As our team continues to push toward greater overall project ecosystem sustainability, milestones along the way are always incredible reminders of the impact that our progress is making. Today, we couldn’t be more excited to announce that since first deploying on Polygon with the help of, our community has now completed 1,000,000 gasless transactions!

Alongside that incredible milestone, we’ve had 200,000 unique users benefit from this feature and 18,000 MATIC paid by The Sandbox in place of our users. This is only the beginning!

Before diving into what’s next, here’s a brief recap of our journey so far:

  • January 2022: First implementation of gasless transactions on the LAND migration, allowing our users to migrate their LAND to the new contract without a single cost.
  • February 2022: The Sandbox teams up with Biconomy
  • February 2022: Implementation of gasless transactions (The Sandbox pays the gas fees for the users) and also the fees payable in SAND, but also fees payable in SAND (users can pay gas fees in SAND instead of MATIC) thanks to Biconomy tools on both staking and claim pages.
  • November 2022: Performed first gasless LAND Sales.

Moving forward, we plan to deploy the gasless transactions and the fees payable in SAND on all other features available on Polygon, including avatar minting, marketplace, asset minting, and many more.

Building on Polygon offers us the opportunity to reduce our carbon footprint and optimize on-chain transactions to reduce costs for our community. We couldn’t be more excited to continue along this path as pioneers of developing a greener metaverse ecosystem!
