Individual creators will ultimately shape the metaverse: Sandbox founders

Individual creators and brands will ultimately determine the future of the metaverse, not a centralized entity, according to the co-founders of The Sandbox.

On Nov. 3, the team behind the Ethereum-based metaverse announced on X (formerly Twitter) it had made The Sandbox Map accessible to everyone, where “LAND” owners can publish their own experiences without needing to partake in an application process (which was previously required).


Starting today, LAND owners in The Sandbox can instantly publish experiences on the map!

Sandbox said it will also update its Game Maker tool before 2024, its experience-building and testing tool that is set to introduce new gameplay mechanics, templates and social interactions to make content production even easier.

The firm will also “reignite” its new 100 million SAND Game Maker Fund (currently worth $36 million) in 2024 to build on those updates.
