About The Position
The Sandbox is a decentralized community-driven gaming, digital art, and game development ecosystem where creators and designers can create and monetize their art NFTs, art experience and gaming experiences on the Ethereum blockchain.
The Game Maker Fund is an initiative that supports game designers in The Sandbox.
The main purpose is to reward and incentivize those who have proven skills in game design or digital world design to help them produce and publish excellent games and other experiences (such as galleries, educational dioramas, and so on) for players of The Sandbox to visit, play and enjoy. The designers will also be able to monetize this experience when it is launched.
