Today, The Sandbox announced the sales of its virtual NFT properties to a new set of investors. The Sandbox was launched about eight years ago where users can build, own and trade their gaming experiences. The Sandbox Marketplace was also launched around last week where players can purchase NFTs using the $SAND token.
Congrats to our fantastic #TheSandbox community 🙏, we just set another record 🎉
