LAB51 on The Sandbox Tokens

Token unlocks are typically bearish for digital asset prices, as they unfreeze liquidity and inject it into the open market. This can lead to a sell-off as investors take profits. In the case of SAND, the unlock exacerbated the bearish sentiment built in the market for the past month.

Despite the recent price volatility, The Sandbox continues to onboard new users and partners. On July 28th, the company announced a partnership with the British Museum to make artifacts from the museum’s collection more accessible to the public. This partnership is a major coup for The Sandbox, and it could help to attract new users to the Metaverse.

The recent token unlock has had a negative impact on the price of SAND. However, The Sandbox continues to grow and onboard new users, which could help to support the price of the token in the long term.
