November 11, 2020 – The Sandbox, a leading decentralized gaming virtual world, announced today that 1,859 premium LANDS NFTs (non-fungible tokens) adjacent to Binance estates will be available for purchase for the first time, during its highly anticipated LAND presale on November 12th at 1PM GMT.
To celebrate this, The Sandbox will include – in addition to the already announced bundle of Atari and Smurfs NFT digital assets – an exclusive collector NFT in Binance’s neighboring lands. This NFT will be usable within The Sandbox Game Maker to create compelling game experiences ahead of the platform launch.
The Sandbox’s LAND token is a unique piece of digital real estate within the 166,464 total LANDS in The Sandbox’s metaverse. Players can own, create, and publish game experiences on their LAND, with LAND being a primary way to access monetization on the platform.
The game can be accessed through a virtual map where the locations of LANDs and proximity to larger Estates and key positions will play a role in the gameplay, economy, and visibility of games.
In September, Binance announced further collaboration with The Sandbox, the decentralized gaming platform that recently completed a $3 million token raise on Binance Launchpad, by acquiring LANDS NFTs in The Sandbox.
Binance will use its LANDS to engage with its community through social gaming experiences within The Sandbox virtual worlds including organizing future NFT creation contests, supported by VoxEdit and The Sandbox NFT marketplace.
It will also distribute the LANDS to creators who propose the most compelling games made with The Sandbox Game Maker, through a series of upcoming contests to be announced and ahead of the platform public beta launch in December 2020.
As one of the most anticipated blockchain games of 2020, The Sandbox is building a unique virtual world where players can build, own, and monetize their gaming experiences using NFTs and $SAND, the main utility token of the platform. The overall value of The Sandbox’s metaverse has grown from $5,000,000 USD to $25,000,000 USD based on the average selling price on secondary markets, showing the high demand for virtual LANDS in the NFT ecosystem.
The Sandbox’s vision is to offer a deeply immersive metaverse in which virtual worlds and games will be created collaboratively and without a central authority.
The Sandbox has secured over 60 partnerships, including the Smurfs, Care Bears, Atari, CryptoKitties, and Shaun the Sheep, to build a fun, creative “play-to-earn” platform that offers virtual worlds and game experiences owned and created by players.
With play-to-earn, anything a player collects in the game is truly owned by him/herself and can be traded with other players without requiring the developer’s permission (including on other websites), transferred to other players, or even resold through our currency $SAND.
Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) said:
“The potential of blockchain and cryptocurrencies reaches far beyond the financial sector. Given the readiness of the gaming industry in its continuous evolution, especially in new technologies where blockchain is becoming an essential part of game development and set to change the global gaming industry,” said Binance CEO and Founder, CZ (Changpeng Zhao). “We are delighted to welcome The Sandbox to the Binance ecosystem. We hope that together we will be able to spread the power of blockchain as the lead technology in the gaming industry”.
On August 14th, Binance Launchpad announced 15,000 winning tickets, held by 12,225 total winners. That puts the percentage of winning participants at 52.58% of all 23,249 users and the percentage of winning tickets at 9.10% of all 164,893 tickets claimed. $SAND tokens are now listed on Binance.com and available for trading in SAND/BTC, SAND/USDT, SAND/BNB and SAND/BUSD pairs at https://www.binance.com/en/trade/SAND_BTC
