The Sandbox ecosystem is increasingly evolving and the activity is also increasing. While development progress has seemed slow at times, Sandbox appears to be building a robust metaverse empire with over 700 partners, many of whom are building their own Sandbox experiences.
And this month, there is no shortage of events for players to participate in and earn rewards. Three events in particular are taking place this month, all of which offer opportunities to play and win, forcing the popular play-and-win game.
These events give players a chance to try out new free sandbox experiences and earn SAND tokens simply by completing in-game tasks and sharing on Twitter.
To participate, players need to verify their identity through KYC for most events. It’s still free to play and open to anyone with a basic Sandbox account. But to earn NFT rewards and event codes, Sandbox requires identity confirmation.

One of the first play-for-profit events in The Sandbox is the Year of the Rabbit, the year of the rabbit in the Chinese calendar. This is a huge event because it includes experiences from many developers and studios from Hong Kong, Taiwan and China. These include Softstar, Alpacadabraz, PCCW, MTR, Sun Hung Kai & Co. and McDull, The CGame, and Chili Game.
The Lunar New Year event starts on January 18th and lasts until February 28th. Prize pool includes 200,000 SAND tokens, trophies, NFTs and Chinese Dragon puzzle chests, which may include limited edition PFP and Sandbox land
The Metagreen event started on January 10th and will run until February 28th. Players can explore and learn in Metagreen City, an eco-themed creation.
Players can earn exclusive trophies by participating in this event. There is also a bonus pool of 50,000 tokens for the Metagreen event. There are twenty-three missions to complete in this adventure, and the bonus portion of the event ends on February 28th.
Save the bees
This event aims to help educate about global issues related to declining bee populations, while also providing a fun experience. Players can get a chance to win one of 100 NFBee rewards (experience NFTs) by completing 12 missions in The Last Beehive experience. This event ends on January 26th
Players can also reply to a tweet from The Sandbox to help raise money for the BeeFund.
