On Tuesday, June 28, The Sandbox reported that it has completed its transition to the Ethereum Polygon layer 2 protocol. This will increase transaction speeds, reduce fees, and reduce the environmental impact of the blockchain.
First rumors about The Sandbox’s transition to Polygon appeared at the beginning of the year. As early as February, The Sandbox administration added mSAND token-stacking capabilities to the new ecosystem.
In April, the platform migrated LAND to a new smart contract, noting that this was part of the preparation for the transition to Polygon. At the same time, The Sandbox bore all the costs of the “migration.”
And now, on June 28, the site has completed the rollout of LAND on the new network. On the official site of the “sandbox” there is a guide for users, describing the innovations and benefits of the transition to the second level.
What is Polygon?
It is a scaling solution for the second tier of the Ethereum blockchain. Unlike ETH, Polygon is based on PoS. This makes it more environmentally friendly and less costly.
The move to the new network has certain advantages: low gas fees, high transaction speeds and a near-zero carbon footprint.
Deployment of new LAND tokens, the addition of multipliers when stacking, and new features will only be available to users who have completed the transfer of their assets to the Polygon network.
The Sandbox has its own bridge, which will speed up the transition to the new platform. At the same time, the administration assures that the value of assets, as well as their usefulness within the “sandbox” will not change.
How do I move my assets to the Polygon network?
Detailed instructions are available on the official website. There you will also find the new addresses. Here we will only briefly describe the procedure:
- Go to the official website of The Sandbox.
- Select the profile tab.
- In the drop-down menu, click on the “bridge” category.
- The site will redirect you to a page with a transition feature. Then just follow the prompts.
