Build your own empire on the Blockchain network

21 Sep 2020

Sandbox (SAND) is one of the most interesting projects that I have seen so far. The most interesting doesn't mean the most potential. To me, the interesting point of Sandbox lies in the business model of the project. If successful, this could be the next – big – thing of the Blockchain world.

I. What is Sandbox (SAND)

Sandbox is not an ordinary Blockchain project, but a virtual world. In this virtual world, users can create another world of their own, using the LAND Token.

Sounds confusing right? Actually, when writing a review of SAND, I was interested in the boldness of this project. Basically, Sandbox wants to create a platform similar to Minecraft, using the Ethereum Blockchain.

For example, you are a normal person, and want to create a simple, easy-to-play game like racing. However, creating a complete racing game takes a lot of time and effort. From graphic design to programming, it takes a lot of work.

Instead of having to learn and create everything on your own, you can use Sandbox, a game design platform with beautiful 8-bit graphics.

“LAND” is the concept of a piece of digital real estate in The Sandbox supermarket that players can buy to experience on. After the player owns a piece of “LAND”, the player will be able to include it in games and ASSETS. Multiple “LAND” can be combined to form an estate.

A total of 166,464 LANDs will be available, contained within a map that will form a fictional universe called The Sandbox.

GEM and CATALYST define ASSET’S levels, scarcity, and attributes. CATALYST adds empty sockets (network sockets) to the NFT that can be filled with GEM. The higher the quality of CATALYST, the more sockets your ASSET has.

Users can monetize their time on the platform, keeping 95% of SAND as a revenue share, by:


With its inherent products, SAND will allow you to create games easily. Currently, Sandbox has 3 main products:

  1. VoxEdit

VoxEdit is a 3D voxel modeling package that allows users to create and design motion for 3D objects such as people, animals, and objects. This software can generate NFTs that can be sold on e-commerce platforms and the black market.
