What is The Sandbox?

Exploring the Metaverse

The Sandbox Metaverse

The Sandbox is a blockchain-based gaming experience within a virtual world. It was founded by Arthur Madrid and Sebastien Borget. Both co-founders have extensive experience and education within the economic and technical arenas.

Launched in 2011, The Sandbox co-founders have been innovative in creating a play-to-earn gaming model in which gamers can simultaneously create digital assets from scratch as well as buy and sell them. These assets are in the form of games combining the functionality of both decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

The Sandbox has created an organic atmosphere where gamers and creators can thrive while enjoying the best in modern VR technologies. In fact, the official Sandbox whitepaper states that their main mission is to introduce blockchain to the mainstream gaming community in a way that opens more users’ understanding of blockchain technology.

What is SAND?

SAND is the utility token that facilitates transactions within the Sandbox metaverse. Players become contributors of The Sandbox platform’s development by using the SAND token which is, of course, decentralized allowing users to have input regarding the project’s development. Decentralized governance is becoming THE way to operate within gaming, blockchain-based projects, and ultimately the entire metaverse.

Is There A Limited Supply Of SAND Tokens?

Yes! And as anyone knows who has been around crypto any time at all, scarcity is a valuable aspect of any coin.

The maximum supply of coins was set at 3,000,000,000 SAND tokens. At the time of this writing, there are approximately 913,364,619 SAND tokens in active circulation. That is almost a third, and remember, this is before we even hit 2022 at which point metaverse projects will likely explode. When these tokens are all gone, they will only go up in value even more than they will in the short term, which will likely be exponential.

Keep in mind that almost the same number of the SAND tokens (31%) are distributed among the original founders and team members. Another 25% were set aside for Bianance Launchpad and for project advisors. That creates even more scarcity.

Is Sandbox (SAND) listed among the best crypto for 2022? Well, a little research will reveal that most experts within the crypto space place Sandbox as one of their top picks for 2022. This isn’t only among those with a focus on the metaverse or gaming niche, nor those who are focused on NFTs. I’ve been somewhat shocked how many crypto leaders of all faiths are feeling the responsibility to give insight to their followers and readers regarding the emerging metaverse explosion.

More About Sandbox!

Sandbox (SAND) intends to be a trend setter and game changer (no pun intended) within the metaverse gaming space. They are not messing around. There is little chance of anything but further success with this project and team who have committed to the long haul.

The Sandbox is built on top of the Ethereum blockchain,

Layer 2 Ethereum Projects

it is a virtual reality (VR) experience and it is secured by the proof-of-stake consensus method. The SAND token is an ERC-20 token. Owners can stake SAND, earning rewards. As you probably already know, this type of protocol uses much less energy. It actually uses only a fraction of the energy that PoW (proof-of-work) uses which is the method employed by Bitcoin.

Sandbox came out of the gate running and immediately gained the interest of and alignments with companies such as Atari and CryptoKitties. Helix is also now a supporter of Sandbox!

The Sandbox One Pager synopsis is a great place to check out much more about Sandbox and their native token, SAND. It’s in their own words, and I believe you’ll find it very helpful.

Where Can You Buy The Sandbox (SAND)?

According to CoinMarketCap.com, the places you can currently purchase Sandbox (SAND) include Binance, Kucoin, Huobi Global and Gate.io. If there are other platforms where it can be purchased, we are unaware of it at this time. But undoubtedly most of the other major platforms are working with Sandbox right now to secure the SAND token’s place for their clients to buy and trade.

Other Sandbox Facts

Sandbox has recently partnered with BlockchainSpace which is a metaverse platform. BlockchainSpace (GUILD) is another project to keep your eyes on. It’s price is currently a third of its all-time high, which is a great time to buy am aggressive project. Especially knowing that they are METAVERSE! They don’t dabble in it or just use it, but they are a platform for metaverse projects. This year could be huge for them as well.

