The Sandbox, a decentralized virtual world game from Animoca Brands, has announced a new partnership with two musicians, Richie Hawtin and deadmau5. The partnership was organized through Pixelynx, a gaming venture created by two musicians that aims to bring together the three entertainment sectors: digital collectibles, games and virtual worlds.
Richie Hawtin and deadmau5 are pushing the boundaries of new technologies and experimenting with virtual worlds, non-fungible tokens (NFT) and blockchain. Pixelynx acquired LAND and launched gaming and NFT capabilities, bringing a unique vision of music in the metaverse to The Sandbox.
The Sandbox is a unique virtual world where players can create, own and monetize their gaming experience using NFTs. These NFTs come in the form of SAND, ASSET, and LAND. SAND is the currency used by The Sandbox that can be used to purchase ASSET. ASSET is a token that serves as a creation element in The Sandbox Game Maker. These Sandbox components work in concert, allowing players to create digital assets in the form of NFTs, upload them to the marketplace, and integrate them into games using #nocode Game Maker.
