By The Sandbox
Paris, October 21st, 2020 — The Sandbox is proud to announce that it has entered into a partnership with Simplex, the leading fiat infrastructure provider for the digital asset ecosystem. With this partnership, it will now be possible to buy our main utility token $SAND with a credit or debit card from anywhere in the world. The Sandbox is one step closer to mainstream adoption thanks to the partnership with the team that is pioneering the first riskless global fiat onramp using a credit and debit card.
Simplex is an EU licensed financial institution that provides worldwide fraud free payment processing services. Simplex will introduce credit card purchasing to mainstream users worldwide, thus aligning with our mainstream adoption plan. Through this partnership, $SAND purchases will become easier and more convenient for our community. With this new way of obtaining $SAND, users will have one less step to go through to interact with our platform, enhancing the user-experience and creating a seamless environment. On top of that, Simplex’s advanced AI technology will offer fraud protection and chargeback coverage to secure all transactions of The Sandbox’s token.
The Sandbox is a virtual world where players can build, own, and monetize their gaming experiences in the Ethereum blockchain using NFTs and $SAND, the platform’s utility token. LANDS are non-fungible token (ERC-721) NFTs that represent unique digital locations in the universe of The Sandbox. $SAND will enable players to create, play, own, govern, trade and earn within The Sandbox virtual world gaming platform. It is the ERC-20 token that will be used all across The Sandbox metaverse.
Over 60 partnerships have been secured by The Sandbox. Award-winning game companies such as Square Enix, Atari, top decentralized games such as Crypto Kitties, and major brands such as RollerCoaster Tycoon, Care Bears, and Shaun the Sheep as it builds a fun, creative “play-to-earn” gaming platform offering virtual worlds and game experiences owned and created by players. By allowing players to experience iconic games, characters, and brands in conjunction with player-created content, The Sandbox offers a rich experience joining the global impact and awareness of popular brands with fresh experiences created by players themselves. This unique combination allows the gaming platform to be at once recognizable to players around the world while offering the chance to express unparalleled creativity and imagination.
Regarding the partnership, both parties are extremely excited:
“Simplex empowers anyone, anywhere with the ability to easily purchase any digital assets,” stated Simplex founder and CEO, Nimrod Lehavi. “We are excited to enable millions of users to easily and securely purchase the $SAND token and onramp into the ecosystem with their credit or debit card.” — Ari Pitkanen, CEO and co-founder of Simplex
“Owning a piece of the metaverse just got even simpler with Simplex! Thanks to their solution, we can now offer direct purchases of SAND tokens to our existing community members and artists & gamers who are looking at joining our gaming virtual world. This is a great step forward making The Sandbox more mainstream and enable access to our virtual LANDS and NFTs to everyone.” — Sebastien Borget, COO and co-founder of The Sandbox.
