In addition, Ultra and The Sandbox will collaborate to enable cross-chain interoperability of NFTs.
Ultra is a next-generation game distribution platform designed to create a fair ecosystem for the future of games distribution. The platform’s partners include gaming giants such as Ubisoft, Atari and AMD already onboard. Ultra’s goal is to create a one-stop shop entertainment platform enabling gamers to play, discover, buy, trade, earn, compete and socialize with zero friction.
The Sandbox is building a unique virtual world where players can build, own and monetize their gaming experiences online using NFTs (non-fungible tokens) and $SAND, the main utility token for the platform. The Sandbox’s vision is to offer a deeply immersive metaverse in which virtual worlds and games will be created collaboratively and without central authority.
Creators and aspiring or established game developers can download The Sandbox Game Maker at http://gamemaker.sandbox.game or discover it on Ultra Games.
Ultra will incentivize various communities in and outside of The Sandbox to visit Ultra lands and create unique art, games and events. Creators will be rewarded with exclusive NFTs as well as $UOS and $SAND, creating a cross-blended experience between The Sandbox and Ultra’s ecosystems.
In addition, The Sandbox and Ultra are establishing research into the interoperability of NFTs between the Ethereum blockchain and Ultra, aiming to facilitate the trading and exchanging of digital assets earned by players through the different environments.
