From that light show, we decided to extract the tower, illuminated from all sides, and make it the centerpiece of the experience. As such, it contains the vast majority of the content to which players have access. After many discussions with the narrative team, the project was launched. Our mission was to build a huge tower in a Martian desert in which the “Tweezers” had gone mad after being forced to listen to deadmau5’s mix for an eternity. As a Level Designer, bui...

Have you ever wondered how the metaverse fits into the strategy of the world’s most iconic brands and celebrities? In this edition of our Unbox series, we sat down with Derek Roberto, Strategic Advisor for Madballs, to uncover how Madballs completed a collection sellout of 2,000 avatars in 90 minutes and what might have caused the IP to go viral in The Sandbox’s ecosystem.

The key to the avatar collection’s eventual success was giving the...

Starting August 29, 2023, the exchange will suspend trading for AXS, CHZ, MANA, MATIC, NEAR, SAND and SOL for U.S. customers, canceling all existing orders for those assets. After this deadline, U.S.-based Bitstamp users will no longer be able to trade these crypto assets on the platform.Bitstamp Suspends Trading of 7 Cryptocurrencies for U.S. Customers Amid Regulatory Climate
Bitstamp says the decision comes as part of a continuous evaluation of its crypto offerings, taking into account the changing regulatory environment in the United States.

|Sandbox Set For $133 Million Token Unlock, A Bearish Trigger For SAND Pr...
Decentralized gaming platform, The Sandbox is set to execute a SAND token release valued at $133.86 million. According to data from TokenUnlocks, Sandbox will release 332.55 million SAND tokens into circulation on August 14, representing 16.16% of the token’s maximum supply.
New SAND Tokens In 2023 To Rise Over 700 Million
With the upcoming SAND release, the total number of new SAND tokens in 2023 is expected to rise to 705.3 million. This latest unlock will add to the 372.75 million SAND released earlier during the last token unlock in February.
Based on more data from Token Unlocks, the newly released tokens will be allocated to various parties, including the Sandbox's development team, project advisors, strategic and seed investors, and the project’s reserve.
SAND functions as the utility token of the Sandbox metaverse, serving as the platform's payment medium and governance token. According to its design, SAND is expected to undergo a token unlock every six months until 2025.
Currently, the number of circulating SAND tokens is 2.05 billion, representing 68.6% of SAND’s total supply. With the projected release on August 14, these figures are expected to jump to 2.39 billion and 84.76%, respectively.

|Bloodbath: The Reasons Behind SOL, MATIC, ADA, SAND Crash Today
The altcoin market is under fire. Major cryptocurrencies like Solana (SOL), Polygon (MATIC), Cardano (ADA), and many others - are plummeting in value.
The heatmap below is pretty indicative of the troubles that the market is going through. It also reveals that investors are anything but confident right now.
While it's anyone's guess why exactly that might be, two things happened in the past few days that might provide some sort of an explanation.
SEC Names 13 Cryptocurrencies Securities
Earlier this week, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed a lawsuit against Binance, its CEO, and the US arm of the firm.
As if that wasn't enough, the very next day, the SEC completed the one-two punch, filing another case against the leading US-based crypto exchange - Coinbase. While both of the claims have their intricacies, the 101-page file against Coinbase seems to have had a greater impact on the broader market.
The main reason seems to be the fact that the SEC compiled a 'non-exhaustive' list of 13 cryptocurrencies that it considers to fulfill the requirements of being securities.
As one might expect, these include:
Others on the list are SAND, AXS, FIL, ICP, NEAR, etc.
A broad majority of the above are also tanking in value today. But that might not be the only reason, albeit likely the primary one.

