Third-Party Developer Introduces Play and Earn Event in The Sandbox
The Sandbox embraces third-party developers crafting their own play and earn events. "Pickaxe Master" leads the charge, inviting resource-harvesting competition.
The Sandbox is embracing a fresh approach to events as third-party developers step in to create their own play and earn experiences within the ecosystem.
While The Sandbox has previously collaborated with other projects for events and competitions, this marks a new chapter where creators are taking the reins to introduce and reward their own immersive experiences. Leading the way is the game "Pickaxe Master," which initiated its alpha season one recently. Geared towards resource-harvesting enthusiasts, this PvE game allows players to compete for top positions on mining leaderboards.
Pickaxe Master's alpha mining season features multiple leaderboards categorized into three segments: free-to-play, pickaxe owners, and clan avatar owners. These leaderboards offer substantial rewards, with the pickaxe owner and clan avatar owner categories distributing 2400 SAND each to top players. In contrast, the free-to-play category divides 200 SAND among its top performers.
To enhance accessibility, Pickaxe Master includes an introductory quest to assist players in getting started. Those interested in learning more can explore the game's website and Twitter account, and acquire Pickaxe NFTs from The Sandbox's official marketplace.
Additionally, The Sandbox continues to host a series of official events, with four ongoing and another upcoming. One notable event is the "Elvis Diner Social Club," developed by Elvis On-Chain, an official offshoot of Elvis Enterprises. This endeavor seeks to bring the legendary King to the digital realm. Participation in these events requires users to create a Sandbox account and download the game client. Some events offer added incentives to NFT holders from their collections, inviting users to explore the unique rewards each event has to offer.
As The Sandbox widens its scope to accommodate events curated by third-party developers, the platform's diversity and vibrancy are set to flourish, providing players with new and exciting ways to engage with blockchain gaming.
