The Sandbox (SAND) is concentrating its marketing efforts on regular land sales, preparing its metaverse world for new builds. The MegaCity land sale will offer unique bundles for projects that want to gain influence over digital land.
MegaCity works as a map expansion, and The Sandbox game team has formed partnerships to make sure the new neighborhood has distinguished representation from film, entertainment, business, and finance. The Sandbox has attracted companies from Hong Kong to occupy some of the plots and estates and potentially participate in future developments.
The Sandbox continues to offer item building mechanics, though the marketplace is still limited to selected creators.
SAND Aims to Recover $5
After a market-wide slide, the expected land sale seems to help the SAND market price. SAND traded at $4.99, adding more than 3.5% in the past day despite the overall market correction.
As the game token tied to one of the best-developed game and metaverse portfolios, SAND sees extreme price predictions of nearly $20.
Despite the year-end weakness, SAND lined up among the best-performing altcoins in 2021 and set expectations for additional growth.
The Sandbox Migrates to Polygon
After a testing stage, The Sandbox ecosystem will migrate to Polygon. This is part of the trend where metaverse and play to earn games choose alternatives to Ethereum.
The move to Polygon will be incentivized by having SAND owners transfer their tokens to the new network, while providing both SAND and MATIC liquidity for decentralized trading.
The migration may have positive effects in the long run, but may cause problems for Ethereum-based SAND users. Taking tokens out of the Polygon network may be hampered and there may be some technical difficulties with the tokens.
MATIC responded to the news by becoming one of the faster token recoveries in January. MATIC traded at $2.16, with a slight daily gain. Despite extreme predictions, MATIC failed to get closer to $10, the upper range of predictions for the latest bull market.
