into the Metaverse, offering an experience as immature as unique.

Sandbox

The Sandbox is a virtual world where players can build, own and monetize their gaming experiences on the Ethereum blockchain using the platform’s utility token, SAND.

The vision is to provide an immersive virtual world in which players will collaborate to create virtual worlds and games without the need for a central authority. Their goal is to disrupt incumbent game makers like Minecraft and Roblox by giving creators true ownership of their creations as non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and rewarding their participation with our utility token (SAND). With The Sandbox, they aim to overcome these limitations while accelerating blockchain adoption to grow the blockchain gaming market.

The Team

The Sandbox team is very huge actually. They have assembled the right senior team to execute their vision: 42 resources located in our 3 offices with 28 full time employees in Argentina, 11 in France, 2 in Korean and 1 in Japan.

Sandbox

The core team is composed by:

  • Arthur Madrid: CEO and Director.
  • Sebastien Borget: COO and Director.
  • Marcelo Santuario: CFO.
  • Lucas Shrewsburry: CTO.
  • Pablo Iglesias: Inventor of The Sandbox.

The Sandbox Ecosystem

The Sandbox gaming ecosystem consists of three integrated products that together provide a

comprehensive experience for user generated content (UGC) content production.

  • VOXEDIT: This simple to use yet powerful free 3D voxel modelling package allows users to create and animate 3D objects such as people, animals, foliage, and tools, and export them into The Sandbox marketplace to become game assets.
  • MARKETPLACE: The Sandbox’s web-based marketplace allows users to upload, publish, and sell their creations (ASSETS) made in VoxEdit, as Tokens (Both ERC-721 and ERC-1155 tokens).
  • 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 and use their assets within a piece of land (an ERC-721 token) that they can own in the virtual world.

Sandbox

As for the technical issue, The Sandbox does not seek who knows what stylistic component and particularly realistic visual: the look based on the Voxel (Minecraft, to understand us) is within the reach of all, although both the avatar that the various buildings within the Metaverse appear significantly more accurate and "realistic".

After a little introduction about what The Sandbox is, some info about the team and the ecosystem, I invite you to follow me so you don't miss the second part of the article that will be released next Sunday.

We'll go more specifically into new features of this project!

Are you an investor of The Sandbox? Do you know some others interesting new metaverse?
