Here is a detailed guide on how to create an account on The Sandbox.

Create an account on The Sandbox

To create an account on The Sandbox, you need to have a cryptocurrency wallet. You can attach an existing cryptocurrency wallet that you own, or you can create a new one. Cryptocurrency wallets are free to create.
We will cover how to register an account on The Sandbox with the supported cryptocurrency wallets on the platform.
It is important to note that the type of wallet that you will connect to your account at The Sandbox depends on the method of registration that you choose. You cannot change your wallet once it is connected to our account, so make sure you choose the correct option.
The currently supported wallets at The Sandbox are:
  • MetaMask (Registration method: Web3. Set-up difficulty: Medium)
  • Coinbase (Registration method: Web3. Set-up difficulty: Medium)
  • Bitski (Registration method: Email (except Gmail). Set-up difficulty: Easy)
  • Venly (Registration method: Social Network or Gmail. Set-up difficulty: Effortless)
If you use a hardware wallet, such as Ledger, you may want to choose the MetaMask option of registering , as MetaMask allows some hardware wallets to be integrated with it.

Which wallet do you recommend?

This is entirely up to you.
MetaMask is the most popular wallet on the Ethereum blockchain and within The Sandbox. However, it is mainly preferred by those with some experience in cryptocurrency and blockchain interaction. Registration may take a few minutes.
Coinbase might be preferred by cryptocurrency traders who exchange cryptocurrency a lot, in order to avoid having to pay additional gas fees to transfer the funds to another wallet. Registration may take a few minutes.
Bitski is easy to set up and would probably be preferred by those with little cryptocurrency or blockchain experience. Registration may take around two minutes.
Venly requires no effort to set up at all and would likely be preferred by those who are completely new to cryptocurrency and the blockchain. Registration may take around one minute.
The Sandbox recommends using a hardware wallet in addition to your software wallet, for added extra security. MetaMask allows you to integrate some hardware wallets with it.
Always keep your login information secret, safe and secure. Your cryptocurrency wallet in time could potentially be worth hundreds or thousands in your national currency!
Never give out your passwords. Never give out your seed phrases. Never let anyone you do not trust use your computer account (if your wallet has a browser extension).
