Per sources close to the exciting development, a fresh build of The Sandbox, dubbed Alpha Season 2, is now live and the four-week-long launch event will showcase a variety of features that members of The Sandbox metaverse have been building on their virtual lands. For those who are unaware, The Sandbox, which is a division of Animoca Brands, a leading developer and publisher of blockchain games, allows members of its metaverse to play, create, own, and govern a virtual world made by players. While The Sandbox looks a lot like other user-generated content worlds such as Minecraft, Roblox, and others, the major differentiating factor is that the former is however powered by blockchain technology and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

Alpha Season 2 will build on the success of the first Alpha Season, which attracted over 200,000 visitors, earned 90 percent positive feedback, and distributed over five million $SAND.”At press time, the price of SAND token is hovering around $3.03, with a market cap of $3.41 billion, according to CoinMarketCap.
