SANDBOX GAME is an upcoming sandbox video game, currently in development by SANDBOX. It is a massive open online real-time strategy game being built on the Ethereum blockchain.
SANDBOX is a decentralized content creation and distribution platform. Think of it as the opposite of platforms like YouTube or SoundCloud, which are centrally controlled and owned by a few large companies.
All content on SANDBOx will be democratically owned and distributed. Any creator can become an uploader on the platform. Users can directly reward and support their favorite creators in SANDBOX. The platform will offer a wide variety of decentralized marketplaces and gamified social interactions to allow for endless new forms of entertainment and content. Any gamer can become a broadcaster on the platform and earn money for their content.
These Broadcasters can compete against each other or form pacts to create more engaging content.
In The Sandbox, you will be able to create your very own game or experience. You will have full control over how your game plays out. Players can join your sandbox by purchasing SAND tokens from one of several exchanges such as Bittrex, Gatecoin, HitBTC, or Liqui.com.
You can also earn SAND tokens through various activities in the sandbox including
• Participation in tournaments and challenges with other sandbox owners. • Voting on which games to feature in the Sandbox Store.
• Creating your own game or experience and releasing it for players to buy.
The more players that interact with your experience, the more SAND you will earn. SAND is the in-game currency that allows you to purchase virtual items and in-game features. SAND can be either purchased or earned through gameplay.
The Sandbox is funded by both a crowd sale and an ongoing bounty program. Owners who contribute to the ongoing maintenance and development of the platform are rewarded with SAND. Owners who create games, create virtual items for games, or participate in tournaments are rewarded with SAND.
Owners who go by the name “Game Masters” are also rewarded with SAND. Each type of contribution is different, visit the official blog for more details.
SAND can be staked and subsequently withdrawn if the user has met certain milestones. The staking temperature is measured in ” degrees “. 0 degrees is the default temperature at which the Sandbox is frozen. Users who contribute to the ongoing maintenance and development of the platform can stake their tokens at a lower temperature, allowing them to withdraw SAND at a faster rate, up to a maximum of 100 degrees.
Users who create games, create items for games, or participate in tournaments can stake their tokens at a higher temperature, allowing them to withdraw SAND at a slower rate, up to a maximum of 200 degrees.
Token holders who contribute to the ongoing maintenance and development of the platform can stake their tokens to perform upgrades and other system operations. The staking process is transparent and token holders can see how much SAND is currently frozen, as well as how much is being audited and how much is available for withdrawal. Staking will be available for all SAND tokens at a rate of one percent per week.
Token holders who contribute more can stake their tokens for a higher percentage. Users who hold tokens for over six months can stake their tokens at a five percent rate, setting them apart from other “top-rated” stakers.
The more active your token is, the higher the SAND intelligence rating you will receive. Connecting and engaging with other sandbox owners increases your SAND Intelligence. A high SAND Intelligence is important for access to new features and systems in the game.
Your rating affects your sandbox storage capacity, sandbox transaction fees, and how many games you can host at a time. SAND STORAGE The amount of SAND you hold determines the number of games you can host in your sandbox at a given time. Each game you host costs a set amount of SAND. The higher your storage capacity, the more games you can host, but the more expensive it is to do so.
The amount of SAND you transact in the sandbox determines how many games you can host at a given time. Each game you host will increase that amount. Fees are charged depending on the amount of SAND being transacted. A game you host in your sandbox increases the amount of SAND you transact in the sandbox. Fees are charged depending on the amount of SAND being transacted.
LAND is the equivalent of physical property in the real world. It is an asset that can be bought, sold, or held as a tradable item on the marketplace.
Rewards granted to contributors can be redeemed directly for a certain amount of LAND, which then becomes tradable on the marketplace. LAND is created as needed by the platform through merging two or more smaller plots. All users can contribute to the ongoing maintenance and development of the platform.
In exchange for this contribution, they are granted access to a special token mechanic that can be used to vote on platform decisions. Each vote is worth a certain amount of platform tokens. The more tokens a user has, the more weight their vote carries. These tokens can be used to vote on decisions that will directly affect the platform, such as which new features get developed, or which economic policies should guide the direction of the platform.
The total supply of platform tokens is limited to ensure their value. As such, users can also trade their token for a certain amount of real-world money at any time. This feature can be used by users to gain a financial benefit from the platform.
Finally, the platform will offer a wide variety of automated gambling and gambling-related contracts to allow for endless new forms of gambling.
The official release of SANDOBOX will be in Q1 of 2021.