|Bitcoin Price Tumbles Below $27K, The Sandbox (SAND) Soars 6% Daily (Mar...
Bitcoin tried its hand at taking down $27,500 yesterday once again but was rejected and pushed back down south.
Most altcoins are also in the red today, with ETH slipping below $1,900. XRP, on the other hand, is up by just over 2% in a day.
BTC Down Below $27K
Despite the positive start last week, which took BTC up north to a three-week high at $28,500, the seven-day period didn't end all that well for the asset. It tumbled on Friday to a weekly low of $26,500 (on Bistamp) but managed to recover some of the losses by the weekend.
As with the previous few, the weekend was quite calm, with BTC spending most of it at around $27,000. It initiated a leg-up that drove it to a multi-day high of just under $27,500, but the bears intercepted the move and didn't allow any further increases.
Just the opposite, bitcoin headed straight south, which drove it to its lowest position since Friday, below $27,000. Consequently, BTC's market capitalization has declined by over $5 billion in a day to $520 billion. Its dominance over the alts has also taken another slight hit and is down to 45.8%.

SAND Defies Market Sentiment
Most altcoins have followed BTC south. Ethereum is a prime example, as it has dropped below $1,900 following a minor daily decline. Binance Coin is also close to breaking below $300 after a 2% drop.
Cardano, Dogecoin, Polygon, Polkadot, and Shiba Inu have all declined by similar percentages. Litecoin has lost even more value, as LTC is down by almo...

Hex Trust, a regulated institutional-grade crypto-asset custodian, today announced it has partnered with The Sandbox, a leading decentralized gaming virtual world to enable fully-licensed and highly-secure custody of assets such as LAND in The Sandbox’s metaverse.
The partnership sees Hex Trust fully integrate LAND into its custody platform, Hex Safe, which supports cryptocurrencies, security tokens, and NFTs. The Sandbox has added Hex Trust as a certified partner to its directory list for custody services.
“We are always on the lookout to provide new ways to secure our community’s digital assets and bring peace of mind to The Sandbox’s community. After working with Hex Trust for the past few months, we are very excited to formally establish a partnership to further integrate their services into the metaverse.”
- Sebastien Borget, COO & Co-Founder of The Sandbox
This integration enables institutional investors, brands, and corporations to store LAND assets with Hex Trust, instead of having to store these valuable virtual land assets in online hot wallets exposed to security and hacking risks.
Besides providing custody services for LAND, Hex Trust provides services to buy and sell LAND, as well as financing solutions, including leasing LAND assets and virtual mortgages. Hex Trust entered The Sandbox’s metaverse in 2022 and purchased an Estate in the ‘Web3 Zone’.

|The Sandbox Suffers Security Breach: Users Targetted via Phishing Email
Blockchain-based metaverse company - The Sandbox - has warned its users about a security breach through a malware application.
According to the official blog post, an unauthorized third party managed to gain access to the computer of one of its employees and used the information it found to send an email falsely claiming to be from The Sandbox. Its statement read:
'We have blocked the employee’s accounts and access to The Sandbox, reformatted the employee’s laptop, and reset all related passwords including requiring two-factor authentication. We have not identified any further impacts.'
The Sandbox explained that the security breach, which was first identified on February 26, enabled the third party to access several email addresses to which it then sent a message falsely claiming to be from the company.
The email in question, which was loaded with malware hyperlinks, was titled 'The Sandbox Game (PURELAND) Access.' This allowed the exploiter to remotely install malware on a user's computer, granting it control over the machine as well as access to the user's personal information.
The company warned against possible phishing attacks and urged them to avoid clicking on a hyperlink in the phishing email or any other suspicious links to prevent malware from being installed on their computers. It also recommended users strengthen their passwords and implement two-factor authentication,
The Sandbox, however, clarified that the third party's access was l...
|Bitcoin Rollercoaster on Powell Speech, SAND and ROSE Rally Over 25% (Ma...
The past 24 hours were quite tumultuous within the cryptocurrency market as major large caps went through a rollercoaster during the speech of the Chairman of the Federal Reserve - Jerome Powell.
Meanwhile, some altcoins are having a go at new multi-week highs, charting gains upwards of 25% on the day. Let's dive in.
Bitcoin and Large-Caps Pump, Dump, and Pump Again
Yesterday, the Chairman of the US Federal Reserve - Jerome Powell - was talking on the matters of inflation, the current and future state of the US economy.
He said little that he hadn't already, reiterating his comments from the previous week that the economy's disinflation (or inflation that's slowing down, in his words) is still within its very early stages - particularly in the housing sector.
As it's always the case, this caused the market to move. Initially, the price skyrocketed to a high above $23,300, but almost immediately after the speech, all the gains were wiped out in what turned out to be a chop.
Fortunately, the bulls were able to regroup and retake control, pushing the price back above $23K in the hours that followed.
This entire rodeo ended up with about $84 million worth of liquidated positions in the past 24 hours.
SAND and ROSE Rally Ahead
Altcoins experienced even more volatility than BTC. Most of the market is painted green. The cryptocurrencies with larger market capitalization failed to chart any considerable gains. These include ETH, XRP, SOL, SHIB, ATOM, LTC, and othe...
|SAND Skyrockets 30% Following a Partnership with Saudi Arabia
The company behind the play-to-earn blockchain game - Sandbox - signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Saudi Arabia Digital Government Authority (DGA) to incite developments in the Metaverse space.
The native token of the platform - SAND - climbed to $0.91 shortly after the announcement, a 27% increase compared to yesterday's figures.
Sebastien Borget - Co-Founder and COO of Sandbox - disclosed the partnership on LinkedIn and Twitter, saying the allies will explore, advise, and support 'activations of the Metaverse.'

