One of the key opportunities for businesses looking to create a presence in the Metaverse is the purchasing of land and developing on this within platforms such as The Sandbox. Purchasing land on The Sandbox can be facilitated using the native SAND currency together with ETH to cover gas fees during the process.
Much like Decentraland, land owners can build on top of the land that they own but developers must note the platform enforced restrictions that are in place. The Sandbox also offers additional play-to-earn (P2E) opportunities, where brands can reward those engaging with their 'games' with in-game assets such as NFTs or $SAND.
Nexa is helping multiple brands bring their virtual visions to life by purchasing land and developing on these in public metaverses such as The Sandbox and Decentraland. We also help to secure these purchases using hardware technology that drastically limits the risk of being hacked.
Land Development on the The Sandbox Metaverse
As with other Web3 metaverses, The Sandbox has made it relatively easy for land owners (or land tenants) to be able to build or develop on their real estate with little or no coding experience. However, with more complex builds, brands will likely require technical support and resources to help them achieve their commercial goals on The Sandbox.
According to Gartner, the Metaverse is made up of a number of different use-cases / elements and many of these can be utilised or recreated inside The Sandbox:
When it comes to land, there are two different parcel types are available on The Sandbox map:
- LAND: The basic Sandbox unit on the map. Each LAND comprises 96 x 96 meters in the game world — just big enough to enable all types of blockchain game experiences, but not too large to be unmanageable by a single person.
- ESTATE: An ESTATE is the combination of multiple LANDS. Here is where the potential for teams of creators lies to create larger and more immersive online experiences.
