Open metaverse The Sandbox announces it is partnering with cyber security firm Ledger. As part of the cooperation, Ledger will receive a property in The Sandbox where the company will build its security and education hub. There, users are given access to special gamified training courses in which they are playfully informed about protective measures for crypto assets on Web3.
The Sandbox, a leading decentralized gaming metaverse and subsidiary of Animoca Brands, and Ledger, the world's leading crypto and web3 hardware and software security company, will be collaborating going forward. As part of the partnership, Ledger is making its best-in-class security technology available to users of The Sandbox.
The Sandbox: 2,2 million users
Through the cooperation, the 2,2 million registered users of The Sandbox will benefit from essential security features, support and best practices. In addition, millions of Ledger users in over 180 countries can secure their possessions in the Metaverse.
The Sandbox and Ledger aim to put a stop to scammers and hackers in the cryptocurrency and NFT scene. Through unique experiences, the aim is to provide the community with the knowledge to protect their crypto assets.
Together, The Sandbox and Ledger are creating an attractive and safe space for crypto newbies as the open metaverse continues to grow. The sandbox gaming platform provides the perfect environment for users to learn through unique, gamified experiences with the support of the Ledger team.
In return, The Sandbox is providing the Ledger team with 36 LANDs to build their security and education hub in the Metaverse, which also includes an Office Hours bar. There, users can get in direct contact with Ledger customer support. Other basic support features are also offered, such as a school that offers access to unique gamified educational experiences and the Ledger Academy.
Ledger and The Sandbox firmly believe that learning is best initiated through direct experience. As such, Ledger leverages a core value proposition of The Sandbox - digital ownership in games - to create playful educational experiences. In collaboration with creative agency Swipe Back, experiences are created that reward players with unique collectibles. At the same time, a benefit will be created around these prizes to give winners access to further exclusive experiences.
However, the collaboration goes beyond the essential informational and educational aspect: Ledger's world-class devices offer users the safest and most enjoyable experience to immerse themselves in the sandbox metaverse.
Ledger will also manufacture exclusive co-branded hardware for LAND owners in The Sandbox to enable them to best protect their digital assets. Additionally, The Sandbox Marketplace will be integrated with Ledger Live to allow users to access their assets and collectibles directly from their secure device.
“The Metaverse should provide limitless opportunities for creators and communities to easily co-create and share ideas and experiences,” comments Sebastien Borget, COO and co-founder of The Sandbox. “We partnered with Ledger to implement these experiences, evolve them and provide easy access. As The Sandbox grows, we are particularly concerned with balancing user autonomy with their security. Ledger is the perfect partner to help us implement innovative ideas while protecting user assets in The Sandbox.”
"Anyone using the Web3 should know how to protect their assets from hackers and scammers," said Ian Rogers, Chief Experience Officer at Ledger. “Partnering with The Sandbox enables Ledger to deliver unique Metaverse initiatives in the areas of education, security and support. We're always finding new ways to keep our users safe wherever they are. The LedgerVerse will enable them to learn how to properly store their keys, protect their assets and move safely through the Web3.”
