The Sandbox (SAND) Hits New Lows; Sales Volume Declines by More Than $70M

New to The Sandbox? 

Initially created as casual games for smartphones, The Sandbox had two hits with its namesake in 2011 and The Sandbox Evolution in 2016. The two games generated around 40 million downloads on the Google Play and Apple Store. 

Having witnessed the inception of blockchain-based games, developer/publisher “Pixowl” decided to move the game and its followers to the ecosystem of Ethereum in 2018.  

Some of the best games on The Sandbox include but are not limited to, Astroneer, Garry’s Mod, The Sims 4, Core Keeper, Dyson Sphere Program, Minecraft, Terraria, Grand Theft Auto Online, Elite Dangerous, No Man’s Sky, Cities: Skylines, Crusader Kings 3, Factorio, Scrap Mechanic, Going Medieval, RimWorld, Rust, Valheim, Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord, and Red Dead Redemption 2.

Why the drop in sales? 

When you assess the dip in the number of unique buyers from June 2022, it is clear that the plunge in sales volume led to the fall in total transactions, with 367 unique buyers, and 700 transactions.

In comparison to Jan. 2022 when the digital collectibles reached a peak in sales this year, unique buyers stood at 3,841 unique buyers and corresponded to 6,722 transactions. 

The Sandbox sales were around $77.92 million by the end of the first month of the year.

The average sale value also tumbled from $11,591.46 in January to $109.39. This was a 99% plunge in five months. 

SAND price reaction 

SAND opened on June 1, with a trading price of $1.45, reached a monthly high of $1.46, tested a monthly low of $0.7379, and closed the month at $1.12. Overall, this equates to a 22% decrease in the opening and closing price of SAND in June.