— Sebastien (@borgetsebastien) February 7, 2023
The news triggered a price expansion for SAND, pushing it to $0.91. The cryptocurrency was hovering around $0.71 24 hours ago, meaning a surge of close to 30% surge.
This has marked SAND's best performance in three months. Still, the token stands far from its all-time high of over $7.50, registered in November 2021.

The Sandbox is one of the leading players in the GameFi space. Its native token SAND is now going down the net of ETH whales as the altcoin rally continues into its third week. According to CoinGecko, the token has gone up by 76% in the past two weeks.
ETH whales are also adding fuel to this fire, accumulating SAND and including the crypto on its top 10 tokens bought in the past 24 hours. Along with the recent release of Game Maker 0.8, The Sandbox ecosystem is expected to continue to be a dominant player in the GameFi space.

More Support From ETH Whales
The whale buying spree has effectively pushed the price of SAND up on the broader market market. Looking at the charts, the token is up almost 80% in the past two weeks. This in turn made the token test the $0.7540 price resistance level.
On top of the whale buying spree, the release of Game Maker 0.8 certainly has an effect on the token. According to the development team’s Medium post, this upgrade brought features that were requested by the community in the past.

|SAND Experiences Increased Selling, But Traders Should Short At This Lev...
SAND, the SandBox, has been free-falling since the month of August. The coin has registered a severe decline in demand, which has caused the crypto to lose further value. The asset has pierced through various support levels over the past few months. It lost 2.2% of its value in the last 24 hours.
Over the past week, the coin has depreciated in double digits, which has caused the coin to reach a multi-month low on the chart. The technical outlook displayed that the coin has received very little demand, and the buyers have exited the market.
The consistent fall in demand can be attributed to major market movers faltering on their respective charts. Support from the broader market remains crucial for The Sandbox (SAND) to recover.
The technical outlook still points to the coin losing further value, which indicates that sellers can liquidate the asset and purchase it when it dips to sell it again when the value rises. The trading volume in Sandbox declined, indicating that the bears were in charge of the market.
SAND Price Analysis: One-Day Chart
The coin was exchanging hands at $0.43 at the time of writing. SAND has been unable to maintain a price above $0.50 since the coin lost the $0.70 price. If The SandBox price stood above the $0.50 level, then there was a chance that the coin could propel the price further.
Presently, the immediate resistance for the asset stands at $0.53. The price of crypto will rally if it breaks above $0.53. Conversely, if the altcoin dips, the first...

|Biggest Movers: ADA, SAND Surge to Multi-Week Highs on Saturday
Cardano was one of Saturday's notable gainers, with the token surging to a three-week high. The sandbox was also in the green, rising to a multi-week peak, as sentiment in the cryptocurrency market remains mostly bullish. Overall, the global crypto market cap is up nearly 2% as of writing.Cardano (ADA)
Cardano (ADA) climbed to a three-week high on Saturday, as the token rose for a fourth consecutive session.

