The Sandbox Writing Competition: Enter NOW to WIN exciting prizes!
Dear Medium community,
We have been overwhelmed by the support and love we have received from you all. Your positive feedback has always inspired us to put the best efforts in all our endeavors. And now it’s payback time!
That’s why The Sandbox team is excited to announce a competition for all the cryptocurrency enthusiasts.
Known for its two smash mobile hits The Sandbox (2011) and The Sandbox Evolution (2016), Sandbox is a decentralized platform made by players. These two games together generated 40 million downloads across iOS and Android. In 2018, developer/Publisher Pixowl took an initiative to bring this successful User Generated Content gaming IP and a huge community of creators from mobile apps to the blockchain ecosystem. Sandbox aims to provide freedom to the creators by giving them true ownership of their creations and non-fungible tokens. Apart from that, we also reward these creators for their participation in the ecosystem. It is our goal to build a Metaverse without any central authority, where all users will get the opportunity to vote and make decisions together with us.
The Sandbox is run by the utility token, SAND which is an ERC-20 token used for all of the ecosystem’s transactions and interactions. In the Sandbox metaverse, LAND is a virtual piece of real estate. Players buy LAND in order to fill it with games, assets, and interactive experiences. Each LAND is a unique token on the Ethereum blockchain.
We, at The Sandbox, have a penchant for games and blockchain technology. We are excited to meet people who share our enthusiasm, no matter whether they are an investor or not. Therefore, this competition is open to all. Anyone interested in cryptocurrency is welcome to pen down their thoughts and post their content.
What is in it for me?
That’s a valid question. To pump you up, let’s start our discussion by informing you about all the exciting prizes you will be receiving as a winner. We are looking forward to many informative and intriguing submissions from the medium community. Our team of proficient experts along with feedback from the different platforms will play a crucial role in selecting the top three winners. We are planning to host many more contests in the upcoming months.
Coming back to the prize. All the top three winners will receive one LAND.
Additionally, each winner will receive $SAND tokens based on their ranking. 1st winner will be given $500 worth of $SAND, 2nd winner will be given $250 worth of $SAND and 3rd winner will be awarded $100 worth of $SAND.