With Sandbox linking up with BlockchainSpace, they will be adding many more users/players which will also add to their value.

Big Tech vs Sandbox and Other Metaverses

The Sandbox co-founder, Sebastien Borget, was recently an outspoken opponent to big tech players entering the Web 3.0, decentralized zone of the metasphere. Far too long Web 2.0 (where most web activity currently operates and has for decades) has been controlled by the big tech companies.

In my words as I paraphrase, Borget went on to say that big tech has controlled and screwed up things in their own world. And that they don’t need to come into the decentralized world of the metashphere with concepts like Meta that could threaten the decentralization of the entire space. Borget also points out the irrefutable point that decentralization doesn’t even fit within the model of any current big tech company, AT ALL!

Decentralization means that everything within a decentralized platform or sphere is controlled by ALL of the participants ALL of the time. A big tech know-it-all couldn’t censor a particular person with whom they disagree with politically. Nor could they allow a terrorist dictator to spew hate and “misinformation” (man, I’ve grown to HATE that abused term!!!) simultaneously. There is no one to call who is “in charge” who can make that arrogant decision to censor someone while allowing others to knowingly perpetuate reckless falsehoods.

Breaking Down Big Tech Into Bitesized Pieces

There is no ONE person to say anything. Not only that, there isn’t even one huge company that can make a particular decision like that. It’s the combined input of millions of users that evenly and collectively, as an aggregate, decide everything. No government shadow operatives could issue threats to CEO’s to get them to participate in their political agenda. There is no one person to suicide. Who? Which one would they choose? Even if they chose someone, it wouldn’t change anything. Hmmm…?

Seems the controlling media and big tech outfits are getting a bit nervous. Who is it that is afraid of losing the power of controlling the information that people receive? They can’t with the metaverse and Web 3.0.  To do so, they would have to hang 2 billion people from their doorknobs. Dang, that would take a while.

What could be more like a democracy than spreading out all of the input and opinion and decision making with no fear of being singled out by corrupt political entities? Well, until the blockchain, nothing! Clearly, when I refer to democracy, I’m aware that the US is a Constitutional republic, but I use the term democracy as the general loose term regarding the concept that should be adopted by all governments. And despite the name, the Democratic Party is ironically not the proponents of true democracy. I’m not sure any current part really is.

Decentralized Finance and the Blockchain

But how will the current big tech junkies deal with a truly democratic platform where their individual voice as, say, CEO, has no more power than that of their plumber or the person who has been on unemployment for years? They can’t control anyone anymore. They are already feeling the pain of withdrawal and it is seemingly unbearable to them. Their individual voice would be one in 10’s of millions or more on any given issue. No longer would it even be possible to play the fake gurus that pretend to know what is bet for everyone else. The collective will decide.

This isn’t a political rant. I’m of neither party, but these are the sentiments that all of the proponents of decentralization are vocalizing. This is simply an expansion of the thoughts being conveyed by sandbox (SAND) co-founder, Sebastien Borget. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are countless industry leaders within the cryptosphere and metaverse that are of like mind. Let’s move quickly to Web 3.0!!

Time For Dinner

SAND is worthy of your investigation. Some may buy the dips and sell, while others may Hodl, or hold onto the Sandbox tokens long term. Others may just want to invest and go interact within the Sandbox metaverse. But no matter how you slice it, this projcect has all of the promise of a long-term player.

Sandbox is part of the emerging Web 3.0 where everything is decentralized. It just works! And not only will it not go away anytime soon, it’s barely just starting.

Remember, as all of the platforms are decentralized, players within any Web 3.0 metaverse games can create their own games and NFTs and can also buy and sell them. All decisions are made collectively. It’s part of an ecosystem that is at the heart of the metaverse.

By the way, Sandbox has huge players already buying and selling and creating within The Sandbox. Snoop Dogg recently built a mansion within The Sandbox metaverse. And the MetaFlower super mega yacht recently sold for $650,000 there as well.
