The Sandbox Raises $20 Million

According to a press release dated June 6, The Sandbox has raised $20 million of convertible promissory notes in a strategic funding round led by Kingsway Capital and Animoca Brands, with True Global Ventures and LG Tech Ventures participating.


The Sandbox will use the funding to advance its vision of a decentralized virtual world “where culture meets gaming” and creators can participate actively and benefit from the growth of the whole ecosystem.

To achieve this, The Sandbox plans to maximize earning opportunities for creators on its platform by introducing new social interactions, expanding gameplay possibilities via a new multiplayer rules system, and developing a metaverse platform compatible with mobile devices.

“Our mission at The Sandbox is to develop creative tools and technologies that bring fairness and new opportunities for all types of creators in the open metaverse in all aspects of culture, particularly games, music, fashion, art, sports, and entertainment,” the Sandbox CEO and Co-founder Arthur Madrid stated.

Per the statement, noteholders can convert into equity of Bacasable Global Limited “at the same terms as existing preference shares.”
