The Sandbox, in collaboration with the newly launched game platform, People of Crypto Lab, is set to launch the first-ever diversity, equity, and Inclusivity program. The program will launch on June 24 at the “Belonging Week” event. To celebrate gamers’ differences, The Sandbox will start its Alpha Season 3 earlier than planned.
The event aims to boldly reaffirm the significance of an equitable Web3. It is worth mentioning that People of Crypto Lab (POC) has the goal of creating a “cultureverse”. It also aims to invest in and amplify communities and creators with different teams, projects, and stories.
