GamerHash partners with The Sandbox, begins work on two games in the leading user-generated metaverse
PARIS – June 7, 2022 – The GamerHash, one of the biggest crypto gaming ecosystems in the world, has partnered with The Sandbox, a leading decentralized gaming virtual world and a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, to deliver incredible experiences in The Sandbox metaverse. GamerHash will create new games in the metaverse while educating 700.000 gamers about the values of NFTs, decentralization, and blockchain. GamerHash is already making its first game in The Sandbox.
How did it all start: GamerHash and The Sandbox
GamerHash has been close to ideas represented by The Sandbox since the early days. According to the GamerHash team, The Sandbox metaverse is not just its impressive map, but so much more because of the vivid communities that unleash their creativity together. This way of thinking led the GamerHash to buy a 6x6 LAND parcel during one of the first sales in 2020. Since then the companies have been close, also because of the joint membership in Blockchain Game Alliance.
The GamerHash community consists of over 700.000 gamers globally who understand the world of crypto and mining. Bringing them to The Sandbox metaverse is a great introduction and a reason to educate them on how NFTs, crypto, and metaverse work together while of course also having fun.
In addition to a global audience, both companies seek to serve Southeast Asia communities, including Korea, by trying to deliver the best possible crypto and gaming experiences. This region is important as it features a large number of gamers and a high rate of crypto adoption.

The Sandbox and GamerHash were already close, and the next steps are bringing them closer as they create games for their thriving communities and impact metaverse gaming.
With the initial help of The Sandbox team, GamerHash has become the first official Polish partner developing games and working in The Sandbox metaverse!
“GamerHash has an active and engaged community of gamers that have found The Sandbox open metaverse to be a great playground for educating, rewarding, and engaging its members through the creative capabilities offered by our no-code Game Maker. It turned its ideas into reality and brought its mascot to life, making it possible to create expandable adventures its community can engage with, in true Web3 spirit.”
Sebastien Borget (Co-founder and COO) The Sandbox
“We have known The Sandbox team for quite some time thanks to our Blockchain Game Alliance membership, it’s always been a pleasure to work with them. The project is constantly pushing the boundaries of the metaverse, gaming and blockchain. This is why at GamerHash we are very keen on working together to unleash even more of the creative power - especially with our very strong Polish Discord server with a growing community of builders for The Sandbox.”

Into the metaverse gaming
The title by the GamerHash studio in the metaverse is already under construction in The Sandbox and is expected to be released in autumn with the title TRAVERSE: Mars is Mine. The story will feature Astro, GamerHash’s brand hero, and his bravery as he explores the undiscovered secrets of the Universe.
The team is already working on a second game to bring esports to the world of The Sandbox. Apart from the game created by GamerHash in The Sandbox metaverse both teams in their official announcements are promising many events to be happening during the summer, including NFT drops.
GamerHash was created in 2017 with an idea of allowing gamers to share their computing power by simply running the app in the background. Since that time GamerHash grew to over 700 000 users registered and became one of the biggest crypto gaming guilds in the world while driving the web3 adoption.
