The push for metaverse projects is greater than ever thanks to the efforts of hundreds of companies.

Today, there are numerous games that make use of cryptocurrency, NFTs, and countless other Web 3.0 features. Of these projects, few stand out more than The Sandbox, a sprawling metaverse with unique blockchain currency and user-created worlds.

Crypto enthusiasts around the world will benefit greatly from knowing how to enter and play games in The Sandbox metaverse. The sooner they get started on that, the sooner they can begin playing to earn as they enjoy hundreds of unique game worlds!

What is The Sandbox?

For those unfamiliar with The Sandbox, it might be easier to think of it like a crypto-based ROBLOX.

The Sandbox is a massive selection of virtual worlds created by users and developers alike. These worlds range from social hangouts to lands with game-like quests and adventures. Each world is known as a LAND, and multiple LANDs can be combined to form an ESTATE.

Through the use of cryptocurrency alongside buying and selling, players can create LANDs with their own unique experiences. Many of these LANDs are free to play, though it’s possible for players to create LANDs that require payment before being accessed.

As mentioned, many of The Sandbox’s qualities center around cryptocurrency and NFTs. A big reason why people play in The Sandbox is to earn the unique SAND cryptocurrency. SAND is required to make purchases across all of the metaverse’s content. This includes certain user-made games, LAND, and ASSETs to be placed within LANDs. ASSETs are yet another example of The Sandbox’s connection to cryptocurrency, acting as player-made creations that are converted to NFTs upon completion. Players can even use NFTs as their own personal avatars.

In simpler terms, The Sandbox is designed around allowing players to earn and use cryptocurrency while playing a wide selection of games.

As one might expect, you’ll need a cryptocurrency wallet to access all features of The Sandbox. Supported wallets include Coinbase, MetaMask, Bitski, Venly, WalletConnect, Wombat, Opera Crypto Wallet, and Brave.

All of these methods except for Bitski and Venly use Web 3 to connect you to The Sandbox. When you enter The Sandbox’s main website, you’ll find a button to sign in that will lead you into the registration process.

Registration through Web 3 is simple; just choose your preferred account and you should get a pop-up from your browser extension asking to link your signature. If you use one of the email methods, you’ll simply have to log into your account after choosing it on The Sandbox. Once everything is prepared, you’ll be able to enter your email and username to finalize your account and start playing in this vast metaverse!

After creating an account, players will want to download The Sandbox’s app version. As the game is currently still in its Alpha version, you should be able to do so by clicking the “Download Alpha” button found on the main website. After downloading and installing the app, you’ll be able to log in directly to The Sandbox. From there, you can visit and discover hundreds of different user-made worlds. You can also use various resources such as__The Sandbox Game Maker__ to make your own game within the metaverse.

Because much of The Sandbox is user-generated, one of the easiest ways to start a game is simply by joining one of the many LANDs you’ll find in its app. However, those who want to take full advantage of The Sandbox itself should instead consider checking out the Play tab on its website.

This will lead to a map filled with official LANDs created by developers and partnered franchises. There are even a few worlds centered around celebrities such as Snoop Dogg and Steve Aoki. Depending on when you decide to play, some worlds might be unavailable and grayed out. If you want to play a world thatis available, simply click on the LAND and hit the Play button that appears. Your browser will launch the application for you and send you right into the LAND!

The Sandbox is currently still in Alpha, and many of the games available in it are very simplistic. They all follow a third-person exploration formula, with many official worlds not even featuring any enemies to battle. Players aiming to follow the play-to-earn angle will likely want to play these worlds, following every quest within them.

Even though many of these quests are simple and at times repetitive, it’s difficult to argue against them when the rewards can result in actual cash prizes. The Sandbox’s simplicity is its greatest weakness, but it also serves as a fantastic strength, allowing players of all origins to jump in and begin earning cryptocurrency.

In the future, many features of The Sandbox might change. Once it leaves Alpha, players can expect a wider variety of worlds, content, and features to look forward to. This article should help out in knowing how to enter and play The Sandbox if players want to jump in immediately. Those that still find themselves having trouble understanding everything can also check out The Sandbox Knowledge Base. Some information within is currently outdated, but it will still serve as a great primer to the metaverse and its systems.
