The Sandbox and Ledger partner to increase security and ease-of-use for users

The Sandbox, a decentralised gaming metaverse and a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, and Ledger, the  hardware and software security company in crypto and Web3, have partnered to bring Ledger’s security technology to The Sandbox’s global user base. The partnership will empower The Sandbox’s 2.2 million registered users with essential security, support, and best practices, as well as engage Ledger’s millions of users in over 180 countries to secure their metaverse holdings. Both The Sandbox and Ledger are working to substantially reduce the number of hacks and scams in the cryptocurrency and NFT space by creating unique experiences that serve to educate and empower community members to safeguard their crypto assets.

The Sandbox and Ledger are creating an appealing and safe space for crypto newcomers and beginners as the open metaverse expands. The Sandbox gaming platform provides the perfect environment for users to learn through unique gamified Ledger experiences while enjoying support from the Ledger team.

As part of the partnership, The Sandbox will provide the Ledger team with 36 LANDs to build its security and education hub in the metaverse, which will include basic support functions, such as an office hours bar, where The Sandbox users will be in direct contact with Ledger’s customer support, as well as a school where users will be able to access unique gamified education experiences and Ledger’s Academy. 

Ledger and The Sandbox both believe that learning is best accomplished via direct experience, therefore Ledger will tap into a core value proposition of The Sandbox – digital ownership in gaming – to design educational gamified experiences. Built alongside creative agency Swipe Back, these experiences will reward gamers with unique collectibles while building utility around these prizes to provide the winners with access to exclusive experiences.

The collaboration extends beyond the essential aspect of ensuring that users are well informed on how to protect themselves in the metaverse: Ledger’s best-in-class hardware devices will provide The Sandbox users with the most secure and accessible experience to access The Sandbox and its various digital assets. 

Ledger will also produce exclusive co-branded Ledger hardware devices for The Sandbox LAND owners to enable them to safeguard their digital assets. Moreover, The Sandbox’s marketplace will eventually be integrated into Ledger Live to enable users to access its assets and collectibles directly from within the security of their device. 

“The metaverse should offer limitless possibilities for creators and communities to collaborate, build, and share ownership of ideas and experiences in a worry-free way. We’ve joined forces with Ledger to further develop, enable, and secure these experiences with easy on-ramps. As The Sandbox metaverse grows, we’re putting emphasis on balancing user autonomy with security. Ledger is the perfect partner to help us innovate while protecting users’ assets in The Sandbox,” said The Sandbox COO and co-founder Sebastien Borget. 

“Anyone using Web3 should understand how to secure their assets from hackers and scammers. This partnership with The Sandbox enables Ledger to launch unique metaverse initiatives for education, security, and support. We will always create new ways to provide security for our users, wherever they are. The LedgerVerse will enable you to learn how to own your keys, protect your assets, and experience Web3 securely,” said Ledger chief experience officer Ian Rogers.
