UniX Gaming, one of the biggest play-to-earn gaming guilds in the world, has entered into a partnership with The Sandbox (SAND/USD), Invezz learned from a press release first published on Bitcoinist. The Sandbox has formed partnerships with Adidas, Atari, Care Bears, and other major brands.
Playing a role as ecosystem builder
The metaverse is still in its infancy despite all the hype around it. UniX will play a key role in the development of The Sandbox metaverse as an ecosystem builder. It aims to help prominent persons and brands create their own virtual worlds with digital stores, buildings, NFTs, mini-games and more.
Promoting universal access to gaming
The crypto gaming guild is best-known for supporting new gamers aiming to access the extremely competitive play-to-earn gaming space. The prohibitive entrance barrier is among the challenges of P2E gaming. Most popular games require high upfront investments in NFTs, which many players can’t afford, especially those in developing countries.
UniX has collected a large number of P2E game NFTs. Promising players receive scholarships from the guild, which also loans the NFTs they need to begin playing. When a player earns a reward, it is split with UniX 50:50.
UniX is creating its own games as well as a launchpad for new P2E games to raise money through an Initial Game Offering. Bibits, its first title, is set to launch later this year.
Julien Gratz, Head of Publishing at The Sandbox, commented:
We are very pleased to welcome the UNIX Gaming team as a partner within The Sandbox. They are one of the fastest-growing and best guilds we saw so far, and their dedication to building a better community thanks to Creator skills and Building skills learning is a much-needed element for our ecosystem; we are definitely a good match!
UniX’ new games development studio, 1Mhz Studios, will play a major role in helping brands create mini-games that NFTs will monetize. The studio team’s members have previously worked on movies and games such as Pacific Rim Uprising and Star Trek: Resurgence.
Huge benefits for the UniX community
The partnership will create more opportunities for high-profile partnerships with well-known brands as well as augment the community’s already impressive standing in the P2E gaming universe.
