LOGAN Welbaum made the equivalent of about $5,000 after spending ‘several hours’ playing The Sandbox Metaverse game.
A former employee of Facebook and Google, Welbaum was lucky enough to join The Sandbox alpha.
Sandbox’s play for money option is only available to alpha ticket holders, with whom he was lucky enough to win a lottery.
Talking to Business Insider, Welbaum explained that he is already a LAND owner, which gives him a chance to win an Alpha Pass in the LAND owner lottery.
Just 1,000 passes have been destined for the lottery, with each participant in the LAND-owned grid getting one more entry, effectively.
There are also daily contests on social media, while OpenSea is recommended for those who want to participate, as some Alpha Pass owners are selling theirs instead of participating.
In the first season of alpha, Welbaum said that he played for just a few hours and earned himself 1,000 SAND.
That’s just under $5,000 based on current trading prices, which isn’t bad for less than a day of gameplay.
Sandbox Alpha Season two is available has been confirmedand Welbaum recommend following the game’s social media accounts to receive a drop in the next Alpha round.
If you are a LAND owner like him, your chances of winning will be much higher.
Welbaum didn’t just buy digital real estate in The Sandbox – he also spent $2,000 in Decentraland’s MANA tokens to receive parcels there.
That investment has also shown great profitability; Welbaum said the sale prices of adjacent lots suggest his value could be around $40,000.
