November came to an end with a new load of updates and was another month full of updates during which we announced the last round of presale that launched on November 12th, launched the second and third phases of our Liquidity Mining Program and as updated both Game Maker and VoxEdit! We’ve detailed our news below so keep on reading to learn all of our updates.
LAND PRESALE 4 Round 3
We launched our last presale 4 round 3 on November 12th.
For this round Premium LANDs made a comeback with two key partners: Atari and Binance. Premium LANDs around their ESTATE came bundled with exclusive NFTs such as the Binance Cyborg, Millipede, Wizard of Irata, Bentley Bear, Yar and Agent X among others.
For this new presale we also announced 10 new partners including Smurfs, Ultra, Ludena Protocol, Splinterlands, NFTbank and Mobox.
Read more about the partners.
The Smurfs will have their special dedicated sale later on this month. 2400 Premium LANDs will be up for grabs bundled with 4 Assets from the famous blue characters’ world. Indeed, when acquiring a Premium Smurf LAND you will get one of 14 Legendary Smurfs characters as well as 3 other characters: one of two epic enemies (Azrael or Howlibird), one rare building and a common Jokey Smurf’s explosive gift.
You can read more about the partnership and what it entails in our detailed article.
$SAND New Exchange Listings
During this month we have arranged a few additional listings. It is now even easier to acquire our token thanks to a multitude of options. $SAND token is now listed on multiple platforms over the world.
Uniswap, Huobi, WazirX, UPbit, crypto.com, Polionex and Kyber Network. Now a few more platforms have welcomed the utility token: Tokyocrypto, MXC and Bitmart and Simplex. This month two additional listings were completed on Bithumb and Liquid.
Liquidity Mining Phase 3
We entered the third phase of our Liquidity Mining Program. This program allows users to stake their $SAND tokens and gain some revenue by adding liquidity to the $SAND/ETH pool on Uniswap. Continuing on the success of the previous phase we will keep the same ingredients: stakers will have the opportunity to earn back a share of the 1.5M $SAND prize pool and LAND owners will have the chance to earn a bigger share thanks to the LAND multiplier feature. Rewards are distributed pro-rata relative to a traders’ percentage of total liquidity over the course of a one month period.
You can read more about the program and how you can participate by reading our dedicated article.
Game Maker Alpha Version
Game Maker v0.3.7 was released on October 26 and was updated a few times since. The existing features were updated and bugs have been fixed.
The Gallery section available on the main menu of the Game Maker allows creators to share their game experiences with others and receive their first feedback from other players before effectively publishing said experiences. From the Gallery, you will be able to access your own creations as well as those of other creators and ones made by our teams.
Creators will have the chance to share their creations with the world and receive their first players in their experiences. This Gallery feature could serve as testing grounds upon launch as the experiences that are in the Gallery will not be part of the metaverse and won’t be accessible through the map.
Any types of experiences can be shared in the Gallery so long as they respect our Terms of Service.
The first instance of Multiplayer gameplay was introduced into the game which allows players to meet up and share. Within the Experience Gallery you’ll be able to find and play within the “Social Park” experience. This experience enables players to try out the first version of the multiplayer, explore the experience and interact with other gamers.
As a bonus, you can hang around every Friday 5pm CET and have a chit chat with our COO Sébastien Borget!
If you want to create games, share your gaming experiences and be part of the first game developers of The Sandbox, you can apply to join our Game Maker Fund and receive a grant of up to $30,000 USD.
