The partnership between the innovative heavyweights will work toward establishing a seamless route between the protocols for users.
A press release from Star Atlas on April 27 stated that the relationship between the two metaverse environments begins with the Star Atlas VoxEdit contest which opens for submissions on May 2 and runs until May 15. The contest will see users adopt the role of ‘envoy’, embarking from The Sandbox to one of the main galactic factions on the Star Atlas metaverse. The ‘Envoys’ will then create a findings report by designing a portrait of one of the fiction’s inhabitants using The Sandbox’s free VoxEdit software. Winners will be chosen by both projects with the top four splitting 50,000 SAND, which is just over $100,000, at the time of writing.
“We’re 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., the principal development studio of Star Atlas. “We share ambitious goals with respect to our developments within the broader metaverse, and we see this relationship as a pivotal moment to demonstrate the potential of interoperability of both game environments and blockchain protocols.”
The collaborative initiative may be a signal of things to come as the broader space begins to understand the benefits of allowing users to roam from one chain to the other. Wagner’s recognition of this being the first of many cross-platform integrations to come sets the tone.
Star Atlas has seen significant success this year, with the organization introducing a range of NFT products to market, including playable spaceships, that have generated around $200 million in revenue to date. The Sandbox has also seen its metaverse lead the GameFi sector, as well as securing over 200 partnerships with the likes of Adidas, Gucci and HSBC.
“We are proud to be partnering with Star Atlas and are excited to develop new projects with the franchise,” said Sebastien Borget, COO of The Sandbox. “This contest is the beginning of a new bridge linking metaverses to each other, with the goal to bring more content and cross-platform integration to both of our audiences. We can’t wait to see the amazing assets that our communities will create!”
What is Star Atlas:
Star Atlas is a virtual gaming metaverse based in 2620, where three major factions have emerged. These factions are struggling for resources, territorial conquest, and political domination. Players can influence the outcome of this intergalactic conflict while earning real monetary rewards for their contributions.
The metaverse builds a unique PlayToEarn (P2E) experience by blending the Solana blockchain with traditional game mechanics, powered by Unreal Engine 5’s cutting-edge visuals.

What is The Sandbox:
The Sandbox describes itself as a virtual world where players can build, own and monetize their gaming experiences and assets inside an immense virtual world.
The Sandbox offers a suite of tools tailor-made to empower players to come together and create engaging experiences across their ‘metaverse’.
They are focused on offering users what can best be described as a canvas, which an array of different tools for creation are then afforded. Ultimately the user then has the chance to monetize their own worlds.
