The Sandbox has released the 2022 Land Owner roadmap, which has exciting perks and benefits for LAND Owners. The Sandbox has expressed its intention to grow and build the Metaverse with landowners in this roadmap. The roadmap states various features such as claiming, staking, buying $LAND tokens, and huge $SAND airdrops worth $5 million. A Sandbox discord AMA session will be hosted on May 20, 2022, at 3 PM UTC to further discuss all the programs with LAND Owners.
Perks of being a LAND owner in The Sandbox
LAND owners will gain more priority than other players in The Sandbox’s upcoming Alpha Season 3. LAND owners can stake $SAND per LAND and can earn up to 90% in return. $10 million worth of $SAND has been allocated just for LAND Owners for staking. The $SAND airdrop value will be doubled to $5 million for all LAND owners, and the second round of exclusive $SAND drop for LAND owners will happen in September 2022.

According to the new staking system, you have to own LAND for staking, and the maximum SAND that can be staked has also been capped.
What is LAND in The Sandbox?
LAND is NFT or digital asset in The Sandbox metaverse that allows players to buy and own a Land. An estate consists of multiple lands. Players can customize lands for playing, exploring, and hosting friends. You can charge players to play games on your LAND and sell your land for profit. In short, LAND ownership allows you to participate in gameplay, host games, and organize contests on your land.
What is The Sandbox?
The Sandbox is one of the blockchain-powered virtual worlds currently in development. The Sandbox consists of customizable lands with voxel-based entities. Visually it will remind many gamers of Minecraft, as both games have this Lego-inspired look to them. However, players are able to buy virtual land and implement any form of monetization. These virtual lands can become mini-games, adventures, virtual shops, extensions of actual webshops, a space for social gatherings, and so on.
The Sandbox provides free tools for developers, gamers, and content creators. Creators can use VoxEdit to create voxel-based objects for use in-game. And with the Game Maker users can make all sorts of interactive experiences! The Sandbox will also create a meta-gaming experience. Players can for example do daily quests or weekly quests for their guild. This will earn players SAND, which they can sell or use to buy in-game items or virtual land.
