The Sandbox awarded for bringing diverse visions to life in the metaverse

The Sandbox has partnered with 700+ partners around the world to build a diverse ecosystem.

An open metaverse that offers both players and creators a decentralised and intuitive platform, The Sandbox enables the development of immersive activities such as virtual worlds and game experiences. It is dedicated to safely storing, trading, and monetising the user’s creations. 

A subsidiary of Animoca Brands, The Sandbox has become known as a leading decentralised world and is responsible for the recent growth in demand for virtual real estate. 

The number of partners joining The Sandbox ecosystem has grown rapidly to over 700, including major brands such as Warner Music Group, Ubisoft, The Rabbids, Cut the Rope, Tony Hawk, Gucci Vault, and other notable brands.

Global brands have increasingly introduced a range of community activities to the metaverse. Meanwhile, creative agencies, studios, and all kinds of businesses have successfully built new experiences to accelerate the decentralisation of Web 3.0.

By means of free-to-use, no-coding creation tools such as “VoxEdit” and “Game Maker,” creators are given the option to create, rig, and animate their own voxel-based NFTs. These creation tools also play a part in helping to develop metaverse experiences and shaping the metaverse landscape.

According to The Sandbox, 3D editing and animating are now much easier for the average user whilst facilitating content optimisation. As a result, multiple brands and users now explore alternative approaches and solutions through its metaverse.

With the launch of Avatar collections, opportunities for freedom of expression and diversity have increased dramatically in The Sandbox. Today, access to more than 70 avatar collections illustrates the true interoperability of NFTs as digital identities. As a result, multiple brands and other users now explore alternative approaches and solutions through the metaverse.

Building on Polygon allows The Sandbox team and its users to reduce their carbon footprint and cut costs for the community by optimising on-chain transactions. Also, by leveraging the capabilities of for easy user on-boarding and sponsored gas fees that simplify interactions, the team continued to push towards greater overall project ecosystem sustainability.

For this, The Sandbox received the Blockchain - Technology award during the recently concluded Hong Kong Business Technology Awards. Now in its fourth year, the awards programme recognises outstanding companies that made exceptional contributions in technological innovation. 

The judging panel took into consideration the different achievements of the company. The Sandbox was recognised for its other achievements, such as housing over 700 individual brands, creators, and studios that joined its ecosystem.
