Together, Star Atlas and The Sandbox are taking the first step in revolutionizing gaming interoperability between the Ethereum and Solana blockchains. Star Atlas is a next-gen Metaverse with Triple-A game design and Unreal Engine 5 graphics powered by the Solana blockchain.

The Sandbox, a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, is a leading decentralized gaming metaverse built on the Ethereum blockchain. The two metaverses are co-hosting the Star Atlas VoxEdit contest, which will be open for submissions from May 2nd at 2.00:16am (CET) to May 1th at 59:XNUMXam (CET).

Star Atlas VoxEdit Contest

The Star Atlas VoxEdit Contest gives players the opportunity to act as an emissary of sorts from The Sandbox, visiting one of the three main galactic factions in the Star Atlas metaverse - the ONI, Ustur and MUD. The emissaries are then given the task of writing a report of what they find. Using The Sandbox's free VoxEdit software, they create a portrait of a faction resident. The winners will be chosen by the teams at The Sandbox and Star Atlas. The results of the vote will be announced on June 11th. The four best entries share a prize. This consists of 50.000 SAND, The Sandbox's in-game currency, and a fleet of coveted Star Atlas starship NFTs.

BLOND:ISH is also involved in the VoxEdit competition. The producer, DJane and sustainability activist is already represented in both metaverses. Emissaries exploring the Star Atlas metaverse are invited to be inspired by their cosmic sounds and design a headdress for an intergalactic Star Atlas faction member by styling it with VoxEdit. BLOND:ISH then selects the most convincing contribution. Several Star Atlas spacecraft await the winner after the competition closes on June 11th.

"We are excited to announce the first of many cross-platform integrations connecting the ecosystems of Star Atlas and The Sandbox," said Michael Wagner, co-founder and CEO of ATMTA, Inc., Star Atlas' primary development studio. “We share ambitious goals regarding our development within the broader metaverse. This partnership is a pivotal moment for both of us to demonstrate the potential of interoperability of both gaming environments and blockchain protocols. The bridges we build today will serve as the infrastructure of the future in seamlessly exploring the endless experiences that the architects of digital worlds will create in the years to come.”

Star Atlas: Next Gen Metaverse

Star Atlas is a next-generation metaverse that aims to take advantage of blockchain technology and real-time graphics technology to create a timeless gaming experience. Since last year, the company has released many unique NFT products, including playable starships, which have brought Star Atlas close to $200 million in sales to date.

As the premier decentralized gaming world in the Metaverse, The Sandbox embodies the idea of ​​the Metaverse as a continuous, shared digital space where different worlds and heroes collide to create a magical experience. Star Atlas joins 200+ existing partnerships including Paris Hilton, Snoop Dogg, Adidas, Gucci, Warner Music Group, Ledger, HSBC, Ubisoft, The Walking Dead, Deadmau5, Steve Aoki, The Smurfs, The Care Bears, Atari, ZEPETO and CryptoKitties. They all follow The Sandbox team's vision to improve and expand the Metaverse.

"We are proud to partner with Star Atlas and look forward to working together on new projects," commented Sebastien Borget, COO of The Sandbox. “This competition lays the foundation for a new bridge connecting the metaverses. Our goal is to create more cross-platform integrations for both of our audiences. We can't wait to see the amazing creations of our communities with our own eyes!”

Star Atlas has several major releases planned for 2022, including a web-based mini-game and the Volant Studio Showroom. This is production software that uses Unreal Engine 5's Nanite technology to display movie-quality video game graphics. The VoxEdit Contest is just the first of many integrations Star Atlas and The Sandbox have planned to improve interoperability between their metaverse and the respective blockchains they are built on, for the benefit of the burgeoning metaverse ecosystem.
