Top places to buy Sandbox now
As SAND is such a new asset, it’s yet to be listed on major exchanges. You can still purchase SAND using a DEX (decentralised exchange) though, which just means there are a few extra steps. To buy SAND right now, follow these steps:
1. Buy ETH on a regulated exchange or broker, like eToro ›
We suggest eToro because it’s one of the world’s leading multi-asset trading platforms, an exchange and wallet all-in-one with some of the lowest fees in the industry. It’s also beginner-friendly, and has more payment methods available to users than any other available service.
2. Send your ETH to a compatible wallet like Trust Wallet or MetaMask
You’ll need to create your wallet, grab your address, and send your coins there.
3. Connect your wallet to the Uniswap DEX
Head to Uniswap, and ‘connect’ your wallet to it.
4. You can now swap your ETH for SAND
Now that you’re connected, you’ll be able to swap for 100s of coins including SAND.
What is Sandbox?
The Sandbox is a virtual gaming ecosystem based on Ethereum and Unity Software. Under its play-to-earn model, players can create, own and monetise their gaming experience using SAND. The platform features an NFT marketplace for creators to trade their assets and Voxedit, an asset creation tool for producing non-fungible tokens (NFTs) that can be used in-game. The Sandbox Game Maker lets anyone build, share and monetise 3D games on the platform. Token holders can vote on key decisions related to the ecosystem via a DAO.
Pixowl launched Sandbox a decade ago. Pixowl was founded by entrepreneurs Arthur Madrid and Sebastien Borget and acquired by the prominent Hong Kong-based VC fund Animoca Brands in 2018.
