The Creation of Sandbox, its Functionality and Usage

The first version of the Sandbox was launched in 2012 and its sequel was launched in 2016. In 2012, Sandbox had Pac-Man, Shrek, Ghostbusters etc. The idea of a new Sandbox on Ethereum blockchain originated in 2017. They started working with the new version in 3D with a multiplayer function and multi platform. It is using the blockchain technology from the ground up with NFTs to enable users to own and monetize game items they create or earn through playing.

The basic concept is buying a LAND which is a digital piece of real estate in the Sandbox metaverse where players can buy to build experience on top. Once LAND is owned, which is limited, one can create games and assets in it. The recent version is still underdeveloped, and so has not been launched publicly. But, most of the tools that make the Sandbox platform where artists are enabled to make their own NFTs and edit it for free are already available in BETA.
