What is Sandbox

The Sandbox is basically a so-called world-building game, which is similar to Minecraft and Roblox . The main focus is on the fact that you acquire land in sandbox, design it creatively and visit the land of other users.

The blockchain-based version of The Sandbox – that is, the sandbox metaverse – also has a virtual economy. You can thus create, trade, and buy items as NFTs through a game store. Within the sandbox metaverse, you can also develop your own games.

The acquisition of objects takes place in Sandbox via the currency “SAND”, which is based on the Ethereum blockchain.

Metaverse category

In the metaverse worlds with a focus on "gaming", you can play games alone or with other users and experience them from a new perspective (usually VR or AR).


In the metaverse worlds with a focus on "creating", you can purchase digital goods such as real estate or works of art or create them yourself. So you can create your very own digital world

Experience & Discover

In the metaverse worlds with a focus on "Experience & Discover", you can usually move through the digital world in the form of an avatar. It is possible to visit attractions and events and to meet and talk to other users.

In the sandbox metaverse, you can buy assets, games, equipment, building materials, and avatar items via the SAND token.

Getting started with the sandbox interface is easily possible via a web browser. For example, if you want to play a game in Sandbox, you will need the “Sandbox Alpha” program, which is available for Windows and macOS.

In order to download Sandbox Alpha , it is best to go to the “Play” tab in Sandbox, then to the “Playmap” and select a game. If you are already logged in, you can try to start the game. You should now be automatically presented with a download link for Sandbox Alpha.