Looking at the chart, another notable occurrence is that the relative strength index (RSI) of 14-days also moved beyond a ceiling, at 56.00.
Now tracking close to 58.00, should the index hit its higher resistance point of 60.40, we could see ADA price recapture the $0.5440 mark.
The Sandbox (SAND)

Sandbox (SAND) was one of the most active cryptocurrencies on Thursday, with values increasing by as much as 14 percent. After reaching a low of $1.13 on Wednesday, the SAND/USD pair reached a session high of $1.28 earlier today.
The token reached its highest level since June 25 and drew closer to a crucial resistance level as a result. During the same timeframe, the market capitalization of the token increased by 15 percent. It was valued at $1.58 billion as of press time, according to data from Coingecko.

Major Indicators Showing Positive Values
According to Santiment statistics, SAND's major indicators improved over the past day, with the exchange flow balance exhibiting a positive value of $1,411,000.
In the previous 24 hours, significantly more SAND tokens were supplied to exchanges than were withdrawn. In such circumstances, a further price increase is anticipated.
Based on the chart, this resistance is located at $1.35 and has not been breached since late May, when prices were trading near $1.50.
To not only reach this ceiling, but perhaps surpass it, the 14-day relative strength index would need to surpass its own barrier. As of Thursday at midday, the SAND RSI is tracking at 57.50, which is just below the level of resistance at 58.

This ceiling is the $2.50 mark which hasn't been hit since June 25, when bulls made an attempt to move past this point.
Looking at the chart, although prices may once again collide with this ceiling, a breakout might be difficult due to an upcoming obstacle.
That would be the resistance of 49.80 on the 14-day RSI, which has not been broken since early in April.

SAND was also one of today's biggest gainers, as prices rose by as much as 12% earlier in the day.

|TIME Partners With The Sandbox to Build TIME Square in the Metaverse
TIME Magazine has continued its foray into the cryptocurrency and NFT world by partnering with blockchain-based gaming company The Sandbox to build TIME Square in the metaverse.
Building a Virtual Times Square
According to the official announcement, the initiative was inspired by the 'virtual spirit and energy' of the real-life Times Square neighborhood in New York City.
Times Square is an iconic cultural center, commercial intersection, tourist destination, and neighborhood in Midtown Manhattan, New York, United States. The area is famous for its vast, illuminated advertising billboards and is considered the 'heart of New York' and 'the Crossroads of the World.'
TIME plans to recreate something similar but in the metaverse. The partnership will allow the media company to build TIME Square on its virtual land in The Sandbox, making it TIME's first-ever metaverse destination since it joined the NFT space last year.

|Mastercard Partners With Immutable X, The Sandbox for NFT Purchases With...
Global payment technology company Mastercard is now enabling the purchase of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) using fiat.
For the new project, Mastercard has partnered with Immutable X, a layer-2 network for Ethereum. The company will also be working with NFT-based online game The Sandbox, fintech firm MoonPay, and the NFT platforms Nifty Gateway, Candy Digital, Spring, and Mintable.
Mastercard and NFTs
With the Mastercard initiative, people interested in NFTs can purchase them without needing to acquire crypto first. In this way, buyers are relieved of the “stress and uncertainty” that could be part of obtaining an NFT, especially for the less tech-savvy folks.
On the other hand, NFT creators get exposure to a broader audience, likely leading to growth in their customer base.
As for safety, Mastercard promises to “reinforce customer safety” and “protect user data” for people purchasing NFTs with its card. The project will likely discourage bad actors looking to con people out of their digital artworks. The hype in NFTs following million-dollar sales and celebrity endorsement has attracted scammers, as would anything that popular.
Late last month, a Moonbird NFT holder lost his 29 NFTs worth $1.5 million to fraud. The malicious buyer asked that they complete the transaction on a private platform, only to evade their side of the deal.
Another motivator behind Mastercard’s latest development is a survey it published this month. Out of the 35,...
