The Sandbox is proud to announce the acquisition of the Uruguayan company Cualit, a full-stack development technology firm experienced in gaming, to boost its Web3 and blockchain innovation and development capabilities.

The Sandbox has had a close partnership with Cualit for over a year and will work with Martin and Frederico Perez, the two brothers who co-founded the company, to significantly boost the team’s growth through additional resources and infrastructure. Cualit will become The Sandbox Uruguay, expanding The Sandbox global team and accelerating growth of its ambitious metaverse ecosystem.

Cualit has been instrumental in decentralizing the tech industry in Uruguay by applying blockchain frameworks and technologies to competitive projects over the past 10 years. It has built innovative digital experiences for leading brands, empowering digital transformation in the country and reinforcing its presence as an innovative hub for technology and software development. In its new identity as The Sandbox Uruguay, the team will focus its efforts on accelerating development of The Sandbox.

With a quality education system and many prominent Fintech companies, Uruguay is an ideal location for The Sandbox’s second development office in South America, alongside the existing Argentina development team responsible for the Game Client and Game Maker. To further enhance The Sandbox Uruguay’s capabilities, The Sandbox plans to leverage local Web3 talent to increase the team’s size of approximately 90 technology professionals in the near future, boosting to 150 people in Latin America.

“Web3 technology is rapidly evolving and we believe The Sandbox Uruguay will help us to onboard millions of users through their expertise in web design and user flow,” said Arthur Madrid, CEO and Co-Founder of The Sandbox. “Uruguay is a fantastic place to invest in technology and we see a new generation of developers who want to rethink the way we are using and owning our data through the open metaverse.”

“As The Sandbox Uruguay, we are empowered to raise a new hub of talent for all of Latin America, fueling growth for The Sandbox and the region,” said Martin and Frederico Perez, Directors of The Sandbox Uruguay. “We look forward to rapidly expanding our team and taking our contribution to the metaverse to the next level with additional investment, resources, and shared learning across The Sandbox global team.”

“The Sandbox Uruguay will adds a technology-driven team to support the development of critical tools and infrastructure such as the Dashboard, the Marketplace, publishing tools, data analysis, and data flows that power The Sandbox platform,” said Sebastien Borget, COO and Co-Founder of The Sandbox. “This acquisition will help us rapidly scale the play-and-earn adoption by our growing ecosystem of both partner brands and the UGC Creators Economy.”

Once again, we’re very excited to welcome our Urugayan friends in the company! As a final note, we’d like to remind our community that The Sandbox is hiring globally and current opportunities can be found at
