Buying SAND and LAND
To start building in “The Sandbox,” you’ll need to own LAND, which is a Non-Fungible Token (NFT). LAND is a parcel of virtual land within “The Sandbox” metaverse.
LAND is a digital collectible that can be purchased with SAND. SAND is an ERC-20 utility token built on the Ethereum blockchain. You can earn SAND by participating in The sandbox ecosystem, winning competitions, or purchasing them on various cryptocurrency exchanges, including Coinbase and Binance. You need SAND to utilize The Sandbox fully.
Once you have SAND tokens, go to “The Sandbox” marketplace, browse available LAND NFTs, place a bid, or buy it outright if it’s listed for sale.
The Virtual World Builder
You will be able to access the virtual world builder, only when you own LAND,
Once you have LAND, launch the builder and choose a parcel of LAND to start building. There are intuitive in-game building tools that will assist you in creating your virtual world.
On The Sandbox Metaverse, you can build games, experiences, and art. You can experiment and get creative with terrain, assets, and scripts.
Monetizing Your Creations
“The Sandbox” is basically a Play-To-earn Game. In other words, the game allows you to sell your creations or charge fees for other users to access it within your virtual worlds.
You can list your creations for sale on the Sandbox marketplace. Other players will be able to buy your creations through SAND tokens.
Your creations are associated with smart contracts, which ensure that you receive royalties whenever your creations are used or resold.
