One of the world’s leading play-to-earn gaming guilds, UniX Gaming, looks likely to grow even bigger after cementing a key alliance with The Sandbox.

The Sandbox is one of the biggest and best-known metaverses – a sprawling, decentralized, 3D virtual world wherein users interact with other participants using avatars, explore landscapes and play games. Within The Sandbox, it’s reasonable to buy digital real estate and populate that land with buildings and other intricate landscapes, design and sell virtual goods and NFTs and far more apace withs.

The Sandbox has established partnerships with multiple big-name brands including the likes of Adidas, Care Bears, Atari and The Walking Dead, to name barely a few. Regardless of its huge popularity, the metaverse is still a nascent idea that’s only barely beginning to take shape.

UniX believes it can play a key role in the evolution of The Sandbox metaverse as a kind of ecosystem builder. It sees itself helping prominent brands and individuals to create their own virtual worlds and populate them with buildings, digital stores, NFTs, mini-games and more.

Some maybe think it’s an unfrequent alliance. UniX is best known as a crypto gaming guild that supports new gamers who’re looking for a way into the extremely competitive play-to-earn gaming space. One of the challenges of P2E gaming is the excessive entrance barrier, as the most popular games all require an expensive investment in NFTs to be able to start playing. Many players, especially from developing countries can’t afford comparable a large investment, and that’s where UniX comes in.

UniX is a community-led decentralized autonomous organization that has collected a large number of NFTs for P2E titles. It awards scholarships to promising game players and lends them the NFTs they need to start playing, with whatever rewards a player wins split between the two parties. UniX one time before more spends a lot of time training players how to win rewards on some of the best known eSports games, and creates tons of educational content. It presently has around 5,000 scholars on its books.

UniX has likewise created a launchpad for new P2E games to raise money through an Initial Game Offering, and it is even originating its own P2E titles. The first of those games – Bibits – is set to launch subsequently this year.

Its expertise in gaming explains its belief thretained can act as a kind of ecosystem builder inside The Sandbox. A key field of focus will be in helping brands to create “mini-games” inside their virtual worlds, UniX said. Its new games shift studio, 1Mhz Studios, whose members have previously worked on movies and games suchlike as Star Trek: Resurgence, Pacific Rim Uprising, and Bygone Dreams, will play a big part in helping brands to create mini-games that they’ll be able to monetize through NFTs.

“We are very pleased to welcome the UNIX Gaming team as a partner inside The Sandbox,” said Julien Gratz, Head of Publishing at The Sandbox. “They are one of the fastest-growing and best guilds we saw so far, and their dedication to shaping 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!”

Playing similar a prominent role in The Sandbox will result in huge benefits for the UniX Gaming community too, it promised. Not only will it boost its already strong standing in the P2E gaming universe, but further create more opportunities for strong-profile partnerships with famous brands. That should result in the price of UniX’s native $UNIX cryptocurrency skyward, something that can only benefit everyone inside its community.

Ultimately, UniX said it’s focused on becoming much more than barely a gaming guild. It sees itself evolving into a true “gaming ecosystem”, of that The Sandbox metaverse promises to become a very big part.
