Many ETH fanboys are anticipating the big Merge coming next week, the merge is expected to happen on September 15, 2022.

But what does this mean for Sandbox and have they expressed their support?

Will Sandbox Support ETH Merge?

Sandbox has officially announced its support for the proof of stake (POS) network.

This is important to note as The Sandbox platform will no longer support any proof of work (PoW) after the Merge has taken place.

If you’re holding any tokens on the network, there is no need to worry. The change will occur automatically so you don’t need to do anything.

If you’re holding any digital assets such as $SAND, NFTs, or land in the Sandbox, they will automatically exist on the ETH PoS chain.

They also recommend users don’t interact with any ETH PoW forks as the merge is happening.

As the ETH merge is rolling out on September 15th. All Ethereum features in the Sandbox will be temporarily disabled until its complete. This means features such as minting, claiming and the marketplace will not be available.

Many are worried about whether the merge will go smoothly or not. Well, there are bound to be some hiccups along the way so there’s nothing we can do but watch and see what happens. The ETH merge, if pulled off successfully will be one of the greatest technological feats in crypto.

It’s exciting times to be involved in the space!
