Pixowl founded The Sandbox in 2012 as a mobile gaming platform and is a play-to-earn blockchain version that allows users to create their own avatars to access the various hubs, environments and games on the crypto-driven metaverse. This version of the game, launched in 2018 by its cofounders Sebastien Borget and Arthur Madrid, lets players create their virtual worlds with non-fungible tokens on Ethereum, earning rewards while participating in the ecosystem. In 2021, Borget and Madrid released the blockchain version of The Sandbox, which eventually became one of the fastest-growing cryptocurrency games. The software allows users to build endless 3D items, ranging from buildings and vehicles to costumes and creatures. They can then add these items to the blockchain as NFTs, which they can sell on secondary markets such as OpenSea or The Sandbox’s crypto marketplace. With no background in coding required, players can design full 3D games they can monetize.
