The Sandbox team is building a unique virtual world where players can build, own, and monetize their gaming experiences using SAND, the main utility token of the platform.
SAND holders will be also able to participate in governance of the platform via a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO), where they can exercise voting rights on key decisions of The Sandbox ecosystem. As a player, you can create digital assets (Non-Fungible Tokens, aka NFTs), upload them to the
marketplace, and drag-and-drop them to create game experiences with The Sandbox Game Maker.
The Sandbox has secured over 50 partnerships including Atari, Crypto Kitties, and Shaun the Sheep to build a fun, creative “play-to-earn” Gaming platform, owned and made by players. The Sandbox aims to bring blockchain into mainstream gaming, attracting both crypto and non-crypto game enthusiasts by offering the advantages of true-ownership, digital scarcity, monetization capabilities, and interoperability.
The Sandbox has SAND as their main token of choice for the game.
During the period May 2019 to November 2019, the Company completed a successful private placement round with 13 Investors for an aggregate amount of USD 3,410,000. The private placement round was done through equity and token sale agreements.
The token distribution and the SAND acquired by each investor during the private place took place in 2019 and resulted in the total sale of 515,277,777 SAND which is equivalent to 17.18% of the token allocation through token sale.
SAND allocated to investors through the Private Sale, Founders, Tem and Advisors are 100% locked with 5 years vesting and 12-month cliff.
TSB has also generated its first LAND presales successfully during December 2019 and July 2020. All LAND assigned for sale have been sold for over 6,000 ETH.
