To buy a LAND, you will need to follow these 3 steps:
What is LAND in The Sandbox?
LANDS are digital pieces of real estate in The Sandbox metaverse that players can buy to build experiences on top of. Once you own a LAND, you will be able to populate it with Games and Assets. Each LAND is a unique (non-fungible) token lying on the public Ethereum blockchain (ERC-721). For more detailed information on LAND tokens, read, this article. Also, for a thorough analysis of LAND token economics, please read here.
The LAND Presale 4 rounds will be the last presales to take place before the launch of the public round at the end of the year. Presale 4.2 will take place in multiple intervals similar to the MoonSale, consisting of multiple batches with a total of 4,536 parcels of LANDS up for grabs.
All rounds in the fourth presale will remain at a 10% Discount.
In addition to this exclusive presale, this round introduces new and rare ASSETS, NFT characteristics, and new partners!
LAND Presale 4.2 launches on September 15th at 11:00 AM GMT.
Similar to the first round, special LANDs will be sold in the form of Premium LAND, which will also include Premium ASSETS.
What are Premium LANDS?
A Premium LAND is a single parcel of LAND that features specific characteristics, including Premium ASSETS. They will appear as Yellow LANDS on the map and are defined by two main characteristics:
- Premium Location: Each Premium LAND is located close to either a Partner, an IP, or a TSB Estate. These locations are highly likely to attract more visitors thanks to partner visibility as well as the Transportation System and the recently introduced Portals.
- Premium ASSETS: Premium LANDs are pre-assigned with a bundle of exclusive ASSETS to kickstart game creation. When purchasing a Premium LAND, buyers will also receive 4 premium ASSETS.
More information will be provided on the specific Premium ASSETS to be featured in Premium LANDS. We can not wait to share this information!
Each Premium LAND includes 1 Common, 1 Rare, 1 Epic and 1 Legendary Premium ASSET. Each Legendary ASSET will showcase a unique set of attributes, behavior, and skins, all of which have a limited scarcity of 200 copies.

The Sandbox Foundation Revenue shares on LAND sales
26.25% of LAND Sales revenues go directly to The Sandbox Foundation (and can be also reallocated to the Staking Pool)
The Foundation supports the ecosystem growth, offering grants to incentivize high quality content and game production on the platform. At the time of writing, the Foundation has funded more than15 game projects and granted 100 artists with funding to produce NFTs.
The allocation of LAND sales to the Foundation offers a sustainable model in which the grants pool is replenished with all remaining rounds. As a game creator, this means that The Sandbox will continue to fund its community as we build out the infrastructure for a more distributed ecosystem.
An additional portion of LAND sales revenue will go to the Staking Pool, to be distributed as Staking Rewards in mechanisms to be announced in the near future.
