The Sandbox, a dynamic metaverse platform, has made significant strides during its inaugural Global Creators Day in Hong Kong. By targeting the Asian market, which constitutes 30% of its user base, the platform aims to introduce 2,000 user-generated experiences in 2024, leveraging a vast community of 130,000 creators and 24,000 LAND owners.
Seamless Content Sharing
One major development is the removal of the initial application process for publishing. Now, LAND owners can instantly share their creations on The Sandbox Map. This crucial update is expected to ignite a surge in user-generated content on the platform.
Boosting Creator Potential
The platform is also launching the impressive $100 million SAND Game Maker Fund, a substantial increase from the previous $10 million fund. Chief Content Officer, Nicola Sebastiani, underlines their commitment to valuing experiences and the adventures created by the community.
This fund not only aims to support content creation but also to reward engagement within the platform. It introduces a DAO-based selection system to ensure a fair and transparent allocation of resources.
No-Code Game Maker
In addition, The Sandbox is gearing up to release an enhanced version of its free no-code Game Maker by the end of this year. This update will introduce fresh gameplay mechanics and social features. It simplifies content production, fostering more user engagement.
Putting Creators First
The Global Creators Day in Hong Kong went beyond just announcements. It solidified The Sandbox’s dedication to an entertainment ecosystem that values participation and reward. The executive team reiterated their vision for a creator-centric future, with the introduction of eight new cultural neighborhoods this year and a remarkable 125,000 LAND parcels already sold.
The future of creative expression in the metaverse is taking shape, and The Sandbox is leading the way with these groundbreaking initiatives.
