[Grant Proposal] Eco Culture Development in Thesandbox Metaverse

The proposal is for an initial grant of 256.278 ECO ($5,000) (rate: $0.01951 2nd Apr 2023) for development 1st eco multiplayer experiences (2 LAND) in Thesandbox metaverse based on eco culture.


We can see many brands from artist, crypto project, web3 people, game industry, and more. Already own Land in the sandbox and they develop experiences / games for their community. This is great opportunity to growth our community.

Benefit of eco multiplayer game experiences in thesandbox :

  • Attract various crypto communities.
  • Play to earn points / $ECO / other currencies.
  • Social hub in metaverse.

I have learned thesandbox game maker and voxedit software since March 23. I have participate in Thesandbox game jam contest 3 times and winning in the Ragnarok Game Jam (my 3rd game jam) as top 10 Best Design.

This is probably a good idea, though I would add CryptoVoxels and any other 3D blockchain-based generic world as well.


Yeah, in the beginning we will focused development in the sandbox. I’m believe after team growing, we can develop in the others metaverse.

I support the proposal! Using this example (which has already shown itself successfully in the ECO Discord) of promoting a project through the Metaverses (and games, for example), one can not only attract young and advanced audiences from all over the world, but also enable the existing audience of the ECO Discord to see (and offer their own ) seemingly not obvious collaborations with other similar projects.

If we REALLY want to advertise though, we should be represented at the cryptocurrency conferences that take place throughout the world, throughout the year.

Sandbox is cool, but I’ve yet to see anyone effectively use it for true advertising.

Advertising is optional advantages. We focus to creating eco culture which for onboarding new member, creating a way for easily learning about eco.
Example :
I creating casual games → after player finished the game → I add requirement to claim rewards → must join our discord server and i give them points + raffle ticket ($500 pool prize for 10 raffle winners, each winner will received $50 in $ECO).

Initial grants is for recruiting people to join me and form as team. The biggest challenge is creating high quality social hub, should be finished in Q4 2023 as team + community. The social hub will be full of eco culture inside, we will bring eco team and eco community together live in the same place.

@Subspace IMO Sandbox + ECO is not about advertising, it’s about propaganda. If you want to advertise your product - do advertising, if you want to show a new way and new behavior - do propaganda.

I’m fine with that definition, though propaganda is often a negative term meaning convincing others by lying, but I think I get your point. That said, Sandbox does not impress me. It will come, and then it will go. The day it started, it was already old tech. The problem is that it locks the graphics engine, and forces devs to develop on it. As such, it might as well be Roblox, which at least is an actual game. Sandbox is just a giant room, with no purpose, much like Second Life.

I’m agree with you this thesandbox is old technology, like roblox. But, i have join their communities. I see there have great opportunity because the company already evolution to the web3 (roblox not yet do this)
You can see their partnership in the map above. We have opportunity to bring their community to join our community and also tell their community about eco. I’m not good about advertising, but the advertising concept should introducing product to customer faster than competitor.

After my team growth, we will development the eco culture in multi metaverse. :+1:

For the record, I endorsed this right at the beginning. We definitely should do this. But we need a LOT more exposure than just this.



okay great, all suggestions noted !!

I really like the idea that we can start with Sandbox and move to other blockchain-based worlds to establish ECO presence and promote our mission. Web3 is changing really fast and we should be ready to move to the next big Metaverse platform, if it will appear in the future.


Sandbox already even PlayBoy cooperate, I support the proposal.

More specific information about the use of funds would be appreciated! You gonna hire somebody and buy him PC/table and chair? Or is there also some $/hour calculations included?

I will buy a PC if a friend or someone wants to join my team from beginning. (we will being the founders and focus on goals)
If I don’t get the founder I’ll hire someone on fiverr and paid him.

Currently, I’m solo developer. I also want to run voxedit / sandbox game maker education, maybe I’ll find the founders in graduated student haha.

Initial grants $5k already enough to start my plan
