What is SAND?

Modified on Sun, 19 Feb 2023 at 10:22 PM


SAND is an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain and acts as the medium currency within the Sandbox platform, a platform for the online gaming community that enables the creation of assets, characters, and numerous other features through the utilization of a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO).

Users are able to express their creativity through the development of Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) which can be traded or sold on the platform’s marketplace to receive SAND tokens as returns.

The Sandbox’s DAO allows the ability to govern the ecosystem, as SAND holders are able to propose policy changes to the developers, along with being able to vote on others’ proposals as well.

Sandbox was established under the “play-to-earn” vision, wherein users can create, play, and develop to receive SAND tokens, along with other on-platform currencies like LANDS and ASSETS, which are ERC-721 and ERC-1155 tokens, respectively.

ASSETS can be created and placed on the platform’s Marketplace, a platform maintained by a Smart Contract, which allows users to acquire tokens and profitable gains from their creations.
