The Sandbox is widely popular and is always in the top 3 metaverse tokens. It has partnerships with various acclaimed artists, including hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg.

It also allows users to create 3D Games for free. SAND being the utility token, is key to all transactions in the ecosystem. SAND holders are also voters who can propose changes on the platform, through a structure known as DAO.
